Most people will not sympathize with them because they have all the money to make their problems go away.
While it may be true that celebrities are rich, that does not mean their struggles are any less. In fact, the pressure may be greater because their lives are in the public eye. When they make a mistake, people from all over the country (or world!) will certainly know about it.
The truth is, there is a lot of pressure to live up to a great public image. This is probably why a lot of famous celebrities succumb to all sorts of addiction.
It may be hard for them to get professional help because it will most certainly be in the news the next day. But for some of those who were brave enough to face their addiction and get help, we salute them. We have lost too many famous celebrities battling with all sorts of addiction.
We certainly hope that all celebrities battling with addiction will find the strength to get themselves better.
