Actor Corey Feldman received a standing ovation at the Michael Jackson memorial gala in Beverly Hills on Saturday (26Jun10) as he stepped on stage to forgive the late King of Pop for the incident that ended their friendship.
The Lost Boys star joined comedian Eddie Griffin, actor Mickey Rooney and members of the Jackson family at the Beverly Hilton hotel event, held a day after the first anniversary of the Thriller star's death, and he was in a forgiving mood.
Feldman told attendees that he and Jackson hadn't spoken for the last eight years of the pop star's life and now the actor deeply regrets not taking his phone calls as he attempted to "reach out" and mend their broken friendship.
He said, "Michael and I were friends, really close friends for about 18 years... (but) it was eight years before he passed away that we didn't speak; we had a bit of a falling out and, when we had that falling out, I held a grudge... and eight years passed and suddenly he was gone.
"Michael made efforts to reach out to me during that period of time... I did not. I was holding firm.
"But, what I learned is that forgiveness is the most important thing in this world. I can never ever let go of the fact that I didn't get the chance to say goodbye, or give Michael a hug or tell him again that I loved him, so I'm taking that opportunity right now, to say, 'Michael, I forgive you, I hope you forgive me and I love you.'"

Corey is freerider. First he insulted him by inventing things and placing them out of the context. He did not have a strength to place him above populism and blindness. So he stept out. Now he again falls in the same mediocrity behaviour traps - trying to present himself bigger than he is."MJ tried to reach me"...what a liar. I am so happy that MJ went in seclusion avoiding mices such as Corey one.

Corey I really hope deep inside you do feel bad. It is a hard lesson to learn. I was not speaking to my son who died at the age of 21. His Dad whom I am divorced from would not let him see or call me. So it was about 6 months since we spoke. That was 10 years ago. My Mother (whom we never got along) died and I had spoken to her in 3 months and she died of lung cancer and I knew she was in remision. That was 10 years ago as well. To this day I cry a lot because I missed that closer I never had. But to my defense they never tried to call me.. So if Michael called you please remember life is short and you never know when someone close to you will leave this world.

What-ever was between you and MICHAEL is over, it is the past........... it can not be rekindled......... you feel bad......... at least, you are big enough to admit it publicly on line for the whole world to see...........MICHAEL has forgiven you, as he was a kind , kind wonderful sweet man.......... and it must have broken his heart not to have you and him back as friends..........but, it is over, MICHAEL JACKSON IS GONE............... and that is something you and you alone will have to live with, until you can see MICHAEL JACKSON AGAIN IN HEAVEN...........

That's funny Corey Feldman says I forgive you Michael for our spat that ending our friendship. Than he goes to say Michael had mde numberous attempts to talk to him but he wouldn't return his calls. And he forgives Michael now that is a bunch of crap. Corey is a selvish person who now he wants to forgive Michael. Michael tried for 8 yr to mend their friendship according to Corey but he wouldn't accept it than. Now that it is over one since he passed he makes this statement. It should of read something like this "michael please forgive me for not accepting my part in our friendship ending as you had forgiven me" Michael must of realize he was wrong and wanted corey back in his life as a friend, but corey didn't forgive michael nor wanted to mend there 18yr friendship and now its to late. Michael didn't need friends like Corey who turned there backs on him when he needed them. Hell corey should of continued there friendship no matter what the spat was over. It called Forgiveness.
