Pedophilia is the 'number one secret' in Hollywood, claims former Child Actor

American actor Corey Feldman is on a mission to expose as to how molestation has become an epidemic plaguing Hollywood and has raised a warning for all the parents.

In a recent interview, Corey Feldman, who was a former child star, has recapitulated his past claim that pedophilia is the top-secret maintained in Hollywood.

Feldman further stated that despite the recent awareness in the fraternity regarding sexual harassment and abuse allegations, he believes child molestation is an epidemic that is plaguing the industry.He quoted: “The parents must be shaking. I don’t bring my kid in this industry, what does that refer to you?”

The 46-year-old claimed that he and his best friend in personal life and co-star in several hit teen movies of the 80s –Haim- were often sexually abused by predators within the industry.

Haim is known for bravely battling drug addiction throughout his life, which Feldman says was a way Haim preferred for numbing the pain caused by years of sexual abuse. Haim died of pneumonia in 2010 when he was 38-years-old.
