Corey Feldman has finally named an alleged sexual assault perpetrator

And so it begins.

Former child actor Corey Feldman released the first identity of one of six alleged abusers. Feldman, probably most famous for his roles in hit movies The Lost Boys, Goonies and Stand by Me had been one of few who’ve tried to expose Hollywood’s sick “open secret.”

The doors blew off the scandal after allegations against disgraced movie director Harvey Weinstein began to surface. The entertainment industry was rocked as hundreds of accusations began to target Hollywood power players.

But Feldman’s been sending warning signals all along.  Afraid of legal, social and even physical repercussions, the former child actor had never named names… until now.

Feldman dropped the bombshell that former actor Jon Grissom assaulted him when he was a child on Thursday’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show.

It was long suspected that Grissom was one of Feldman’s alleged abusers. Feldman wrote a Hollywood memoir titled Coreyography where he unearthed a seedy underbelly of widespread Hollywood pedophilia.

In Coreyography, Feldman identified a child molester as “Ron Crimson” and came clean about the character.

“That is him,” Feldman said as Oz held up a photo of the former actor. “That’s the guy.”

“This guy, on his Myspace page and his Facebook page has pictures of me and Corey Haim,” Feldman said. “He still taunts it and flaunts it.”

“We had to change the names legally,” Feldman told Oz. “The lawyers made me change the names. … They gave me a list of three or four, you know, names. I picked the one that sounded closest to his name.”

Feldman has long been shunned by Hollywood and its media cohorts. Barbara Walters was pounded for a resurfaced video of Feldman discussing Hollywood’s dirty secret on The View. Walters accused Feldman of “damaging an entire industry.”

Feldman vowed to Oz that he’ll be releasing more names.
