Hey readers! Welcome back to Humor Nation! Child artists have always ruled the limelight either for their actions or for cuteness. Every common kid who looks up to them aspires to be the same. Like obviously who wouldn’t like to have fame and a fat income at a really young age?
But do we know the backstage story? No. The real life of these kids is far more vulnerable than one can ever assume. The day-night shoots, loads of makeup and not enough rest and a crashed academic status. And the sad part is, in most cases once the parents put them into the industry all they care about is money.
Here are 7 artists who as child artist were fed up enough of their parents to take them to court and file a suit against them. Let’s know the story of 7 such kids.
1. Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton was a popular child artist from the tv show ‘The OC’. She kept her mother to manage all her income and trusted her enough to never keep any record. But at 29 years if age her mortgage failed payments and the house was forcefully ordered a foreclosure.
Her mother had all bucks herself and refused to help her at her times. This left no option rather than filing a betrayal case.
2. Drew Barrymore
Drew was from a family already rooted well in Hollywood. She started her career as an 11-month-old baby. But at 9 She got negatively addicted to parties, drugs, and alcohol. Her parents only saw her ruining her life and then threw her to rehab.
There she realized all her faults and went to court to live away from her parents.
3. Billy Unger
Billy Unger is the child artist from the Disney show ‘Lab Rats’. His father was his finance manager. More than his kid he was interested in spending vacations with other women out of the money earned by Billy.
Sooner Billy took him to court and sued him for fraud and breach of contract.
