Corey Feldman bailing on Corey Haim’s funeral
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.
