Corey Feldman Vows To Release Names Of 6 Powerful Hollywood Pedophiles

Tyler Durden's picture

For years, actor and former child star Corey Feldman has been warning anybody who would listen that Hollywood is a place where adults have more inappropriate contact with children than probably anywhere else in the world.

So it’s unsurprising given the renewed focus on sexual assault and harassment brought about by the Harvey Weinstein scandal that Feldman’s accusations would receive renewed attention, considering he made the media rounds as recently as 2016 to talk about how a pedophile ring in Hollywood abused him and his friend, fellow actor Corey Haim – actions Feldman blames for Haim’s eventual death from a drug overdose.

And yesterday, he returned to the “Today” show and, during an interview with Matt Lauer vowed to release the names of six men who he alleges participated in the abuse of himself, Haim and other young stars. The interview followed Feldman’s announcement in a YouTube video last week that he was launching an Indiegogo page to try and raise money for a feature film about pedophilia in Hollywood that he hopes to direct. However, as Lauer pointed out, Feldman’s target budget - $10 million – appears lofty. But the former child star appears determined to tell his story the way he wants it to be told.

Here's an excerpt from his interview:

LAUER: “Why are you talking to me? Why aren’t you talking to the police right now?”

FELDMAN: “I told the police. In fact if anyone wants to go back to 1993, when I was interviewed by the Santa Barbara Police Department. I sat there and gave them the names. They are on record. They have all of this information, but they were scanning Michael Jackson. All they cared about was trying about to find something on Michael Jackson.”

LAUER: “Who you said, by the way, did not abuse you.”

FELDMAN: “Who Michael was innocent. And that was what the interview was about with the pollice in 1993. I told them, he is not that guy. And they said, maybe you don’t understand your friend. And I said, no, I know the difference between pedophiles and somebody that is not a pedophile because I have been molested. Here’s the names, go investigate. And let me push this forward, there are thousands of people in Hollywood that have the same information. Why is it all on me? Why is it, if I don’t release the names in the next two months, six months or a year, I’m the bad guy. I’m the victim here. I’m the one who has been abused. I’m the one who is trying to come forward and do something about it.”

LAUER: “But —“ [crosstalk]

FELDMAN: “Please, I’m sorry. There are thousands of people out there, Matt, who have this information. Any one of those child actors that went to the teenage soda pop clubs with me when I was a kid, know who those people are and the people who ran it. Anybody can go back through history and look at the Teen magazines and say what was the name of that venue they were promoting and who ran that venue own who endorsed it.”

LAUER: “You said you have death threats because you have this information.”

FELDMAN: “Yes.”

LAUER: “And have threatened to expose it. Another reason I think to go to police. That’s a crime to threaten someone’s life.”

FELDMAN: “I’ve gone to the police with that, as well.”

LAUER: “And what would be wrong about going to the police now again? Didn’t work out in Santa Barbara.”

FELDMAN: “There’s a statute of limitations, Matt, in the state of Claifornia which protects people. It’s not that way in New York. It’s that way only where the movie industry is, conveniently enough in California. That’s the seriousness of this. You cannot. Because if I were to go to the police, I would be he one who’s getting sued. Henceforth, I need a team of lawyers and I need a team of security to be around me at all times, to keep me safe so I can get this message done.”

LAUER: “Really, really quickly.”

FELDMAN: “I’m not playing around. It’s serious stuff. I vow I will release every name that I have any knowledge of, period. And nobody’s going to stop me this time, as long as people support this.”

* * *

Of course, legal problems stemming from sexual-harassment or -assault allegations are a major problem for Hollywood’s victims, as the Weinstein scandal helped to expose. Yet Feldman, who starred in 1980s classics like “Stand By Me” and “The Goonies”, is wrong about the California statute of limitations on sexual abuse cases – it was thrown out late last year by Gov. Jerry Brown. Still, it’s not altogether unreasonable – particularly for somebody who is not accustomed to having his allegations taken seriously – for Feldman to be afraid of legal repercussions of outing powerful pedophiles.

But after simmering on the backburner for years, the levee of public outrage over pedophilia in Hollywood could very well be about to break. Case in point: Over the weekend, actor Anthony Rapp – famous for his roles in “Rent” and “Dazed and Confused” – accused actor Kevin Spacey of molesting him when he was 14. In an unprecedented development, Netflix cancelled Spacey’s show House of Cards, and the actor has suffered tremendous reputational damage that could threaten his ability to find work.

