These people all have one thing in common—their famous families are horrified by their behavior .
Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) is nothing if not honest. At least that's what he says while promoting his memoir "A Common Struggle," about his family's battle with mental health and substance-abuse issues. Former Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy's son has faced "significant" opposition from his famous relatives about his claims that his dad suffered from PTSD and that both of his parents were alcoholics.
Bill Clinton's rocker half-brother was known for a time as the "first brother." But the Clintons were quick to distance themselves from the aspiring singer who was once accused of accepting cash and gifts in exchange for lobbying his famous brother for presidential pardons. Currently, Roger claims he is broke, owes back taxes and is living in a Torrance, Calif., home purchased by his brother.
While Martin Sheen's other kids (Emilio, Renee and Ramon Estevez) keep a lower profile than "The Warlock," Charlie Sheen can't seem to keep himself out of trouble. After his very public meltdown that involved him "winning" on Twitter and getting himself fired from his hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men," Sheen has remained in the news, rarely for anything good.
His latest brush with trouble came in the form of Charlie being forceably removed from a Dana Point, Calif., bar in a headlock after a fan tried to take a photo with him. President Bartlett must be so proud.
In the 1980s, George and Jeb's younger brother was sanctioned by the government for his involvement in the collapse of the Denver-based Silverado Savings & Loan that cost taxpayers $1 billion. Years later, the younger Bush left nothing to the imagination when he was deposed during his divorce from Sharon Bush. Neil described elicit business dealings and sex romps with multiple partners, making him the most embarrassing brother-to-the-president since Roger Clinton.
Tom Hanks's son Chet Hanks is an aspiring rapper and singer who, after being reported missing, has shared his struggle with drugs and alcohol in a series of Instagram posts. After selling drugs, Chet was admitted to rehab and says he's trying to get his "shit together." Sounds like he's on his way to recovery.
President Barack Obama's uncle was pulled over for drunk driving in Framingham, Mass., in 2011. When the police offered the elder Obama a phone call, he asked to call the White House. It's safe to assume that the president did not take his call.
In 2007, the former vice president's only son was driving more than 100 mph when he was pulled over by a San Diego sheriff who smelled marijuana. This was not the younger Gore's first brush with the law. In 2003, he was arrested for marijuana possession after being pulled over in Maryland.
Prince Andrew's ex was a royal black sheep from the time they said "I do." And though Andrew and Fergie remained friends after their divorce, she was caught on videotape by a reporter posing as a VIP willing to pay Fergie $750,000 for access to the royal family.
TV audiences got to know Nick Hogan when he was the race-car-driving teen on "Hogan Knows Best," which featured Hulk Hogan and his family. But when Nick got behind the wheel after drinking and was racing at speeds over 100 mph, he got into a wreck that left his passenger and best friend dead. Nick served eight months in jail and says he used the time to learn about "detaching from my ego."
Actor Michael Douglas's son Cameron is currently serving a nine-and-a half-year prison sentence for drug-related charges. And despite Cameron being found in jail with drugs in his system and even though his defense attorney helped him smuggle drugs in to jail, Michael has stood behind his son. Cameron Douglas will be eligible for parole in 2018.
When your dad is "The Matrix" star Laurence Fishburne, you'd think you'd be set for a career in Hollywood. But for Montana Fishburne, a career on camera meant her porn debut in 2010 at the age of 18. Laurence is said to have been "extremely hurt" by Montana's career choice and has since cut ties with his daughter. In her defense, Montana is quoted as saying she regrets getting into porn. Her newest plan is "to get an education."
