Former 1980s teen star Corey Feldman said he and friend Corey Haim were sexually abused and used drugs during their time in Hollywood, but found normalcy with late entertainer Michael Jackson.

Feldman made the allegations in his new book "Coreyography," where he talked about working in "Gremlins" (1984), first meeting Haim while filming "The Lost Boys" (1987), along with his performances in movies like "Stand By Me" (1986) and "The Goonies" (1985).

Feldman alleged in the book, according to the New York Post, that he was abused by his mother, Sheila, a former Playboy model, and was viewed by her and his father as their "meal ticket."

Feldman described one incident where his mother screamed and beat him after losing one acting job.

"'How could you f—ing do this to me?' she screams. She is out of control, wild-eyed, like an animal," Feldman said of his mother during the incident, according to the Post. "Her face is bright red and blotchy, her cheeks are streaked with mascara. 'You know I need this f—ing money. I will kill you.'"

He wrote when he and Haim first met during the filming of "The Lost Boys," they became fast friends but quickly found out that they had both been sexually abused, according to the Post. Feldman said he and Haim spent their teen years partying together and living with their molesters.

Haim died in 2010 of pneumonia.

Feldman said in the book that he was thankful for his friendship with Jackson, who provided a safe haven for him, wrote the New York Post. Jackson himself had been accused of sexually abusing children in the 1990s and was found not guilty of child abuse during a 2005 trial.

"I was shattered, disgusted, devastated. I needed some normalcy in my life. So, I called Michael Jackson," Feldman wrote in his book, stressing Jackson never abused him, said the New York Post. "Michael Jackson’s world, crazy as it sounds, had become my happy place. Being with Michael brought me back to my innocence. When I was with Michael, it was like being 10 years old again."
