If anyone knows the depth of the lifelong friendship between Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, it is Feldman’s wife, Susie. The three not only starred together in the 2007 reality show “The Two Coreys” (based on the lives of the two former child stars as adults) but Haim lived with the couple during shooting.
RadarOnline.com sat down with Susie Feldman for an exclusive interview, where we played her the last known tape of Corey Haim’s voice, recorded as the voicemail message on his cell phone.
“Ya this is Corey, leave a message and I’ll call you back,” Haim says on the recording. A simple greeting, yet when Susie hears it, she collapses into tears.
“I haven’t heard his voice in so long,” she said tears streaming down her face. “We had so much fun together. We had our ups and downs, but to hear his voice, it has been so long. It’s really nice but really sad.”
On March 10, Haim died of what was likely an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. Four bottles of prescription medications, including Valium, Vicodin and anti-psychotics were found in his apartment. His mother Judy told authorities that her son had complained of flu-like symptoms but was alive when she made the 911 call. Haim was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, Calif., and later pronounced dead.
Susie, who has filed for divorce from Feldman after 8 years of marriage, says she saw Haim two weeks ago at Feldman’s house while picking up their 5-year-old son. That was the last time she spoke to him.
“He looked good, he looked like he had put on healthy weight,” she told RadarOnline.com. “I wasn’t there for that long but he made sure to come up to me and tell me, ‘you look good Suz.’ I was always ‘Suz’.”
Susie says Feldman is still “shell shocked” from Haim’s tragic death on March 10. He appeared on Larry King Live, where he called Haim his best friend and begged the public not to assume that Haim overdosed on drugs until the toxicology report comes back.
“Corey is taking it really hard right now,” Susie said. “He just lost Michael [Jackson] last year and now he’s lost his childhood friend. He is the only one who ever stood up for Corey [Haim]…through the ups and downs. Haim had his family but Hollywood gave up on him. My Corey was the only one had always been there for him.”
When news broke that Haim was dead, Susie said, “I was angry, you know? Angry that this friend, who was not even 40, had passed away, his potential not even setting in. I was angry and then the sadness set in.”
