Leif Garrett is best known as a 1970’s teenage idol. Since then, his legal problems have stalked him since the evening this individual destroyed his car while driving intoxicated and Quaalude. The vehicle accident left his best friend disabled and lost Garrett $7.1 million as a result of a negligence legal case.
Since then, Garrett has been arrested several times and been to rehab several times too. His substances of choice related to his arrests appear to be heroin and cocaine. Beating the addiction has been hard on him yet his job has not suffered much due to the addiction. His career has been consistent, although it did slow after 2000 as he has gotten older. He joined the cast of Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Jason Wahler and exposed the program for asking him to use drugs so they could record him. Leif has said that it did not take much convincing for him to agree to use for the crew.
