I believe he was abused as well.
Good for him-- it's not as though writing a biography is new to Hollywood types, and yes, they want to be paid for their work! LOL Sounds to me like the fact that he was molested actually shaped his career, I think it's more than valid fodder for his industry tell all. And, if it empowers even one victim to speak out or feel less shame, then it's a resounding success, imo-- something I can't say of many Hollywood books.
Surrounded by paedophiles: Deranged lifestyles of child stars
In his new book Coreyography, Feldman — one of Hollywood's top child actors in the 1980s with hits like Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, Gremlins and The Goonies — shares tales of his own abuse at the hands of trusted adults throughout his Hollywood experience.
Might download this one .. interesting, and so glad he is speaking out.
Omg, that was a terrifying and sad read. My heart goes out to both Coreys - what an awful way to have to grow up. Truly lost boys, both of them.
Same .. so darned sad .. I remember watching the show they made and they hinted around the pedophilia a lot in it. Haim was more damaged than Feldman, god it just makes you so mad. How can this be possible .. but there you go. Book only available on pre order .. looking forward to getting it.

You've got to ask - where the HELL were the parents?????
Which brings me back to the inescapable and very ugly conclusion that the parents turned a blind eye for their own ambition.
Those children MJ got, these boys, countless others.
There is no way my boy would be spending the night alone with a middle aged man and I'm sure I'm not alone in this.
As well as charges against the rockspiders (lock em up and throw away the key, literally), I'd like to see charges against the parents too, for essentially prostituting their children.
I don't believe he is revealing the names in this book.
He will get sued.
More importantly the publishing company does not want to get sued...
Yeah .. the thread was started before the book was written I think .. it does seem like naming names may be off the table ..
"Feldman says he had such an encounter at Jackson's home when he says they stopped there on the way to Disneyland. "We went to his apartment, and I noticed a book that he had out on his coffee table. The book contained pictures of grown men and women naked. And the book was focused on venereal diseases and the genitalia." Feldman said the singer sat down with him and explained the photos to him."
And you believe that??? I sure don't!
The good news is that Michael can't go after him now for revealing the truth- maybe that's why he waited...
I couldn't agree more. It sickens me how celebrity allows behaviors that "regular" people would never get by with. And not just getting away with it, but being honored and revered for his amazingness.
I have to bite my tongue whenever my Lil Knot sings a MJ tune. I want to scream "noooooo! He was an awful, evil man!"
But I can't poison her innocent mind like that. It will happen soon enough when the next celebrity ruins children's lives and it makes headlines. And it WILL happen. And people will discuss their "genius". uke:
