When your child is a celebrity in the limelight, the last thing you want is for them to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons. We all know that everyone has bad days and OMG moments, but not everyone has them broadcast for the whole world to see. As if being a celebrity with your life under scrutiny wasn’t tough enough...
Some of the pics are downright shocking, others highly amusing, while many could very well have broken the internet. Perhaps it just confirms the theory that money and fame can't guarantee common sense.
From drunken nights in the club passed out to nude pics on social media to arrests and make outs, the list includes everything and everyone. No is safe. We even included a few former child stars like Britney Spears, Mischa Barton, and Lindsay Lohan, who have all had moments in lapsed judgment. Some managed to turn their life around and clean up their act, while others have unfortunately continued to spiral out of control. A few of these famous faces sure took misbehaving to a whole new level, and all share one thing in common -- they don't follow the rules.
From Britney Spears almost dropping her baby to Lindsay Lohan passed out drunk to Michael Jordan's son uploading naked pics to Twitter, we reveal all. Some of these celebrities had to endure their less fine moments in life splashed on the front page, making headline-grabbing news.
Some pictures should be forgotten, but we couldn't resist revealing all. Take a look at our list of the top 15 most outrageous and shocking pics of celebrity kids their parents don't want you to see next...
15 Montana Fishburne Urinating Mid-Arrest
Hands up if you remember that time when Laurence Fishburne’s daughter, Montana Fishburne, decided to star in a triple-X-rated adult film? It was back in 2010, and the media had a field day, partly due to her famous father and largely due to the fact that she was barely legal at just 18 years of age.
The embarrassed father did everything in his power to try and stop the film from releasing, even resorting to getting friends to help buy up all of the copies for a cool $1 million before anyone else had the chance too, but it was too late. The videos shipped out to stores, and what followed was the start of a downward spiral for the actor's daughter.
“He told me he was embarrassed by me,” Montana once famously revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2011. Looking back, that's nothing compared to what happened next as this pic has surfaced featuring Montana urinating after being arrested for drunk driving. A police dashcam video shows the shocking moment Laurence Fishburne's handcuffed daughter relieved herself over the guard rail on I-95 in Florida. She then proceeded to ask the officer to wipe off her feet.
"I’m not tripping, I’m a f****** ratchet," Montana told Trooper Juan Pinzon. We can't help but agree...
14 Britney Spears Nearly Dropping her Baby
Enter Britney Spears, the next famous face to make it onto the list. Britney and ex-husband Kevin Federline share a tumultuous relationship together, which resulted in two sons: Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline. Back in the early 2000s, Britney's ability to look after her children was brought into question. First, a pic emerged of her driving with her son, Sean Preston, on her lap in the car, and then this pic: Britney Spears nearly dropping her baby, which luckily resulted in her bodyguard coming to her aid before baby Sean left her arms.
The incident took place outside the Ritz-Carlton hotel, and mamma Britney was said to have Sean Preston in one hand and a drink in another. It's been said that her long pants got in the way, causing the star to trip and resulting in the child's head flinging back in the process, all of which was captured in HD by the paparazzi nearby.
She may be a pop icon in her own right, and while her latest singles made the news for all the right reasons, her questionable parenting techniques made the headlines for all the wrong ones.
13 Paris Hilton Drunk in Da Club
This is one of those instances where not only the celeb's parents but also the rest of the family would be embarrassed by the damning photographic evidence. We can only imagine what was going through grandpa Hilton's mind when he came across this shocking pic of Paris Hilton passing out drunk and falling over in a local nightclub. To add insult to injury, the young heiress was later arrested and has a DUI charge against her name.
Then again, while for most celebrities, getting smacked with a DUI is one step closer to career suicide and an instant image crisis, for Paris Hilton, it was practically a career boost.
“Paris Hilton being arrested just makes her more famous," said veteran publicist Michael Levine. “She has devoted her entire adult life to appearing to be the princess of parties.”
12 Ariel Winter Naked in a Tub
It’s safe to say that Modern Family's own Alex Dunphy has officially graduated -- as well as the actress playing Alex herself, that is. Up-and-coming star Ariel Winter makes it onto the list with this pic guaranteed to raise more than just a few eyebrows. The 18-year-old actress enjoyed a soak in the tub, which saw her surrounded by romantic lit candles and a glass of what appeared to be red wine.
The Modern Family star has no problem in sharing everything with her fans, and we mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g as she soaks in a bubble bath without a care in the world.
"Today's office...relax everyone it's cranberry juice and I'm wearing lady bit pasties," she said, referring to what looked like a glass of wine sitting next to her. "#DogYears #set #movie
It's not the first time Ariel shared a risque pic on social media that would undoubtedly cause parents heart palpitations due to their anxiety levels. But for young, budding actress Ariel Winter, it seems the controversial star has it all figured out. She revealed all to ET saying, "I love to share everything because I know the people that follow me like to see what's going on, and I love to share it with them. The people that support me, their comments are so lovely, and I love sharing my life with them."
