TV drug counsellor DR. Drew Pinsky has confirmed reports producers reached out to actor Corey Haim to be a part of his CELEBRITY REHAB show in the weeks before the tragic star overdosed.
The 38 year old Lost Boys star was pronounced dead at a Burbank, California hospital on Wednesday morning (10Mar10) after his mother found the actor unresponsive at her home in Los Angeles, California.
Haim had been nursing his mum through a cancer battle.
And now Dr. Drew Pinsky has opened up about attempts to persuade Haim to get help for his drug problems.
Pinsky tells In Touch magazine, "Our producers reached out recently to him but he was angry."
The TV doctor admits he had been made well aware of Haim's issues by concerned friends and fans: "People have been reaching out to me about him for years. His name has come up on every season of Celebrity Rehab.
"Even people on Twitter were contacting me asking me to do something for poor Corey Haim. Well I would have been happy to."
