Madonna & Her Brothers
"Madonna doesn't give a shit if I'm dead or alive," Anthony Ciccone, the Material Girl's then homeless brother, told the Daily Mail in 2013. Another of her brothers, Martin—who recorded an album in the '90s in which he rapped about being raped in jail—has a better relationship with his sister: "She's getting me some new teeth." In 2008, a third brother, Christopher, published a memoir "Life With My Sister Madonna," which didn't exactly please her. "She doesn't have a clue," Christopher said, "which is kind of depressing and kind of amazing."
Kate Hudson & Her Dad
Kate Hudson was just a toddler when her mom, Goldie Hawn, divorced musician Bill Hudson in 1982, and from then on she was raised by Goldie and her longtime partner Kurt Russell. Last Father's Day, Kate Instagrammed a message to Russell: " Pa, just simply … I love you to the moon and back." In a separate post, her brother Oliver wrote, "Happy abandonment day." For Bill Hudson, it was "like a dagger to the heart." As he told the Daily Mail, "I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own. I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name."
Drew Barrymore & Her Mom
"Ugh, I mean, my relationship with my mom is so complicated," Drew Barrymore—who did rehab at 13 and became an emancipated minor two years later—told Marie Claire magazine in 2014. Even becoming a mother herself hasn't enabled Drew to repair the ongoing rift between her and Jaid Barrymore "It's the hardest subject in my life," she said. "I've never just been angry with her. I've always felt guilt and empathy and utter sensitivity. But we can't really be in each other's lives at this point."
Angeline Jolie & Her Dad
Angelina Jolie and her famous father, Jon Voight, stopped speaking in 2001 after he publicly begged his daughter to find help for her "serious mental problems." Ten years later, Voight claimed they had reconciled and added, "Being reunited with my Angie is very precious to me." Even so, the "Midnight Cowboy" star has said that he only learned of Jolie's 2013 double mastectomy and 2014 marriage to Brad Pitt from press reports.
Meg Ryan & Her Mom
First, Meg Ryan's mother, Susan Jordan, was excluded from her daughter and Dennis Quaid's 1991 wedding. Jordan later scolded her daughter in the press for having an affair with Russell Crowe. For years the two didn't speak. "I wish there would be forgiveness," Jordan told People magazine during that period, adding, "It's a painful business to be estranged from your child. … There isn't a day goes by that I don't think of Peggy and miss her."
Michael Jackson & His Dad
Michael Jackson and his father, Joe jackson, were reportedly estranged when the King of Pop died in 2009, and for good reason. In the 2003 TV special "Living with Michael Jackson," the singer recalled his father standing by with a belt in his hand when he and his brothers rehearsed. Michael added that his mother worried that Joe would beat one of the children to death. "I love my father," Jackson told Oprah Winfrey a few years later. "But I don't know him."
Liv Tyler & Her Dad
Until the age of 10, Liv Tyler was led to believe that Todd Rundgren was her father. After that "white lie" was exposed, she adopted the last name of her true rocker dad, but that apparently hasn't eliminated the distance between her and Steven Tyler. "In the past few years, we haven't been very close," she told Wonderland magazine a few years ago, adding, "I probably shouldn't be talking about this … I wish, I wish, I really wish he was around more … but he has to go through what he goes through."
Jennifer Aniston & Her Mom
Jennifer Aniston, whose parents broke up when she was 9, became estranged from her mother, actress Nancy Dow, when Mom dished about their relationship in her 1999 memoir "From Mother and Daughter to Friends." "She had a temper," Aniston told the Hollywood Reporter earlier this year. "I can't tolerate that." The "Friends" star went on to describe Dow as "very unforgiving." but added, "We're all fine." Still, she didn't invite her mother to her wedding to Justin Theroux this summer.
Tatum O'Neal & Her Dad
Ryan O'Neal vehemently denies his daughter Tatum's account of her childhood, which includes sexual molestation by family friends and drug use starting two years after she, at age 10, became the youngest Oscar winner ever (for 1973's "Paper Moon," which co-starred her dad). The veteran actor also insisted he didn't come on to her, as Tatum claimed, at his longtime partner Farrah Fawcett's funeral. Still, he admitted to Vanity Fair that he's "a hopeless father." In 2011, Ryan and Tatum made a stab at patching things up on a reality TV series that aired on OWN. In fact, Ryan later said, "We're further apart now than when we started the show."
Tatum O'Neal & Her Son
After her 1994 divorce from tennis star John McEnroe, Tatum O'Neal got hooked on heroine and lost custody of their three children. Kevin, the oldest, said he felt his mother had chosen drugs over her kids. But his perspective changed last year when he was arrested for buying cocaine and pills: "When you're really in it [addiction]," he said, "there is no way out." Since then, they have reached a new understanding. "There were years my kids didn't know if I was going to live or die," Tatum says. "Now I call Kevin every single day and I always say I am making up for lost time."
