Corey Feldman Claims He Was Stabbed, Shows Photos From Hospital Bed
The former 1980s child star believed he was being followed the night of March 27, saying his bodyguard aimed a flashlight into an adjacent car, according to information Feldman told police, via TMZ. Feldman then said one of the occupants exited that vehicle and confronted the guard at the next stoplight. Another came over to the driver’s side and confronted Feldman with something “long and sharp.” Feldman said he feared it was a syringe.

An earlier TMZ update that indicated no lacerations were found on Feldman’s body was changed to say that police found a mark. Reports from Fox News and the Los Angeles Times say police told them they saw no mark on Feldman’s body.
On Twitter, Feldman said that a Hollywood “wolfpack” was after him due to his work in exposing Hollywood pedophiles. He also posted a link to one of his crowdfunding campaigns so that people could donate towards his security costs.

Feldman has come back into the spotlight in recent months after Hollywood sex scandals involving producer Harvey Weinstein were widely reported in the media. Feldman has in the past talked to media about his own experiences with sexual abuse as a child actor and recently revealed he was looking to crowdfund the production of a film to expose pedophiles in Hollywood.
After Feldman announced his movie funding campaign, he was interviewed by Dr. Oz, Matt Lauer, and Megyn Kelly. During those interviews, he revealed the names of three people he said abused him during his acting career and vowed to reveal more through the movie.
@LAPD R CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE CASE AS AN ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE! I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL SM PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE “WOLFPACK” & THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS! I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HOW SICK R THESE PPL?!?

His crowdfunding campaign has yet to reach its funding goal even after lowering it, and a sexual assault report filed by Feldman was dropped by the LAPD, USA Today reported. Charges against him claiming sexual battery were also dropped, Page Six reported. He has been criticized by some for not directly revealing the names of those he says abused children in Hollywood. During an intense interview with Matt Lauer, who soon after faced his own sexual misconduct allegations, Feldman questioned why his peers in Hollywood, who he says are also aware, aren’t under the same pressure to name names.
“There are thousands of people in Hollywood who have the same information. Why is it all on me? Why is it if I don’t release the names in the next two months, six months, or a year, I’m the bad guy? I’m the victim here. I’m the one who’s been abused.”
LAPD posted via Twitter that they are investigating.
