HORROR OR HOAX? Police dispute Corey Feldman’s claims after actor says he was stabbed by would-be assassin

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”.

Vegas shooter’s brother busted on child porn charges; FBI refuses comment

HOLLYWOOD, CA — Bruce Paddock, brother of alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, was taken into custody Wednesday and charged with crimes relating to child pornography.

Paddock, 58, was found arrested at an assisted-living facility, where he was awaiting surgery for spinal stenosis.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles police department confirmed that a man fitting Paddock’s description was taken into custody in the 5300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard on suspicion of crimes related to child pornography.

A felony complaint filed against Paddock on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court said he had over 600 sexually explicit images of children on his personal computer and that he had also traded sexual images of children with others online.

Paddock faces 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography, according to the complaint.

Police sources say law enforcement officials were tipped off to Paddock’s online activities prior to the mass killing in Las Vegas.

After the shooting on Oct. 1 which left 58 dead and hundreds more wounded, Bruce Paddock told NBC News that he had not spoken to his brother Stephen for over 10 years and said he had no idea what would have driven him to open fire on music festival attendees from his room at the Mandalay Bay.

“I don’t know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else. It wasn’t suicide by cop since he killed himself,” he said at the time (https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/las-vegas-shooting/stephen-paddock-las-vegas-shooting-suspect-identified-n806471). “He killed a bunch of people and then killed himself so he didn’t have to face whatever it was.”

Paddock also told NBC that he had been “grilled” by the FBI in regard to what he may have or may not have known on more than one occasion.

“They were just asking about our childhood, what schools we went to, who his friends were, all the stuff we did,” he said.

On Wednesday, Sandra Breault, a spokeswoman for the FBI bureau in Las Vegas, refused to say whether Bruce Paddock’s arrest was tied to the agency’s investigation into the concert shooting.

“We have no comment at this time,” said Breault.
