Leif Garrett is best known as a 70’s teen heartthrob. However, Garrett’s legal issues have followed him around from the day this individual destroyed his vehicle while driving intoxicated and Quaalude. The car accident left his friend disabled and lost Garrett $7.1 million due to a negligence lawsuit.
Ever Since, Garrett has been arrested many times and been to rehab several times too. His drugs of choice stemming from his arrests seem to be heroin and cocaine. Fighting the addiction has been hard on him yet his professional life has not been penalized because of the addiction. His career has been consistent, but it did slow after 2000 as he has become older. He was included in the other celebrities of Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Jason Wahler and exposed the show for asking him to use illegal substances so they could film him. Leif admitted that it did not take much convincing for him to agree to use for the show.