In the shuffle of the Weinstein allegations, some have pointed out that Bryan Singer, who directed the X-Men movies and other mega-budget blockbusters, has been repeatedly accused of pedophilia, has been able to easily find work despite the stigma. Two lawsuits alleging abuse by Singer were eventually dismissed, but actors have continued to single him out.

Regardless of whether Feldman ever comes forward, it appears Hollywood is finally being forced to acknowledge that both men and women are subjected to sexual abuse and coercion, though perhaps not in the same numbers.

One of my dreams is to see (Hollywood) (or shall we call it by its real name = Jewllywood ?), to see it burned to the ground. I really,really hope to live to see this.

redmudhooch's picture

Thats anti-semitic!

You racist!

Thought Processor's picture

 

Just make sure there are victims or witnesses that are living in each case (other wise you can open yourself to libel).

 

This is the primary reason others do not come forward.  If there are no witnesses or evidence then it is a long legal game of 'he said, she said'.

 

But yeah, dump the info.

If his life is threatened by the perps, which is not an unreasonable assumption, can he really count on the police to protect him? Just because he may be paranoid, doesn't mean they are not out to get him. These pedos sociopaths are wealthy enough to hire armies of "silencers". It's surprising that Feldman is still talking, let alone walking among the living.

BabaLooey's picture

Feldman's too famous Paul.....

IN the news now.

If he's smart, he's laying low. 

Paul Kersey's picture

Can an intelligent American count on the police to protect himself and his family against the powerful untouchable elite, or does he have to seek other means of protection?

BandGap's picture

Tell you what, I have never been nor will ever be in Feldman's shoes.

From what I read he has been to the police and has been talking about this for 10+ years. I think he has had the door shut in his face but that climate is changing. I want to know what he knows. Hopefully the pigs he names get what they have coming. Bring the evil into the light. This is big evil, and dangerous.

I'd give him a pass.

He gave the police the names in 1993.  They did nothing.

Can you imagine how many kids have been abused in the last 24 years?

I couldn't be anymore disgusted at the police who with dawning horror I"m starting to realize are in place to protect the predators against the victims and anyone that empathizes w them.

HRClinton's picture

Not to "blame the victim", but is he going on DWTS next?

I hear that it's a great place to revive a struggling entertainment career. BTW, jocks are entertainers. 

But I agree that he should just spill the beans. Before someone spills his brains.

The movie will be a big commercial flop because its contents will be old news 2 years from now when it comes out. Name the names and sue them; despite the statute of limitations you might make them pay much more than $10,000,000; let others name names and sue. Much more money might be raised; but do it all now!!!

2rigged2fail's picture

Waiting to see if he can get the fiat first then disappear never to be heard from again

IvannaHumpalot's picture

He has to hire security and lawyers to do it you idiot. You think it's just as easy as naming them? He'd at the very least be sued, leaving his family without money. His career was ended when he went to the cops and told them everything (unlike the others). So you're the dumb cunt who can't read and thinks everything is as easy as ordering fries at McDonalds.

 

Why don't you try spotting him a fiver to help him hire lawyers/security so he can come out with it, instead?

Note to Corey: Copper-Jacketed-Lead knows no statute-of-limitations (and is also recognized as the best medical treatment for pedophiles).

drendebe10's picture

Yada yada yada. Bring it on already

hannah's picture

corey is right about one thing.....he can be sued like crazy if he names names because the statue of limitations has run out and the police wont investigate...basicly there was no crime. he is dealing with people that have 100's of million of dollars. the big problem is he didnt push this in the media back in the 1980's when he had a chance. it would have toasted any career he would have had.........

"Do it already or stfu.  Fucking idiot."

 

Classy comment....

lasvegaspersona's picture

Dave Chapelle does a bit about a white friend who simply tells the cop: "I didn't know I couldn't do that" and gets away with his infraction. Maybe these guys should try the same trick. Just because you are fat and ugly doesn't mean you aren't allowed to try....

Tarzan's picture

He did "Do it already" more then once, and the law did nothing, so now he wants to make a film and take it to the people.  Kinda wonky, but I applaud the guy.

He's doing something about it, at a huge personal risk!

