Corey Feldman bailing on Corey Haim’s funeral

March 15th, 2010 // 61 Comments

Despite going on Larry King Live and chastising everyone not named Corey Feldman, Corey Feldman won’t be attending Corey Haim’s funeral tomorrow, or isn’t even invited if I’m reading this statement correctly. Via E! News:

“In the days following my best friend Corey Haim’s death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me. I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey’s funeral, however, due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey’s funeral on Tuesday a small private affair. Understanding the recent media attention and to be respectful of the family’s wishes, I have decided not to attend.
Instead, I will remain in Los Angeles quietly mourning and planning his memorial. As a sign of respect, I am asking the media to honor Corey Haim by making the same choice. I am working with a few people who were close to Corey to put a memorial together within the next month. At that time, the media will be invited to honor and celebrate the legacy he has left behind, along with friends, fans and the rest of the Hollywood community.”

Is it me or has Corey Feldman horribly overestimated his standing as a media draw? Don’t get me wrong, Corey Haim dying was probably the best thing Feldman could’ve hoped for to remain relevant, but does anyone even care anymore? I honestly forgot this whole thing even happened. No, really, I read this a few minutes ago and started screaming “Corey Haim’s dead?! NOOO!” before ripping down every Tiger Beat on my wall.

    lol, what kind of religion was Corey a part of that his “bff” couldn’t attend?
    Malarky!

    Seriously, aside that I must admit I enjoyed their films in the 80′s, looking at them just reminds me of how old I am and makes me think if I look that tore up too. Mr. Feldman, please just shut your pie hole.

    I get what he’s saying. I don’t think he’s acting like he’s important, he just knows the vultures will be out looking to get that shot of him at the funeral. I respect his decision.

  5. L

    ORRRR, he IS going to the funeral, but just saying that so that paps won’t try to photograph it? Because Feldman attending is the big draw right? Ahaha…waiting for Kiefer Sutherland to “speak out”..hopefully drunk.

    Who are these people?
    I dont know who the fuck these people are. Why do you write about them?

  7. Aja

    Marius, you’re obviously too young or you live under a rock.

  8. Deuce Bigalow

    I never cared for Feldman. Even as a kid this guy annoyed me

  9. Name(required)

    Corey Feldman= Buttsweat

  10. ZippytheWonderSlug

    Who’s the chick with the tits? Wow, If that’s his mom, I want to mourn naked with her!!!!!

  11. Not mother

    What an ass! (Amazing how multi-purpose that sentence is here at the superficial.)

  12. KIKI

    Anyone know when the Feldman approved memorial services is scheduled? I think I will wait until then to mourn.

  13. Maximus

    The chick = Susie Sprague, Corey Feldman’s wife.

    Google’s a wonderful thing.

  14. Bernard

    Give the Guy a break. He may be ugly and also a drug addict, but we’re talking about his brother and home boy. Everyone handles it (death) differently.

  15. Shakespeare

    How come he was such a big star, died penniless, living in a shithole apartment, but still had a beautiful wife. Where did all the money go?

  16. SO RIGHT

    Corey Feldman is delusional, and you’re right superfish “totally overestimating” his own importance. And no Corey F., Corey Haims dying is not going to get you that comeback you’re SOOOO seeking. I also 100% agree with # 8.

  17. KIKI

    @ 15: To quote the Talking Heads “This is not my beautiful wife.”

  18. Aja

    #15 – That’s not Haim’s wife, it’s Feldman’s. Everything you said still can be applied to Feldman though. Just not the dying part.

  19. Yoda

    In other words, Corey Feldman is too fucking broke himself to afford the plane ticket.

  20. Dilo

    I wouldn’t go either.

  21. Gay Fish

    They were butt pirates together…..

  22. sborrainboc

    How did Feldman marry such a nice piece of ass? The world is unjust…

  23. Feldman looks mid-twenties, Haim looks unrecognizable. Is it all lifestyle or genetics?

    Check out these contrasts (click my name, video is about ’06):

    Jamison Newlander isn’t instantly recognizable either.

  24. hamburglar007

    Well, considering that sites like this are covering the death and the other Corey, and have nothing but negative things to say, perhaps he has a point.

  25. I’ve written about Haim and Feldman at Daily Obsession if you want to read more… I think Feldman lacks class in deciding not to go to Haim’s funeral tomorrow. It can’t be that he’s not invited — Feldman called both Judy and Corey “family” and has told press he’s driven them to Judy’s doctor appointments as she battles breast cancer. I’m disappointed in the remaining Corey…

  26. @ 22 – Huh, I forgot that Feldman’s first wife was Vanessa Marcil :

    Mr. Feldman decided not to attend! Glad he is not my friend.

