Celebrities Who've Been Betrayed By Friends And Family
We wish life was all sunshine and roses, but sometimes things turn sour. Take a look at these eight stars who've been sadly let down by those they thought they could trust.
1. Ryan Reynold's friend sold pictures of his newly-born daughter to the press.
The actor recently celebrated the birth of his first child with his wife Blake Lively. After only sharing the first intimate photos of his daughter James with his closest friends, he soon discovered that one of his closest friends growing up has sold the pictures for money to the media. The 39-year-old described it as "a slightly dark period… it was like one of those devastating things to find out."
2. Beyonce Knowles's dad Matthew has also been accused of stealing money from her through her shows.
He used to be her manager, but after splits have sadly since appeared in the Knowles family. We all know that you should never ask a woman her age, but Mr Knowles recently went public saying his daughter is the "exact same age" as P!nk and Usher on radio station Power 105.1. Rather than the 34-years-old that Bey claims she is. this would make her 36 or 37. Eeek!
3. Jennifer Aniston's mother Nancy Dow wrote a tell-all book about her daughter.
The 'Friends' actress was betrayed by mother back in 1996. Nancy Dow gave interviews and wrote a tell-all book about the 46-year-old star. So much for always being able to rely on mum. Picture: Getty
4. Jude Law was sadly betrayed by "an immediate family member".
'The Holiday' actor believed that he was part of the infamous phone hacking scandal by Rupert Murdoch's now obsolete paper 'News of the World', though in reality he had actually been betrayed by a family member and his phone hadn’t in fact been hacked at all. Law originally said: “I wasn’t aware of that.”
5. Rihanna's dad sold stories to the press about her rocky relationship with Chris Brown.
Rhi Rhi was left feeling betrayed by her father after he spoke to the media about her turbulent relationship with then-boyfriend Chris Brown. The 'Stay' singer's father reportedly sold his story to the press without even asking how Rihanna was first. Poor lamb.
6. Angelina Jolie's father Jon Voigt claimed she had "mental health problems".
The claims by the 'Lara Croft' actresses' father came in relation to the breakdown of her first marriage to Billy Bob Thornton. The comments sadly slowed down the adoption process of her son Maddox, but luckily these were disregard by the adoption agency in the end.
7. Macaulay Culkin's accused his father of allegedly been taking his money.
The 'Home Alone' actor's father allegedly siphoned off funds that rightly belonged to his son. Kit Culkin helped start his son's career when he was just 4-years-old, but things later sadly turned sour between the two who are rumoured to no longer be speaking.
8. TLC's manager reportedly cheated them out of a huge percentage of their revenue.
The 90s girl group may have been hugely popular with fans, but the band members themselves may not have seen all the money they were originally owed. The groups manager, Pebbles, apparently refused to let them see their original contracts and reportedly cheated them out of a lot of their rightful earnings. She eventually sold the group the name ‘TLC’ for $1 million per letter. Yowza!
