Corey Ian Haim (December 23, 1971 - March 10, 2010) was a Canadian actor, known for a 1980s Hollywood career as a teen idol. He starred or co-starred in a number of films such as Lucas, Murphy's Romance, The Lost Boys, License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. Most notably, he collaborated numerous times with Corey Feldman.
After the tragic loss, Corey Haim’s close friend wasn’t surprised by his death and admits that Corey begged him for drugs shortly before his passing on March 10th.
A friend of the Lost Boys star said, “Corey was in a bad way and he was begging me to give him pain medication shortly before his death. But although I’ve read stories about a gang giving him prescription drugs he never spoke about that.I know he was taking a lot of Valium, he was very upset about his mom’s cancer as he was really close to her, and I guess it was his way of dealing with the stress.”
After the shocking news of Corey Haim's death early Wednesday morning (March 10), best friend Corey Feldman has spoken out.
In a statement, Feldman told, "I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face.”
Hollywood is still in shock over the tragic death of 80’s teen idol Corey Haim, and a new coroner’s report tells that the “Lost Boys” actor spent his last living moments with his mother.
LA County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter explained, "Some time after midnight, he got up, he was dizzy and unsteady on his feet and knelt down. His mom helped him to a bed and he became unresponsive in about a minute or so. She dialed 911 and he was pronounced dead at a local hospital at 2:15 a.m."
