Corey Feldman is alive. This much we know for certain.
That may be a different question altogether.
As reported earlier in the day on Wednesday, the former child actor was sent to the hospital late Tuesday after he was allegedly attacked in his car while stopped at a red light in Los Angeles.
Feldman posted multiple times on Twitter about the incident, alleging he was the victim of a homicide attempt.
Why would anyone want to kill Corey Feldman?
Because, the actor states, he has threatened for years to expose various pedophiles in Hollywood who laid their hands on himself and late friend Corey Haim.
Tweeted Feldman shortly after he was attacked:
IM IN THE HOSPITAL! I WAS ATTACKED 2NITE! A MAN OPENED MY CAR DOOR & STABBED ME W SOMETHING!
PLEASE SAY PRAYERS 4 US! THANK GOD IT WAS ONLY MYSELF & MY SECURITY IN THE CAR, WHEN 3 MEN APPROACHED!
WHILE SECURITY WAS DISTRACTED, W A GUY A CAR PULLED UP & ATTACKED! I’M OK!
Here's the thing, however:
A Los Angeles Police Officer says Feldman was not stabbed, not with a knife at least.
This officer says "an unknown suspect opened the driver’s side door of the vehicle and proceeded to make a jabbing motion with an unidentified object towards Feldman’s abdomen area."
He adds that "there were no lacerations to Feldman’s abdomen or any other area of his body."
So... what gives?
“Corey got jabbed with a long, sharp object last night after a business meeting,” his rep tells People Magazine, adding:
“He was in the car with his security team at the time. Initially, he was very shaken up and scared.
"He thinks he was stabbed with a syringe of some sort and there is concern that it may be infected.”
This rep also says Feldman is being “tested for HIV” and “any other diseases” that could result from this sort of weapon.
Speaking to TMZ, Feldman backs up this account.
He says the puncture from the stabbing was small and drew a just a small amount of blood, yet he was worried enough to go to the hospital.
Eventually, cops arrived and debriefed him and his security guard, who was on the scene and behind the wheel at the time of the incident.
In a follow-up Tweet early Wednesday, Feldman says his attackers may have been members of "The Wolfpack."
This is the name he has given to the group of individuals who want him to stop talking about his past in Hollywood.
"@LAPD CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE CASE AS AN ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE! I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL [SOCIAL MEDIA] PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE ‘WOLFPACK’ & THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS!” he wrote, adding:
“I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HOW SICK R THESE PPL?!"
Feldman also linked to various articles about the attack on Twitter today.
His rep also mentions this mysterious Wolfpack in his latest statement, saying of Feldman and what has transpired:
"The ‘wolfpack’ make videos everyday threatening and bashing him and while we don’t have proof that they were involved, he was terrified and didn’t know what hit him.
"The attackers didn’t ask for his wallet or take his car. It was very quick. He didn’t recognize them."
LAPD spokeswoman Officer Rosario Herrera says there is “no suspect at this time and the investigation is ongoing."
In his 2013 memoir, Feldman alleged that he and his best friend at the time, fellow child star Haim, had been sexually abused by people in the industry.
Haim died of pneumonia in 2010, but drugs were found in his system and Feldman has argued that Haim turned to narcotics in order to deal with all the terrible things that had been done to him.
During an appearance on Megyn Kelly Today in October, Feldman said he was “fearing for [his] life” because there had been incidents in the past when attempts were made to take him out for good.
