Corey Feldman is best known as the adorable childhood star from ‘The Lost Boys’ and ‘The Goonies,’ but in a new book he reveals that what appeared to be a carefree life, was actually a scary and abusive childhood. He even says that his safest moments were those with his close friend, Michael Jackson.

Corey Feldman‘s new memoir, Coreyography, exposes the horrors of his tortured childhood in Hollywood. Now 42, the famed actor writes that he met The Lost Boys costar, then 14-year-old, Corey Haim and they both realized they had a deeply damaging history with abusive older men.

Corey Feldman Reveals Abusive Childhood

In his new book, he says that both Coreys had become convinced that it was normal for older men and younger boys to have sexual relations and that it was “what all the guys do,” according to excerpts printed in the New York Post on Oct. 19.

The two Coreys grew up together, unfortunately both getting involved with drugs and experiencing other episodes of being molested. They depended on one another but it became unhealthy. However, Corey still looked for an older person to trust.

With a lack of trustworthy models, he turned to his Gremlins crew — the film’s executive producer, Steven Spielberg and director, Richard Donner. However, he became closest with a man who he called, “Ron,” an assistant that his father hired.

“It was almost eerie how similar we were,” he writes of Ron. “It was as if he had studied me and was copying my every move.”

At one point, Ron got Corey high on pills, and then had oral sex with a “petrified” and “revolted” Corey — this went on for years. “Slowly, over a period of many years. I would begin to realize that many of the people I had surrounded myself with were monsters,” he writes.

Corey’s ‘Normal’ Relationship With Michael Jackson

After his experiences with Ron, as well as with numerous other older men, he began searching for a safe place.

“I was shattered, disgusted, devastated. I needed some normalcy in my life,” Corey writes in his book. This led him to call Michael Jackson. “Michael Jackson’s world, crazy as it sounds, had become my happy place. Being with Michael brought me back to my innocence. When I was with Michael, it was like being ten years old again.”

He added that Michael never inappropriately touched him — it was the healthiest relationship he says that he knew. However in 2001, Michael heard that Corey was planning to trash him in his book, something that Corey obviously denied. Sadly, the two never spoke again.

Corey’s Twisted Home Life

Corey never had a positive influence at home — his mother, Sheila was a former model for Playboy and suffered from severe depression, as well as used heavy drugs. His father, Bob, did drugs with Corey, which was the extent of their relationships.

He took on his first role in a commercial at the age of three, and his mother did everything she could to make him successful.

Corey revealed that his mother called him fat and tortured him at the young age of four, eventually force-feeding him diet pills. At five, he was caught eating two cookies and she screamed at him, saying, “You have no right to disrespect me like this, you ungrateful sh-t. Do you realize that most women would die to look like this after two kids? Look at these t-ts!”

At seven, his mother thought of him as the bread winner, and would not let him even play outside saying that he had too many responsibilities. When he was fired for a role, his mother would threaten his life, and call him a “worthless piece of sh-t.”

“People always ask me about life after childhood stardom,” he writes in the book. “What would I say to parents of children in the industry? My only advice, honestly, is to get these kids out of Hollywood and let them lead normal lives.”

Are you shocked to hear about Corey’s childhood? Will you read his book? Let us know!

Both Coreys’ had to have been abused – so, yeah, totally believable knowing what both Corey’s have had to endure throughout their horrific lives; long known that pedophilia is alive & doing very well in HollyWOD. And such parents s/b shot! Only reason this behavior continues is because these parents feed their children to these vile, disgusting creatures!
Hope parents of wanna-be-children actors take note – buy the book and get their kids as far away from this extremely vile environment.

Thank you Corey for your guts, courage and book. Surely Corey 1 is smiling for a change – clearing up why you 2 guys did the drugs and all; and giving you a high 5 on this book.

I totally belive this is all true. So many of the people in the movie industry are homosexuals.

No, those abusers in Hollywood (and elsewhere) are pedophiles, they are not homosexuals. Normal homosexuals have normal relationships with adults of the same sex. Normal heterosexuals have normal relationships with adults of the opposite sex. Pedophiles have sick relationships with children (whether same sex or opposite). Don’t act like “heterosexual” is okay when the pervert is a male abusing a female child. It’s a pedophile….plain and simple.

What is a “normal” homosexual? There is nothing normal about it. If everyone was homosexual, man would cease to exist. Homosexuals don’t reproduce. From an evolutionary perspective, it makes no sense. And we all know what the Bible says about, though I doubt most would care these days. In our politically-correct, modern world, it is, unfortunately, considered normal. But anyway, homosexuality and pedophilia are closely linked. In fact, most lesbians and gays were victims of pedophilia when they were children. Not all victims of child molesters become homosexual, however.

Feldman longs for normalcy and therefore names his kid Zen instead of Gary or Steve, marrys a supermodel, and dresses up like Michael Jackson. Instead of writing a book to get attention; go see a therapist, move to Kansas and get out of entertainment. Get a job at Target and embrace normalcy.

Didn’t Haim say that Feldman knew that the guy he (Feldman) introduced Haim to knew he’d rape Haim? Haim was crying and wanted Feldman to admit he “set him up” yet Feldman said Haim was a liar. It was on that reality show Feldman had. What a p rick. Hope Haim’s mother comes forward.
