Corey Feldman has accused Alphie Hoffman of molesting him and Corey Haim during the 1980s.

The man who Feldman calls Alphie Hoffman has a number of names including Alphy Chris Hoffman, aka Alphy Rivas, aka Chris Alphy Hoffman, aka AC Hoffman, aka Alfie Hoffman, aka Chris Hoffman, aka Christopher Hoffman, aka Albert C Hoffman, aka Alpy Hoffman, aka Laphy C Hoffman, aka Alphy C Huffman. He may also use the alias Joshua and he has worked under the name BH Casting. The Hollywood Sentinal also says that he lives in hollywood. He will be referred to here as Alphie.

Here’s what Corey Feldman has claimed about Alphie Hoffman or Alphy Rivas:


1. Alphie Hoffman aka Rivas Took Corey Feldman to Parties at His Club

Alfie owned a nightclub called Alphie’s Soda Pop Club for underage child actors, which was a place that Feldman and Haim frequented together. Feldman claims that it was a place with little adult supervision, frequented by a group of men that Feldman claims make up what he says is a powerful group of “Hollywood pedophiles.”

The Hollywood Sentinal says that it is unknown when Alphie was born, where he went to high school or if he went to college. He did not marry but the site reports that he has a daughter named Jordan Aleris Wall. He has also worked as a director. Feldman claimed that Bob Hoffman was his father as that was what people assumed at the time.

Feldman alleged that he first met Alphie when he was 12 years old. The club owner came to Feldman’s house to pick him up and took him to a party at the venue. Feldman and Corey Haim frequented Alphy’s Soda Pop Club, along with actor Jon Grissom, Feldman’s assistant, in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.


2. Corey Feldman Said the Club Frequently Hosted Adult Men

Attending these parties with Hoffman became a regular part of Feldman’s social life as a teenager. Feldman claimed that these parties were minimally supervised by parents or guardians of the club’s underaged guests.

Feldman claims that a group of adult men would frequent the underage club to party with the child actors, reported the Daily Mail.

Newsweek reported that, as the Haim and Feldman were not of legal age to drink or go to nightclubs with their older co-stars, Haim and Feldman would typically end up spending their free time together while they weren’t working.


3. Corey Feldman Claimed His Assistant Abused Him at Alphie’s Soda Pop Club

The underage club hosted Drew Barrymore, Ricky Schroder and Alyssa Milano, and it was in operation from 1986 to 1989. Alphie’s Soda Pop Club was the site where Feldman claims much of the alleged abuse took place, reported Fox News.

The sponsor of the club was named Randy Miller. Miller was the co-owner of New York Seltzer. At a party hosted by Feldman and Haim, Miller jumped off the 11th floor of the Los Angeles Mondrian Hotel holding a bottle of the now defunct soda brand. There was video recorded of the event which was made into a commercial for the brand.

In 2017, Feldman appeared on Dr. Oz and claimed that one of his abusers was Jon Grissom. Grissom was Feldman’s assistant during the 1980s and attended the club, and knew Hoffman. He said that both Grissom and Hoffman abused him during this time.

Feldman claimed, “There [were] a bunch of these guys, they were all hanging out together at these parties … One night … I passed out while I was watching [a] movie, and when I woke up, there was a porn on … I remember I could barely walk. I don’t know what I was given at that time, but I know that I was really out of it.”


4. Corey Feldman Says His Alleged Abuse Was a Known Secret

In a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman said, “I know every single person that interfered with [Haim’s] life and he knew every person that interfered with mine… All these men were all friends.” He said that a lot of these men were involved with Hoffman.

In a 2011 Fox interview, Alison Arngrim, who played Nellie Oleson on NBC’s Little House on the Prairie, alleged that the abuse was not only well known, but something of a topic of casual conversation.

Arngrim told Fox, “It was the gossip back in the 80s. People said, ‘Oh, yeah, the Coreys, everyone’s had them.’ People talked about it like it was not a big deal … I literally heard that they were ‘passed around.’”


5. Alphie Hoffman Is One Name Discussed In (My) Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys

In (My) Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, Feldman claims Hoffman, along with five other people, were involved in a “pedophile ring” that operates in Hollywood. His documentary is the follow up to his autobiography. Where he could not specifically name his abusers in Coreyography, he was hoping to do so tonight. But as of 11 p.m. Eastern, when the live stream was supposed to begin, viewers could not gain access.

In the interim, while waiting to gain access to the documentary, a number of articles have surfaced about Alphie, the abuse allegations and what the Los Angels district attorney said they were going to do to try to stop what the allegations suggest.

Regarding the allegations of abuse, it was reported that the LADP (via The Hollywood Sentinal) that the claim, according to the state law, was “out of statute” and that detectives do not have any other leads to further the case.

The Daily Mercury reported that a task force has been announced by the Los Angeles District Attorney. It is to investigate claims of sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.

ShowBiz Cheetsheet reported that Feldman was 14 years old at the time of Hoffman’s alleged abuse.
