The Curse of Childhood Celebrity

By kml     Apr 8, 2007 in Entertainment
Being a childhood celebrity seems to be both a blessing and a curse, as many children who find fame at an early age find nothing but trouble later in life.
Brian Bonsall, who played Andy is the youngest member of the Keaton clan. He was arrested last week for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.
His girl friend complained and said on a 911 call that he pour whiskey in her eyes when she was asleep and later when she tried to leave he threw her on the ground for around five or six times.
"It's sad. Here's another tragedy — someone who we kind of grew up with," psychologist Robert Butter worth said. "But you know, we grew up, maybe he didn't."
We know there are many younger stars who earned a lot in there childhood and got a good name. But few younger stars are spoiled only due to the addictions of drugs.
Bonaduce said. "I had $72,000 when I turned 18, and I said, 'Well, I can try to eke out a life on 72 grand or I can have an outrageous September'.
Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Leif Garrett and even Macauley Culkin shined as young stars and then struggled outside the spotlight.
