Corey Feldman sounds like he might be ready to talk about who he has been accusing of sexual abuse all of these years. Us Weekly shared that not everyone agrees with what he has to say, however. Judy Haim, the mom of the late Corey Haim, is speaking out and saying that Feldman is a “scam artist.”
Corey is going to be on Today on Monday and Judy Haim is speaking out about his appearance. She talked to the Hollywood Reporter and she is not a fan of what Corey Feldman is doing right now. Corey recently announced a $10 million fundraising campaign to do a documentary that is meant to expose Hollywood pedophilia. He has already raised about $140,000, but that isn’t anywhere near what he is saying he needs for this project.
It has been well-known for years that Corey Haim says he is a sex abuse victim, but he never wanted to name the people who did this to him for some reason. Those stories didn’t die with him, though, because his friend Corey Feldman is now looking to reveal more information. Sex abuse in Hollywood is really coming to light after the accusations against Harvey Weinstein lately.
Judy Haim says that Corey Feldman has been saying he would reveal who did this for seven years, ever since her son Corey Haim passed away, but it hasn’t happened. Judy actually thinks her son was only sexually abused once and that it was by one man. Now she is speaking out against Feldman, saying, “Now he wants $10 million to do it? Come on. It’s a long con. He’s a scam artist. If he was serious about this, he’d share the information he has with the police.”
Judy feels like there is just a series of isolated events that happened in Hollywood and there isn’t a huge pedophile ring that needs to be uncovered like Feldman is making it sound. She also feels like a lot of it is linked to on-set relationships. Judy went on to explain her thoughts.
“It’s disrespectful to sexual assault survivors and their loved ones in and out of the industry to get their hopes up about uncovering a massive conspiracy, because he will not name names — ever. And if these people really are out there, and potentially [still] a danger, why wouldn’t he want to name them right now?”
Feldman did respond on Twitter, saying that Judy Haim is a “bad woman who vehemently protects evil.” He also said the floodgates have been opened and nothing can stop it now.
