From the outside, it can sometimes seem like celebrities live in their own worlds, removed from the duties and cares that the rest of us have to deal with. In that sense, it’s often sobering when you find out that they actually do have to face a lot of the same issues as everybody else – like dealing with their families, for example. And while no clan is perfect, and we all have our horror stories, the feuds that these famous people have had with their nearest and dearest often take dysfunction to another level entirely.
20. Kelly Rowland
Kelly Rowland might not have been a Destiny’s Child for a while now, but she hasn’t been her father’s daughter for a lot longer. Rowland’s father allegedly had issues with alcohol and his temper when she was a child, and both of these things ended up driving her and her mother away. As a consequence, they haven’t had any contact since, although he’s tried to reach her many times.
19. Christian Bale
Christian Bale has a reputation for having a short fuse, but did you know that he was arrested for assault in 2008? While getting ready for the premiere of The Dark Knight, Bale had a huge falling-out with his mother and sister at the Dorchester hotel in London. But while he was subsequently brought in by police and questioned on assault charges, those charges never stuck. That said, while it remains unclear as to what the cause of the fight was, Bale’s relationships with his mom and sibling have remained fractured ever since.
