The two Coreys were best friends til the end. That’s what Corey Felman said on Larry King Live on Wednesday as he mourned the loss of Corey Haim.
Feldman revealed his pal Haim, who died at the age of 38 from an apparent overdose on Wednesday, had "shaped up" lately following years of substance abuse and multiple stints in rehab. "He got his act together. He was doing so much better… His mom got very ill. And when his mom got ill, it was the first time I ever saw Corey grow up. He was grown up. He was responsible."
Sadly, Feldman says Haim died "very broke, very destitute." Haim didn’t have a car and "had nobody to turn to."
Feldman revealed Haim was seeking medical treatment before his death. "I know that he was recently seeing a treatment specialist who was new in the mix, who he had only been seeing for the past two weeks. And that treatment specialist put him on a new line of medications, which were special medications. I’m not going to go into what they were, but let’s just say that they may not have corresponded properly with the medications that he was currently taking."
In the end, Feldman says of his friend, "Hopefully, he’s going to be remembered as a beautiful, funny, enigmatic character who brought nothing but life and light and entertainment and art to all of our lives."
