10 Child Athlete Stars That Couldn't Cut It As An Adult

"What you talkin' 'bout Willis?"

With the death of Gary Coleman—arguably the most successful of the stars of the '80s TV show, Diff'rent Strokes (because he did not indulge in enough drugs, sexual deviance, or the gamut of other extra-curricular activities known to his cohorts)—we remember Gary (those of us which even are old enough to remember the show) with names from present, past, and future.

Here are the ground rules for inclusion in this hall of shame presentation:

1. You can be famous as an adult and can be a professional but ended up failing in real life.

2. Drugs, crime, and ignorance are all fair game.

Just set the record straight—before the controversy starts—everybody deserves a second chance and those named here may be currently getting chances at redemption but they have so far shown that they cannot handle the responsibility of being an adult (if they are still alive).
