Former Hollywood child star Corey Feldman vowed on NBC's "Today" show Monday to release all the names of the powerful people in Hollywood that he alleges are part of a massive pedophilia ring in Hollywood.
Feldman is currently asking for people to donate to his project, reportedly a theatrical retelling of his story as a child actor that will also reveal names of prominent people in Hollywood who abused him. Feldman's Indiegogo crowd funding page has a set goal of $10 million for the film.
“It’s not a documentary,” Feldman told host Matt Lauer. “It is a film. I want to make a feature film, which is why we need the budget that we need.”
Feldman contends that this film will blow the lid off of the rampant pedophilia plaguing Tinseltown, telling Lauer that thousands of people in Hollywood know about it. Since first coming out with this claim, Feldman says he's received death threats and now fears for his life.
“Why aren’t you talking to police right now?” Lauer asked.
To his credit, Feldman said that not only did he go to police in 1993 when they were investigating the late pop star Michael Jackson (who Feldman claims was innocent) but that California’s statute of limitations laws are extensive, and that’s why he can't currently go to police.
According to the California Courts government website, the statute of limitations for “Injury to a person” is two years from the date of the injury.
Feldman addressed California’s statute of limitations as it pertains to his claims:
There’s a statute of limitations, Matt, in the state of California which protects people. It’s not that way in New York. It’s that way only where the movie industry is, conveniently enough in California. That’s the seriousness of this. You cannot. Because if I were to go to the police, I would be he one who’s getting sued. Henceforth, I need a team of lawyers and I need a team of security to be around me at all times, to keep me safe so I can get this message done.
As of this writing, Feldman’s Indiegogo campaign to fund his film has raised almost $162,000 in a little under a week.
“I’m not playing around. It’s serious stuff,” Feldman said finishing up the segment. “I vow I will release every name that I have any knowledge of, period. And nobody’s going to stop me this time, as long as people support this.”
