Leif Garrett is widely known as a 70’s teen heartthrob. Since then, Garrett’s legal troubles have stalked him since the morning he crashed his motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and Quaalude. The car crash eventually left his buddy disabled and also lost Garrett $7.1 million resulting from a negligence legal case.
Since then, Garrett has been thrown in jail several times and been to rehab several times also. His illegal drugs of choice stemming from his arrests appear to be heroin and cocaine. Battling the addiction has been hard on him yet his professional life has not suffered much because of the addiction. His career has been in full force, although it did slow after 2000 as he has become older. He joined the other celebrities of Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Jason Wahler and exposed the show for requesting him to use drugs so they could film his habits. Leif stated that it took little effort or convincing for him to agree to use for the crew.
