Corey Feldman Vows To Release Names Of 6 Powerful Hollywood Pedophiles

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.

Thanks for your comments.  I was a cute kid and a 'has-been' by 15 years of age.I have 1/100 the hair, 40ish years later.The funniest thing about the finding this on the web (it was another page - not the link above) had an area for comments.The first comment was 'That kid looks like the devil.'I cracked up and responded - 'That's me - and back then, I was the devil.'There were a lot of twisted people at all levels in NYC, but the mothers were the worst.  I got 1/2 the work just because I was quiet and could read.  Other kids didn't get jobs because they and their mother were incredible pains in the ass.  They are the pushiest fucks on the planet.I am so happy to not be involved in the business.  Beyond the creepy, it's all 'hurry-up and wait.'

I'm thankful for a person like you who used to work with me.  He did commercials and some minor roles in his past, and I mentioned that I was considering getting one of children involved.  He sternly scolded me and said to stay the hell away from the people involved in the business.  Basically, if you love your children, you want nothing to do with Hollywood.

You are lucky you got that advice.  My kids still hate me for not letting them get involved and I couldn't care less.  The played sports year-round and my wife and I could keep an eye on them.I had a close friend fall for a scam where someone walked up to her in a mall and said her daughter was beautiful and they would love to be their 'agent' in modeling.  I said - "Watch out - that's a guaranteed scam."$800 later, she had head shots made, then never heard from the person or their company ever again.It's a well-known scam.  Who doesn't believe their own child is the best looking kid in the world?It's amazing the success rate of scams that play on parent's love for their children and/or their desire to live their childhood over, vicariously, through their own children.

I believe Feldman. He's afraid. He was a victim and knows the power this pedo ring has over him and his family. The charges he can make are far more serious than an adult female saying a man grabbed her ass without her permission. There's a reason no one other than the Spacey accuser is talking but I expect this scandal will spill soon.

He's playing it smart, per his lawyer:1. Avoid civil lawsuits from his abusers, which would bankrupt him long before he saw justice being done.2. Use the publicity to shame/pressure the cops and DA to investigate and press charges. He can then be a Witness, w/o fear of a Civil Lawsuit. 3. He can NOT accept a payoff, or he's fucked in more ways than one.4. While doing #1, #2 and #3, he can let the "buzz" generate money from TV appearances and crowd-source money for his next movie.All shrewd legal, PR and financial moves. Got it?

I'm going to stick up for the courageous Corey Feldman here.  I'm appalled at all you assholes for slamming him.  Think about what guts this takes.  You slam him for not naming names.  He has named names.  He took it to the police (FBI?) and they did nothing with it.  No doubt because there was no way they were going to disrupt the almighty Pedowood.  Think about all the torment he's been under when his claim fell on deaf ears and then he was ridiculed and his career ruined, just because he spoke out and people just laughed at him.  Probably including you people.You accuse him of just taking the opportunity to "capitalize" on it.  Bullshit.  He's taking the opportunity because the time is right.  With the truth coming out, now he has a chance that people will listen to his story.  I'm pretty sure that if there was no such thing as pedophilia in Pedowood his friend Corey Haim would still be here too.  We'll probably find out.Please, just get off his case and let this story unfold.  I'll probably get a whole whack of thumbs downs for this comment but you know what... I don't give a shit.Assholes.

I totally believe you. Some years ago, I went to the FBI on a different matter, and they tried to talk me down from pressing charges. Unless a case helps put notches on their belt, they're not interested. That's how you play the Career Game in all Gov agencies.I also know from personal experience in the late 90s, that the Fed will track you in real time with assets, if you trigger some wires. Which I did, by simply being interviewed for a job in Europe. The mere association as a New Player to a Value Political Target, was all it took. The See Eye Eh must've been tracking the Swiss guy, and probably had local US assets or the Fed help them out in active tracking me for several days, until they realized that I was harmless. But the truly bizarre set of events led me to realize a few years later (Sep. 2001), that there is NO way that a Bad Player can avoid their close scrutiny and apprehension, if they want to. The key word is "want to".Justice for all?  Yeah, sure. LOL.For all who qualify.

they were nice and professional not like dmv. the corruption is like a cancer once it spreads there is no cure. everybody has a boss and no one will step forward or put any of assets at risk. it is liberating in a way, to understand and feel the  real depths of corruptions and the depth of the deep state. changed me a whole lot more than first time pussy dipping

Corey Feldman on  The Today Show is a very good move.   He needs to be in the public eye as much as possible.They won't dare touch him.   He already was nearly mowed down by two big trucks  at an intersection  when he was crossing the street   (in the last couple of weeks)  and so  the bad guys have his number.  Think of all those jerks in Hollywood who have hundreds of millions of dollars.Maybe Brad Pitt  ought to just  open his wallet  and help him produce it.  Brad Pitt,  dad of 6 kids,  who has spoken out about pedophilia already.  Seems like a great project for Brad.

Kid is in the same predicament as all the illegals are.  The Hollywood elite probably keep telling him they are going to get him a big role in some movie soon just like the Dems keep promising the illegals that they are going to help them.  Dems had the majority a few years back and did they help the illegals.  Hollywood has been making movies for decades since this Corey guy was abused and no one gave him a big role.

What he needs to do is go to the local Federal Prosecutor with REAL evidence, make a ststement & let the fireworks begin.  Spouting off on some "social media platform" is NOT evidence and will taint the case so that any half-assed lawyer will get his client off in 20 minutes. Use the system & make it work.  Once the evidence & statements are made public, there is no way any Prosecutor can back away from it.
