Feldman claimed that the LAPD was investigating his case as an “attempted homicide.” He emphasized, “I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL SM PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE 'WOLFPACK' & THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS! I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED!”
The LAPD is denying his account, pointing out that Feldman could not describe his alleged attacker or the weapons used. Officer Luis Garcia told Fox News, “Upon the investigation [it was] determined there were no lacerations to his abdomen.”
TMZ reports that Feldman feared he was stabbed by a syringe and went to the hospital to get it checked out. He told police that he strongly believed that he was being followed before being stabbed by a “long and sharp” object.
His hospitalization comes a month after he was cleared in an LAPD sexual battery investigation. At the time, his lawyer told People magazine, “After a comprehensive investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office rejected the filing of a criminal complaint against my client Corey Feldman. The City Attorney's office agreed with my assessment of the criminal case, and declined to file charges.”
