The subject of sexual abuse is nowadays not only a danger lurking around women, but its grips have also affected male victims, and in the world of show business the tendency of this horrible act is becoming very unpleasant. This leads us to the case of former child actor Corey Feldman and actor John Grissom, who not only molested young Corey but also lured him to use drugs while the two worked together in the 1980s. This happened at a time when Corey was supposedly at the peak of his career and had lost almost everything due to his addictions.
Learn all the details of the story as you read on.
Who Is John Grissom?
John Grissom may not be a popular actor, but he has made headlines, not for any awards, but for his criminal deeds. The former actor is said to have been born on May 31, 1962, in Alaska, in the United States, under the full name of Cloyd John Grissom, but he became popularly known as Jon Grissom. Only two films have been attributed to him, the 1988 film Licence to Drive and the 1989 film Dream a Little Dream.

Grissom is said to have had a criminal record since 2001. His criminal record shows how he was arrested for child abuse and how he was found guilty in 2003 and served time for it. The notorious actor was also found guilty of violating “Megan’s Law” by not reporting to the authorities as a sex offender.
His Alleged Abuse And Relationship With Corey Feldman
Corey Feldman is a child actor who is said to have started his career early. During this time he also met Corey Hiam, and the couple became known as “The Two Cores” when they acted together in the 1987 film The Lost Boys and its sequels Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) and Lost Boys: The Thirst (2010). The two Coreys also appeared in the films License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream, which brings us to the connection with John Grissom.
In November 2017, during the show Dr. OZ, Corey Feldman made a shocking revelation that John Grissom, his co-star in License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream with him, abused him during their collaboration. Feldman was visibly shaken by the memory of the incident and was supported by his wife Courtney Anne Mitchell. He also revealed that he was not the only one who had to go through the trauma, but that his friend Corey Hiam – who died in 2010 – was also abused by older men in Hollywood. Feldman also said he found it insulting that John Grissom, in light of the horrible acts he had been subjected to, is making their photos publicly available together on his social media sites.
Prior to the revelation, Felman had used the names Tony Burnham and Ron Crimson in his book “Coreyography” to identify Hiam’s abuser and his. Feldman explained in the book how he was haunted by Crimson, and it was because of Crimson that he began using drugs, giving him various compositions of drugs that eventually intoxicated him and left him at the mercy of the predator. However, John Grissom, who had been attacked by the public for his unruly act, denied this on YouTube and let his frustration run free that he was tired of explaining to Corey Feldman that he had not done such things to Corey Feldman and that he would not repeat himself in this sense, regardless of what people thought of him.

Following the revelation of what John Grissom did to him at the height of his career in the 1980s, Corey Feldman has also pledged to reveal all the names of pedophiles in Hollywood and, in light of what he has collected so far, has set aside a ton of $10 million for the release of the film dealing with this issue.
However, not everyone seems to believe that he could actually make his claims, as Hiam’s mother announced to the Hollywood Reporter that Corey Feldman was a “con man” who was not serious about his claims.
