Cameron Douglas is out of prison, getting papped & posting shirtless pics

I would like you to consider the case of Cameron Douglas, 37, who got out of prison a few weeks ago after serving seven years out of a combined nine and a half year sentence for multiple drug charges including federal drug trafficking. I remember this case because it took several charges for him to finally be sentenced to hard time, which was still quite lenient. Cameron is the only child from Michael Douglas’s first marriage, to Diandra Lewis. I’ll try not to bore you with the storied details of his drug convictions, but he got arrested for dealing meth to a federal agent at a NY hotel in 2009, during which he was found to be in possession of a half a pound of the drug. He faced a minimum of ten years in prison for that charge alone. (He was also shipping drugs cross country.) Then, while under house arrest, his girlfriend tried to slip him heroin in an electric toothbrush. He ultimately got only five years in federal prison for drug trafficking, perhaps because the judge was swayed by letters written in his behalf by his dad, his grandfather Kirk Douglas, and his stepmother, Catherine Zeta-Jones, among others. While in prison in 2011, Cameron was again caught with drugs, adding four and a half years onto his sentence. Then in 2013 in prison he tested positive for drugs again. His dad Michael Douglas was still short-sighted enough to claim that “because of his last name, he’s been made an example,” probably because Cameron faced any prison time at all.

Well now that Cameron is out of prison he’s started a public Instagram account, where he posts shirtless photos and gushes about his yoga instructor girlfriend, who even has a profile in People Magazine. These two curiously got papped out this week as well. Cameron is currently living in a halfway house and seems to be working as a model.

Cameron Douglas… was released from prison early after serving nearly seven years on drug charges. Cameron was transferred to a halfway house in Brooklyn weeks ago, and he has been spotted hitting the streets with his girlfriend, yoga instructor Viviane Thibes.

So, what has Cameron been up to following his release? Modeling! (Apparently the hot trend for former convicts.) He wrote alongside one shot of him posing in a tank top, “Dreaming big today & So grateful for it”

[From Yahoo!]

I guess if he’s a model (although Yahoo seems to be basing that solely on his pics) then it makes sense that his Instagram is public, but it’s also all due to his last name. Cameron is a prime example of celebrity offspring getting a slap on the wrist and every opportunity despite how many times they break the law. This is not a case of an addict being punished, he was dealing massive quantities of meth and subsequently got caught with drugs at least twice.

ET points out that Cameron has a large tattoo on his stomach of his dad and grandfather above the word “Timeless” in that sh*tty tattoo font. His dad’s likeness is from his role in Wall Street and Kirk Douglas’s is from The Bad and The Beautiful. If Cameron didn’t want the publicity and just wanted to let his friends and family know how he was doing he would have either made his Instagram private or used Facebook.

Page Six reports that Cameron is planning to write a book. A source told them “Cameron will talk about his struggle being the son and grandson of Hollywood icons, and then his bad decisions which led him to jail, and then solitary confinement. He is staying low-key after his release and plans to spend time with his father and mother. He believes this is a new start, and a chance at a new life.” He is staying low key, huh?

Dreaming big today & So grateful for it

    Is he one of those fakey Instagram models?

    Do Instagram models get paid?

    • OhRatz says:

      I think if he starts holding up bags of Slim Tea or those portable teeth whiteners its a clear indicator that he might be getting paid. LOL

    • angie_o717 says:

      Those eyes make me nervous… 😳

  2. Melody says:

    Thought he was Alan Tudyk just by the pic. I cared then. Now? Not so much. Go earn a soul, privileged child.

  3. Flowerchild says:

    Page Six article sounds like it came from his or his fathers PR team. I wouldn’t qualify getting pop by the paparazzi after only being out of prison for a couple of weeks and posting photos of yourself on Instagram as being staying low key.

  4. CharlotteCharlotte says:

    He looks dead behind the eyes. Terrifying.

    This p*sses me off so much. Eurgh.

    • Kitten says:

      Something is really “off” about his appearance and I’m not talking about the muscles and tattoos. His facial expressions are a really eerie combination of smug and unfeeling, self-satisfied yet completely detached. Very unnerving…

      • Aussie girl says:

        There is something off about him, I can’t put my finger on it though. It’s not helping that I’m getting a cape fear crossed with my dad’s famous and I kind of look like him, so I’m important vibes.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yup Cape Fear vibe is strong in that one. Not talking about the bad tats either. If Catherine Z–J is smart, she’ll keep her kids away from their brother.

      How can he be a model with all that body art?

  5. Esmom says:

    About 30 min ago I never would imagined saying this but I need to go back to the Scott Eastwood post for a celeb offspring palate cleanser.

