Corey Haim was dating Daisy de la Hoya

Rock of Love and Daisy of Love star Daisy De la Hoya was dating ’80s film actor and The Two Coreys star Corey Haim prior to his death from an overdose yesterday, according to a report.

E!’s Marc Malkin cites “a source close to De la Hoya” who said, “Their first official date was two weeks ago, but they’d been hanging out a little while before that. Corey invited her to the Playboy Mansion. Corey Feldman came, too. … Daisy knew Corey was doing a lot of drugs–especially prescription meds. She thought he was kind and talented, and she wanted to rescue him. She became his confidant over the last few weeks. He told her a lot.”

Daisy has protected her Twitter account, but E! says she tweeted yesterday, “I’m sooooooo devastated right now. This is the worst day ever I can’t believe this.”
