Why Corey Feldman Won't Name the Men He Claims Abused Him and Corey Haim

Updated

Corey Feldman has seen his fair share of tragedies in his personal life and has risen above, but there’s one nightmare that continues to follow him.

In his 2013 memoir, Coreyography, the former Lost Boys star disclosed that he and his best friend at the time, fellow child actor Corey Haim, had been sexually abused by people in the industry. An admittance that the 45-year-old has been battling with ever since.

“It has been very difficult for me to stay quiet, but as much as I would love for all of those sickos to be brought to justice, I’ve tried to be respectful of Judy’s wishes,” Feldman tells PEOPLE in this week’s magazine.

The star refuses to name names so as not to cause more pain for Haim’s mother, Judy, who lost her son after he struggled for decades of a drug addiction and died of pneumonia in 2010 at just 38.

“I pray everyday before I go to bed and I ask God to give me the strength to deal with all of this,” admits the actor-turned-musician. “Those names will come out eventually.”

Feldman adds, “The truth always does.”
