The job of the celebrity is to maintain their carefully constructed image: from personal trainers to plastic surgeons, from publicists to image consultants, celebs do everything in their power to make sure they look good. But just like the rest of us, no matter how hard they try, there will always be a little part of them they can’t change. Their family. Here are ten celebrities with the most embarrassing family members—out of control, hot-mess parents, brothers and sisters whose wacky behavior is an embarrassment to us all.
10) John Draper Witherspoon, brother of Reese Witherspoon
This Hollywood starlet maintains a sparkling good-girl image, while her brother goes around Nashville attacking women. John Draper Witherspoon was arrested for aggravated burglary and sexual battery, entering the home of a young woman and assaulting her while she slept. When Reese was asked about her brother, she replied: “No comment.” Elle Woods would have said, “I object!”
9) Darryl McCauley, half brother of Dane Cook
Most brothers fight over simple stuff, like video games or the last cheese puff in the bag. Dane Cook’s (half) brother started a much bigger fight: he was found guilty of embezzlement, stealing millions of dollars from the popular comedian. Good thing he’s in prison for five to six years!
8) Daniel Baldwin, brother of Alec Baldwin
It’s hard being the least successful brother. Daniel has tried to attract attention to himself a slew of other ways: running naked through the Plaza Hotel, crashing into parked cars, and an arrest for possession of cocaine.
7) Montana Fishburne, daughter of Laurence Fishburne
Laurence Fishburne, Tony and Emmy award winning actor, must have had quite the surprise when his daughter was arrested for prostitution. Additionally, she used her Hollywood cred to establish a career as a porn star, going by the name “Chippie D.” Google Image results include a close-up of her pockmarked butt.
6) Al Gore III, son of Al Gore
5) Hania Barton, sister of Mischa Barton
4) Barron Hilton, brother of Paris Hilton
3) Noelle Bush, daughter of Gov. Jeb Bush, niece of former President George W. Bush
Noelle Bush, one of the few criminals to be photographed in a cardigan, was first jailed for forging a prescription. Then she was jailed for violating her plan of treatment. “My daughter’s not perfect,” says Jeb. Well neither are you, buddy.
2) Keith Hudson, father of Katy Perry
“You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey,” preached Keith Hudson, minister father of Katy Perry. “You go to LA and … where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah. Amen.” This man wears his religion like bling around his neck, spreading anti-semitism around Ohio.
1) Alison Carey Scott, sister of Mariah Carey
