Cameron Douglas Blames Drug Addiction On Dad's Fame


Cameron Douglas has decided the best way to get bail while awaiting his trial is to blame his addictions on his dad. Well, not really even his dad, but his dad's fame. I have never heard anything more ridiculous. Well, I take that back. Actually Cameron's girlfriend trying to smuggle him drugs inside an electric toothbrush was pretty damn ridiculous.

Cameron's lawyer told a judge that, "Cameron's serious heroin addiction comes from notoriety that is not due to any acts of his own but by dint of birth and a difficult upbringing. He didn't benefit from his celebrity. He was hurt by it in a variety of ways, including ways in this case."

Come on Cameron. Own up and be a man. Don't blame this on your dad. Even if your dad was off with a bunch of women having sex your mom was a pretty good mom. I haven't heard that she was a nightmare or anything. Sometimes in life you have to take responsibility for your own actions and not always look for someone to blame your troubles on. You wouldn't need bail if you had not had your girlfriend try and bring you drugs while you were on house arrest. How is that your dad's fault? Did he load up the heroin in the toothbrush?

Thankfully the judge realized what a crock it was and left him in jail to await his trial.

he needs some serious therapy to work out his unresolved issues with his dad once he gets out of prison. i feel sympathy for him, so i hope things get better.

Way to go. I'm sure it has everything to do with Dad's fame and nothing to do with Cameron being a spineless, spoiled addictive personality with too much money and not enough guts to take responsibility for his own actions.

Nice try. Next.

Well, having too much money and a father who's a horrible role model surely didn't help him, but I agree that he's a big ol' wuss.

Reese said...

Good for the judge.

For the third time I am going to try to post this...

When I read "difficult upbringing" I wanted to punch him in the brain. OFFENSIVE!

what a whiny loser. true, his Dad was probably a shitty father, but many people have shitty parents and don't wind up drug addicted or in jail.

Ms Cool said...

OMG - my thoughts are that he was privileged.

I HATE HATE HATE people that blame their parents for anything they did once they are an adult.

TOUCHE, Enty !

His addiction is a result of too much disposable income and zero responsibility.

Please, lots of us (most, even, in my observation?) have had not-so-great fathers and are fine.

Except we weren't also rich and spoiled.

The. Fuck?

But, what a way to stick it to dear old Dad, right?

Hey, Michael, it wasn't your fault. ADULT offspring make their own choices. And I know being addicted isn't a choice, but starting drugs IS a choice.

Maybe this was just the lawyer's idea, grasping at straws? I dunno, but way to throw your dad under the bus...

Its always someone ELSE's fault. Can't take responsibility for your own actions.

They should cut him off.

Michael Douglas had a sex addiction problem many years ago. Not the greatest role model I am sure. He improved when he aged, and settled down with the Welsh lass.

Cameron has gone down the same path as they other rich kid, Redmond O'Neill. The two of them can now share a cell and become chums in more ways than one.
