John Mcenroe vows to help his troubled son. Tennis legend’s twenty seven year old son had been arrested and given a charge of drug offenses. Kevin MCEnroe’s mother is actress Tatum O’Neal and he had been stopped and talked to by police on Tuesday night, July 15, 2014 as he was allegedly making a drug transaction.
He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance before being released without bail, and now his famous father has pledged his support.
A statement from MCEnroe reads,
“The entire MCEnroe family is extremely upset with regard to recent developments about Kevin MCEnroe. This is a private matter and his entire family will do everything we can to support Kevin as he works through his issues at this very difficult time.”
O’Neal has also publicly backed her son, and the actress also had her share of past addiction issues, posted family snaps on her Twitter.com page after the arrest, adding a picture of herself with Kevin alongside the message,
“Addiction is a disease. Not a moral issue. Support, empathy, love.”
