Someone once said that money is the root of all evil. When it comes to some celebrities, their families and their ludicrous amounts of money, this saying definitely rings true. Some people in Hollywood haven’t been so lucky when it comes to fame and fortune. Instead of having to fear those outside their tightknit circles, some celebrities have actually been exploited by members of their own families. Some have had to take drastic measures to protect themselves, their careers and their money, which has sometimes meant shutting their families out. Here are 6 celebrities who have sued their parents!
6. Aaron Carter
Back in 2003, Aaron Carter sued his mother, claiming that she took more than $100,000 from his bank account without his permission. He also claims that she took several of his most prized possessions, including a jacket worn by Michael Jackson in his “Thriller” video and gifts from Bruce Willis worth more than $1 million. Carter was also seeking legal emancipation from his mother who – with his father – had been managing his career for about ten years at that point.
