Corey Haim Was

Former teen idol Corey Haim was "very broke, very destitute," when he passed away, says his longtime pal Corey Feldman.

Feldman appeared on Larry King Live on Wednesday night to talk about his friend's tragic death and admits that Haim was broke and living "month-to-month" at the Oakwood Apartments in Los Angeles.

Haim owed more than $200,000 in state and federal taxes and had miles of medical bills stacking up. He "didn't even have a car," added Feldman.

And while Feldman appreciates the outpouring support from fans and friends he couldn't help but wonder, "Where were all these people to lend a hand out, to reach out to him and say, you know, you're a legend ... you're an amazingly talented, wonderful person who's really never gone out of his way to hurt anybody other than himself."

He went on, in the entertainment industry, "we build people up as children, we put them on pedestals and then when we decide that they're not marketable anymore, we walk away from them," said Feldman. "And then we taunt them and we tease them ... Why is it OK to kick somebody when they're down?"
