Corey Feldman has long maintained that he and his friend and childhood co-star Corey Haim were abused as children during their work in Hollywood. He’s been mocked and not taken seriously since.
Finally… on an appearance with Dr. Oz, he named a name.
Corey Feldman alleges that actor John Grissom, who co-starred with Feldman on some films in the 1980s, was part of the “Child sex ring” he’s been talking about for years and did, in fact, molest him.
John Grissom was actually arrested back in 2001 on child molestation charges. He was eventually found guilty and did serve time in prison.
Feldman told Oz that he wanted to name Grissom in his 2013 memoir, but that his legal representation at the time forced him to use a pseudonym, “Ron Crimson.”
“We had to change the names legally,” Feldman said. “The lawyers made me change the names. … They gave me a list of three or four, you know, names. I picked the one that sounded closest to his name.”
Grissom wasn’t the only person Feldman named. The actor reportedly told Dr. Mehmet Oz about other men who allegedly abused him, but he made those accusations off-screen, according to the celebrity doctor.
Feldman created a fundraiser where he asked for $10 million in donations to make a documentary that exposes the corruption in the entertainment industry. More than $185,000 from nearly 4,000 backers has been raised.
“What I am proposing is a plan that I believe can literally change the entertainment system as we know it, and I believe that I can also bring down, potentially, a pedophile ring, that I have been aware of since I was a child,” he said in the “Truth Campaign” video on October 25. “Right off the bat, I can name six names, one of them who is still very powerful today. A story that links all the way up to a studio and connects pedophilia to one of the major studios.”
It had been long rumored that actor Corey Haim, who appeared in in the 1988 movie License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream in 1989 alongside Feldman, was involved in the “pedophile ring” Feldman talked about.
