Corey Feldman: "Being with Michael Jackson brought me back to my innocence"

Corey Feldman gained fame as a child in the Eighties with films like "The Goonies," and "Stand By Me". Feldman and Michael Jackson met in 1984 when Steven Spielberg invited Jackson on the set of "The Goonies", and since then they remained friends. Feldman was among the people approached by the police in regards to Jackson, during the investigation of the Jordan Chandler case.

The highlight of Corey Feldman's story was his police interview. The tapes of his investigation were leaked to the media and exposed the misconduct of the authorities against Jackson. The investigators manipulated their witnesses and refused to believe those who said the star had never touched or molested them. Shockingly, the tapes also reveal the police's complete lack of interest in stopping child sexual abuse in Hollywood: Feldman told the investigators he wasn't molested by Jackson but by another celebrity, but they ignored his claims. "All they cared about was trying to find something on Michael Jackson - who was innocent," said Feldman in an interview.


Feldman says Jackson was his good friend and that nothing inappropriate ever happened.

Excerpts from Corey Feldman's book (Coreyography: A Memoir), 2013

Ralph and Bill [pseudonym] had been working together, coercing young men into their home, I was just the latest in a series of boys to be groomed. I was shattered, disgusted, devastated. I needed some normalcy in my life. So, I called Michael Jackson.


Michael Jackson’s world, crazy as it sounds, had become my happy place. He was adamantly against drugs and alcohol, he was extremely straightlaced; I couldn’t even swear around him. Being with Michael brought me back to my innocence. When I was with Michael, it was like being ten years old again.

When I first heard that Michael Jackson had been accused of child molestation, I almost laughed – it seemed so ridiculous. Then I got a call from the LAPD; a sergeant and a detective wanted to talk to me about my friendship with him.

The audiotapes have long since been leaked to the press – I clearly stated that Michael never touched me, never acted in any way inappropriate. What’s incredible about them, however, is that I admitted that I had been molested; I even named my abuser. The sergeant peppering me with questions, Deborah Linden, breezed right past that. She didn’t seem the least bit interested.
