Corey Haim tragically passed away last week after an alleged accidental overdose. He had a long history of substance abuse and according to close friends, he was abusing right up until his death.
Corey reportedly begged a friend for drugs shortly before he passed away on March 10th. A source close to the former teen idol tells Radaronline, “Corey was in a bad way and he was begging me to give him pain medication shortly before his death."
The source continued, “But although I’ve read stories about a gang giving him prescription drugs he never spoke about that. I know he was taking a lot of Valium, he was very upset about his mom’s cancer as he was really close to her, and I guess it was his way of dealing with the stress.
But according to his friend, he had hopes of getting clean. “Corey had recently started working with a new detox guy, and was in a pretty fragile state. Corey would get desperate sometimes though and would just nag his friends for drugs.”
Corey was laid to rest in his native Toronto today, with just close friends and family members present. Rest in peace Corey!
