As Feldman reached his teens, he befriended another Corey, Corey Haim. They appeared in three movies together: The Lost Boys, License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. After Haim passed away in 2010 – large quantities of drugs were found at his home, though the death was later ruled a natural one – Feldman began claiming to the media that Haim had been abused as well.
In Coreyography, he detailed an incident involving his friend. Haim, he said, had been raised in such a culture of child abuse that he believed it was normal. His unnamed abuser had told him that “all the guys in the entertainment world” were involved in pedophilia. After Haim asked Feldman for sex, Feldman explained to him that they were being abused.
Feldman was also close to Michael Jackson, the megastar singer who in 2005 went on trial for molestation. His feelings about Jackson seemed to be rather conflicted. That year he told ABC News that he had had a “sickening realization” about Jackson that had “created a question of doubt.” But in his biography, he was adamant that Jackson had never abused him or any other child.
