Corey Feldman has taken his first steps towards launching sexual assault claims against the men in Hollywood who the former child star claims molested or abused him. The Goonies actor appeared on The Dr Oz Show, where he touched on the horrific things he endured when he shot to stardom as a kid in the 1980s.
The 46-year-old says he was the victim of a paedophile ring as he was growing up, but has refused to name any of his abusers, until now. He alleged to TV host Dr Mehmet Oz, that actor John Grissom molested him when he was a child and urged him to turn himself into police.

Feldman told Dr Oz about how the man is still affecting him to this day, saying: "This guy on his MySpace page and his Facebook page has got pictures of me and Corey Haim. He still taunts it and flaunts it.
"I'm going to give you [the LAPD] the names of everybody...everybody I've got knowledge of, and I would like you to start putting the pressure on all of them."
Grissom appeared in two movies, License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream, both of which starred Feldman. Earlier this week, the Stand By Me actor said he had a list of five other alleged abusers, whom he says he will name in due course.

Feldman then issued this ominous and blunt warning: "Now is your time. Be a man for the first time and come forward yourself.
"Let it be known and you will be dealt with in a much more tolerant way, I'm sure.
"However, if you do not, we are coming for you."

He's started a fundraising campaign to get $10 million (£7.65 million) to make a documentary about the abuse he suffered during his rise to stardom and the alleged widespread practice of paedophilia in the film industry.
The page reads: "This can truly be a way to regain control over who has access to children in the industry, while weeding out the criminals who have already caused the damage. This is a call for the world to unite for a most important cause, to preserve the innocence of children."
Feldman has raised two percent of his goal so far, but he's received death threats and his band-mates have quit over concerns for their safety. His fundraising page even says: "Corey has already written down the names and details of the events and given them to a trusted person of power, in case anything should happen to him or any member of his family before the film is finished."
He says he's been motivated to speak out about the things he suffered following the dozens of sexual assault, rape and misconduct allegations levelled against Harvey Weinstein.
