Actor Corey Feldman is living in fear following the publication of his new autobiography, Coreyology, because he's convinced the sick Hollywood executives and stars who preyed on him and other child stars, like late pal Corey Haim, in the 1980s are out to silence him. The Lost Boys star opens up about the sex abuse he was subjected to as a teen by big name Tinseltown players, who are still active in the industry today. Feldman doesn't name names in the book, insisting it's not his job to incriminate people - but there is one former talent manager he has identified, convicted child molester Martin Weiss, who pleaded no contest to abusing a young artist in 2011. He was sentenced to a year in jail but released the same day after it was agreed he had already served the time in the run-up to the case. Appearing on U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live on Thursday (07Nov13), Feldman said, "I know a lot of these monsters are definitely still working in the industry... Marty Weiss... is out there. If he wants to put a hit on me, hey, I believe God protects me from evil like that... (but) I am very scared. "As much as I go out there with bravery and confidence and I talk like I'm positive, I still have my moments where I question it... Last night, I was sitting there going, 'Oh my God, a whole nother (sic) day of interviews. Am I doing the right thing? God, please give me guidance.'" And Feldman admits he's not getting a lot of support from his family and friends as he opens up about his troubled past in the revealing new book. He adds, "My mom doesn't support this. Judy Haim, Corey's mum, doesn't support this. All these people are coming out, trying to say that I'm a liar for telling my story... I didn't even wanna tell my story, I was scared to tell my story, but I just knew somewhere in my heart this has to be done." In Coreyology, Feldman also opens up about the physical abuse he experienced at the hands of his mother, who battled drug abuse when he was younger. She has denied the allegations while her son claims she "blocked it out purposefully".
