Corey Haim & Corey Feldman: The Two Coreys: Friends & Enablers (PHOTOS)

Lifelong friend and frequent costar Corey Feldman has issued this statement about the death of his "brother":

"I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived."

From OK! magazine:

In the late 1980s, it was hard to turn on the TV or go to the movies without seeing Corey Haim and Corey Feldman starring together. From License to Drive, to The Lost Boys, to their 2007 A&E reality show, The Two Coreys, the actors have been inextricably linked in the memories of fans everywhere. Here, OK! takes a look back at the close, albeit somewhat rocky at times, friendship of Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
