RIP Corey Haim

LAPD sources confirm that Corey Haim was found dead in an apartment complex early this morning from an apparent drug overdose.  Haim was 38 years old and had gained the majority of his fame through 80s cult movies such as The Lost Boys and License to Drive.

After his major motion picture career apparently fizzled out, Haim collaborated with the “other” Corey, Corey Feldman, on their short-lived reality show The Two Coreys, which aired on A&E in 2007 and 2008.  Both boys at that point had admitted to being victims of sexual abuse at a young age.  The two decided not to resign for a third season because Feldman refused to work with Haim until he “cleaned up” his “addictions.”

Haim never made any secret about his previous drug and alcohol addictions; he claimed that he had been in and out of rehab fifteen times or more.

Corey was found this morning at approximately 3:30 AM and authorities are claiming Haim to be victim of an accidental overdose.

RIP, Corey, and may you finally have some peace from your demons.

  • sass, alzaetia and those yet to come: don’t make fun of the dead. you people are sick.

    RIP Corey.

  • Like most American teenage girls in the late 80s I LOVED Corey Haim. So sad to see what his life turned into. Way too young to die.

  • Wow. I thought that was “Chaz” Bono.

    Whaa whaa whaa. another one bites the dust.

    Oh well, give it another 30 days…there’ll be another overdose! I’m hoping it’s Lindsay.

  • Oh no…this means that we are going to be subjected to lots of the “other” Corey now…what a PR boon for him. ugh.

  • Oh, Boo Hoo Hoo.

    Another spoiled child star who can’t deal with life and turns to drugs. He was handed a tremendous opportunity in the 80s and decided to throw it away by using drugs.

    I don’t feel the least bit sorry for him. He made continual poor choices and it ended his life. I didn’t wish this happened, but I refuse to feel badly about it.

  • I’m shocked that there aren’t a ton of people complaining about these posts after how the last celebrity death post went. >_>

    • His attempt to sell his teeth on e-bay for drug money is just too fresh in my mind for a ton of sympathy.
      Although I do feel bad for his mom.

  • I was another avid Haim watcher in the 80’s. Loved him in Dream a Little Dream and Lost Boys. Such a shame.

    Now I am just waiting for Corey Feldman to have a press conference and to make money off Haim’s death like he did off of MJ’s. Feldman is a waste and the wrong Corey died.
