Haim and his best friend of many years, Corey Feldman, like many Hollywood stars, became drug users, developing a costly habit and emotionally devastating addiction.

As someone who was a kid in the 80's, it's really sad to see Haim go in this manner. I often think kids are better off not getting into Hollywood, as it comes with a terrible lifestyle and has destroyed many. It's a cesspool of addiction and dysfunction. My condolences to his family.
