Hollywood is bracing itself for its biggest scandal ever, as the industry heavyweight who allegedly raped child star Corey Haim is reportedly set to be revealed.
With RadarOnline describing the alleged perpetrator as ‘one of the most recognisable faces in the industry’, sources say Corey – who died of a drug overdose at age 38 in 2010 – was too afraid to publicly name his attacker because of his status.
‘Corey Haim didn’t name his abuser in public because he was — and still is — so powerful that he feared he would ruin his career,’ an insider tells the website.
Believed to be a household name, multiple sources have alleged the Hollywood ‘kingpin’ abused Corey as a young boy, both on and off set and at glamorous Hollywood parties.
‘The first time this man raped Corey was after he got him high on pot,’ said a source.
‘He fooled him. Corey was vulnerable, and he fell for this person. He believed, like so many victims, that he was "in love" with his abuser. He was so confused by the sexual encounter, and believed it was love.’
Now, with the abuser finally set to be named by one of Corey’s closest confidants, the seedy Hollywood underworld that enables this kind of behaviour is also set to be exposed.
‘The veil of secrecy that has protected these creeps will be shattered,’ says a source. ‘This individual should be quaking in his boots. Their life is about to come crashing down.’
