The average individuals are not the only people that need to bother with problem children. It is the celebrities who have a bigger problem in their hands. The problem children of celebrities have taken their misbehavior to a new level because of the nontraditional childhoods they have had.
The problem children of celebrities were always surrounded by money, power, and fame and therefore, had nothing to complain about. They were famous individuals and did not have bothered about any boundaries when growing up. Despite their luxurious upbringing, they could prove to the world that their wealth and fame were not sufficient to purchase the good sense for them. They got into trouble with the law enforcement agencies and also brought ignominy to their parents. Here are a few problem children of celebrities who became famous simply because they tried their best to become infamous.
~ If you mess up your children, nothing else you do really matters. ~ Jackie Kennedy
The son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson always struggled with drug addiction. He was in trouble in 2015 when he rear-ended a driver in California. Tom and Rita were mentioned as codefendants in the lawsuit of the driver against Chet. The driver had claimed that he had suffered physical and emotional injuries because of the crash while also mentioning that Tom and Wilson were a party after the claim because they had information about Chet’s struggle with his addictions. The driver had made allegations that Chet was under the influence of alcohol and drugs when the accident occurred.
Weston Cage is the son of Hollywood star Nicholas Cage and was born on December 26, 1990. Weston was apprehended in 2011 for domestic violence and has also spent time in rehab for drug abuse. This was another case for the program children of celebrities.
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. has a history of drug abuse and alcoholism himself and therefore, his son Indio Downey getting busted for cocaine possession and charged with a felony count of possessing a controlled substance in 2014 cannot be termed as an isolated incident. Indio was perhaps following the footsteps of Robert Downey Jr. when he proved he too could be a problem child of a celebrity. The 20-year-old was, however, committed to rehab later by his father.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, was suspected of using cocaine in a video which surfaced in 2012. Whitney was a grown-up that had achieved tremendous fame before the video surfaced, and no reference to her parents was made about her being a problem child. Whitney was found unresponsive in a bathtub in 2015 when it was believed that drugs were involved.
Jackie Chan always fights the bad guys in movies he stars in and therefore, his name within this list should come as a surprise to most. However, it must be understood that Jackie wasn’t involved in any misdemeanors, and it was his son Jaycee, who was sentenced to prison in Beijing for six months after being apprehended in a huge drug bust in 2015. The Chinese law enforcement agencies found in excess of 100 g of marijuana in the apartment of the 32-year-old Jaycee. During that time, Jackie was named by the Chinese government as an anti-drugs administrator. This was not a case of mistaken identity but just one of getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
The daughter of Bruce and Demi, Scout who was born on July 20, 1991 was apprehended for giving the cops a fake ID after she was stopped with an open beer. In 2014 the youngest daughter of Bruce and Demi, Tallulah began rehab at the age of 20 after partying hard for a number of years. This was definitely a case with the problem children of celebrities.
Marcus Jordan, the son of Michael Jordan, got detained for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in 2012 after getting involved in a loud fight with a couple of women. Recently, Marcus was seen on twitter sharing a picture of his private parts.
