Corey Feldman Says He Has To Have 24-Hour Security Due To Upcoming Documentary
It's been a long time since Corey Feldman faced his fears and enemies in films like The Goonies, Gremlins and Stand By Me. Now, the 48-year-old says he is facing a different kind of threat - one to his actual life and claims it means he has to have 24-hour security.
It's all because he's starring in a documentary (My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys in which he exposes a paedophile ring and details the abuse that he and late friend and fellow actor Corey Haim suffered at the hands of Hollywood stars when they were children.
In 2013, he published a memoir called Coreyography, in which he first publicly announced the abuse.
While he didn't name any names, he said his abusers were powerful men in Hollywood, The documentary, however, takes those accusations further and exposes who they were, and Corey feels like he has to take the necessary precautions as a result.
In a recent live video on Twitter, he talked about how various allegations have led to him living in fear of his life.
"There are things you have to do for insurance reasons when you're putting out something like this,' he said in the video.
"This is very, very dangerous stuff and it's very risky stuff. You know we have to have 24-hour armed security, we don't know what's gonna happen."

He then went on to say: "Of course we have fear, there's been two attempts on my life. There obviously could be more, we hope not but we don't know what's going to happen. It's scary, it's very, very scary."
Feldman has, he says, already been on the receiving end of multiple murder attempts, including one incident in 2018, when he claims he was hospitalised after being stabbed in an attack by three men.
In addition to exposing paedophiles, Feldman says he hopes he can help support other victims of abuse through with his #KidsToo movement, and by building halfway houses where young survivors of abuse can find the kind of support that was never available to him as a kid.
"What I really care about the most is having #KidsToo becomes a movement as well known and as utilised as #MeToo," he told Entertainment Weekly.
"So we can help give more victims the courage to let their voices be heard and bring their stories forward.
"What I would like to see happen is law reforms to continue across the country, state by state, until we abolish the statute of limitations. With the help of Child USA, I believe we can get that done."
