It's no secret that several celebrities have struggled with addiction, but many famous actors, actresses, and musicians were raised by parents who were addicted to drugs and alcohol. Some of these celebrities live sober lives because of the substance abuse that they witnessed growing up, while others were propelled into their own addictions.

Who is the most famous person who is the child of an addict? Lindsay Lohan tops our list. Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael, has been addicted to drugs and alcohol in the past. In 2004, he was arrested for DUI. Charlize Theron's father was an abusive alcoholic. Her mother killed her father in self-defense when Theron was a teen.

Several famous men also grew-up with addicted parents. ´╗┐Charlie Sheen is known to have struggled with addiction, but his father, Martin Sheen, struggled with alcoholism. Eminem has stated that his mother abused prescription drugs. Other famous people who are the children of addicts include Halle Berry, Shia LaBeouf, and Kelly Osbourne.
