Corey Feldman has a new memoir out called “Coreyography”, and as expected, the memoir has a ton of details to divulge about late friend and actor Corey Haim. Haim, who passed away in 2010, was a troubled soul, but how troubled was he exactly? According to Feldman’s memoir, there’s a few shocking tidbits about Haim that the press wasn’t aware of until now.
Corey Feldman and Corey Haim shot to fame in their early teens in the 80s and early 90s. The two, simply known as “The Coreys” got caught up in the Hollywood scene, as the two filmed several films together, most notably, The Lost Boys, License to Drive, and Dream a Little Dream.
In Feldman’s memoir, he goes into shocking details of fallen friend Corey Haim’s problems. In “Coreyography” Feldman has decided to out Haim as a bisexual, who often hit on Feldman, and made advances to have sex with him. He also details that Haim was overly sexualized and was exposed to sex at a young age. He also said that Haim was sodomized as a child by a man that goes unnamed. Corey backs this up by saying that Haim confided in him about the rape.
After Corey Feldman denied Haim’s advances, Feldman said Corey got on his case and would pester Feldman to look for men or women to have sex with. At the time Feldman suggested Haim sleep with an older man, by the name of Marty Weiss. Weiss was a talent manager who was later arrested in 2011 for committing lewd acts with underage minors.
Corey Feldman recounts Haim’s time with Marty Weiss in his memoir:
“They walked single file into the adjoining room. I heard sounds, banging, thumping. I felt my stomach flip-flop. I felt sick.”
Feldman recalls Corey Haim trying to convince him to have sex. The Lost Boys star pleaded with Feldman, “I’m not gay, man. This is what guys do. It’s totally normal. Why don’t we do it?”
Denying Haim once again, Feldman said that after he turned down sex from Haim, his friend had expressed interest in hooking up with Marty Weiss again. By that time the two were estranged, so Feldman hooked Corey Haim up with a man who he refers to as “Tony Burnham.” Burnham had a huge crush on Haim, and a meeting was arranged even though Feldman tried to convince Haim not to engage in activity with the “overweight and unattractive” man. The encounter happened, and Feldman said that the older man treated Haim like his boyfriend.
These shocking tidbits about Corey Haim’s life in the 80s and 90s makes sense. For most of their time in the limelight the two were in a co-dependent friendship with each other, and were hot on the drug scene. Haim’s abuse of drugs could be explained for the sexual abuse that he endured. During their short-lived reality show The Two Coreys Haim accused Feldman of being responsible for some of the sexual abuse that he suffered.
Following Corey Haim’s death Corey Feldman spoke on Larry King:
“He was his own enemy. I mean, look, a lot of people that are artists tend to be their own worst enemy because we’re passionate people… Most recently he’s been, honestly, in the best frame of mind that he’s ever been in, in the past year.”
At the time of his death, Corey Haim was described as “very destitute” and alone.
