Corey Feldman Skipping Corey Haim Funeral Today, Planning Separate Memorial Within the Month

by at . Comments

Corey Feldman will not be at Corey Haim's funeral today out of respect for his best friend and fellow former child star's family's wishes, the actor said in a statement.

"In the days following my best friend Corey Haim's death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me," Feldman said.

"Due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy," he continued. "The family has decided to make Corey Haim's funeral on Tuesday a small private affair."

The private funeral service will take place Tuesday in Toronto, and is funded Startifacts, a celebrity memorabilia Web site, which volunteered to donate $20,000.

The money for the funeral will come from the auctioning off Haim's belongings. His family asks fans to send flowers to a local cancer ward instead of the service.

Corey Feldman will be MIA today, but says he will be planning a separate, public memorial for his Lost Boys co-star that will reportedly take place around April 2.

"I am working with a few people who were close to Corey to put a memorial together within the next month," he said. "The media will be invited to honor and celebrate the legacy he left behind, along with friends, fans and the Hollywood community."

Corey Haim died Wednesday at the age of 38 of an apparent drug overdose while at his mother's Los Angeles. He fought a long battle with substance abuse in life.

Haim's mom said he had an enlarged heart, pulmonary congestion and water in his lungs at the time of his death, which has been linked to a massive drug ring.

The L.A. County Coroner's office is awaiting results of toxicology tests and has not ruled out a drug overdose, though it does not appear to be foul play or suicide.

Oh my God, I still find it hard to believe that our beloved Corey Haim had passed away. I feel bad that his life was cut short cause of his drug use. I dont judge him cause I was struggling with substance abuse. I just wished that his so called famous friends wouldve been there for him. To me, Corey Haim was and will always be the most handsome actor of all time. R.I.P Corey Ian Haim.

I wonder if Feldman will dress like Haim in Lost Boys as a tribute similar to how he dressed as MJ at his funeral
