Not all celebrities have as great relationships with their parents as Beyoncé and Tina Knowles or like Bradley Cooper and his mom Gloria Campano. It's not uncommon for celebs to have fallouts with their loved ones, and it doesn't seem to make any difference whether they come from a long line of famous people or if they're the first celebrity in the family.
When coming from a famous family or a long line of performers, their lives have been in the public eye since the moment they were born, and both good news and bad news about their family will make headlines. Even the faintest whiff of bad blood between family members will find its way to the tabloids, which certainly won't make the situation any easier to deal with for those involved. Here are some famous people who hate their celeb parents.
20 Ireland Baldwin
Ireland Baldwin is a fashion model and an actress. She's also the daughter of the famous acting pair, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. The 30 Rock star famously called his daughter a "rude, thoughtless little pig" in a voicemail that went public. Ireland has several times talked about her body image issues, much of which stemmed from the way her father has spoken to her.
19 Brooke Hogan
Hulk Hogan, arguably the most famous professional wrestler of all-time, had his own reality show, Hogan Knows Best, where he appeared together with his family. They were depicted as being tight-knit but when her parents divorced things between Brooke and her mother Linda, became difficult. This was mostly due to her mother’s decision to become romantically linked to a guy who was many, many years her junior.
18 Kate Hudson
Actress Kate Hudson grew up in a family of famous people, her mother is Goldie Hawn and her long-time father figure is Kurt Russell.

Bill walked out on his family, which led to his kids resenting him.
17 Christian Slater

16 Ashley Judd
Ashley Judd has had a rocky relationship with her mother, Naomi Judd, for a long time. It became especially troublesome after Ashley wrote in her 2011 memoir of childhood sexual abuse and neglect she suffered growing up. The publication of that memoir, titled All That is Bitter and Sweet, cemented the rift. Ashley wrote that she suffered from incest and abuse, with her finger pointed directly at her mother.
15 Lindsay Lohan
Lohan is another star that was big enough to actually make her family minor celebrities. Lindsay had a difficult relationship with her mom Dina, and she has made several negative statements about her. However, it's her dad, Michael, she really has trouble with - going as far as to record a song about how he's treated her. Apparently, he viewed her as a commodity to give him fame and fortune.
14 Kim, Kylie, And Kendall

11 Frances Bean Cobain

7 Rob Kardashian
Rob Kardashian, the only son of Kris Jenner, has some serious issues with most members of his family and harbors a lot of resentment.
