Corey Feldman, who appeared on Larry King Live Wednesday night, said Haim was “very destitute, very broke,” had no car and few friends when he died. Happy about the outpouring of love for his friend, he was also disturbed by the fact that these people weren’t available to him while he was alive.
“At the end of the day, Larry, where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years of Corey’s life?” asked Feldman, also 38. “Where were all these people to lend a hand out, to reach out to him and say, you know, you’re a legend, you’re – you’re an amazingly talented, wonderful person who’s really never gone out of his way to hurt anybody other than himself?”
Feldman said “a sizeable memorial” will be planned for Haim – which he hopes will be well-attended. “You see these people making great statements and that’s wonderful and I hope they’re all there for the memorial and I hope they’re all there for the funeral. But where were they during his life?”
At least the City of Toronto has stepped forward to help cover his funeral costs. His mom, Judy Haim, set up a Corey Haim Memorial fund to help cover costs. It’s reported Access Hollywood will be covering the funeral. Fans can leave their condolences on his MySpace page. Rest in peace, Corey, may you find happiness in the after life.
