(Newser) – Corey Feldman has said he wants to blow Hollywood open and expose the pedophilia that lies within, and he has also said he's been targeted for these allegations. Early Wednesday, a new development: a series of all-caps tweets from the actor showing him in what appears to be a medical facility, along with claims he was stabbed. "Im in the hospital! I was attacked 2nite!," he posted. He added that three men had approached his car, which only he and his security were riding in, and one man yanked the door open, stabbing Feldman with "something." TMZ notes he was stabbed in the stomach, though it's not clear if that's been confirmed. Feldman says he's now doing "OK."

The actor insists the alleged stabbing has something to do with his pedophilia accusations, tweeting: "I have had mounting threats on all SM platforms by this vile 'wolfpack' & this Im sure is a result of those negative actions! … How sick r these ppl?!?" He adds that the LAPD is looking into the incident as an attempted homicide, though Fox News reached out to the department for confirmation and hasn't heard back. Feldman also posted a link to his GoFundMe page for "security needs," which has raised nearly $30,000 since it was started in November. Page Six notes the LAPD stopped looking into Feldman's sex abuse claims in November due to statute of limitations roadblocks, while Fox notes Feldman was cleared of a sexual battery charge in February. (Feldman has started naming names in what he says is a Hollywood pedophilia ring.)
