Imagine if you were one of Corey Feldman’s “Angels” but decided to quit mere days before his already legendarily terrible Today Show appearance. Perhaps as you get dressed you look wistfully at the angel wings you hung up the night before, and then daintily go downstairs to make yourself a rejuvenating cup of dandelion root tea.
Just as you’re starting to feel centered and detoxified, you make the mistake of checking your voicemails and realize that Corey has had another one of his bratty Bipolar II breakdowns, and left a stream of inchoate abuse on your phone.

That’s more or less the predicament guitarist Krystal Khali found herself in after ultimately opting out of Corey Feldman’s show, only to be told later that she’d “never get another [bleeping] gig in LA.”
“I kind of knew it was gonna be a [bleep] show and an embarrassment,” she tells Page Six, adding that Feldman’s dancing “was distracting… I couldn’t look at him.”
Working conditions weren’t all that great, either. Though Khali lives in Las Vegas, Feldman didn’t offer to pay for her ticket, expecting she’d be willing to do it for the glory. She used a roomate’s air miles instead.
Feldman offered to pay for meals, but he “only eats once a day.” At the very least, he paid for her ticket to New York for the taping.

Though an organizer for the event offered her a room, Feldman absolutely insisted that she shack up with him and his “maingel,” a certain DJ Courtey Anne Mitchell — just in case they were abruptly bit by the inspiration bug and “needed to rehearse.”
“I got the impression that Corey was wanting to lead it into a sexual direction,” Khali said, but “he didn’t say anything outright. No one was disrobing.”
When Feldman found out Khali quit, he likely donned his most intimidating snakeskin cloak before going characteristically bananas on her voicemail:
No human being on this earth would be selfish enough and egotistical enough and [bleeped] up in the head enough to [bleep] friends over like this at the last minute. You know I spent real money, and you know that I am struggling, and you know how hard it’s been to get to this point, and no person would do this .?.?. unless you are a soulless, careless, inhumane [bleeping] piece of [bleep]. So I really hope for all [bleeping] practical purposes that this is an elaborate [bleeping] joke.”
“If I don’t [bleeping] hear from you, your name is [bleeping] mud. Let me tell you, don’t even think about coming back to LA because you’ll never get another [bleeping] gig in that town. Ever. I will [bleeping] make sure everybody knows what a piece of [bleep] you are.”
You can listen to the voicemail here. Producers, load up those software samplers:
Just give it up! This is not the Angel you are looking for. In fact, this is not the performance anyone is looking for.
Peter Pan Syndrome is a disorder in which a man is unable to grow into maturity. They may grow physically as an adult but choose to hang on to their childhood in avoidance of assuming responsibility like a mature person. They are men who stay as boys inside.
Let me understand this. He says these horrible things and threatens her and believes that is fine.
When people hate his stupid song and express how weird and awful his song and performance was, then he is really hurt?
@markgtx11 Let’s not forget delusions of grandeur. He believes he has enough influence or credibility in L.A. to get someone blackballed? Whatever.
@jheryn: Yeah, it’s pretty dumb. On Facebook he brands anyone who criticizes him as a “hater”. Typical no-talent “American Idol” audition logic. LOL https://www.facebook.com/corey.feldman2?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf
Is Corey gay? Why is this on a gay website?
Miss Thang has no talent and never had any. What he calls child abuse was more likely a miscalculated career move cuz he ain’t never been pretty either.
@ingyaom: I wonder the same thing.
Good question. Corey Feldman has been married twice and has one son.
Why is this news and why does Queerty take such glee in their efforts to repeatedly humilate this man?
I think she deserved the reproach. No matter how bad the show was, she would have known earlier and she could have dropped out of the show while Corey still had time to find a replacement. Leaving just before the performance was unprofessional and irresponsible.
Why didn’t she and others around him plead with him to not do it if she knew it was going to be embarrassing? I agree she was unprofessional by dropping out at the last minute but the lack of meals, lack of plane ticket, etc., she knew in advance and shouldn’t use these in her defense. That he was probably hoping for a threesome is gross but again irrelevant to her defense
@ingyaom: He’s not gay, but he’s certainly a drama queen.
