Feldman Not Attending Haim’s FuneralBy WENN

COREY FELDMAN will not be among mourners attending the funeral of his best friend and movie co-star COREY HAIM, who died of a suspected drug overdose in Los Angeles last week (10Mar10).
The Lost Boys star was found unconscious at his mother’s home in Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning (10Mar10) and was pronounced dead upon arrival at St Joseph’s hospital in Burbank, California.
Childhood pal Feldman has revealed he woke up to the sad news and spent the morning sobbing about the tragedy, but, despite his grief, the Goonies actor has announced he will stay away from the star’s burial service in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday (16Mar10) - out of respect for Haim’s family.
Feldman explains, “In the days following my best friend Corey Haim’s death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me. I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey’s funeral, however, due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey’s funeral on Tuesday a small private affair.”
Reports suggest that both a memorabilia auction house and the city of Toronto will be paying for the funeral.
