Former child star Corey Feldman has found himself at the center of a new sexual battery complaint filed with police in Los Angeles on Monday (08Jan18).
According to TMZ.com, the Lost Boys actor has been accused of grabbing an unidentified woman’s backside without permission in early 2017.
Further details about the incident have yet to be released, but Feldman’s representative tells the outlet the 46-year-old “vehemently denies these egregious claims”.
The news emerges as Corey continues to fight to expose pedophiles in Hollywood, who allegedly used him and others for sex when he was a child.
Los Angeles police authorities opened an investigation into Feldman’s claims in November (17), after he publicly named actor John Grissom as one of his reported molesters while discussing his campaign for justice during an appearance on Dr. Oz, and this week (begs08Jan18), he offered to team up with action man Terry Crews, who was allegedly groped by a top talent agent, to battle Hollywood’s ongoing sexual misconduct problem.
“I thought about (reaching out to Terry), but I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with everything that I’m doing, but here’s an open invitation,” he told E! News. “Terry, if you’re listening, I’m more than happy to join forces with you and work together. I’m willing to work with anybody. Can I just put that out there?”
Feldman is also working to raise $10 million to make a film about the alleged abuse he and others suffered as child stars. He recently told Today he needs the cash in part for security purposes to secure the set and hire people to protect him.
He added to E! News, “I’m willing to work with anybody that wants to aid in this fight. If you want to help me get this film made, to tell the truth, please help me.”
