While most of us will be celebrating this holiday with our loving dads these celebrity fathers should not be expecting a card anytime soon.
He is best known for making $100 million when Vitamin Water was sold to Coco-Cola. Unfortunately, he became known for his parenting tactics as well. The drama began last year when he tried to visit his son Marquise, 17 and Rader Online released the texts he sent, “I will have nothing to do with you. Don’t text me ever again.” And I thought breakup texts were rude! It has also been reported that he ditched his sons’ graduation this past May.
No one can forget those statements this dad/former manger said about Jessica Simpson, 33, “Jessica never tries to be sexy. … She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double D’s!” While most dads want to remember their daughters as little girls, Joe Simpson seemed to look at his daughter with uncanny realism.
The one time manger that helped create the mega star we call Beyoncé definitely did not make success with being a father. Matthew Knowles is father to Beyoncé, 32, Solange, 27 and Nixon, 4. Beyoncé mysteriously dropped her father as her longtime manger in 2011 but soon after it was discovered he father a child outside of his marriage to Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles. This extra martial affair has played out in court, from paternity suites to child support.
We can’t talk about bad fathers without mentioning the infamous Charlie Sheen. He is father to Cassandra, 29, Sam, 10, Lola, 8, twins Bob and Max, 4. The custody battle is ongoing with his latest ex-wife regarding the twins, not over him gaining custody but only contesting that she should not have custody either! I assume Charlie Sheen thinks he is ‘winning’ still.
Ludacris is famous for his role in the successful Fast and Furious franchise. This past year it was discovered he cheated on his longtime girlfriend and fathered a daughter. Child support documents filed claimed he could not afford the child support and petitioned to gain full custody of the child, who at the time was 4 months. Sorry to tell you Ludacris but filing for custody of a newborn to avoid paying child support puts you in the category of worst father of the year. The judge dropped the case and ordered Ludacris to begin child support payments.