  6. Suzanne says:

    This kid is definitely a spoiled, privileged snot who thinks he’s way more important to the rest of us…than he actually is. He will be right back in the slammer once he realizes he’s not the celeb his daddy and granddaddy are…and unfortunately will probably continue to spiral out of control until they find him dead. I’m hoping I’m wrong…but based on his history…I’d say I’m probably pretty close to spot on.

    • holly hobby says:

      I remember reading he was assaulted while in prison? It was bad enough he ended up in the hospital. He made an enemy somewhere and they were out to get him. Yeah I don’t see him living as old as Kirk.

  7. Naya says:

    The drug trafficking charges were legit and of course celebrity and money helped him get off easy. The drug possession charges while he was incarcerated on the other hand are bs. You have an addict in prison, its no surprise that he keeps the habit going during the darkest period of his life. The solution isnt add more time, its deal with the disease.

  8. Cee says:

    He should have been sent to rehab to serve the rest of his sentence. He is likely to keep doing drugs, and fall back on his “ways”.
    His parents are doing him no favours, but this is a grown man.

  9. Tessa says:

    I don’t normally body shame, but

  10. Creepy lineup on CB today.

  11. Jenns says:

    I’m torn on this. Because both Michael and his mother admitted to being totally absent from his life as child. He was left in the care of a revolving door of nannies. So I can see how he slipped through the cracks.

    But, he still needs to get his sh*t togetherr and realize that because of his father and grandfather, he’ll have more chances in his life than someone getting out of prison who is broke and has no family connections.

  12. stinky says:

    icky poo

  13. QQ says:

    MODELING??! WiTH THAT FACE??! !Whaaa *Princess Carolyn’s tone & Pitch of voice*

  14. Jh says:

    What an enormous dork.

  15. iseepinkelefants says:

    Oh my god I used to have the biggest crush on him when he was in the movie with his father and grandfather… Forget the name. He looks kind of dead/sad behind the eyes.

  16. LAK says:

    I find it interesting that the tattoos of his father and grandfather are of characters that are stone, cold, ruthless evil people who use and abuse everyone in their quest for money and power.

    …and both characters ultimately fail.

    • Tourmaline says:

      So true…. who the hell wants the image of Gordon Gekko permanently affixed to their upper abdomen…SMDH

    • MayCage says:

      Oh okay! Those tattoos of them make more sense than Steven Seagal (sp?). I thought that was the tattoo on the right.

      Most of those tattoos are questionable. Ewww.

  17. Christin says:

    A decade ago, a very posh-pretending co-worker claimed he was THE famous classmate of her boarding school days. I’m hoping she is keeping up with him.

    • Andrea says:

      My ex went to boarding school with Cameron. His parents talked about it with me at length too. He got contacted by the New York Post recently to tell a story about him and he declined.

  18. mire usted! says:

    Drug addiction can appear in any family. I get that. I believe Michael Douglas has a brother who died of an overdose so it can tragically run in families. But drug trafficking? Drug dealing? Inexcusable. He’s had about 5 chances more than the average citizen. To suggest the system has been harsh on sentencing his son is incorrect, foolish and dangerous for his son to listen to.

    @Cee – I agree. He should have to go straight to rehab from jail.

    I’m always so startled by the lack of direction of celebrity kids. Does Cameron have a job? A career? What? Being a DJ? Modeling tattoos? Did he go to college? His father has a net worth of over $300M. How about meaningful volunteer work? What is he contributing or giving back to society? I really hope he finds more meaning to life at 37 years old than making selfies on Instagram. First, I hope he heals. He can do it. It’s never too late. I’m really hoping he does.

  19. Kate says:

    If the crew from Jersey Shore ever gets back together, he’d fit right in.

  20. Hope says:

    He has what I call “D-bag face.” You look at him and say, that person is a d-bag.

  21. North of Boston says:

    That’s what happens when your parents pose you butt naked on the cover of Rolling Stone when you’re just a baby. Nowhere to go from there but up. Or prison.

    I hope after this flurry of public posturing he finds some balance in life and gets on with the business of living. He’s had a lot of chances and opportunities other people haven’t had, and 37 is well old enough to start figuring out how to be a grown-assed man, no matter who your parents are.

  22. MB says:

    A model?!?!
    He looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

    • Redgrl says:

      MB – at least Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys can play guitar… 😉 This guy just has weird tattoos..

    • Denise says:

      HAHAHAHAHAHA!! You’re so right. No offence to Bubbles (who was made up to look that way)

  23. Denise says:

    How many synonymns are there for ‘gross’?
