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 when it came to Feldman’s friendship with Haim.
Actor and 80s teen idol Corey Haim passed away suddenly early March 10 from a reported accidental drug overdose. His neighbor at the Oakwood apartments in Los Angeles, Jim Conessa, witnessed the star’s last living moments and recalled them exclusively to HollywoodLife.com.
“I saw him being wheeled out around 1 a.m. and I thought he looked alive,” Conessa said. “The ambulance was here about 30 minutes. Corey still had an oxygen mask. He appeared to still be alive.”
Actor and 80’s teen idol Corey Haim was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment this morning, Mar. 10, according to the LAPD and TMZ. He was 38.
Canadian-born Haim starred in the films Murphy’s Romance, The Lost Boys, License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. He and his frequent co-star Corey Feldman earned the name “The Two Coreys” and even starred in an A&E ‘reality’ called The Two Coreys from 2007 to 2008. Read more
