I am soooooooooo sad. R.I.P. Your in our hearts forever!

My heart goes out to his mother. They were very close. She must be devastated. Really hoped he would make a big come back. That might have made a difference in his self distructive drug use. Huge crush on him for 20yrs. =-(

You are such an idiot.
Drugs killed Cory- and he was a drug abuser ever since he was about 14. That's what killed him...

You sound just as stupid and pathetic as Britney Murphy's husband blaming the director who fired her from the movie she was making.

Pathetic enabling finger pointers like you don't help any recovering addict.

omg i'm SO sad!!! i am a child of the 80's and i LOVED the corey's..corey haim in particular...i thought he was SO ADORABLE the way he would do his lip in like that elvis thing he did, his cute little lisp, and his adorable face..i was so sad to see that he had such a battle with drugs and the obvious toll that it took on his life..i pray for his loved ones, and especially for corey feldman..they have been connected for years and since he recently broke ties with corey(haim)it must make him feel that much worse...my thoughts and prayers are with you and all of corey's family..may he be at peace...

You people need to get over all this Hollywood obsession! It's just another teen "star" burnout doing what they do,they have the world handed to them, and then do EVERYTHING they can to mess it up. The list goes on and on, I don't like seeing people die early, but more of this is what Hollywood might need. For the record, its not sad, its pathetic.

Wow, big surprise! Who didn't see that one coming from twenty years off?! One by one all the drug abusing, self degrading losers will die off, and the world will be a better place. Cannot wait to see who is next in Hollywood... hopefully Lindsay Lohan.
