Sometimes, you wonder: If you can’t trust your parents, who can you trust?
That must be what High School Musical actor Chris Warren, Jr
is now asking himself after finding out his parents have stolen a huge
chunk of his earnings. According to TMZ,
Warren filed a lawsuit against his parents, actress Brook Kerr and
Christopher Warren, Sr., for stealing the money he earned as a minor. He
says it was created for him in 2001 and they’ve allegedly been taking
from it the entire time.
Warren says in the lawsuit that he has been paying into that account
for years but when he wanted to finally make a withdrawal in 2011 (he
was 21 then), his parents would not let him access the account. After
finally backing them into a corner, Warren says his parents admitted to
taking money for their personal use.
They allegedly won’t tell him how much they took and he doesn’t know how much is in currently left in the account.

If Warren’s mother looks familiar to you it’s because she played Whitney in NBC’s soap opera Passions. She’s also been seen in countless other small roles – all of which would have produced her own money.
She and the senior Warren are currently in the midst of a narsty
divorce after having been married for 22 years. She was 16 when the
younger Warren was born. It has gotten so ugly that there have been
restraining orders put in place to keep the older Warren from Kerr and
At this point, there has been no response from either parent.
This is really disgusting. This young man is now 23 and still has no
answers from the people who were supposed to be looking out for him from
the “Hollywood vultures.” Hopefully, they didn’t fully deplete the
account and maybe he’ll be able to get some of the money back.
If you had a child in Hollywood, would you want to manage them or
would you hire someone else but keep your eyes on everything going on?
