Celebrities who took their parents to court\r\n\r\n1.Macaulay Culkin\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe child star was shown pining for his parents in the Home Alone series. In real life though, control over his $17 million fortune was caught in the middle of his parents' divorce battle. However, while still a minor, he sued for sole control and won.\r\n\r\n2.Kobe Bryant\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis one wasn't about the basketball superstar's fortune, but rather, his memorabilia, which was also worth a pretty penny. He alleged that his mother cut a deal to sell all of his old stuff before he was a star, including high school jerseys, prizes and books.\r\n\r\n3.Gary Coleman\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nAnother child star like Culkin, Coleman shot to fame playing Arnold Jackson in hit 80s TV series Different Strokes. In real life, he took his folks to court to the tune of $1.3 million, claiming financial mismanagement.\r\n\r\n4.Drew Barrymore\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nShe knew fame from the time she was a child and was independent from her teen years. Seeking more control over her life, she sued her folks in order to gain total control over her finances, bought her own place and hasn't looked back since.\r\n\r\n5.LeAnn Rimes\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHer father dipped into a then 17-year-old Rimes' (she rose to stardom at age 13) fortune, reportedly spending $7 million on himself before she sued him for this wrongdoing and won back the money, plus extras.\r\n\r\n6.Scarlett Johansson\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nJohansson 'fired' her mother Melanie Sloan for allegedly having a hand in financial fraud and misappropriation of Johansson's funds. Apparently, her mother was earning income off deals she had made using Scarlett's money.\r\n\r\n7.Leighton Meester\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nMeester got her taste of fame in Gossip Girl, but found out that her mother Constance also wanted a piece of the pie. She filed a lawsuit against her mother for allegedly using money she had sent for her brother's medical bills, for herself.\r\n\r\n8.Shirley Temple\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis is yet another example of a child star who was financially exploited by her parents. At one point by the age of 22, she reportedly only had $44,000 to her name despite earning $10,000 a week in her prime.
