Does fame corrupt? Judging by events surrounding child stars of the past two decades, the answer seems to be a big yes. Riches, fame, and public attention can bring down even the purest of young celebrities. Year after year there seems to be another child star that falls from grace. Here is a list of some of the most famous child stars gone bad.
1. Justin Bieber
Having several run-ins with the law, and also picking up a recent DUI, Justin Bieber is quickly ascending the list of corrupted child stars.
2. Lindsay Lohan
After visiting rehab and having her secret lifestyle exposed, Lindsay Lohan quickly became labeled as a child star gone astray.
3. Amanda Bynes
Paparazzi caught this child star consuming drugs in her parked car as well as in the middle of other questionable acts.
4. Miley Cyrus
After leaving the shelter of country music and her Disney sitcom, Miley Cyrus went on a mission to prove that she’s not a kid anymore. Smoking marijuana on stage at concerts, shaving her head, and recently appearing nude in a music video, her constant displays and acting out have landed her on this list.
