The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation into allegations that a ring of pedophiles has been molesting underage actors in Hollywood for decades, Rolling Stone reports.
The move comes in response to claims by actor Corey Feldman, who has become increasingly vocal in recent weeks about his desire to expose Hollywood pedophiles.
Feldman announced this week that he had reported his allegations to LAPD.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, LAPD Det. Ross Nemeroff confirmed that the deparment has opened an investigation.
Feldman has also launched a $10 million fundraising campaign, in part to make a movie exposing child abuse in Hollywood, as we reported previously.
Meanwhile, Feldman, 46, has begun naming his alleged abusers. Feldman appeared last week on “The Dr. Oz Show,” where he reportedly named actor John Grissom as one of the men he accuses of sexually abusing him.
“Earlier, Feldman told Megyn Kelly on the ‘Today’ show that former talent manager Marty Weiss (now a convicted sex offender) was also one of his former abusers,” Newsweek reports. “Grissom worked with Feldman in 1988’s ‘License to Drive’ and 1989’s ‘Dream a Little Dream.'”
