Corey Haim Found With Multiple Prescription Bottles

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad Sad


So unbelievably sad.

Details are already emerging about Corey Haim's tragic death this morning, and it appears the actor may have died of a prescription drug overdose.

Law enforcement is reporting that Haim collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's apartment around 1:30am this morning, and authorities recovered four prescription bottles at the scene.

Haim had recently been battling flu-like symptoms, but the above-mentioned meds were unrelated to that.

Haim's mother also confirmed her son had been battling an addiction to prescription drugs for years.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family.

    yikes, he looks like a lesbian in that picture.

    So unbelievably sad, what a waste of a young man's life. He had such incredible talent. Goes to show what Hollywood can do to kids that grow up in the limelight, it chews them up and spits them out for dead.

    This is so sad :(
    An 80's icon gone! I think a little piece of me died. Watching The Lost Boys or Dream A Little Dream will never be the same :(
    You had a good run Corey.

    Wow…another depressing death from someone in my age group. :( :(

    Re: welshboi :P – It just happened, dbag.

    I'm sorry, I feel nothing about his loss. The guy was a loser. Anyone who does drugs is a looser, regardless of the explanation. I feel deep sorrow for his family, but drugs have NO happy ending. THERE IS NOT A SINGLE PERSON IN THE WORLD THAT DOESN'T KNOW THAT. And once you acknowledge you're an addict, there are tons of ways to get help. He chose not to and suffered the consequences. I am not sad for him and as far as I'm concerned, this is a waste of reading effort. Loser!!!

  13. 13

    Another loser with no regard for life…

  14. 14

    I'm going to go home and watch my vhs copy of Prayer of the Rollerboys tonight…

  15. 15

    You took the words right out of my mouth Diggitydogg! Why are so many people dying these days? Guy from sparklehorse, guy from the Hark Rock Hotel in Vegas??? WTF man!

  16. 16

    Omg I find myself crying, I grew up watching his movies. (What 80s kid didn't? ) such a loss, he had his struggles and he was trying to get better, and in the end it wasn't enough. RIP Corey.

    Re: Alyc66 – Thats what I was thinking, Dream A Little Dream is my favorite movie of all time and I just watched The Lost Boys for like the millionth time about 4 days ago and I was gonna watch a bunch of Corey Haim moive tonight but it'll never be the same. RIP our little Lost Boy. Anyone who was a Corey Haim fan/Corey Feldman fan/The Two Coreys fan, saw this coming. We knew it was kinda a ticking time bomb but it seems to unreal to believe. I can't believe it true, we knew it was probally gonna happen but I couldn't actually picture it in the headlines and I couldn't even imagine what it would be like to find out. I didn't believe my mom until she showed me the article from the MSN homepage. The whole energy and feeling of the day has changed. It doesn't even seem real because I've been a fan of his for so long.

    Re: welshboi :P – Corey just died dummy. It's not old news yet.

  19. 19

    Re: SammiDe – He always does when it comes to a famous names death. Which is messed up!

  20. 20

    What happened to this comment you made Perez??

    "Washed up actor Corey Haim……

    From hasbeen to desperate hasbeen!"

    You are pathetic for even acting like you give a $hit about his death. Shamless pig.

  21. 21

    So sorry to hear this. I used to have a crush on him when I was 13 years old, thought he was the cutest guy on the screen. I heard about his addiction years ago, but hoped he would get better. RIP Corey, you warmed my teenage heart.

  22. 22

    battling with prescription drugs in no joke. Personally I am on the road to recovery and it's no joke. Without help you'll no doubt end up like Mr Haim or Miss B Murphy. It's extremely sad.

    Re: Alliestp

    Oh Fuck You Man! Show some respect. Just because someone gets 'addicted' to something doesn't mean they are bad people.

    They are sick, and addiction sucks. Many people 'now' play by the rules and go to doctors for help and are prescribed pills. More so nowadays then ever before. Its just a business and its fucked up.

    Many people Overdose in America from Prescription pills by accident or by addiction but you will never hear about it, they are not famous. They will just be data.

    But it doesn't make them a bad person, stuff like that just happens and beating out the odds for addiction is very rare.

    So show some fucking respect, and take down your bullshit DARE Posters in your room.

    How sad! Do ya think Corey Feldman's wife will allow him to attend the funeral!

  25. 25

    THAT'S SO SAD his mother lives in an apartment.

  26. 26

    I thought that was a lesbian….oops!

  27. 27

    So sad. I don't understand why people just waste their lives like that

  28. 28

    Re: DebDebs – They are getting divorced, so Corey better attended.

  29. 29

    So Sad. I hope he's resting peacefully now.

    Re: Starlit – yeah I am starting to learn that! Ive just come back from taking a year off from his blog HA! And WOW it really does seem like it is ALL DOWNHILL ANYMORE! Everything is DAYS LATE OR MONTHS LATE like the Dec. post of the guy dying on video! I mean good lord, he needs to learn some manners and take journalist classes if he wants to REPORT SHIT LIKE THIS! :(

  31. 31

    sorry, but I seem to get him mixed up with someone else, I thought, he'd been dead for a while already…

  32. 32

    How suprising another death in Hollywood from perscription drugs…everyone sees it comin and does nothing…I too am a product from the 80's and sees it still comin with others…Judd Nelson on the oscars the other night looked like death warmed over…and todays stars like Mischa Barton whose on the path…I mean we see it we all know it and it continues…until Hollywood steps up and demands changes with the way hiring and promoting is done…and the agents too dont forget…but thats just not going to happen

  33. 33

    I wouldn't believe anything on this site, considering your past record.

    Re: Alliestp – You've never smoked weed. Nothing bad ever comes from it, it is a miracle drug!

  36. 36

    Suffering from "flu-like" symptoms, eh? Sounds like he was starting to detox, then started using again — or something like that. Flu-like symptoms are textbook typical of someone who's run out of drugs or someone trying to quit.

  37. 37

    Yet again.

  38. 38

    How is everyone gettng addicted to prescription drugs? I must not know what goes on in the "real" world, outside of my own… I dont get how normal, everyday follks are getting thier hands on vicoden, etc, enough to have an addition? What the heck do they tell thier dr?

  39. 39

    Oh, WAH. Another spoiled brat ODs. It's not like he died doing something heroic, or from a unpreventable disease, or in a tragic accident.

    He did this all to himself, and if you want to say that it was the "hard lifestyle" of transitioning from a child actor in the spotlight to an adult in Hollywood, take a look at people with REAL problems and tell me why they don't all OD.

    Stop coddling the selfish and focus on helping the ones who are truly in need.

    Re: welshboi :P – Yes dumbass….details from his death THIS MORNING emerged days ago…. how about before you jump on here and try to type so fast to be #1 you stop for a second to use your head and think about what the fuck you just said as opposed to what happened THIS morning..
