Actor Corey Feldman has sensationally claimed that his Lost Boys co-star Corey Haim was the victim of a paedophile who was also a Hollywood mogul.
The Lost Boys actor said he was ’literally surrounded’ by paedophiles at the age of 14, but didn’t realise ’until I was much older what they were and what they wanted.’
In a special report, ’Underage And Famous’ for ABC’s Nightline show, Feldman blamed former co-star Corey Haim’s death at the age 38 on the abuse he suffered at the hands of a ’Hollywood mogul’ he refused to name.
The 40-year-old former child star said that paedophiles were ’like vultures’ in the entertainment industry and alleged that the ’casting couch’ even applies to children.
The pair were two the Eighties biggest child stars, alongside River Phoenix, and in addition to The Lost Boys, Feldman starred in iconic eighties movies The Goonies, Stand By Me and The ’Burbs.
He told Nightline: ’The number one problem in Hollywood was, is and always will be paedophilia," he said.
’It’s all done under the radar... But it’s the big secret.’
’There was a circle of older men that surrounded themselves around this group of kids. And they they had power or connections to great power in the industry.
