Actor Corey Feldman appeared on the Dr. Oz show last week, finally naming two of his alleged abusers he says molested him and other young boys in the 80s.
Feldman has been vocal about his abuse for decades, stating Hollywood has a culture of child molestation. He told media outlets recently that he could name six people from the industry known to prey on young boys, one of which is still a big name player in the movie and television business.
The actor planned to disclose the names of these molesters in a documentary he was to film, direct and distribute from money raised in an Indiegogo Campaign. However, during his appearance on the Dr. Oz show, he revealed the names of two of his molesters – former talent manager, Marty Weiss, and former fellow actor, Jon Grissom.
Marty Weiss owned his own talent agency, Martin Weiss Management in the 1990s, which was successful until his arrest in 2011. Weiss was found guilty of sexually assaulting a former child client who was 11 at the time of abuse. Weiss’ company was the talent agency for many child actors appearing in TV shows such as iCarly, Heroes, and Good Luck Charlie, and films such as The Muppets and Jack and Jill.
Jon Grissom costarred with Feldman in a number of films such as License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. Like Weiss, Grissom was arrested and convicted for child molestation charges in 2001. According to Feldman, Grissom still taunts him by posting pictures of himself with Feldman and the late Corey Haim on social media.
After his appearance on the Dr. Oz show, Feldman called the Los Angeles Police Department to disclose the names of the Hollywood pedophiles as well as the details of his own abuse. In 1993, he reported allegations of his own abuse to the Santa Barbara Police Department, but always felt like it fell on deaf ears.
“They are going to do an interview with me when I get back to Los Angeles. However, they did give me the warning that based on the statute of limitations, they can only open an investigation, but they cannot promise that it will be prosecuted,” Feldman told CBS.
