Corey Feldman has publicly accused actor Jon Grissom of molesting him when he was a Hollywood child star in the 1980s on Thursday.
During an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Feldman named Grissom as one of his multiple alleged molesters, moments before calling law enforcement officials to report the allegations.
“That is him,” Feldman, who has alleged that he was the victim of a Hollywood pedophile ring, said as Dr. Oz held up a photo of Grissom on his phone. “That is the guy.”

“On his Myspace page and his Facebook page, he’s got pictures of me and Corey Haim,” Feldman said. “He still taunts it and flaunts it.” [Ed. note: Grissom’s social media pages contain nudity. Please view at your own discretion.]
Feldman called the Los Angeles Police Department with Dr. Oz and said, “So we understand, you’re willing to take a report about a crime that was committed, a sexual assault about 20 years ago-25 years ago.”
Dr. Oz revealed that they spoke to the LAPD and Feldman said: “I want to give them the names of everybody. And I told them that, I said ‘look I’m going to give you the names of everybody I have any knowledge of and I would like you to start putting the pressure on all of them.”
Feldman said he wanted to name Grissom in his 2013 memoir Coreyography, but his lawyers said he couldn’t do that.
“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 said he chose “Ron Crimson” for Grissom in the book.
The Goonies actor encouraged Grissom to turn himself into the police on Thursday.
“Now is your time,” Feldman said. “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.”
Feldman is looking to raise funds to create a documentary to expose the alleged pedophilia in Hollywood.
Feldman has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help raise $10 million (a “flexible” target) to make a movie about his life. He wants to make the movie without the help of a studio so he can avoid censorship, and says that he will use the donated money to ensure the film gets distributed to theatres for wide release. So far, the campaign has raised just over $184,897.
Global News has reached out to Grissom and his representative. As of this writing, we have received no response.
