Back in 2009, the life of Michael Douglas’ son, Cameron Douglas, took a detour on Charlie Sheen Blvd. A then 30-year-old Cameron Douglas was arrested for selling meth. A week after he was arrested, the situation got worse for Cameron after his girlfriend attempted to smuggle a care package of heroin into the jail he was in. The next year, Cameron was sentenced to five years in jail for selling meth and he got an extra two years after he confessed to getting his girlfriend to smuggle drugs in. But Cameron’s time on the inside has come to an end. Page Six says Cameron, now 37, was recently released early from a jail in Maryland. He is currently living in a halfway house.
Page Six says that Cameron plans on writing a tell-all about being in jail. An Orange is the New Daddy’s Black Card, if you will. And it should be interesting, considering Cameron’s time in jail was kind of a scary mess. Cameron was accidentally exposed as a snitch by his therapist during a 2010 bail hearing, which prompted a crime-family captain to allegedly put a $100 bounty on his head. I guess someone got $100 deposited into their commissary account, because Cameron showed up to the jail hospital not too long after looking tore up and with a broken femur and finger (which he claims he broke playing handball in the yard). He was eventually moved to solitary confinement in 2012, where he lived until 2014.
Michael Douglas also talked about Cameron’s shitty life in jail after accepting an Emmy in 2013 for playing Liberace by saying that he wasn’t allowed to see his son until they released him from solitary. He also side-eyed the American prison system.
A source tells Page Six that Cameron’s tell-all will also tell-all about “his struggle being the son and grandson of Hollywood icons.” Obviously Cameron had a hard time growing up as Michael Douglas’ son. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone would be able to crawl out of the kind of shadow cast by your father starring with legendary Hollywood goddess Kathleen Turner in one of the most not-at-all cheesy adventures set to celluloid, The Jewel of the Nile.
