Actor Corey Feldman named his sexual predator in an interview with Dr. Oz on Thursday. Feldman first revealed his sexual harassment story in his 2014 autobiography but had referred to his attacker by a false name.
The 80s star said the man who attacked him when he was 14 years old is named John Grissom, an actor who had bit parts in some of Feldman’s films including “License to Drive” (1988) and “Dream a Little Dream” (1989).
Prior to the singer’s revelation on the talk show, Feldman wrote about the alleged pedophile in his 2014 autobiography, “Coreyography: A Memoir,” identifying Grissom by a false name, Ron Crimson, as advised by his lawyers at the time.
However, Grissom, who has been suspected by some on social media for several weeks, addressed speculation that he was Feldman’s predator.
On Grissom’s comment section on YouTube he denied Feldman’s accusations and wrote to one site user, “I said it’s not me I’m sick and tired of saying that when no one listens. So goddamnit I’m not repeating it anymore.”
Feldman warned Hollywood pedophiles issuing a message, “Now is your time. Be a man for the first time and come forward yourself. Turn yourself in. Let it be known…If you do not we’re coming for you.”
