Today's Blind Items - No More Money For The Kid

This married couple is A list. They might actually be A+ list if you are of a certain age. Academy Award nominations/wins everywhere you look. They definitely have not been getting along lately, but this blind is not about their own personal drama, but the drama surrounding one of their offspring who is hooked on meth. The couple have sent the offspring to rehab. They have tried sober companions and counseling. They have spent six figures to try and keep this one offspring sober. They have failed and the offspring is still hooked on meth and using more than ever. The couple finally cut the offspring off financially, but actually gave the offspring notice they were going to do so. They provided two months notice so they could get sober or have the time to get a job and save up for a place. Instead of doing anything proactively, the offspring kept right on with meth and reached out to friends to try and find a free place to live. It has been 19 days since they were cutoff and the offspring has spent at least a couple of nights sleeping on the street because no one wants meth smoked in their homes so have kicked the offspring out.

Beatty/Benning

Yeah the fact that it is gender neutral does lend itself to being Benning/Beatty

Benning/Beatty.

sandybrook said...

Ok fair enough didn't see any problems with those 2 though.

Tricia S said...

Only add could be Stephen or Isabel..

Kno Won Uno said...

Is alphabet rating now dependent upon the observer? Or...wut?
If so, start adding "A+ list to people under 15" on your Kardashian blinds.
+ lots Beatty/Bening

Tara said...

Why would "gender neutral" be a clue to Beatty? Stephen is a man.

Badirene said...

Just to be different (and wrong) Chet Haze, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Tricia S said...

I guessed Annette as the mom I a BI weeks ago as the one who kept her wallet hidden because kid was doing drugs etc....popular guess was Sarandon but I felt it was her

Sadie said...

Bruce and Demi

teresa crane said...

@Badirene : I love you for mentioning Chet Haze!!

Being a parent to an addict is fucking hard

I can't even imagine

crila16 said...

I'm with Tricia S.

JenSacks said...

I thought Bruce and Demi too, but no Oscar nods there.

Best of luck to whoever it is...Drug addiction is a bitch.

Count Jerkula said...

Kid will be dead on in jail in another 2 months.

Basil said...

Oh boy. This must be tough for the parents. I feel for them. And yeah, it sounded like Beatty/Benning.

Seven of Eleven said...

The "gender neutral" clue is because Stephen identifies as "a gay trans man for whom both identities are important", and hates Chaz Bono.

All Lace no Leather said...

I thought Stephen Beatty was in college? I don't think the gender neutral points to him. I think it's Enty's way of keeping it open for son or daughter.


Princess Nobody said...

Stephen Beatty with the beginning of meth face

Shelly Shell said...

I thought Bennings & Beatys trans son was away at college, he supposed to be really active in the LGBT community.

NYCBRATGIRL said...

Stephen is at Sarah lawrence in westchester. No way this is about him

Topper Madison said...

@Princess Are you sure that isn't just zits?

But what's up with the massive neck bruise?

sugarbread maker said...

Used to be a girl though

When kids are super spoiled entitled from the day they are born, hard to change.

Cheryl said...

Maybe I'm behind, but I thought that Stephen was having doubts about transitioning. Ay any rate, I think they have four kids and this doesn't necessarily point to Stephen.

SkittleKitty said...

On the Bening / Beatty train. They have four kids. Stephen seemed to be doing pretty well (in college as of three years ago-may have graduated), so I hope it's not him.
Perhaps another of their kids.
That's a lot on these parents: first accepting (hopefully) your child is gay and trans, plus a meth-addicted child. Yikes.
And before anyone jumps: I mean that the realization your child's life will be harder due to his / her differences from others.

figgy said...

I too thought of Bening and Beatty immediately.

I know we are supposed to feel sorry for addicts but sorry, I don't. People know damn well the moment they start using that it is addictive. I'm sick of all the excuses for bad behavior.

Yoj said...

Feeling so utterly helpless is a nightmare for parents.

Aeol said...

Also not married.

Stephen is pretty together, and no that doesn't look like a meth face. just a primple and a neck bruise.

Princess Nobody said...

I found Stephen's twitter and he has an acne problem so I retract the meth face link. That was mean and I apologize.

Sherry said...

Not sure if the right one has been guessed yet if Stephen is still in school. Maybe one of the other kids?

Darius Carter said...

Meth is big in the gay community so it's probably Stephen.

auntliddy said...

Bad-my guess to. Theur son has been in rehab and specisl school for addicts since he's like 15 or so. I yjought he was doing well. But they came to my mind immediately.

auntliddy said...

Count, unfortunatly u are correct. Lost my 42yr old nephew to meth last christmas. Got out of jail and od-ed next day. If youre not an addict, be soooo thankful.

Could be m to f. Hormones.

Nipple said...

I follow Stephen on instagram and its been 54 weeks since his last post but I don't think its him.

Nipple said...

I hope it isnt him. What a waste.

MotherMia said...

My daughter went to Northwestern with Chet. He was considered odd. Idk if he graduated

Seven of Eleven said...

I googled him and laughed my head off at Jensen Kirk needling him on Twitter. Chet Haze is Tom Hanks' son and a rapper who talks in rap slang.

"U went to private school & talk like French Montana. Even saying "swagger" should be illegal for a kid raised in Brentwood

And there's this from Haze's Facebook page:

‘is a multitalented singer, songwriter and actor who feels most at home when he’s performing. Born in 1990 to actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Chet was practically raised to be in the spotlight— something he thanks God for everyday.’

Practically raised to be in the spotlight, bahaha!

Yoj said...

@Seven of Eleven
The Academy needs to add a clause: raise a brat and you have to hand in your Oscar.

__-__=__ said...

Based on janna's comment I have to agree it's Chet. Read somewhere about Tom spending lots of money to pay off Chet's rape victims. Guy has no conscience. He's rotted his brain.

Henriette said...

Benning/Beatty have four kids, so it could be any of the other three.

Nipple said...

Thats not meth face. Those are zits.

sugarbread maker said...

@7 he and kenDull or Whyme would make a great pair non??

ShanKat said...

It's Stephen Ira Beatty.

KSierra said...

My sympathy to whomever the parents are. My first thought was "Chet Haze", how did HE come from Tom Hanks? smdh. But tweakers, sooner or later, they die. I know personally,aka meth-heads, they rarely conquer their addiction. My ex, he did meth and crack. Long story short, the 8th anniversary of his death is TODAY. He was 38 years old. :'''(

Bitca said...

Stephen sounds too together, intelligent, & confident to fall into meth, based on the story Seven linked (& the target meth market seems closer to the old crack customer base; Sarah Lawrence kids are surely more into grass, liquor, adderall abuse, E, etc).

Re the Twitter absence: as the article's from '11, he could be seeking a writing job, or gearing up for grad school, but I doubt he'd want to endure the stress of living w/mom & dad again. Also a meth/amphetamine user is more likely to overdo Twitter, not be absent from it--& in my experience activists tend to be too tight-assed to lose control to addiction.

PS: Chaz sounds like a major jerk, based on the comments quoted in the story (no wonder his gf dumped him. He needs to read Kate Bornstein's terrific autobiog & wise up).
