It’s easy to think the rich and famous have it way easier than us, but this article should give us a bit more perspective on that. We wrote a post a little while back on celebrities whose parents have committed horrible crimes, so we decided to see how many celebrities have other family members who have had difficulty with the long arm of the law. It turns out there are enough of them who have children or siblings who have had some difficulties obeying the law. From drug possession and trafficking to shootings and murders, these family members of the rich and famous have committed some pretty heinous crimes!
7. Marlon Brando’s Son, Christian
Marlon Brando’s eldest son Christian shot his younger sister Cheyenne’s boyfriend Dag Drollet in a drunken rage after she told him that he had been abusing her. Christian later claimed that the shooting was an accident and that he was just trying to scare Drollet. According to him, they had been fighting for the gun when it accidentally went off. Christian was charged and convicted of voluntary manslaughter in 1991 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. After serving five years, he was released in 1996. Twelve years later, in 2008, Christian died from pneumonia.
