Former child star Corey Feldman has spoken frequently about being molested when he was a child, but has been reluctant to name names.
The "The Dr. Oz Show" Thursday and revealed that one of the men he alleges abused him was a man named Jon Grissom, who was his assistant in the '80s. During the show, Feldman, who's now 45, called the LAPD to report the crime. He had previously reported the alleged abuse to the Santa Barbara police, but, as mentioned during the show, did not name his abuser.
Grissom, who still has photos of himself with Feldman on his MySpace page, has two acting credits listed on IMDb, both films with Feldman: "License to Drive" and "Dream a Little Dream."Feldman told Oz that he wanted to name Grissom in his 2013 memoir "Coreyography," but his lawyers wouldn't let him. "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." He chose the name "Ron Crimson."
He appeared to confirm Grissom was "Ron Crimson" earlier this year when someone connected the dots on Twitter.
According to PerezHilton, Grissom is a convicted child molester. He was arrested for performing lewd acts on a child aged 14 or 15 years old in 2001 and saved jail time in 2003. Grissom now apparently lives in Mexico.
Feldman urged his abusers to come forward and turn themselves in and they would be "dealt with in a much more tolerant way," adding, "however if you do not, we're coming for you."
He previously identified former child talent manager and convicted sex offender Marty Weiss as someone who abused both him and fellow child star Corey Haim.
Feldman has been raising money via IndieGoGo for a documentary that will reveal more alleged abusers. He is seeking $10 million, which he told Matt Lauer, is necessary to make the film and cover legal expenses and security for him and his family. So far, the project has raised $192,000.
