Celebrities with drug addicted parents

dap, lindsay-lohan-en-la-gala-amfar“The apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree,” is a truism that is particularly crystallized in the case study of beleaguered actress Lindsay Lohan. Her earnest, often tortuous, journey towards sobriety has most likely been complicated and impeded by addiction to illicit narcotics at the core of her being: her gene pool.

Both of LiLo’s parents are, or were, addicted to drugs, particularly Lohan’s mother Dina, whose bizarre and sad episodes of drug-fueled behavior have been well-documented.

As Lohan swears off alcohol even as her mother continues to struggle with her addictions, we take a look at other A-list celebrities whose parents are or were addicted to drugs.
