Sometimes troublemaking celebrity kids are exposed to excessive partying, drugs, and alcohol at an early age. Sometimes their famous parents aren’t the best role models. Sometimes they’re just rich spoiled brats.
From law-breaking politicians’ kids to hard partying children of movie stars, the troubled young stars on this list have one thing in common: they don’t follow the rules. Who are some of the most notorious problem children? George W. Bush’s twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna, were charged with underage alcohol offenses in 2001 when they were 20. Luckily, they’ve grown up and come a long way. Barbara works as the President of the non-profit company Global Health Corps and Jenna is a correspondent for NBC.
Then there’s Hulk Hogan’s son, Nick, who was charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury among other things. And the list of other famous people with problem children goes on and on. (Michael Jordan, Bruce Willis, and Jon Bon Jovi, to name a few)

Moogan said that he suffered physical and emotional injuries as a result of the crash, and that Hanks and Wilson were partly to blame since they knew about Chet’s struggle with sobriety and technically owned the car.
