She's not the only celeb mom struggling with addiction.


Oscar winner and mother of three Tatum O'Neal, who chronicled her recovery from drug addiction in a shocking memoir, was arrested on Sunday night for buying crack cocaine. According to the Daily News, O'Neal first told police she was "doing research for a part" and changed her story after police searched her and found a bag of crack, a bag of regular cocaine and an unused crack pipe. It's being reported she was driven back to drugs after the recent death of her beloved dog.

"I've been clean for a long time," the Daily News reported her as telling police. "Today was the first time I was relapsing, but you guys saved me. Can you let me go?"

O'Neal was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, police said. Her arrest comes eight months after she publicly warned Britney Spears to seek "recovery and get her disease of addiction together."

Unfortunately, she's not alone on the road of celebrity moms who have battled addiction.
