White Reservation: The Justification of Breath and Those Who Take It Away

My day ended with news of a Michael Brown memorial tree being chopped down in less than a day of it being planted. Amidst the maelstrom and versions of justice, it's hard to breathe when even the process of photosynthesis is being interrupted.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous
When it comes to the rich and famous, there is never a shortage of headlines to feed the media's appetite. Many keep their children out of the limelight -- and for good reason. However, some children of the rich and famous make headlines of their own, and more often than not, it's for their behavior rather than their talents. Here is a list of 20 children of the rich and famous who made the news for everything from sex tapes to murder.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Maia Campbell
Family Roots: Daughter of novelist Bebe Moore Campbell and Ellis Gordon
What a Shame: Since her mother's death in 2006, Campbell has experienced a downward spiral of mental illness and substance abuse. Campbell is in serious need of intervention, and we hope she receives the help she needs.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Kim and Khloe Kardashian
Family Roots: Daughters of O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner
What a Shame: In 2007, Khloe Kardashian was arrested for DUI and sentenced to three years' probation. Judging by her mugshot, Khloe seemed unconcerned, as she smirked, probably because, well, she's rich. Also, that year, a sex tape made by big sis Kim and her former boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J, leaked to the public. The tape catapulted Kim to celebrity status.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Montana Fishburne
Family Roots: Daughter of seasoned actor Laurence Fishburne
What a shame: In July, Fishburne made headlines after announcing that she would be following in socialite Kim Kardashian's footsteps by releasing her own sex tape. We can only wonder what her father is thinking right about now.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Bobbi Kristina
Family Roots: The child of R&B legends Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown (who Houston once called the king of R&B)
What a Shame: In 2007, the once precocious Bobbi Kristina raised eyebrows when she posted suggestive pictures of herself engaging in questionable activities on her MySpace page. Thankfully, she grew out of that phase and his since avoided the limelight to just be a regular teen.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: JoJo Simmons
Family Roots: Son of hip-hop legend Joseph "Reverend Run" Simmons and Valerie Vaughn
What a Shame: In May 2009, Simmons was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of marijuana and one count of resisting arrest, when he allegedly tried to ram his BMW into a cop car. He has also been slammed with two misdemeanors for criminal use of drug paraphernalia. Since then, Simmons had steered clear of trouble.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Jamal "Shyne" Barrow
Family Roots: Son of Imeon Myvette and the Prime Minster of Belize Dean Barrow
What a Shame: Barrow didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth, as he has several times admitted to stealing and hustling as a kid. At 16, music was his escape, with his lyrical talents landing him a deal with the famous Bad Boy Records. After a nine-year stint for criminal use and possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment, Barrow, was released from jail in 2009 and has since turned his life around.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Caroline Giuliani
Family Roots: Daughter of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and television reporter and actress Donna Hanover
What a Shame: In August, Giuliani was taken into custody at a Sephora store in New York City after allegedly stealing more than $100 worth of cosmetics. This one had many of us scratching our heads. Ah, the rich and famous never cease to amaze.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Latoya Jackson
Family Roots: Joe Jackson and Katherine Jackson
What a Shame: Often labeled the black sheep of the Jackson family, Latoya released a tell-all book, called 'La Toya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family,' in 1991, in which she claimed (among other things) that the Jackson clan suffered physical and psychological abuse at the hands of their father, Joe.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Nicole Ritchie
Family Roots: Daughter of Lionel Richie and Brenda Richie
What a Shame: Before turning her life around to focus on her growing family with boyfriend and Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden, Ritchie constantly made headlines for partying and drug and alcohol abuse. In 2006, after making a splash with her gal pal Paris Hilton on the reality show 'The Simple Life,' Richie was arrested and charged with possession of heroin while driving with a suspended driver's license.