LawsofPhysics's picture

This tool personifies everything that is wrong with 'merica. Stop talking about doing something and actually fucking do it you useless fuck!

He could raise alot more money a lot faster if he just named the six names. He'll never have a better time to do it. Right now there's a ton of bandwagonners who join the first person to announce they've been sexually abused. If he was abused by these "6", I guarantee you they didn't stop abusing boys with him, they've abused others so I'd wager if he came out and said the names we'd get an avalanche of me toos from other Hollywood has beens or never-weres. For the sake of other potential boys who could get landuskyizied, I hope he releases the names.

I agree, outing them gives others the confidence ot come forward, as they are no longer standing alone.  

Patriot Eke's picture

This is another issue that needs addressing.  A lot of people are cowards and they think of themselves first.  Rape victims of all types commonly think, "Oh, I'm going to keep my mouth shut for X reason."  No matter what that reason is, it is horribly selfish and cowardly.  Their silence assures further victims.  It's maddening to me that so many people keep their mouths shut.  No, speak out, and put an end to the predators.  By being quiet, the predators are allowed to continue victimizing more people!

Ghost of PartysOver's picture

What, and open yourself up to all kinds of legal troubles both civil and criminal?  Therein lies the problem.  He is all but begging for some law enforcement agency to open a case and then force him to testify thereby avoiding all the personal legal issues.  But so far nothing but crickets and golf claps from law enforcement.

Juggernaut x2's picture

Gee, you don't think LAPD and the LA County Sheriff are going to bite the hand that feeds, do you?

FoggyWorld's picture

Then tell Matt Lauer.  The rest will take care of itself.  See Harvey Weinstein and how one voice led to another and another.

ejmoosa's picture

I saw that the Mist was playing on Netflix.  As soon as I saw Weinstein's name, I turned it off.

This is now tainted merchandise.

robertocarlos's picture

Even better. I will never pay for Netflix.

WillyGroper's picture

see how lauer played with words?

sex scandal...same with all the elites.

the NEVER use the word pedophile as if this somehow plays down this sort of deviant behavior.

simply another form of conditioning leading to legalization of the abhorrant.

LawOfBass's picture

Maybe they think it's 'just sex.'.  Sort of like Spacey's 'hey, i was drunk, i'm a guy, i tried to bang another guy...' excuse for his attemtped crime against a minor (another guy)

WillyGroper's picture

exact same verbiage when the royals get caught with their pants down...the word scandal is always used.

Buck Johnson's picture

Exactly, 100 percent on point. 

 

ssgredux's picture

True, but, I'd also argue that by releasing the list of names, he protects himself innately.  Those named will be covered in shit, the media flies will be buzzing and he'll be forgotten as anything other than the guy who blew the lid off, which would earn him some big kudos, especially when 100+ people come forward to tell their stories...

Buck Johnson's picture

Totally agree, the media will be buzzing around those names and eventually they will find those people and witnesses who will out those individuals.  When tens if not hundreds of people come out and say this and that in regard to sexual abuse of a minor it makes it hard to climb out of that crap pile.

 

USofAzzDownWeGo's picture

As a 16 year old kid that's rich and famous in Hollywood, yea... go tell the world that some old man put his dick in my ass and fucked me all night long multiple times. And I sucked some old man's dick at gunpoint. yea, im so fucking sure some teenager wants to tell the world that so everyone in the world can know this embarrassing and humiliationg secret. 

PitBullsRule's picture

Hey asshole,

He's on national TV trying to raise money to make a movie, he's admitting to something very painful and embarassing on TV.

And what have you done asshole?

Strike a nerve asshat? If it was really that "painful" I couldn't wait to expose the evil fuckers, and I grew up Catholic, so I know about some real evil you stupid fuck. LMFAO!!!

If you were abused for years you might tread lightly at this point. I await the names, but I am not going to judge.

He has a son, BTW.

Patriot Eke's picture

This is of course one of the difficulties of revealing the truth. We all have something valuable to lose. The question we must ask ourselves though is if liberty is worth any price or not. Is it worth the lives of my loved ones? I know my answer, but I cannot make the decision for others. Is the truth worth any price? Usually, it is not.

Speaking of useless fucks... for you, spotting one is only a mirror away.

Hey Corey, either release the names or STFU.

buzzsaw99's picture

if true he is taking a terrible chance with his own life by threatening to release names and then waiting without actually doing it.
