The former child actor made shocking claims about abuse he suffered through when he was younger — but in a new interview, his mom said that the allegations he made are ‘mostly’ untrue.
Corey Feldman‘s mom Sheila Kenner spoke out against the abuse allegations that her son made in his new tell-all book, Coreyography. Corey accused his parents and members of the Hollywood acting community of physical abuse when he was a kid — claims that Sheila responded to by saying Corey’s experiences were “not all bad.”
Corey Feldman’s Mother Says Shocking Abuse Claims Are ‘Not True’
Corey’s mom did not react well to learning about what Corey said about her in his book. “I’m stressed, but I’m trying,” she told Radar Online. “It’s very hard to deal with. It really is. I just have to deal with it.”
She was not blindsided by Corey’s claims, but she did not agree with what he alleged. “I had a pretty good idea [what was coming in the book] because Corey and I discussed it,” Kenner revealed.
“At one point, we went out to dinner. He said, ‘Mom, you’re not going to like what I have to say.’ I said, ‘Corey, I’m probably not gonna like it. I’m gonna be pretty hysterical and I’m gonna know that most of it is not true.’”
“‘He said, ‘Just go along with it,'” she claimed. “He told me, ‘I want you to know that you’re just gonna be getting swamped.'”
Corey Feldman’s Shocking Abuse Claims Revealed In New Book
In his new book, Corey “accuses his mother of a myriad of abuses, including force-feeding him diet pills, beating him with a curtain rod, doing drugs and more,” according to Radar Online. Corey got legal emancipation from his parents when he was 15 years old.
“There’s always good with bad,” Sheila offered, by way of explanation. “It’s not all negative. The business has been very, very good to our family.”
