List of celebrities whose children committed suicide, with photos. Many of these children were known for their parent's celebrity status, and their deaths are truly tragic. Famous children can have a hard time establishing a name for themselves to the media. They have tried to emerge from their parent's shadow, and have failed to become an heir to their parents' popularity. Due to this, the children born to famous parent have collapsed under domicile insecurity. Many of these kids were drug addicts and had long contemplated killing themselves. As a result of their addiction, death by drug overdose became a common behavior for these celebrity offspring. A loss of a child is irreparable and sadly these celebrities who had these poor children probably never saw it coming.
