What would you do if you couldn't attend your best friend's funeral? Corey Feldman, who's best friend and fellow actor, Corey Haim, died last week from an accidental overdose, has said that he's not attending the funeral, per the family's request.

In a recent statement to E! he explains, "In the days following my best friend Corey Haim's death, I have spent much time with his mother, Judy, who has always been like a mother to me. I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey's funeral, however, due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey's funeral on Tuesday a small private affair."

The two boys worked together in Lost Boys, License to Drive, and the A&E reality show The Two Coreys.

It seems sad that he can't give a final goodbye to his friend, but I think it's really great of him to respect the family's wishes like that. However, I'm curious as to what the "strong religious beliefs" are that are keeping him from attending. He was his BFF, surely he should have a right to be there.

What do you think the reasons are for Corey Feldman not being able to go to Corey Haim's funeral?
