Mom: Autopsy Finds Corey Haim Suffered Pulmonary Congestion
"Every time he would go to a doctor they'd tell him he had really bad arrhythmia, probably due to clogged arteries," she says. "They all said he should have it taken care of. But, being from Canada, his insurance was there, so he never went and got it done."
Shepis, who was engaged to Haim briefly between 2008 and 2009, says he also struggled with addiction. "His problem was with prescription drugs – painkillers and Valium," she says. "His addictions are common knowledge. And the longer [you] are addicted to something, the harder it is for you to quit. And that's what he was facing."
