Teen celebrities are always thought to be role models, and people expect them to be good on and off cam. One wrong move, and they’re all over the news. Listed below are ten of the famous teen stars who have misbehaved and gone bad. Read on.
- Drew Barrymore
The “E.T.” (The Extra-Terrestrial) star stated smoking and drinking alcohol at a young age and started using cocaine and attempted to commit suicide in her teens. She was rehabilitated and has managed to change her ways. Since then, Barrymore was back in show business and has starred in many movies.
- Amanda Bynes
Bynes from “The Amanda Show” is a former Nickelodeon star who was rumored to be mentally unstable and have spent six months in rehab. She was also arrested for DUI and was placed on psychiatric hold. She took on to Twitter and called some celebrities “ugly.”
- Macaulay Culkin
Culkin was the cute little fella in “The Home Alone.” He was once arrested for possession of marijuana and was rumored to have prescription drugs and heroin addiction. He dated Mila Kunis, and the two broke up after nearly 10 years.
- Aaron Carter
The once-known pop star was caught in possession of marijuana and has issued an apology statement following his arrest. Aaron Carter filed a bankruptcy petition in 2013 and paid $3.5 million in taxes for money he earned when he was still popular.
- Haley Joel Osment
Osment was arrested and charged with three misdemeanors including DUI and possession of marijuana in 2006. The “Sixth Sense” actor was then ordered to be admitted to a rehab.
- Lindsay Lohan
Lohan has been arrested for DUI and possession of cocaine. Her alcohol abuse issues made her unfit to receive movie projects and she has been in and out of the rehab since then.
- Britney Spears
Spears had been the talk of the town when she stayed in a drug rehabilitation center, shaved her head, gave a somewhat lousy performance at the “MTV Music Video Awards” and attacked a photographer. She was also admitted to a psychiatric ward in LA. The Pop Princess is still in the music scene despite the issues, and fans are hoping she has sobered up.
- Shia LaBeouf
LaBeouf stole the spotlight when he attended the premiere of “Nymphomaniac,” wearing a paper bag on his head. He was also in the news for his misconduct arrest in Cabaret on Broadway.
- Justin Bieber
The pop star was arrested for DUI and misdemeanor vandalism in 2014. His neighbors complained for reckless driving and for threatening the paparazzi. Bieber is also on the buzz with his on-and-off relationship with fellow singer Selena Gomez.
- Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus, technically speaking, has not gone totally bad since she has not been arrested for misbehavior. Her admission to loving marijuana, however, earned her the number one spot on the list. She has been famous for her sweet and good girl image in “Hannah Montana,” and people have raged over her sexually provocative music videosand concert performances.
Growing up in the spotlight is not easy indeed. While some of these stars managed to change their ways, some were not able to recover and have lost their shine completely.
