Parties where predators “groomed” their victims, men who used “intimidation” to keep victims quiet and the feeling of being passed “back and forth” between them.
Goonies and Lost Boys star Corey Feldman has opened up about his painful childhood in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The reveal comes after Actor Elijah Wood made headlines for his comments in The Sunday Times that claimed “organised sexual abuse of children in Hollywood is rife”.
Feldman told the publication that although he had never been formally raped, he was repeatedly molested by several unnamed figures.
"There were some molestations and it did come from several hands, so to speak, but with Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape," he said.
Feldman spoke in depth about fellow child star Corey Haim who he said was the victim of rape at the young age of 11.
"As I look at my son, a sweet, innocent, 11-year-old boy and then try to put him in Corey Haim's shoes, I go, 'oh my God'," he said.
The interview revealed Feldman's childhood of parties where men would "groom" the young guests who he estimated were between the ages of 10 - 16.
“They would throw these parties where you’d walk in and it would be mostly kids and there would be a handful of adult men," he said.
The Lost Boys actor also spoke about his relationship with Michael Jackson and attributed their loss of friendship to the star's "dark side".
"But he was a friend and our relationship did not end well. We had a falling out, and that was due to the fact that there was definitely a dark side to him," Feldman said.

Feldman said that although he would "love" to name those involved, the Californian statute of limitations means that he would be prosecuted for defamation.
"I were to go and mention anybody's name I would be the one that would be in legal problems and I'm the one that would be sued," he said.
Feldman did however speak about one person who claims would try and intimidate his victims with threats.
"This person uses intimidation and threats as a way to keep people quiet. And all these men were all friends," he said.
"Ask anybody in our group of kids at that time: They were passing us back and forth to each other."
Feldman now lives with his girlfriend and 11-year-old son after two divorces in 1993 and 2009.
