LOS ANGELES, CA — Police on Wednesday disputed claims by Corey Feldman that he was stabbed by an unknown assailant while sitting in his car Tuesday night.
In a post to his Twitter account, Feldman, 46, said he was attacked and repeatedly stabbed in the stomach by an assailant as his bodyguards were distracted.
“IM IN THE HOSPITAL! I WAS ATTACKED 2NITE!,” Feldman posted in all caps to his Twitter account. “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!”
In a follow-up tweet, Feldman said the Los Angleles Police Department was investigating the attack as an “attempted murder” and that he believes the assault was an attempt to silence him for speaking out against pedophilia in Hollywood.
“@LAPD R CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE CASE AS AN ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE!,” Feldman wrote. “I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL SM PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE “WOLFPACK” & THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS! I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HOW SICK R THESE PPL?!?”
Fans were quick to tweet messages of prayers and condolences to Feldman, who has been in the center of a firestorm since announcing his plans to produce a movie documented what he says is an “epidemic” of pedophilia in the movie industry.
But LAPD officials are telling a very different story.
When contacted for statement, Officer Luis Garcia of the LAPD told Fox News that in his police report, Feldman claimed that while stopped at an intersection Tuesday night, an unknown male made a stabbing motion at his stomach and fled. The former child star then reportedly drove himself to a hospital.
“Upon the investigation [it was] determined there were no lacerations to his abdomen,” Garcia said adding that when questioned, Feldman was unable to describe his alleged attacker or the weapon to police.
Feldman, a former child star best known for his role in “The Goonies,” “Licensed to Drive” and “Stand By Me” has made the rounds on various talk shows in recent months promising to name high profile Hollywood moguls who he claimed molested him as a child.
He has set up various GoFundMe accounts hoping to raise the funds he says are necessary for his production of a docu-film on the topic. Feldman also claims the funds are needed to provide him with round-the-clock security due to having the recipient of recent “death threats”.
