Former child star Corey Haim, who passed away yesterday morning, had eight film projects in the works and was dating a new love interest before he died.

That being Daisy de la Hoya of VH1's Daisy of Love fame.

While it's all relative, things appeared to be looking up for Haim, who famously battled substance abuse for years. He collapsed at home early Wednesday.

His recent love took to (what else) Twitter to express her public devastation: "I'm sooooooo devastated right now," Daisy de la Hoya Tweeted this morning.

"This is the worst day ever I can't believe this."

Daisy de la Hoya and Corey Haim were a thing.

"Daisy loved The Lost Boys, and she always had a crush on Corey," a source close to de la Hoya says. "Their first official date was two weeks ago, but they'd been hanging out a little while before that. Corey invited her to the Playboy Mansion."

"Corey Feldman came, too."

Daisy de la Hoya apparently wanted to help Haim with his struggles. "Daisy knew Corey was doing a lot of drugs, especially prescription meds," the source says. "She thought he was kind and talented, and she wanted to rescue him."

"She became his confidant over the last few weeks. He opened up to her a lot. They were having a lot of fun getting to know each other and seeing what would happen. Corey told Daisy she is a beautiful person with a beautiful heart."

We hope Corey has finally found some inner peace and wish Daisy, along with all the actor's family and friends, nothing but the best in this tragic time.

The surprising death of Corey Haim earlier today came after he collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's apartment and four prescription bottles were found.

Law enforcement sources say Corey had been sick the last couple of days with flu-like symptoms, though the medications recovered were not related to his illness.

No illegal drugs were found in the apartment.

Sources say Haim got out of bed this morning and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 a.m. Corey was taken to the hospital and died 2:15 a.m.

A witness at the apartment complex says paramedics spent 20 minutes in the apartment before carrying him out on a stretcher with an oxygen mask over his face.

Authorities have wrapped up their preliminary investigation and believe, though they are not yet certain, that Corey died of an accidental drug overdose.

Corey Haim (1971-2010) had battled prescription drug addiction for years.

The troubled actor was approached in the last 10 days by the casting company for Celebrity Rehab, according to reports, but abruptly declined that offer.

Casting producers say he was "extremely defensive, saying, 'It's the last show I'd ever do.'" He ended the conversation saying "I do not need help."

Dude, even DMX wants Dr. Drew's help. Ain't no shame in it.

Haim will forever be tied to his namesake and fellow former child star, Corey Feldman, with whom he starred in several hit films during the 1980s.

Feldman released a statement on the death of his best friend Haim, which he calls "tragic" and begs people to learn a "lesson" from Haim's passing.

In the statement on Feldman's blog, the actor says "My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face."

He adds, "We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference.

Actor Corey Haim has been found dead in Los Angeles. He was 38.

The LAPD said that the troubled former child star's death appeared to be the result of an accidental drug overdose, and an investigation is currently underway.

Haim is best known for '80s films License To Drive and The Lost Boys. Haim and actor Corey Feldman starred in License To Drive and Dream a Little Dream.

Sadly, Haim's drug abuse took over his life and helped ruin his once-promising career. He attempted a 2006 comeback with the reality show The Two Coreys

R.I.P. Corey Haim (1971-2010).

The successful show, again pairing him with his namesake, lasted two seasons, but Corey Feldman refused to do a third because of Haim's continued drug use.

We'll have more details on Corey Haim's death if and when they are available as the story develops. We wish his family and friends the best in this tough time.
