Corey Haim pulled a Brittany Murphy
Walking punchline to every 80s joke Corey Haim died this morning from an apparent accidental overdose while battling the flu, according to TMZ:
We’ve learned Corey had been sick the last couple of days with flu-like symptoms. The medications recovered, however, were not related to his illness, sources tell TMZ.
We’re told no illicit drugs were found in the apartment.
Sources say Haim got out of bed just before 1 AM and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 AM and Corey was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM.
Corey’s mom told authorities he had been battling prescription drug addiction for years.
While it must’ve been terrible to see her drug addict son reach his inevitable conclusion, the person I feel most sad for is Corey Feldman who no doubt was awaken in the middle of the night when their psychic bond was broken.
COREY: *sits straight up* Imzadi. NOOOOO!
HOOKER: Baby, calm down, you’re having a bad dream.
COREY: Ack! You’re not Michael Jackson!