  28. Corey Feldman is a tool.

    I think it’s funny that the major media outlets (and pretty much everybody else) are nearly completely disinterested in Haim’s death, but Feldman finds a way to try to spin himself. “Are you kidding?!? You think the vultures wouldn’t be circling Corey RIGHT NOW if I hadn’t insisted they leave him alone?! I’m a fucking HERO. Print that!”

  30. Dn

    If Corey Haim was truly Corey Feldman’s friend, I don’t think he’d care if Feldman got some pub for having a memorial service for him. No matter what Feldman does, he’s gonna get slammed by somebody for it, so he might as well do what he thinks is best, whether or not it’s best for Haim and his family, it’s hard to say for certain. Who the hell knows what kind of friendship these two REALLY had. EIther way, Feldman’s a douche for protesting his cast mates for catching and eating fish on, The Surreal Life that time, so fuck him. If you had Michael Jackson pissing into cups and God knows what else, right in front of you, you’d all be fucked up, too.

    “No matter what Feldman does, he’s going to get slammed by somebody for it, so he may as well do what he thinks is best, whether or not it’s best for Haim and his family, it’s hard to say for certain.” (dn #31)

    Dn, even you realize what you’re saying here makes no sense as you end it with “it’s hard to say for certain.” How would Feldman ever be “slammed” for attending Haim’s funeral? How could it be “best” for him not to attend? Yes, it’s Feldman’s choice, but it is a selfish one that he’ll have to live with…

    Dear Superficial Blogger and the Majority of Posters:

    You are uneducated, insensitive morons.

    Mr/Mrs. Snarky blogger -you are evil personified and a fine
    example of whats wrong with this town/the bizness.

    Readers (& Snarker): you need to go to church (or something) to
    gain a grasp of what it means have a sense of empathy, charity and
    humanity.

    Ya’ll suck.

    @ 32. Sheri
    Because Feldman has reasons for not attending, whatever they are you have to take them at face value. If you don’t believe him and think he has other motives, then it’s just speculation by an objective observer. That’s why you can’t be certain. Yeah, there are some who would probably claim he’s trying to hog the limelight, or some other self motivated reason, and you know it.

    He’ll have to live with NOT going to his funeral? It’s more important to be there for a friend when they’re alive, than it is when they’re going to buried. Funerals are just a ritual

    And everything we do in life is selfish by nature, since ultimately it is about how it will make us feel better, or less worse about ourselves.

  35. Stupid

    30. Uncle Eccoli , maybe if you knew how to read & use the internet you will notice all the main websites are still talking about Corey Haim. You are just to dense to realize this.

  36. @ 35 – “It’s more important to be there for a friend when they’re alive, than it is when they’re going to buried. ”

    True. If you’re shitty to me 362 days a year I don’t want you around on special occasions. If I’m dead I probably don’t care much one way or the other. Make good use of the time you have.

  37. Uncle Eccoli

    @36

    “‘Main’ websites” Lol

    Poor Corey H. RIP. Shame those drugs were starting to make him look like a younger Mickey Rourke though.

  39. Burt

    “lol, what kind of religion was Corey a part of that his “bff” couldn’t attend?”

    He was Jewish. Correct me if I’m wrong, but traditionally, only the immediate family of the deceased can attend a Jewish funeral.

    @40 – you’re wrong. Unless you mean orthodox Jews, which I can’t attest to, but which Haim wasn’t. The rest of us have large funerals and everyone comes to sit shiva, too.

    ………..IT’S NOT A BIRTHDAY BASH.

    “@40 – you’re wrong. Unless you mean orthodox Jews, which I can’t attest to, but which Haim wasn’t. The rest of us have large funerals and everyone comes to sit shiva, too.”

    Thanks for clarifying that. I had a feeling the info I had was wrong.

  47. Sheri

    Well Haim’s Toronto funeral is over. There were “hundreds” of people there including ex neighbors of Haim who remembered him and wanted to pay their respects. I still think Feldman was selfish and disrespectful for not going no matter what excuses some of you are making for it!!!! Ultimately, it was Feldman’s decision, but there’s no doubt it was selfish!!! What you have to remember is that it’s Feldman himself that kept saying Corey Haim was his “family” and “brother.”Going to the Toronto funeral wouldn’t have stopped Feldman in any way from still going ahead with his planned April Hollywood memorial for Haim. Case closed people.

  49. YS0317H3They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are moncler jackets. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try “delousing” the closet in your own jordans sheoes room.Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they’ll give you as many nike air force 1 times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real designer clothing life.Life is not divided into semesters.
