Corey Feldman has outed the first child molester who molested him as a child in the 30-square mile cesspool we know as Hollywood. He says there are many more names to come.
Corey Feldman publicly accused actor Jon Grissom on Thursday of molesting him when Feldman was a Hollywood child star in the 1980s, according to Huffington Post.
The “Goonies” actor named Grissom as one of his multiple alleged molesters during an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show,” just moments before calling law enforcement officials to report the allegations.
“That is him,” Feldman said as host Mehmet Oz held up a photo of Grissom on his phone. “That is the guy.”

Feldman, who has alleged for years that he was the victim of a Hollywood pedophile ring, said he wanted to name Grissom in his 2013 memoir Coreyography, but his lawyers said no. He said “Ron Crimson” was the name he chose for Grissom in the book.
“We had to change the names legally,” Feldman said. “The lawyers made me change the names. … They gave me a list of three or four, you know, names. I picked the one that sounded closest to his name.”
Feldman has publicly identified former child talent manager and convicted sex offender Marty Weiss as one of his former abusers. He said Monday during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show that he would be “happy” to name five other alleged abusers once he gets legal representation.
The “Stand By Me” actor encouraged Grissom on Thursday to turn himself in to police.
“Now is your time,” Feldman said Thursday. “Be a man for the first time and come forward yourself. … Let it be known and you will be dealt with in a much more tolerant way, I’m sure. However, if you do not, we are coming for you.”
Grissom appeared in the 1980s movies “License to Drive” and “Dream a Little Dream,” which both starred Feldman. Grissom did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment.
Feldman appeared to hint at Grissom’s identity on Twitter in March.
hmmm can't confirm or deny, but that sure sounds familiar….
