We never seem to hear an end to the reports about Celeb kids getting into trouble.
We hear scandals in the news all the time about rampant drug use, and obnoxious behavior. It seems like a life of immense fame, wealth and luxury is a recipe for disaster.
So we have made a list of Celeb kids turned criminals – you will quickly discover that fame and fortune don’t seem like such a romantic ideal, when you find out what it does to your kids!
Charlie Sheen – son of Martin Sheen
Charlie Sheen is probably the most obvious example of a delinquent kid of a celeb parent. From accidentally shooting his fiancée in the arm, to a life spent going in and out of drug rehab, to scandalous interactions with prostitutes.
Throughout the years he has been arrested on multiple drug and assault charges, and had a restraining order against him for domestic violence.
Cameron Douglas – son of Michael Douglas
Cameron Douglas seems to have had a life of utter turmoil – born into a Hollywood dynasty, with not only a celeb father, but a celeb grandfather, Kirk Douglas. In 2009 he was arrested for drug offenses, includingdrug dealing.
Initially given a 5-year jail term, it was later doubled, and included 2 years in solitary confinement, after having his lawyer smuggle anti-anxiety medication to him in jail – this was controversially harsh.
Jaycee Chan – son of Jackie Chan
In 2014, Jaycee Chan was busted on drug possession and “sheltering others to use drugs”. In China such a charge can get you locked up for 3 years, but his sentence was reduced to 6 months when he cooperated by giving information to the police.
Cyrus Zachariah – son of Cybill Shepherd
You would think that being born into the lap of luxury would mean that any desire to commit theft would not enter your mind. But this clearly is not the case.
Cybill Shepherd’s son decided to help himself to the contents of two different passenger’s hand luggage on a flight he was traveling on in 2010. Upon arrival he was arrested and charged with theft.
Caroline Giuliani – daughter of Rudy Giuliani
Caroline is the daughter of an ex-NY mayor, who was famous for a “zero-tolerance” to crime, which ultimately reduced crime rates in the city.
It is undoubtedly ironic that his daughter would end up being arrested for shoplifting around $100 worth of cosmetics. It seems like he didn’t pass on his ideas about zero-tolerance to his daughter.
Venisha Brown – daughter of James Brown
After a heated interaction between herself and her boss, Venisha stole her boss’s car, hit her boss with it and drove away. Her boss needed to be transported to hospital. Venisha was later arrested and jailed for committing a hit-and-run in a stolen vehicle, and first-degree assault and battery.
Christian Brando – son of Marlon Brando
Christian was the eldest of Marlon Brando’s 10 children, so he saw himself as a father figure to his siblings. When his sister Cheyenne accused her boyfriend of abusing her, Christian flew into a drunken rage and shot him to death. He ended up being arrested and convicted of manslaughter, and served 6 years in prison.
