Spotlight, glitz, and glamour are the things that surround celebrities. Perfect pictures, perfect smile, money, cars, mansions are things they rarely lack. However, as regards inauspicious matters, we have seen that these leading lights struggle with life issues as much as their fans; maybe more. For instance, alcoholism, which is the core of this article. This phenomenon has left countless families in ruins. It is so bad that the celebrity status can't protect a child who had a parent or parents who were alcoholics. We have seen many of these stars come up and talk and spread awareness about alcoholism because they've witnessed its harm firsthand.
Many of the stories these celebrities tell feature parental abuse and resultant separation from the afflicted parent. The terrible ones lead to irreparable damage, like in Charlize Theron's case. However, some of the celeb-relayed stories ended quite well. English singer-songwriter, Kelly Osbourne forgave her previously addicted father, Ozzy Osbourne. Kelly sees no reason to blame him for her battle with substance abuse.
Whether famous or not, no child deserves an alcoholic parent. Such a parent leaves their children with life-long scars that don't always heal. Inauspiciously, some of those children will battle the same addictions that plagued their parents. Stay glued to this write up to learn about some stars' experiences with this pressing issue.
