Haim was the star of "Lucas," "The Lost Boys" and "License to Drive," but saw his once-bright career eclipsed by years of substance abuse. He died last Wednesday in Burbank, Calif., at the age of 38. The cause of his death has not yet been determined.
Feldman, who appeared in seven movies and a reality series with Haim, released a statement Monday saying he would not attend the funeral out of respect for Haim's grieving family, who wanted to keep the service a small private affair.
On his blog Tuesday, Feldman wrote: "First off I am so sorry I am not there with you today. By that I mean my physical body is not with your physical body. However you know that my heart is right at your side. You also know the only reason I am truly not there is out of respect for your mother and her wishes to minimize the media attention as much as possible. I want your family to have a calm peaceful day. Hopefully we will not see one shot of the funeral on the news. Just know I am at home today projecting positive energy for you and your passing. I miss you so much already. When I think of something funny I don't know who to tell it to. I find myself trying to call you but then remember your not there. I think about the new movies we will soon be doing together and then suddenly realize that the dream is over. ...
"Nobody will ever understand the brotherhood we shared," Feldman added. "In a dark and lonely world with spiteful angry people we always understood each others pain. ... I never knew your death would have such a huge impact on the world. I learned something Corey, there are a lot of people out there who really love you, and appreciate the joy you have brought to their hearts. I only wish you could see the way the world is mourning over your absence."
