7 Celebrities Who Grew Up In Shelters And Foster Families
Parents are everything for the child. Unfortunately, loose morality sometimes makes the children lack motherly love and struggle hard to achieve success in life.
Hollywood actor and talented musician Jamie Foxx wasn’t born into a very prosperous family. Soon after his birth, the boy was adopted by his grandparents, his mother's parents. Jamie sometimes saw his father and mother, but they took hardly any part in raising him as child.
The legendary woman and icon of Chanel’s style grew up with her father and four sisters and brothers until 11. Their mother died during childbirth. When the father left his children, they were sent to a Catholic orphanage for upbringing. Fortunately, Gabriel (Coco’s birth name) found another passion there – sewing.
The life story of the brilliant Hollywood actor is like a movie script. Up to 37, he didn’t know that his mother was actually his grandmother, and his sister was his biological mother. She gave birth to him at an early age, and her mom decided it would be better for everybody.
Eric Clapton, like Jack Nicholson, didn’t know that his sister was actually his mother, and his mom was his granny. His biological parents were Patricia, 16, and Edward, a 24-year-old soldier who was sent to war before Eric was born. A few years later, his biological mother married and moved to Germany, leaving Eric with his grandparents.
Marilyn Monroe was incredibly successful, but inside, she always remained unhappy. The childhood of little Norma Jeane was full of trials. The girl never knew her father, and her mother couldn’t cope with raising her daughter alone. Norma was sent to a temporary foster family, where she lived until the age of 7. Then her mother took her back, but after a while, she was diagnosed with a serious mental illness. Norma was returned to the child services facility, where her mother's friend soon took her. However, she also turned out to be a stranger there, so young-Marilyn was assigned to an orphanage.
The future boxer was born into a dysfunctional family. His father left home before Mike was born. Tyson was a troubled teenager, participating in robberies and committing petty theft. At the age of 13, he was assigned to a special school for juvenile delinquents. He seriously fell in love with physical education lessons, particularly boxing. Tyson’s fans should probably be thankful to his coach, who noticed the future champion and showed him the right direction.
Ray lived in a foster family since 6 months old. He didn’t know anything about his biological parents and, at a mature age, decided to find them. He hired private detectives who helped him learn something about his background. It turned out that his mom had Scottish roots, while Ray had a sister, five stepsisters, and a stepbrother.
