Barbra Streisand Abandons Homeless Son at Christmas?
She might have just been recently honored by the President for being an outstanding American, but Barbra Streisand definitely isn't going to be taking home any sort of Mother of the Year award. According to the latest gossip news updates, the iconic Hollywood superstar has virtually abandoned her step-son, Jess, despite it being the holiday season. Word has it that Babs and her husband, James Brolin, offer the homeless 43-year-old support from time to time, but obviously not enough to keep him from having to resort to spending Thanksgiving this year at a California soup kitchen.
During the recent Medal of Freedom Ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama acknowledged Barbra Streisand for her unparalleled contribution to the arts over her 50-plus-year career -- joking that he felt a little overwhelmed just thinking about all she had accomplished (via People):
"She has collected just about every honor and award that there is -- I couldn't believe she hadn't gotten this one.
"Off the stage, she has been a passionate advocate for issues like heart disease and women's equality. I'm getting all verklempt just thinking about it."
Despite her many accomplishments in the entertainment business, Streisand is accused of being a less than stellar mother to her middle aged stepson, Jess.
One source in the latest December 28, issue of Star magazine claims that Barbra and her husband have all but turned their backs on Jess, who reportedly spent his Thanksgiving eating at a free soup kitchen instead of Babs $100 million Malibu mansion:
"Jess has his issues, but he is still family.
"It just shows the type of people they are."
What do you think about Barbra Streisand reportedly allowing one of her husband's kids to remain homeless?
Should she use her outrageous wealth and influence to help Jess no matter what?
Or, is it likely that Babs and James have some very good reasons for keeping their distance -- holidays of not?
