Haim Funeral: City Not Paying, Feldman Not Going

It has been confirmed that the City of Toronto won’t be covering the bills for Corey Haim’s funeral. A statement was released on Monday saying, “While the city would normally not confirm or deny the existence of an application for assistance with funeral benefits - as this is a matter covered by privacy regulations - given the number of reports, the city has chosen to confirm it.”

Rumours began spreading that the City of Toronto will pay for his funeral costs after his mother, Judy Haim, announced it on Access Hollywood. But the city disputes it does not have the funds to cover the expenses. “While the City of Toronto is not involved in Mr. Haim’s funeral, the City of Toronto, like most municipalities, assists deceased Toronto residents that do not have adequate resources within their estate to pay or a basic funeral and burial.”

An employee from Steeles Memorial Chapel has verified that the funeral services will be held at the Thornhill chapel today, Tuesday, at 11 a.m.

Corey Feldman, a friend of Haim, has announced that he won’t be present at the funeral for privacy reasons and asks the public to do the same. “Understanding the recent media attention, I have decided not to attend,” he said. “As a sign of respect, I am asking the media to honour Corey Haim by making the same choice.”
