Sad: Corey Feldman blogs about loss of “brother” Corey Haim
Corey Feldman, one half of the two Coreys and frequent co-star of Corey Haim, blogged about the death of his friend and “brother” today.
The two 80s teen heartthrobs even co-starred in a reality show in 2007 on A&E, following the child stars as they struggled with their careers twenty years after their fame peaked. The show heavily focused on the contrast between Haim’s struggle with addiction and his more well-adjusted friend Feldman. In the post, Feldman says:
I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful,beautiful,tormented soul, who will always be my brother,family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived. ~ Corey
Haim’s death early this morning in Los Angeles isn’t the first big loss suffered by Feldman in the past year- the child star was notoriously close to pop star Michael Jackson at the height of Feldman’s career. Feldman blogged at length about the death of Jackson here.
