This very famous film actor and actress couple is dealing with their out-of-control kid.
This should not come as a big shock.
They knew he was using for more than five years, but they just kept bankrolling him through college and his career… and his drug habit.
Why didn’t they just yank him out of college and cut off his big allowance?
They were in denial. They wanted to keep the whole mess private. They kept hoping that he would eventually grow up and take some responsibility.
It never happened, and now he is simply a full-blown addict with limited career prospects.
The parents paid for rehab, but his sobriety didn’t last long.
He’s using again. He’s got a big mouth and a nasty temper, too.
The parents are trying to get him to return to rehab, but he is of legal age and is fighting them on that.
They are very intent on saving him, but may need some help.
If they are unable to convince him themselves to go back to rehab, they are planning to stage an intervention this weekend.
Good luck to them.
