Let's face it, no matter how much they love and care about each other, families are bound to fight. But for the average feuding relatives, their lives aren't in the spotlight, on magazine covers or on Twitter (well, sometimes).
For the past few weeks the Jackson family feud has been all over the news with a series of events that's almost difficult to keep up with. First, Katherine Jackson "disappeared" prompting Paris to take to Twitter. It's later revealed she wasn't really missing at all.
If that wasn't strange enough, members of the family called for the executors of Michael Jackson's estate to resign.
Then footage of a brawl at the Jackson family compound had us all riveted. Photos of the Jacksons arguing flooded the web, reports of Janet popping Paris and snatching her phone hit the streets, the cops got called and everyone weighed in.
Well the Jacksons aren't the only family to have their share of troubles in the spotlight. We've compiled a list of other celebrity kinfolk that have also fought and found themselves subject to public scrutiny.
Check out the slideshow below and take a look at other feuding fam members.

Despite their R&B success with hits like "Rhythm of the Night" and "I Like It," the Debarge family struggled personally with a number of drug addictions, fighting and, oftentimes, losing the battle to stay clean.

In 2010, he attempted to make a return to the music scene, after his release, recording his first studio album in 16 years. But in <a href="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/music_blog/2012/03/el-debarge-arrested-on-suspicion-of-drug-possession.html" target="_hplink">March 2012</a>, he was arrested on suspicion of drug possession. <a href="http://elev8.com/490965/a-look-at-what-drug-addiction-has-done-to-the-debarge-family-video/" target="_hplink">James, Bunny and Randy Debarge</a> opened up to Dr. Drew about their struggles with addiction.
