‘I was molested and passed around’: Corey Feldman describes his ordeal at the hands of Hollywood pedophile ring and says Corey Haim was just eleven years old when he was first raped

  • Former child star Corey Feldman said that he was molested repeatedly by men who would pass him and other minors around
  • He said that when he was 15 he was being abused by a man who was actually employed by his own father at the management company he ran 
  • Reveals that Corey Haim was raped when he was just 11-years-old
  • Feldman says the abuse he and Haim suffered was widely known
  • Haim would struggle with drugs up until his death in 2010 at the age of 38
  • Feldman shot to fame in his teens thanks to his roles in Goonies and Stand by Me 

Corey Feldman has shared shocking details about the rampant sexual abuse he and other young actors were forced to endure during their years in Hollywood.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman discusses how he was repeatedly molested by adult males in the industry, saying these men would pass many young stars ‘back and forth to each other.’

He also reveals that his closest friend, Corey Haim, was raped when he was just 11 by a producer, the start of a long cycle of sexual abuse that Feldman believes led to his friend’s problems with drugs and alcohol later in life.

Haim would struggle with drugs up until his death in 2010 at the age of 38, a death that Feldman blames on the men who abused the actor.

Feldman’s comments come just days after another former child star, Elijah Wood, also gave an interview talking about the pedophilia problem in Hollywood.

‘He had more direct abuse than I did. With me, there were some molestations and it did come from several hands, so to speak, but with Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape,’ said Feldman of the sexual abuse suffered by Haim.

‘And his also occurred when he was 11. My son is 11 now and I can’t even begin to fathom the idea of something like that happening to him. It would destroy his whole being.’

Feldman then made the shocking claim that many people in the industry were aware that he and Haim were being abused by these older men, and that no one did anything to stop it or help the boys.

‘This person uses intimidation and threats as a way to keep people quiet. And all these men were all friends,’ explained Feldman.

‘Ask anybody in our group of kids at that time: They were passing us back and forth to each other. [Alison Arngrim] from Little House on the Prairie said [in an interview], “Everybody knew that the two Coreys were just being passed around.”

‘Like it was something people joked about on studio lots. We’re not talking about huge executives and directors that I am aware of that were involved in this. The people that I knew doing it were publicists, they were photographers for teen magazines, things like that.’

Feldman said that it was generally actors between the ages of 10 and 16 who were targeted by these men, who would meet their young victims at awards shows, private parties and even charity functions.

Once these adults had decided on a victim they began the process of grooming not only the child actor Feldman explained but also their parent or guardian.

Feldman said that when he was 15 he was being abused by a man who was actually employed by his own father at the management company he ran, and that neither one of his parents had any idea.

He also chalked up their ignorance to the fact that both were ‘very abusive and very selfish.’

One thing Feldman does not, or rather cannot, discuss however is the names of the individuals who molested him and raped Haim.

Feldman said that even though he would like to identify the men responsible he has to keep it quiet for legal reasons and since the statute of limitations has passed on the crimes.

‘We should be talking to the district attorneys and the lawmakers in California, especially because this is where the entertainment industry is and this is a place where adults have more direct and inappropriate connection with children than probably anywhere else in the world,’ said Feldman.

In the interview Feldman also made it clear that the sexual abuse of children by adults is not only still a problem in Hollywood, but one that is getting worse with time.

‘They reach out to little kids on Twitter, they reach out to little kids on Facebook, and they say, “I’m a big producer and I can help you,”‘ said Feldman.

‘With social media we have more access than ever to everybody. It’s a growing problem, not a shrinking problem.’

One of the men who molested him still works in the industry Feldman said, adding that while he has run in to him over the years he has never tried to confront the man.

He said that he has been helped by years of therapy and rehab, and makes it clear that it was a long and difficult struggle to get to the place he is at now with ‘a great child and I have a great girlfriend, a nice house, a nice car and a good career.’

And he said that the most difficult part of it all was losing Haim.

‘He was my best friend. I miss the chemistry, I miss having my best friend,’ said Feldman.

‘He was the only person that could make me laugh unstoppably. He had a charisma about him and a charm and a sense of humor that was unparalleled.’

Haim was one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, with leading roles in films including Lucas, Watchers and the Oscar-nominated Murphy’s Romance, which he starred in alongside Sally Field and James Garner.

