During the time of his departure, Corey Haim net worth amounted to million dollars. He ascended to stardom as a teen, starring in variety of successful films, including Murphy’s Romance and License to Drive. Yet, being a teen millionaire in Hollywood isn’t as simple as it may appear. Plus, the universe of stars is filled with temptations and dangers that most young men can not manage. Sadly, Corey wasn’t an inclusion. The performer began using alcohol and drugs in an extremely young age and this was a start of an ending for him. But let us take a closer look at his route to stardom and ultimate death.
Corey Haim Net Worth $5 Thousand Dollars
The next year a 14-year old starred in Silver Bullet (a horror movie which grossed more than $12 million dollars on a funding of $7 million) and Murphy’s Romance ( a love story comedy which grossed nearly $31 million on a funding of $13 million). Corey Haim net worth continued to grow as he got a leading part on Lucas, teen tragicomedy that was not only prosperous, but also received favorable critical reviews.
To get a short interval since 2004 it looked like the performer has managed to get his habit in check, although it was never simple. This conflict was described by the performer himself: “it is one day at a time. It is one second at a time-it is actually one millisecond at a time occasionally. But you gotta grind your teeth and carry it.” Sadly, never again Corey Haim net worth grew as quick as it did at the start of his career, because he began using drugs again.
But that is when Corey turned to the incorrect path in his private life. As the performer has afterwards acknowledged, while filming The Lost Boys the teen was already drinking and smoking marihuana. In among his interviews Corey has declared: I did cocaine for about annually along with a half, then it led to break. As most enthusiasts, Haim had not been in a position to keep his career afloat and his star began fading away.

He was in a relationship with actress Alyssa Milano from 1987 to 1990.
Haim was engaged to model Cindy Guyer in 2000. He proposed to Guyer two days after they met at a Chicago autograph show.
Was offered the role of Charlie Fox in The Mosquito Coast (1986) and Chris Chambers in Stand by Me (1986). His father, who was acting as his manager at the time, turned down both in favor of Corey having a starring role in Lucas (1986). Both of those roles eventually went to the late River Phoenix.
Back when he was a kid in Thornhill Ontario, Corey Haim used to break dance with the other kids at recess, in school.
Best friend Corey Feldman chose not to attend Haim's funeral at the request of Haim's family, because they wanted to keep the funeral as low-key as possible. Feldman instead issued an open letter on the Internet which he wrote to his deceased friend.
Was buried at Thornhill memorial chapel in Toronto on March 16th, 2010. Because Haim was broke at the time of his death, a celebrity memorabilia site that he sometimes sold items to, Startifacts, had donated $20,000 to cover the cost of the transportation and headstone. The check was subsequently canceled when it was found the funeral home was covering the cost already.
Auditioned for the role of Dick Grayson/Robin in Batman Forever (1995).

Bill Egert's character Sean Haim in the movie Detour (2002) was named after him, as Egert's favorite actor.
Was engaged to Nicole Eggert, whom he credits with helping save his life on a certain occasion: while they were filming one of several movies together, she noticed that Haim was suffering from a narcotic "rush." Eggert promptly drove him to the local hospital where Corey was detoxed.
Was asked by best friend and frequent co-star Corey Feldman - while filming the first season of The Surreal Life (2003) - to be his best man at his wedding to Susie Feldman; but unfortunately, due to prior commitments he was not able to attend.
Brooke McCarter managed him up to the mid 1990s until Corey's drug problem caused a fallout.
Was engaged to Holly Fields (not the boxer) in 1996, but broke up.
In 2004, he became the subject of a single by the Irish band The Thrills titled "Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?".
Filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July 1997 in Los Angeles, California, listing debts that included nearly $104,000 to the I.R.S., $100,000 in California taxes and a variety of medical expenses. The document stated that he had no bank account and very few assets, including a 1987 BMW, $100 in cash, $750 worth of clothing, and $7,500 in residuals and royalty rights. He also listed a $31,000 pension plan.
Parents Bernie and Judy divorced when Corey was 11 years old. They were married for 18 years.
[on battle with drug abuse] It's one day at a time. It's one second at a time-it's really one millisecond at a time sometimes. But you gotta grind your teeth and bear it. There's no way to get around it. It's just time, effort and support-and you gotta reach out and ask for help
[on his cameo in Crank: High Voltage (2009)] My first day of filming, I went in my camper for a minute, and I just started crying, because I was, like, home. And I'm just so grateful. It's a cameo. But, like, Ricky Schroder did a cameo in Crimson Tide (1995), and then boom! He got NYPD Blue.
[on effects of molestation] It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it's something that truly affects me, and I opened up a can of worms, so to speak. Every day I opened up, like, a can of sardines. It's something I've addressed. Psychiatrists can be helpful. They have the medications and blah-blah-blah. But I don't want any of that, man. I've dealt with this, and I'm dealing with this-second by second, minute by minute, day by day. Everything's cool. It's just like, It happened, it's over, and move on. Let's move on to the next subject.
This is where you make new friends and you start living and learning. So I'm a late bloomer, I'm 36, but hey, I'm learning. Every day's a learning experience, right?
I want to be the guy they talk about when they talk about comebacks. I want people to learn from me, see I'm human, and understand that I make mistakes just like they do, but it doesn't have to consume you. You've got to walk through the raindrops, and that's totally what I am trying to do.
I was working on The Lost Boys (1987) when I smoked my first joint. But a year before that, I was starting to drink beer on the set of the film Lucas (1986). I lived in Los Angeles in the '80s, which was not the best place to be. I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack. I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day - the doctors could not believe I was taking that much. And that was just the valium - I'm not talking about the other pills I went through.
