In 2007, O’Neal was arrested for assaulting his son Griffin in Malibu, but the charges were dropped. Then when the authorities did a probation check on his other son Redmond, they found Ryan’s meth, and ordered him to awareness classes.
Oh, and at his longtime partner Farrah Fawcett’s funeral, he didn’t recognize his own daughter Tatum and hit on her. Good dude?
John Phillips was in the Mamas and the Papas. He had somesubstance abuse issues, and evidently some broader psychological issues as well, as he had sex with his 19 year-old daughter Mackenzie. But to be fair, he had been getting her high since he injected her with cocaine when she was 11, so it was the logical next step in their relationship. He slept with her frequently enough that it became a consensual relationship that lasted ten years.
The good news is that he died in 2001.
I’m not sure that Joe Simpson is inherently a bad dude, but he’s such an ass that it’s hard to distinguish. Simpson has managed to shoehorn himself into virtually every aspect of his daughters’ (Jessica and Ashleeeeeeeee) careers, despite being a complete moron.
While being a shitty manager isn’t a crime, being a jackass dad that blurs the line should be, as quotes like this evidence:
“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! You can’t cover those suckers up!
