There are many perks to being the child of a celebrity. The assumed wealth for one (if your parent knows how to save you’ll hit the jackpot), and of course, the many open opportunities that can become available to you: good schools, contacts to break into the business with, etc. But many a celebrity kid has chosen to take advantage of their opportunities and the names of their people in a negative way–see Montana Fishburne for the best and worst example. But others do work, good work, and slowly but surely step out of their parent’s shadow, use the name well, and make a name for themselves–now see the Marley children and Romeo (not so lil’ anymore) for a great example. Here’s just a short list of other black celebrity offspring who ditched the scandal for some success.
