When the child of a star gets herself or himself into trouble they also drag their famous parent or parents down with them. Because of that fact, many celebrities work very hard to keep their child out of the spotlight.
Several celebrity kids have done stints in jail. Some have spent years while others spent just an hour or two. Being surrounded by money, expensive things and famous people can lead to constant partying, drug use and trouble with the law. Having celebrity parents at times can be tough. Parents who are doing sitcoms, TV series or movie after movie have little time to raise their children and their offspring grows up feeling neglected, angry and rebellious. Here is a look at 12 celebrity kids who have seemingly found more than their fair share of trouble.
12. Cameron Douglas
Cameron Douglas, the son of Michael Douglas and grandson of Kirk Douglas, has been in and out of drug rehab since the age of 13. Michael Douglas once wrote that his son’s problems come from the fact that he had an absentee father and had a young mother who had no parenting skills.
Cameron has a long list of criminal offenses including being arrested in 1999, when he was found with cocaine in Manhattan. He was arrested and charged with possession of controlled substance. Eventually the charges were dropped and he pled guilty to disorderly conduct. In 2007, he was once again charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. Police found Douglas with a syringe of liquid cocaine in his car. In 2009, he was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Administration (at the time he was in possession of 0.5 pounds of methamphetamines). Because of the large amount of drugs he was caught with, he was charged with intent to distribute, which carries a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. In January of 2010, Douglas pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possession of heroin. He was sentenced to five years.
