Here are some of the most famous child stars gone wild:
1. Justin Bieber: Bieber was discovered on YouTube at the fragile age of 13; since then, he has become a tween pop/sex icon, and has gone more ‘diva’ than ‘bad’. Bieber has been driving recklessly, threatening paparazzi, sporting some SERIOUS attitude, and has publically displayed his large libido.
2. Miley Cyrus: Miley Cyrus started out as a beloved Disney channel star, and, like many, moved her career into music. Once this happened, Miley lost her innocence: she has since chopped her hair off, gives off provocative concert performances, and has some drug use history.
3. Michael Jackson: Michael Jackson is the quintessential definition of a childstar gone wrong. His legendary career began at 11 with the Jackson 5, however, his reputation went sour when accusations of child molestation, drug use, and inexplicable behavior began to arise.
4. Jodie Sweetin: This case is a bit more incognito, but our beloved Stephanie from Full House admitted to having addiction issues with code, ecstasy, and crystal meth. She has now publically announced sobriety.
5. Macaulay Culkin: The adorable star of Home Alone was dating one of the hottest females in Hollywood, Mila Kunis, for nearly ten years, before his heroine and prescription drug use caused the couple to split, leaving Culkin with a beaten psyche, as well as a withering body.
