Being famous doesn’t automatically make you a perfect parent. Far from it, in fact. These 25 celebrities all found that their children turned into monsters. It might not have been their fault, but it’s definitely not something they’re entirely proud of, either. Click through to check out these little (and not so little) monsters.
Robert Downey Jr. and Indio Downey
Robert Downey Jr. has made a killing from his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His son Indio, on the other hand, has been arrested for felony possession and has been sent to rehab.
Jon Bon Jovi and Stephanie Rose Bon Jovi
Jon’s one of the world’s biggest rockstars. Stephanie’s been arrested for drug possession and been charged with a misdemeanor drug offense after being admitted for an overdose.
Farah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal and Redmond O’Neal
Two acting megastars for parents in the form of Farah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal couldn’t stop Redmond O’Neal for serving a year for substance abuse.
Keith Richards and Theodora Richards
While he’s no saint himself, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones may have provided a negative role model for daughter Theodora who was arrested for both possession and vandalism.
Joe Montana and Nate Montana
The football superstar Joe Montana hoped his son would be just like him. Instead, Nate’s been slapped with a DUI and has been publicly drunk on several inappropriate occasions.
Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen
They’re both actors, but that’s where the similarities end. Martin Sheen is a Golden Globe winner and human rights activist. Charlie’s been arrested about as often as anyone else sits down for dinner. He was fired from the best paying job in TV and his ex-wife took an injunction out against him.
NeNe Leakes and Bryson Bryant
NeNe Leakes stars in Glee and The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her son Bryson regularly stars in a line up at the police station and has been arrested for shoplifting as well as possession.
Tommy Hilfiger and Richard Hilfiger
Tommy Hilfiger redefined what branding on clothes meant. His son Richard, who is trying to launch a rap career, was bailed out after being arrested for selling drugs.
Al Gore and Al Gore III
Maybe he shouldn’t have named his son after himself. The former Presidential candidate Al Gore’s son Al Gore III was busted for speeding and then for possession of drugs.
Hugh Hefner and Marston Hefner
You’d have thought growing up with a father who ran Playboy would have taught Marston a thing or two about how to treat women. Sadly, Hugh Hefner’s son was arrested for beating his girlfriend Claire Sinclair instead.
Johnny Cash and John Carter Cash
Johnny Cash is a country music legend, but his son is more infamous. John Carter Cash got pinched by the police for flashing his “equipment” at people.
Lionel Richie and Nicole Richie
Lionel Richie is one of soul’s megastars and is beloved by an entire generation. His daughter Nicole, on the other hand, can boast of a DUI conviction instead.
Eazy-E and Eric Wright Jr.
It’s hard to give a rap star like Eazy-E a bad name, but that’s what his son Eric Wright Jr. did when he was busted for concealed weapons.
Cybil Shepherd and Cyrus Zachariah
You would have thought with Cybil Shepherd’s earnings from Moonlighting, her son Cyrus Zachariah wouldn’t need to steal. But that’s what he was arrested for at Philadelphia Internation Airport all the same.
Hulk Hogan and Nick Hogan
Hulk Hogan is a legend in the WWF. Nick Hogan drove his car into a tree and nearly killed his friend. He was arrested and charged with reckless driving.
Nick Nolte and Brawley Nolte
Nick Nolte has played a drunk once or twice in the movies, but his son Brawley has played one in real life. He was arrested for DUI after a car crash.
George W. Bush and Barbara AND Jenna Bush
Former President George W. Bush had his own problems with the bottle, and it seems to run in the family. Both of his daughters, Barbara and Jenna, have been arrested for underage drinking.
Rudy Giuliani and Caroline Giuliani
Rudy Giuliani was famed as a lawyer who broke many a mafioso in his time. His daughter, Caroline, seemed to miss the memo about not breaking the law and was arrested for shoplifting.
Ozzy Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne
Ozzy’s no role model himself, but Kelly Osbourne was arrested for assaulting Zoe Griffin in a club. She seems to have mellowed with age, though.
Laurence Fishburne and Montana Fishburne
Montana Fishburne followed her father into acting. So why isn’t Laurence pleased? Because she became an adult video star and refused to stop. He cut her off completely when the movie came out.
Michael Jordan and Marcus Jordan
Michael Jordan is a billionaire and the best known NBA player of all time. His son has been arrested for fighting with women and charged with resisting arrest. He also famously tweeted a picture of his undercarriage.
Michael Douglas and Cameron Douglas
Married to Catherine Zeta-Jones and having beaten cancer may have helped actor Michael Douglas come to terms with Cameron’s 9-year jail sentence for crystal meth use.
Nicolas Cage and Weston Cage
Weston Cage’s father Nicolas Cage is known for his good and spectacularly bad film roles. Weston’s performance was to attack his girlfriend and get arrested before checking into rehab.

Jackie Chan wows box offices around the world with his kung fu skills. Jaycee Chan got six months in jail after being busted in Beijing.
Tom Hanks and Chet Hanks
