Corey Feldman last week promised to expose pedophilia in Hollywood, and he's just named a man he accuses of being one of his own molesters. Feldman went on the Dr. Oz Show Thursday and called out former actor Jon Grissom, reports E! Online. (The first name is often spelled "John.") Feldman says Grissom molested him when Feldman was about 13 or 14, per USA Today. Grissom appeared in two movies with Feldman, License to Drive in 1988 and Dream a Little Dream in 1989, reports Rolling Stone. Grissom himself was not on the show, but Fox News quotes him as writing in a YouTube comment (though when is unclear): "I said its (sic) not me I'm sick and tired of saying that when no one listens."

As E! notes, Feldman named one of his molesters in a 2013 memoir as "Ron Crimson," and he now says that Crimson is actually Grissom. Lawyers made him change the name, he told Dr. Oz. "This guy, on his Myspace page and his Facebook page has pictures of me and Corey Haim," says Feldman, referring to the late fellow actor, also a child star. "He still taunts it and flaunts it." During the show, Feldman called the LAPD with his accusations, though a department spokesperson tells USA Today that no report has yet been filed on the matter. Dr. Oz says Feldman named other men off the air. (More Corey Feldman stories.)
