While Hollywood mourns the loss of ’80s idol and actor Corey Haim, our heart especially goes out to one person — Haim’s longtime and childhood pal, Corey Feldman.

Haim’s death actually marks the loss of two of Feldman’s close pals in under a year — he was also good friends with superstar Michael Jackson, who died of heart failure due to a Propofol overdose on Jun. 25, 2009.

At the time of Jackson’s death, he and Feldman — who began their friendship in the ’80s — were not on speaking terms.  Sadly, the situation was similar with Feldman and Haim.

Feldman and Haim co-starred together in several movies together, including: The Lost Boys, License to Drive, and Dream a Little Dream. In fact, they were so commonly recognized as an intertwined duo, they earned the name “The Two Coreys.”

But Haim always felt that he lived in Feldman’s shadows, a subject that was a part of their A&E reality show The Two Coreys.  But by early 2008, the two had stopped speaking. Feldman said he would not speak to Haim until he got sober, and told People magazine, “As a friend and somebody that cares deeply about the guy, I’m not going to watch him destroy himself.”  Haim insisted that was 10 months sober at the time of the falling out, but admitted he was still dealing with the pain of having been sexually abused as a child.

Strangely, Feldman also had a falling out with Michael Jackson in the years before his death. In 2005, Feldman spoke out against Michael Jackson and the child molestation charges the pop star was facing. In 2008 Feldman said his relationship with Jackson had “damaged” him, though he was distraught over the news of the King of Pop’s death. He told the press that Jackson “was his idol.”

Feldman has not yet responded to Corey Haim’s death, but surely he is deeply saddened by the news.  —Corynne Steindler

That’s not true that they weren’t on speaking terms. I saw a video off TMZ a while ago where they were hanging out last month together. If you watch the video, they stated that they’ll always be best friends. So sad.

Oops, I meant that the two Coreys WERE on speaking terms.

I saw that too — but they still had a pretty big falling out recently. They may have been on the way to rebuilding but their break was very public.

What a poorly written article.
Michael Jackson didn’t die of a heart attack, he died of an overdose of Anesthesia from and other assorted barbituates.
And at least ATTEMPT spell check: “of the Kind of Pop’s death.” It is KING!!
