Hollywood Pedophilia Whistleblower Corey Feldman Responds to Reports of Drug Charges

October 23, 2017 Updated: October 5, 2018

Actor and singer Corey Feldman, who has alleged of widespread pedophilia in the upper circles of Hollywood, has responded to the reports that he and his crew have been charged with drug possession.

In a series of tweets he stated he was not arrested and only paid a fine for traffic violations and for having in his bus other members of his crew, who had legally-obtained drugs on them.

He called the timing of the drug charges “ironic,” possibly referring to his recent tweet that he’s working on a way to shed some light on pedophilia in Hollywood.

Feldman’s bus was stopped by police for speeding on Highway 425 in Mangham, Louisiana, on Saturday, Oct. 21. The officer ran Feldman’s license and found it was suspended. Upon taking him to the police station, the officer smelled marijuana.

Feldman agreed to a search. Police found marijuana and some controlled medication. Four members of his touring company were arrested for drug possession, posted bonds, and were released. Two, including Feldman, only paid fines.

Feldman tweeted on Sunday the marijuana was medical and the medication was also obtained legally, though it was not in original drug bottles. “No illegal or street drugs were found on the bus at all!” he tweeted in all caps.

He also stated he was charged with drug possession, but only a misdemeanor that didn’t require an arrest because the drugs weren’t found on him—only in his bus.

He stated the group was promised all charges could be dropped if they present prescriptions for the drugs.

“It was a bit of a good ol [sic] shakedown,” Feldman tweeted, saying the group paid the fines and bonds in cash and the officers then asked for pictures and autographs.

Feldman, a child star of the 1980s in movies like “Gremlins”, “The Goonies”, and “Stand by Me”,  later in life alleged he and his former costar, Corey Haim, were targets of pedophilia at the hands of well-connected people in Hollywood. He said pedophilia was the biggest problem in Hollywood. He refused to name names though, mentioning his and his family’s safety.

His allegations resurfaced with the recent fall of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who faces multiple allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault, including from well-known actresses.

On Friday, Feldman said on Twitter he doesn’t plant to go on a talk show and expose the abusers of his and others. He stated, though, he’s working on a plan that may “shed some lite [sic] on this situation” if he can “figure out a way 2 get actual justice while not risking my safety & well being.”