Feldman also found early success in Hollywood thanks to his roles in two of the decade’s most memorable films, Goonies and Stand By Me.

The boys first worked together on the 1987 vampire flick The Lost Boys, and paired up again in the films License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream.

Haim was quite the ladies man too over the years, dating Alyssa Milano, Nicole Eggert, Holly Fields and even Victoria Beckham at one point.

Feldman and Haim had a chance to share the screen once more in 2007 with their reality show The Two Coreys, which was cancelled after two seasons.

It was a little over a year after that last season aired that Haim died as a result of drug induced pneumonia.

Feldman previously wrote about Haim spending time with Martin Weiss (above), a well known manager of child actors, while they were filming The Lost Boys. Weiss was arrested in 2011 after one of his clients told police he had been sexually abused by the man starting when he was just 11-years-old

Feldman detailed both his and Haim’s struggle with drugs in his 2013 book Coreyography.

In that book he revealed that the first time they tried cocaine was with two of the men who were abusing them.

Feldman also wrote in the book about Haim having sex with adult men on the set of Lucas and The Lost Boys, sharing a story he claims Haim told him one of the first times they met.

‘At some point during the filming [of Lucas], he explained an adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all “guys do,” wrote Feldman.

‘So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers, during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized.’

Feldman also wrote about Haim spending time with Martin Weiss, a well known manager of child actors, while they were filming The Lost Boys.

He claimed in the book that one day on set Haim, who was 15 during filming, was aroused and wanted to have sex.

‘Marty’s gay? Why don’t you ask him?’ wrote Feldman.

‘The two walked, single file, into the adjoining room. … I heard sounds, banging, thumping. I felt my stomach flip-flop. I felt sick.’

Weiss was arrested in 2011 after one of his clients told police he had been sexually abused by the man starting when he was just 11-years-old, claiming the incidents happened 30 to 40 times over a roughly three years period.

He eventually pleaded no contest to two counts of child molestation in 2012 and was sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation.

Weiss was immediately released after entering his plea for time served.

Feldman also detailed a night when he received oral sex from a man after he was fed a cocktail of drugs.

The abuse at the hands of that man, who he called ‘Ron’ in the book, went on for years after that first incident.

‘I don’t know why I couldn’t confront Ron, but I was consumed with guilt. I felt like the whole thing was my fault,’ wrote Feldman.

‘I desperately wanted him to stop, but I was afraid of losing my friend.’

Feldman said in his book that he did at one point name some of the men who abused himself and Haim to authorities, but claimed that they chose to ignore the allegations and allowed the statue of limitations to run out without conducting an investigation or pressing any charges.

He wrote that he eventually found shelter and solace in an unlikely place – with Michael Jackson.

‘I was shattered, disgusted, devastated. I needed some normalcy in my life. So, I called Michael Jackson,’ he wrote, explaining that the pair had been introduced by director Steven Spielberg.

‘Michael Jackson’s world, crazy as it sounds, had become my happy place. Being with Michael brought me back to my innocence. When I was with Michael, it was like being 10 years old again.’

He insisted in the book that Jackson never abused him or tried to touch him sexually over the course of their friendship.

88-Year-Old ‘Nazi Grandma’ Convicted

Holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck, 88, arrives for her trial at the Amtsgericht Tiergarten courthouse on October 16, 2017 .: 10_17_Ursula_Haverbeck© Getty Images/Steffi Loos 10_17_Ursula_Haverbeck An 88-year-old woman dubbed “Nazi Grandma” by the German press has been convicted of Holocaust denial.

Ursula Haverbeck was found guilty by a court after she denied at a Berlin event in 2016 the vast, systematic murder of Jews under Adolf Hitler. She has been sentenced to six months in jail.

Haverbeck has repeatedly downplayed or denied Nazi crimes. According to Deutsche Welle, in a TV appearance she has called the atrocity “the biggest and most sustainable lie in history.” She has also referred to an “Auschwitz lie” at a separate trial.

The right-wing activist is also set to face a courtroom once again in Detmold, a town in the West of the country, on November 23, appealing two guilty verdicts of incitement to hatred because of a letter she wrote to the town’s head of government and journalists, questioning the systematic slaughter of Jews between 1941 and 1945.