11 Kylie Jenner Topless
'Happy birthday baby!' Kylie Jenner declared alongside this raunchy pic that got hearts racing and the world's attention. To celebrate then-boyfriend rapper Tyga's 27th birthday, she posted a topless Instagram pic of the couple embracing, as well as a series of other equally provocative shots. Clearly, birthday cards and actual gifts are so last season for the youngest Kardashian/Jenner sibling.
The pair are both pictured topless, and the 19-year-old's decision to post such a sexy image was met with mixed reviews. One can only imagine what went through momager Kris Jenner's mind upon seeing the post. After years of branding the Kardashian clan and seeing to several endorsement deals, this may just result in alienating possible investors, making it a pic she definitely doesn't want us to see.
10 Miley Cyrus's Drug Den aka Studio
When it comes to Miley Cyrus, the pop singer has been more than forthcoming with her experimentation with drugs and alcohol. This next pic, however, pushes the boundaries to the max and makes you question how on earth she gets away with it.
Sure, the 24-year-old has always opted for full disclosure, but perhaps having this pic of you surrounded by a pile of weed, a rolled-up bank note, and a suspicious looking vial of white powder is going just a tad too far. Insiders reveal father to the aspiring star Billy Ray Cyrus would agree and was anything but pleased when this pic surfaced.
These days, the former Hannah Montana star is all about freeing inhibitions and is an advocate for the disenfranchised but has decided to clean up her lifestyle just a bit. In a new interview with Billboard magazine, Cyrus tells all, revealing she has quit all alcohol and drugs, including weed.
"I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever gone without it," Cyrus said. "I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do."
She went on to say, "When I want something, it’s f--king easy for me," she said. "But if anyone told me not to smoke, I would have not done it. It’s because it was on my time. I know exactly where I am right now." Ahhh, now that sounds more like the old Miley we know and love.
9 Marcus Jordan and his Genitalia
What would you do if you found yourself in a situation where your son "accidentally" shared a pic on Twitter featuring his family crown jewels. For iconic basketball legend, retired NBA player Michael Jordan, that's exactly what happened -- and let's just say he wasn't happy about it.
Marcus Jordan, the son of Michael, first made the headlines when he was arrested back in 2012. He faced charges, including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. And just to make matters worse, the altercation involved him fighting with not one but two women.
Onto his next and greatest scandal and we're greeted with a nude pic he shared on social media "accidentally." Marcus Jordan claims he “accidentally” tweeted a picture of his genitals to his followers. Lucky or unlucky for us, the infamous tweet was forwarded to Deadspin by a tipster before it was deleted. He then returned to Twitter the following Sunday, when he used his rather checkered Twitter past to argue that the picture wasn’t his: "My homies hitting me up talking about some pic that was posted from my account. I mean, really? Y’all think I don’t know how to work this?" Nope, we really don't. Someone teach this lad the art of DMs, quick.
8 Lindsay Lohan Falling over Drunk
Something tells us Lindsay Lohan's father would be anything but proud to have this image of Lindsay Lohan circulating the net. Drunk and disorderly are the least of his problems as his daughter can be seen close to passing out on the floor.
She was once at the top of her game and starred in numerous leading roles from the one in Freaky Friday to her memorable performance on Mean Girls. Lindsay was all set to become the next IT girl, but her penchant for drugs and alcohol got the best of her. A few arrests and all-nighters followed, and soon, this image of Lindsay was front page news.
When it comes to Lindsay Lohan, some might dare to say she was the poster child for celebrity rehab, and her father, TV personality Michael Lohan, should take full responsibility for the way things unfolded. In a telling interview on the Steve Harvey Show, Michael revealed, "I think, inevitably, I think we are responsible for the path that Lindsay took. Our divorce because of our relationship affected Lindsay to the point where she drowned her sorrows and numbed her pain."
Things have since gone quiet on the Lindsay Lohan front, so we can only assume she's on her way to making a long-awaited comeback.
Sharing is caring, Ariel. Please do go on...
7 Mischa Barton's Mental Episode
For Nuala Barton, this next pic is a double whammy for her being both manager and mom to TV actress Mischa Barton. One can only imagine what was going through her mind when pics showing her daughter mid-mental breakdown were splashed all over the news.
A video leaked as well, which showed her screaming incoherently at the top of her lungs, and still images from that fateful incident were shared all over social media. This shocking pic features what appears to be an inebriated Mischa on the verge of a mental breakdown as she leans over her backyard fence in nothing but a shirt and tie.
A transcript from the video was also released, which featured Mischa's episode:
"On planet Earth… Uh, bye. Like, anybody? Oh, my God, it’s over! I feel it and it’s angry! Oh, my God! My mother, I always knew it. You fucking witch! I knew it! What a witch! I was right! I was right! I was right! We’re dying, I knew it. I knew it, and I didn’t want anybody to know!"
Mischa Barton was hospitalized and later released after she claimed she had been drugged with GHB.
