The L.A. Times reports that teen idol Corey Haim was found unresponsive in his apartment near Burbank, CA early in this morning. Corey was rushed to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 3:30am. The LAPD believes he died of an overdose. Corey was just 38.
Corey is best known for being featured on a poster you kept on your closet door when Lost Boys first came out. Corey also starred in other gems of the 80s like License to Drive, Dream a Little Dream and Watchers. In 2007, Corey co-starred with Corey Feldman in A&E’s The Two Coreys. So now there’s just one Corey….
Corey’s addiction to the bad shit wasn’t a secret. Anybody (and by that I mean, everybody) who watched an episode of The Two Coreys could see that he had his struggles. Sad.
Rest in peace, Corey. You brought joy into the hearts (and genitals) of a million tweens in the 80s and you had amazing hair. Seriously, his hair was amazing.
And Tiger Beat BETTER pay tribute to Corey Haim on their cover this week. I’m not joking.
