Other reports on Corey are saying casting producers of Celebrity Rehab called Corey, sources tied to the show told TMZ.

They also reportedly spoke to Corey's mom in October at an autograph convention and pitched Dr. Drew's show to her.

Corey was reportedly "extremely defensive and insulted, saying, 'It's the last show I'd ever do.'"

The Lost Boys star apparently ended the conversation after three minutes saying, "I do not need help."
