NME Festival blog: Corey Feldman denies “egregious accusations” after being investigated by police for sexual battery
Corey Feldman is being investigated by police for sexual battery, according to reports. He has since denied the “egregious accusations” in a statement.
Former child star Feldman has himself claimed to have been abused during the early years of his career and recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to “expose” an alleged Hollywood paedophile ring.
In December, audio was reportedly found of Feldman giving the police names of alleged Hollywood paedophiles back in 1993.
Now, the LAPD has confirmed that a female victim filed a police report of sexual battery against Feldman on Monday (January 8). The incident is alleged to have occurred on February 4, 2017. Feldman is accused of groping the alleged victim’s rear.
Feldman has disputed the claims, with his representative saying in a statement: “Corey vehemently denies these egregious accusations. It goes against everything he believes in and is fighting for – victim protection and stopping inappropriate behavior towards both children and adults.”
Last October, Feldman was labelled a “scam artist” by late co-star Corey Haim’s mother over his claims of a Hollywood paedophile ring.
