The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that they are investigating claims, made by child actor Corey Feldman concerning an alleged paedophile ring in Hollywood.

LAPD detective Ross Nemeroff confirmed, to the Hollywood Reporter, that an investigation was launched by the department, following a report filed by Feldman on Monday.

“When a report is filed on something as severe as this, an investigation is opened by the robbery/homicide division, which also handles sex crimes,” he said.

Feldman, who announced on Twitter that he filed a report to the LAPD, has long alleged that a systemic culture of underage abuse exists in Hollywood. In his 2013 autobiography ‘Coreyography’, the Feldman claimed that both he and late actor Corey Haim were molested as children, and blamed Haim’s abuse for his death in 2010 at the age of 38.

Just last month, Feldman announced that he was seeking funding for a film, which he said would expose alleged offenders.

“Right off the bat, I can name six names, one of them who is still very powerful today,” he said, but added that he was unable to divulge the identity of the individuals involved due to potential legal repercussions and fears over his family’s safety.

On Wednesday, actor Charlie Sheen denied allegations that he had sexually assaulted Haim on the set of the 1986 film Lucas, when Haim was 13 and Sheen was 19. The claims, which were published in the National Enquirer, were made by actor Dominick Brascia, a friend of Haim’s, who said that Haim had told him about the incident.

“Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations,” a spokesperson for the actor said.

Rumours of organised child abuse in Hollywood have intensified in recent weeks following both Feldman’s allegations and the re-emergence of the 2014 documentary, ‘An Open Secret’.
