Corey Feldman To 'Name Names' In Hollywood Sex Abuse Ring

In 2013, one the biggest child stars of the 80s released his memoir which alleges the sexual abuse against he and his co-star endured by a string of men in the entertainment industry.

Now, Corey Feldman is on the precipice of naming names.

In the book Coreyography, Feldman came forward about a “Hollywood paedophile ring”, in which he claimed he and Corey Haim were abused by a string of men, but stopped short of exposing them.

According to Feldman, Haim was raped when he was 11.

Now, in the light of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, Feldman is being pressured on social media to name names.

“Right off the bat I can name six names,” Feldman says, 2 minutes into a video he posted to Twitter on Wednesday, “one of them who's still very powerful today.”

He also said he can show a link between paedophilia and one of the major studios.

However, Feldman wants to do this his way. Which is through film.

Feldman has started an Indiegogo campaign for $10 million that will fund his plan to direct, produce and self-distribute the “most honest and true depiction of child abuse ever portrayed.”

“It's not easy,” he said.

“I've been degraded at great levels. Rumours have been told, stories have been made up about me... all because they fear what I know.”

Corey Haim was 38 when he died in 2010.

At the time of publishing, Feldman’s crowdfunding campaign had attracted more than 2480 backers, raising more than $US122,500 so far.
