Child celebrity, Corey Feldman was interviewed by Nightline on ABC. What he says is
I was surrounded by them when I was 14 years old.
Surrounded. Literally. Didn’t even know it. It wasn’t until I was old
enough to realize what they were and what they wanted, and what they were
about. … Oh my God, they were everywhere, like vultures… There was a
circle of older men that surrounded themselves around this group of kids,
and they all had either their own power or connections to great power in
the entertainment industry.
If Corey Haim starred alongside Feldman on many films, the kind of films
that were the staple of my childhood. Other child stars, like Edward
Furlong of Terminator, and Maculey Culkin of Home Alone were notorious of
their reckless lives. Jonathan Brandis and Brad Renfro committed suicide,
both child actors my age that I grew up with. You look at all the Disney
princess girls like Brittany Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Lindsay Lohan,
and all the problems that they have had. Look at the Olsen Twins, and Full
House co-star Jodie Sweetin.
You cannot verify that sexual abuse happened to these stars as children,
but their behavior matches that of childhood victims of sexual abuse. It
may be the forbidden question that the entertainment industry will silence,
but I think it is about time it is asked. Thank you Corey Feldman for