6 Michael Jackson's Moment on the Balcony
This moment will forever be etched in our memories as the King of Pop himself pulled a crazy stunt like no other. While mom to the music legend was a firm supporter in everything he did, even this was a little too much for Katherine Jackson.
Understandably so, as this is one pic the matriarch of the Jackson family wouldn't want the world to see as her son Michael dangled his then 9-month-old son, Prince Michael II, over his fourth-story balcony. This was back when he insisted on putting a blanket or cloth over his kids' faces when they were out in public to mask their identity, making this stunt even that much more shocking.
Later, Jackson released a statement in which he called the entire incident a “terrible mistake.” The statement continued, “I offer no excuses for what happened. I got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I would never intentionally endanger the lives of my children.” Perhaps it's simply a case of too little, too late...
5 North West's Front Row Tantrum
We all know that mother-of-two, Kim Kardashian West, is a huge fan of living her life on social media, but something tells us this pic of North West was shared for all the wrong reasons. Sure, every mother will experience a day when their child has a world-class tantrum, but not every one of them has to relive the moment for the whole world to see.
Things took a turn for the worse when North decided that it was the perfect time to throw a wobbly while he was sitting front row at NYFW. Seated alongside the tiny tot were the likes of Puff Daddy, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Hailey Baldwin, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Soon after Nori became upset, the 34-year-old reality star felt obliged to leave early and escorted North backstage. Whilst the tantrum may have only lasted a couple of minutes, the pictures will last a lifetime.
4 Selena Gomez's Nauseating PDA with Justin Bieber
Remember the good old days when former Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez and the child star turned success story, Justin Bieber, were on speaking terms? The notorious on-again-off-again coupling of Selena and Bieber even resulted in the celebrity pair being referred to as Jelena.
During one of the times when the couple was back on and things were heating up, Selena was whisked away on a vacation to Maui in Hawaii. They were snapped lip-locking on a walk through the tropical gardens at the Hyatt Regency Ka'anapali Hotel.
Bieber was captured by local paparazzi playfully grabbing the Come and Get It star's booty, and what followed throughout the trip was bouts of nauseating acts of PDA. "She's amazing!" gushed Bieber when he agreed to speak to Us magazine -- as are these pics of Selena in a bikini, regardless of what Mrs. Gomez has to say about them.
3 That One Time Charlize Theron Dragged Her Son
Charlize Theron may be an award-winning actress, but she won't be walking away with a Mother-of-the-Year award anytime soon. In a shocking revelation, it seems Charlize was caught by paparazzi dragging her 4-year-old son in a parking lot.
The mother of two was snapped wrestling her son in a parking lot back in February, and before long, this photo was published with the attention-grabbing headline “Monster Mom! Charlize Theron Snapped Dragging 4-Year-Old Son!” Thanks to her celebrity status, the Oscar-winning actress was harshly judged for her actions and questionable parenting techniques. Thanks to social media and the paparazzi, Charlize experienced mom-shaming on a whole new level.
We can't help but assume momager Gerda is not too impressed with the media coverage the incident received and wished this photo was never taken or released into the atmosphere.
2 Willow Smith Topless
Willow Smith is daughter to famous parents Will and Jada, who are practically Hollywood royalty. They have never made the headlines for anything other than positive news and are celebrated in the film world. This pic changed everything as the world sat up and took notice of young, aspiring Willow Smith.
The shocking pic emerged featuring a topless Willow, who was then just 13 years old, lying in bed with 20-year-old shirtless actor Moisés Arias. Let's just say it's nothing short of controversial. Many have since gone on the attack and accused the Smiths of bad parenting. Perhaps a topless pic of his underage daughter going viral on social media isn't high up on Will's summer wish list, making the photo one of the 15 most outrageous and shocking pics of celebrity kids their parents don't want you to see.
It doesn't look like the rebellious teen will be slowing down anytime soon, so it's safe to say we can look forward to a few more controversies in the near future. Watch this space...
1 Justin Bieber Threatening to Beat Up a Photographer
Sigh, good old Justin Bieber making it into the Top 15 not once but twice with his string of bad judgment calls and mistakes haunting his future. In one of many controversial scenarios involving the young muso, it seems the paparazzi were around at the right time in the right place. They managed to capture Bieber in the heat of the moment as he lost his cool at a photographer nearby him.
It seems his bad temper got the best of him as he lunged at the photographer before continuing to get into a private vehicle, which was in sight, waiting for him. Now, the troubled singer's antics are splashed all over the news, both in video and in stills. It's not the kind of pic that would make his parents proud, most especially mother to the star and former manager Pattie Mallette, who spent years supporting and promoting him.
Justin's response to the whole sordid affair involved a social media rant on Twitter, of course. "Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u...well I'm human. Rough week. Not gonna let them get the best of me again. Gonna get focused on this show tonight. Adrenaline is high now. Gonna put it on the stage."
In a final tweet, Justin reflected, "Only way someone can break u is if u let them."
