For those of you old enough to remember, Dana Plato was the epitome of a child star that had serious problems ever adjusting to being an adult. The former star of Different Strokes ended up hooked on drugs, did really bad porn, served time in jail, and eventually committed suicide when she was in her mid 30's. When she died she left behind a son. Her son killed himself last week, two days prior to the anniversary of his mom's death. He was 25.
Apparently every year at this time, Tyler Lambert would battle severe depression and this year was no different. This time though he went on an alcohol and drug binge and ended up killing himself.
I hope he and his mom have been reunited. Very, very sad.
