As kids, we all fantasize about growing up to become rich and famous. But for celebrity children, success is something they’re born with. So why do the majority of young Hollywood stars end up so messed up, especially when they are born with such privilege. Is bad parenting to blame? Or is the downfall of celebrity children simply an unavoidable result of growing up in the public eye? It’s become a Hollywood cliché that being raised in limelight is hazardous for one’s mental and physical health. Just take the infamous Lindsay Lohan for example. We all saw that train wreck coming from a mile away.
Even if they’ve never starred in a movie or recorded an album, celebs’ kids are in the spotlight constantly. We all watch them grow from tiny tots, to teens, to adults thanks to the media. But it’s tough growing up in the limelight, that’s a fact, and it’s true whether you’re a star in your own right, or the child of a celebrity. With tabloids exhaustively reporting every possible detail of stars’ lives, no mistake goes unnoticed, and that goes for celebrity children as well.
For celeb kids, that kind of attention and pressure can prove to be disastrous even with the best of parents, which very few of them have.
It seems as though celebrity children are often doomed to fail with reckless relationships, excessive partying, drug addiction, lavish spending, depression, self-image issues, and a lack of privacy being common symptoms of their upbringing.
Their foot-in-mouth-moments all play out on a global stage to an audience ravenous for a scandal. Worse yet, foibles during their formative years stick like glue on these kids’ reputations.
I mean, can you imagine if every move you made during your teenage years had been plastered in the media for all the world to see?
The downfall of celebrity children is a tale as old as Hollywood. Whether it’s thanks to poor parenting, or simply a by-product of growing up in the tabloids.
Here is a list of 15 celeb kids that will be messed up in the future, cause let’s face it– these famous offspring don’t stand a chance.
1. Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is the youngest of the Kardashian clan, and she’s had no trouble making a name for herself at a very young age, thanks to growing up on the popular reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. When she was 17, she bought her own house and starting dating the 25 year-old rapper, Tyga. Now at the age of 20, Jenner has developed her own makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics, and has net worth of over $50 million dollars. But we know what tends to happen to celebrity children raised in the spot light with unlimited amounts of cash at their disposal, just take Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears for example. Like Lohan and Spears, Kylie hasn’t always had it easy, especially with her father’s recent public sexual transformation. Like her big sisters, Kylie cultivated a passion for risqué Instagram photos at an early age that would make a normal parent throw their teen’s cell phone in the garbage disposal. She’s also taken up cosmetic surgery as a hobby, beginning with lip injections, which she has said her parents did not approve of. Most teens rebel by sneaking out of the house, but Kylie has resorted to surgery, partying, and has taken to the internet posting half naked photos of herself, as way to get her parents’ attention. Seeing as how she was not raised with any sense of normal reality, and her parents often encouraged her outlandish behavior on their reality show, it is likely that Kylie will have a flip-out later in life, similar to that of Spears and Lohan, despite the current success that she is experiencing now.
