A former employee at the Blockbuster branch in Cheshunt got in touch to tell us of the time in the early 90s that a young woman came in asking for a Corey Haim film.
It struck him as quite a weird request, as Haim was already pretty washed up by then, but the girl went on to explain that it was for Corey Haim himself. She told him Haim was parked outside in her dad’s car, but he was too scared to come in and rent his own film in case he got recognised.
Thinking this was a load of old rubbish, he nevertheless offered her the choice of Lost Boys, Lucas and Licence To Drive. She picked Licence To Drive and left.
A few years later, he noticed in the tabloids there was a kiss’n’tell story about Corey Haim and a famous celeb that Haim had met at a London recording studio. The weird customer. Victoria Adams.
Or as she’s better known now, Victoria Beckham.
