Corey Feldman Hears Beyond-the-Grave Message from Co-Star Corey Haim About Abuse

Hollywood’s famous two Coreys made an emotional TV reunion of sorts — if you believe in people talking from beyond the grave.

Corey Feldman, best known for his roles in classic ’80s movies like “Stand By Me,” “The Goonies” and “Gremlins,” believes he heard a poignant message from his late friend and co-star Corey Haim on the psychic show “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry.”

In their last TV show together, Haim had confronted Feldman over Feldman knowing that Haim had been abused for a period of two years as a teenager.

On Wednesday’s episode of “Hollywood Medium,” Feldman says he finally heard Haim tell him to come out with the information he has regarded Haim’s abuse.

“All it will take is one person coming forward for a whole other group of people to come forward,” Henry told Feldman. “It’s clear that other people would also come forward and support you.”

“Literally, I’ve been praying for several nights in a row for this answer,” Feldman responded to the host. “I feel like that whole thing was orchestrated by some greater power to help me find that answer.”

Haim and Feldman were near-constant movie partners back in the day, co-starring in 12 movies. Haim, who battled drug addiction, died of pneumonia in 2010.

Both actors say they were abused by unnamed sexual predators that preyed on boys and young men in Hollywood.

After the show aired, Feldman took to Twitter to express his relief that he heard from his late friend.

On Twitter, many of Feldman’s fans gave heartfelt responses to the episode, and to Feldman and Haim’s “reconnection.”

Earlier in the show, Henry pegged Feldman as a skeptic about his psychic powers.

But Henry won him over by successfully intuiting that one of Feldman’s relatives had a prominent birthmark on his face. It turned out it was his grandfather’s third brother, whom Feldman hadn’t thought about in years.

“That was a crazy one. Because there’s no way anybody would have known that,” Feldman told the camera.
