Corey Feldman Names One Of His Alleged Attackers
Corey Feldman has been very vocal about the abuse he suffered during the early years of his career. Feldman has implored that he and his best friend, the late actor Corey Haim, were both victims of an 'underground pedophilia ring' in Hollywood. The Goonies actor created the Truth Campaign, a documentary Feldman is looking to produce that will shed light on the allegations he's spoken of. In a recent interview with Dr. Oz, Feldman has released the name of one of his attackers.
The former child actor posted a video online last month, stating that he was not afraid to give the names of the men who abused him.
"I told everybody a few days ago, that I had a plan to hopefully bring to light what is happening in the world of entertainment as far as perverts and pedophiles and all the topics we've been discussing," the actor shared in the video.
Feldman has alleged that the abuse he suffered is what caused his [and Haim's] life to spiral out of control as they never fully recovered from it.
On Thursday, Feldman named actor Jon Grissom as one of the men who abused him.
In his autobiography, Coreyography, Feldman wrote about a man, who he named 'Ron Crimson' for legal purposes, who was hired by his father to work in his acting workshops and management company. Feldman revealed to Oz that Grissom was indeed the man he spoke of.
Grissom appeared in Dream a Little Dream and License to Drive, with Feldman and Haim.
In a clip released from the Dr. Oz show, Feldman and OZ are seen speaking over the phone with the police about Grissom. The LAPD stated to E! News that they are looking into the claims; however, because of the statute of limitations, they can only do but so much.
"It seems to me like they are going to take it seriously. They are going to do an interview with me when I get back to Los Angeles. However, they did give me the warning that based on the statute of limitations, they can only open an investigation, but they cannot promise that it will be prosecuted."
Grissom has yet to respond to any of the allegations against him, but it has been reported that he is believed to be a fugitive, living in LA as he was charged with sexual molestation of a child in 2003 and never registered as a sex offender.
Haim's mother, Judy, plans to sue Feldman if he continues to speak on the alleged abuse her son endured. Feldman has stated in the past that he only wishes to 'honor' the memory of his friend but will not sugar coat the truth any longer.
