80′s Star Corey Feldman Pens “Coreyography” and Causes Riff with Corey Haim’s Mother [VIDEO]
I’m a child of the 80′s. I was born in 1976 but identify most with the landscape of the late 80′s / early 90′s pop culture. The “Corey’s” as they were known, were all over both the big and small screen, radio and plastered across every teeny bopper magazine on the planet. You couldn’t get any bigger than Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. All your girlfriends wanted to date them and secretly all the guys wanted to be them.
Corey Feldman recently released a very personal memoir called “Coreyography.“ I received an advance copy of the book and couldn’t put it down. I read the book in 3 days and its as “Real” as I was hoping it would be. He talks openly about his battle with drugs and alcohol over the years, the sexual abuse he encountered at a very early age and his friendship with the King of Pop; Michael Jackson. The subject that seems to be striking up the most controversy is the alleged sexual abuse his best friend Corey Haim suffered at the hands of very powerful Hollywood insider on the set of Haim’s first film “Lucas.” Haim’s mother Judy was “stunned and saddened” by what Feldman wrote about her late son in the book. She said what he wrote were “slanderous lies” and doesn’t plan on talking about it further.
Corey Feldman had a string of successful films in the late 80′s and early 90′s including “Gremlins“, “The Goonies“, “Stand By Me“, “The Lost Boys” and a reality show a few years ago with Corey Haim called the “The Two Coreys.” For those that weren’t in the know, Corey writes and produces his own music and hosts exclusive parties with “Corey’s Angels.”