In 2008, authorities banned the right-wing education center, Collegium Humanum, that Haverbeck set up with her late husband, Werner Georg Haverbeck, who had been active in Hitler’s Nazi party leading up to and during World War II.

Stimme des Reiches [Voice of the Empire], a right-wing magazine, has carried Haverbeck’s writing, also denying the Holocaust’s existence.

In Germany, a range of actions promoting Nazism or downplaying the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime have been criminalized. According to an article on the website of the Holocaust memorial center Yad Vashem, German law prohibits “incitement, denial, approval of Nazism, trivialization or approval, in public or in an assembly, of actions of the National Socialist regime.”

Until a year ago the publication of Hitler’s racist autobiographical tract Mein Kampf was also banned. But when the copyright on the work, which had been owned by the state of Bavaria, ran out, the ban was lifted, and a heavily annotated version of the book designed for academic study was released in 2016.

VIDEO: Harvey Weinstein is secretly recorded during an NYPD sting operation (ABC News)

A police recording of Harvey Weinstein harassing a model in a New York hotel has been released by The New Yorker as the list of women accusing the film mogul grows.

In the recording Weinstein appears to confess to groping model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez as she repeatedly rebuffs his requests to join him in his hotel room.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office did not prosecute Weinstein at the time because it said it did not have enough evidence to make a case.

Here is the full transcript of the exchange that took place on March 27, 2015.

Weinstein: I’m telling you right now, get in here.

Gutierrez: What do we have to do here?

Weinstein: Nothing. I’m going to take a shower, you sit there and have a drink.

Gutierrez: I don’t drink.

Weinstein: Then have a glass of water.

Gutierrez: Can I stay on the bar?

Weinstein: No. You must come here now.

Gutierrez: No …

Weinstein: Please?

Gutierrez: No, I don’t want to.

Weinstein: I’m not doing anything with you, I promise. Now you’re embarrassing me.

Gutierrez: I know, I don’t want to. I’m sorry, I cannot.

Weinstein: No, come in here.

Gutierrez: No, yesterday was kind of aggressive for me.

Weinstein: I know —

Gutierrez: I need to know a person to be touched.

Weinstein: I won’t do a thing.

Gutierrez: I don’t want to be touched.

Weinstein: I won’t do a thing, please. I swear I won’t. Just sit with me. Don’t embarrass me in the hotel. I’m here all the time. Sit with me, I promise —

Gutierrez: I know, but I don’t want to.

Weinstein: Please sit there. Please. One minute, I ask you.

Gutierrez: No, I can’t.

Weinstein: Go to the bathroom.

Gutierrez: Please, I don’t want to do something I don’t want to.

Weinstein: Go to the bathroom — Hey, come here. Listen to me —

Gutierrez: I want to go downstairs.

Weinstein: I won’t do anything and you’ll never see me again after this. OK? That’s it. If you don’t – if you embarrass me in this hotel where I’m staying —

Gutierrez: I’m not embarrassing you —

Weinstein: Just walk —

Gutierrez: It’s just that I don’t feel comfortable.

Weinstein: Honey, don’t have a fight with me in the hallway.

Gutierrez: It’s not nothing, it’s —

Weinstein: Please. I’m not gonna do anything. I swear on my children. Please come in. On everything. I’m a famous guy.

Gutierrez: I’m, I’m feeling very uncomfortable right now.

Weinstein: Please come in. And one minute. And if you wanna leave when the guy comes with my jacket, you can go.

Gutierrez: Why yesterday you touch my breast?

Weinstein: Oh, please. I’m sorry. Just come on in. I’m used to that.

Gutierrez: You’re used to that?

Weinstein: Yes, come in.

Gutierrez: No, but I’m not used to that.

Weinstein: I won’t do it again. Come on, sit here. Sit here for a minute, please?

Gutierrez: No, I don’t want to.

Weinstein: If you do this now you will [unintelligible]. Now go. Bye. Never call me again. OK? I’m sorry, nice to have — I promise you I won’t do anything.

Gutierrez: I know, but yesterday was too much for me.

Weinstein: The guy is coming. I will never do another thing to you. Five minutes. Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.

Gutierrez: I know — but, it’s kind of, like, it’s too much for me. I can’t.

Weinstein: Please, you’re making a big scene here. Please.

Gutierrez: No, but I wanna leave.

Weinstein: OK, bye. Thank you.
