Oh cool, someone posted it - I can't post yet.
I actually spent a couple days digging, here is what I have.
On the filming of Lucas, Haim was raped by someone. He fell into drugs as a way of coping with the trauma. Corey Feldman was very good friends with
Haim, and after Haims death, around 2012, Feldman promised to release a tell-all book, which included the names of his and Haims abusers. For
whatever reason, he redacted the names before releasing the book. FastForward slightly, almost immediately after not releasing the names...He get's
a part in a movie. Now he has been in movies (albeit # movies) consistently throughout all of this, so him getting a part isn't a big deal,
HOWEVER...(The following is not fact, but a theory, I will write another note when back to facts)
...It was how they treated him like a king that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Not because of the treatment in and of itself, it's the reason
behind the treatment. Why did they treat him so well? They had him on a ton of talk shows, talking up this war type movie, that honestly looked
horrible (to myself.) - Anyway, what I think happened is an agreement or appeasement of the potential threat (Feldman). They play him up as some
godlike actor, and he drops it. He gets fame, etc all over again. I don't think Feldman was able to keep that promise, as he continuously made
vague statements through twitter and continued his crusade against pedophiles - as this happens, he drops from spotlight again.
Back to fact.
The current consensus is that it is one of 5ish people.
Nick Cage, Steven Spielberg, John Travolta, Charlie Sheen, and Brad Pitt.
Now, according to Feldman, it's an A-lister, who is living a family-man facade.
So initially, people ruled out Cage, and Sheen. They are not the 'family-man' type, nor do they pretend to be.
but Feldman stated in an interview
"Well I have to be completely honest and say, I'm not a huge fan of Charlie Sheen. I don't make it my goal to ever talk badly in the press, we're all
in it together, that's the way I look at it, but Charlie in particular, especially the way that he's affected other people that I know — point
blank, Charlie and Corey started their careers pretty much together, and Corey fought for his entire life to recover from those early experiences and
to get his life together"
So now let's think back to the two people ruled out, more specifically, Charlie sheen.
When he divorced from his wife, his wife gave a testimony against him, that he had visited porn sites which appeared to have underage people. When
confronted, Sheen threatened her (multiple times, multiple occasions). One that stands out, "You'll never make it to the hearing".
He is known for domestic abuse. Which again, goes against everything Feldman said, but...let's remember, Feldman is a victim. To feldman, I would
imagine, from his point of view, if his friends abuser, or his own, has a wife, or kids, then they fall under "Family-man". Remember, this person
destroyed his friends life, any sort of family, even if was just a wife, would look like, to the victim, a family-man.
I think, if anyone is named, it'll be Sheen. The fact that the article states "Hollywood is sick of this person" - probably has less to do with the
pedophilia, and more to do with him being unable to work in Hollywood anymore. (At least not without major issues, he has been acting like a diva
past couple years. Lost his job on Two and a half men, announced that he had aids, etc.)
