While Hollywood is reeling from the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the LAPD is launching a formal investigation. There are new allegations of pedophilia made by former child-star, Corey Feldman. And, Feldman isn’t the only one naming names.
According to an LAPD spokesperson, Feldman filed a formal complaint on Monday. In the report, he identifies Hollywood men who allegedly molested him when he was a child actor. The actor-turned rock singer also confirmed the complaint on Twitter.
He tweeted the seemingly animated message in all caps:
“IMPORTANT CAMPAIGN UPD8: I JUST COMPLETED A FORMAL SIT DOWN INTERVIEW W @LAPDHQ SPECIAL DIVISION, & GAVE THEM ALL THE INFO I KNOW! THIS WAS OFFICIALLY THE 1ST FORMAL REPORT EVER TAKEN ON ANY OF MY CASES, AS SBPD NEVER FOLLOWED UP BACK IN 1993, & HAS NO RECORD OF MY COMPLAINTS.”
Last week, Feldman revealed the identities of two alleged child molesters he claims took advantage of him and other child stars in the 1980s. Speaking on the Dr. Oz show, he alleged his former assistant and actor, Jon Grissom, was one of his first abusers.
“This guy on his My Space page and his Facebook page has got pictures of me and Corey Haim,” Feldman said during the interview. “He still taunts it and flaunts it.” Records show that Grissom has a long criminal history, including charges of assault, drugs, and theft.
Corey Haim and Charlie Sheen
Also, back in the news is Feldman’s best friend, Corey Haim. The two Coreys worked together on a number of ’80s films, including The Lost Boys. Sadly, Haim died of a drug overdose in 2010 at the age of 38.
In a 2011 interview on ABC’s Nightline, Feldman blamed his friend’s death on sexual abuse. “There’s one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim, and that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul,” he said.
Moreover, adding to the speculation is another of Haim’s close friends, actor Dominick Brascia. Brascia recently told the National Enquirer that actor Charlie Sheen sodomized Haim on the set of their 1986 film, Lucas.
However, Sheen, who is living with HIV, is vehemently denying the claims. “Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations,” a rep for Sheen told The Hollywood Reporter. Feldman mentioned the encounter without names, in his book Coreyography: A Memoir.
“At some point during the filming of [Lucas], [Haim] explained an adult male convinced him it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was ”what all guys do,” Feldman wrote.
Incidentally, President Trump has been working hard to crack down on pedophiles and human trafficking. In his first two months his office, the president has overseen the arrests of more than 1500 child predators.
