In Corey Feldman's new memoir Coreyography, the former child actor discusses the abuse that he and Corey Haim dealt with throughout their lives.
Feldman talks about the sexual abuse that Haim informed him of while back on the set of Lucas in 1986, reports New York Post.
The Lost Boys actor wrote, "an adult male convinced him it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the guys do. So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers ... and Haim allowed himself to be sodomized."
After telling Feldman this information, he asked, "So, I guess we should play around like that, too?" Feldman notes he passed on the offer.
According to The Huffington Post, Feldman also detailed his own history at the hands of older men. A man named "Ron" who his father brought on as an assistant abused Feldman and introduced him to drugs.
Feldman would struggle with drugs until his 1990 arrest for heroin charges. Two more drug arrests would follow until he finally cleaned up his act. Haim never managed to do the same and eventually died in 2010 of pneumonia.
The NY Post also noted Feldman's home-life wasn't great either, according to the memoir. His father only wanted to get high with him and his mother was a former Playboy model who had her own issues. The memoir details how she treated him poorly from a young age.
