Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Tragic early end for Hollywood scion and JFK nephew who battled drug addiction!

Christopher Lawford — nephew of John F. Kennedy and the son of Peter Lawford and Patricia Kennedy — has died at the age of 63 after a life spent overcoming addiction. The tragic scion had a sporadic Hollywood career, including a role in 2003’s “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,” but had also found fame as a showbiz correspondent on “EXTRA.” Lawford also had success as an author with the book “Symptoms of Withdrawal,” whicih was a memoir about his own battles with drug and alcohol. That included his early years struggling as a junkie alongside his cousins Bobby and David Kennedy. “Heroin was four dollars a bag,” Chris had recalled, “and you could get high on three bags. That wasn’t a lot of money, but we were high school kids with very little cash.” And in a tragic twist, Chris also revealed how his famous father had encouraged his marijuana and cocaine use after he moved to Hollywood at 18 years old!
