Angelina Jolie and her dad Jon Voight have had one of the most famous feuds in Hollywood. Even though their decade-long estrangement supposedly ended in 2011, Voight says he only learned of his daughter’s double-mastectomy last year like the rest of us – by reading it online. And he wasn't invited to her wedding to Brad Pitt either!
When it comes to being in the middle of family feuds Brad Pitt got some practice with his first wife, Jennifer Aniston, who didn’t even invite her mom Nancy Dow to their wedding. The “Friends” star reportedly made up with her mother back in 2011 after Dow suffered a stroke.

Leighton Meester’s feud with mom Constance has gotten very messy over the years. In 2011 the Gossip Girl’s mother claimed her daughter had promised to give her $10,000 a month for the rest of her life.

“No one likes to be thought of as the Wicked Witch.” That’s what Candy Spelling said in June 2014 interview with Oprah about her “infamous feud” with her daughter, Tori.

In 2013 Mark Evans told the “Daily Mail” about the singer Adele: “I’m not interested in her celebrity status or her money, I just want my daughter back, and I want to be a proper granddad to the little one.” The pop star allegedly stopped speaking to her dad after he opened up about their rocky relationship in a 2011 interview.
In an interview with MLive.com this summer Debbie Mathers had a message for her famous son, Eminem: “Life is short. Come here, Mama wants a hug.” Mathers fell out with the rapper in 2001 when she sued him for defamation for his negative portrayal of her in songs like “My Name Is” and “My Mom.”
Speaking about her relationship with her mother Jaid, Drew Barrymore told Marie Claire this year: “We can’t really be in each other’s lives at this point.” The actress has frequently spoken about her fractured relationship with her mom, from whom she became emancipated when she was just 15. “My relationship with my mom is complicated,” she told the magazine.
It seems that every time Charlie Sheen goes through a rocky patch he and his father Martin butt heads. Most recently, in 2011, the “Anger Management” star told his dad to “shut it” after the elder actor compared his son’s addiction fight to cancer. Charlie told Radar at the time: “OK, Pop walk through a cancer ward right now and find any of those mother**kers who look like me.”
“I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much.” That’s what Demi Lovato told the New York Daily News in 2009 about her dad, Patrick, who had battled substance abuse for many years.

Years before it was alleged that Demi Moore’s three daughters distanced themselves from her, the actress was estranged from her own mother Virginia Guyne.

Kate Hudson calls her mom’s partner Kurt Russell “Dad,” and that’s partly because she is estranged from her biological father Bill Hudson. Kate once told Vanity Fair that Bill – Goldie Hawn’s ex-husband – “doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall.”
Tatum and Ryan O’Neal
Before Angie Jolie and Jon Voight, Tatum and Ryan O’Neal were probably the most well known father and daughter at loggerheads in Hollywood.

Susan Jordan once said of her famous daughter Meg Ryan: “The image Meg has of the innocent, dizzy girl-next-door could not be further from the truth. In real life, she’s a cold-hearted, cruel manipulator.” Hmm, no love lost between those two then.
Her mother wrote a memoir about their relationship that her agent called a work of “vicious fiction,” and her own father thinks she may have been responsible for her husband, Kurt Cobain’s death.

In 2013 Christopher Lovett made a desperate plea – via Star magazine – to reconnect with his daughter Kelly Rowland whom he hasn’t seen since he split with her mom when the 33-year-old was seven.
