Eighties teen star Corey Feldman has called paedophilia “the biggest problem in Hollywood” after "exposing" ring of alleged rapists in a new documentary.

In an interview with The Guardian, the star of The Goonies and Stand By Me spoke about the film, Truth: The Rape of the Two Coreys, which names his Lost Boys co-star Corey Haim’s alleged abusers and what he believes is a conspiracy to protect them.

Feldman, 48, suggested that he is struggling to get the documentary released, because “nobody wants to go after the bad guys”.

The interview notes that Feldman has emails from lawyers “denying him access to police reports and video footage”.

According to Feldman, Haim – who died in 2010 – was raped by “a major Hollywood figure while making the 1986 film Lucas”.

Back in the 1980s, Feldman and Haim were two of the most popular teen stars in the world.

But by 19, after these alleged assaults took place, both were addicted to drugs and struggling to land film roles.

Former child actor Alison Arngrim has said that Feldman and Haim were “‘passed around”, “given drugs” and “used for sex”.

According to Feldman, Haim said his rapist told him: “If you want to be in this business, you have to do these things”.

Feldman has also claimed to have been regularly molested by John Grissom after being hired by Feldman’s father to look after him.

Grissom has since been convicted as a paedophile.
