Many children of popular people ended their lives negatively - drugs, prison, death. They had a unique opportunity to achieve success and fame, but their fate turned out to be unfavourable due to an unfortunate set of circumstances or bad habits, which completely ruined all their chances.
OBOZREVATEL has made a selection of the most famous children of celebrities who have "broken their destiny". Among them are Cameron Douglas, Guillaume Depardieu, and Sage Stallone.
Cameron, 37, the son of actor Michael Douglas from his first marriage to Deandra Luker, is struggling with drug addiction. He has also had problems with the law and spent time in prison. His struggle with drugs began at the age of 13 and despite all his father's efforts, Cameron was never able to overcome this dangerous addiction. The only film in which Cameron starred with his father and grandfather is called Family Values. However, after this project, the young man was unable to continue his creative career, and he started having troubles with breaking the law.
In 2010, Cameron Douglas was sentenced to five years in prison for drug possession and distribution. A year later, he was added another 4.5 years for drug use inside the prison. There were rumours about Cameron's cooperation with the investigation, which made him out of favour with other prisoners. Once in prison, Cameron was brutally assaulted, resulting in a broken leg and finger.
Guillaume, the son of actor Gerard Depardieu, had a difficult life, suffered from alcohol addiction and was imprisoned. He had a tense relationship with his father. At the same time, Guillaume's life was similar to that of his famous father.
The young man was repeatedly imprisoned and suffered from alcohol problems. In addition, Guillaume was struggling with diabetes, but his life was interrupted by a virus that caused a rapidly developing pneumonia.
The son of actor Sylvester Stallone, Sage, died at the age of 36. The tragic event took place on 13 July 2012, when his body was found in his home in Los Angeles.
Various reports appeared in the media about the cause of Sage Stallone's death, including allegations of a drug overdose, but his friends denied such claims. According to the official version, the cause of death was a heart attack caused by atherosclerosis.
