    Why Pierce Brosnan had to walk away from troubled Love Island star son Chris – after heroin addiction left him in a coma

    HE’S a huge Hollywood name – and was once one of the most lusted after men in the world thanks to his starring role in James Bond.But Pierce Brosnan’s family life has been plagued with tragedy – having lost both his first wife and daughter to ovarian cancer.Pierce Brosnan was once very close to his filmmaker son ChrisCredit: Rex FeaturesChris has been spotted looking very dishevelled, 19 years after his adopted dad cut him offCredit: BackGridChris starred in the original series of Love Island in 2005Credit: RexPierce, 71, found love again with his second wife Keely Shaye Smith, but more heartache was to come when his son Chris went into a downward spiral of cocaine and heroin abuse.The actor was left powerless to help as Love Island star Chris’ drug addiction led to multiple arrests and he even fell into a coma following an overdose.Pierce eventually cut him off for refusing to kick the drugs – a decision the actor found “painful,” having been a doting adopted father to him and his sister Charlotte, who tragically died in 2013.This weekend, filmmaker Chris, now 51, was seen shopping in London, looking unrecognisable from his Love Island days, with long, dishevelled hair.READ MORE SHOWBIZ FEATURESPsychologist Jo Hemmings fears there’s a way back for Pierce and Chris, after a rift lasting 19 years.She says: “I think it’s really sad that they’re estranged. “It’s been almost 20 years, that they’ve had any proper communication, and I think that’s an incredibly long time to actually get back together in any sense at all.”It would take a real crisis for Chris to accept Pierce reaching out and I don’t think Chris would do it himself.”Most read in CelebrityWe reveal the turbulent relationship which “tested the family” and drove Pierce to walk away from his son…’I became Dad’Pierce met Chris’ mum Cassandra Harris at the house of a mutual friend, in 1977.She was married to Dermot Harris – brother of the late Harry Potter star Richard Harris – at the time, and had two children, Chris and Charlotte.Pierce, then 24, arrived in bicycle clips and slicked back hair looking “ridiculous” but was “bowled over by the beauty” of the sophisticated actress, five years his senior.Pierce adopted Chris and Charlotte when their father Dermot Harris diedCredit: Rex FeaturesHis wife Cassandra (second from left) got ovarian cancer in 1987Credit: Getty – ContributorPierce became a single dad of threeCredit: Rex FeaturesHe’ll be a knockout’ – Family pride as Pierce Brosnan takes on role of legendary Irish boxing trainer in new movieThe couple went on to marry, two years after her 1978 divorce, and in 1986, when their dad passed away, Pierce adopted Charlotte, then 15, and Chris, 14.Despite not being their biological father, Pierce saw them as his own.”We just clicked as a family,” Pierce once said. “To begin with I was Pierce, then I was Daddy Pierce, and then I just became Dad. Charlotte and Chris have just been amazing in my life.”When baby Sean arrived in 1983, the family seemed complete but happiness was short-lived for the devoted couple.In 1987, just a year after Dermot died, Cassie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer and the children faced losing a second parent.The 43-year-old actress passed away in December 1991, close to the couple’s 11th wedding anniversary, in what Pierce called “the longest night of my life.”Pierce was lying by her side in a hospital bed as she passed away and he later told People magazine: “I was in a helpless state of…confusion and anger. She was comforting me.”He added: “She has made me the man I am, the actor I am, the father I am.”She’s forever embedded in every fibre of my being. She’s there with me every day. I was so blessed to have met someone like that.”Christopher was just 19 when he lost his his mum and Pierce told People: “I can see the pain in Christopher’s eyes, the absence in his heart for his mother.”Downwards drug spiralPierce met Keely Shaye Smith in 1994 and found love againCredit: Getty – ContributorBut Chris went into a downward spiral and was arrested on numerous occasionsCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdPierce’s heartbreak over Cassandra initially led him to think he would never find love again but all that changed when he met Keely Shaye Smith in a Mexican bar in 1994.The pair tied the knot in a £1.5m wedding in 2001 and went on to have two children Dylan, now 27, and Paris, 23.The former model, who he calls my “North star” helped him move on but he is open that Cassie remains in his thoughts.“I know what it is like to be a widower and what it is like to find love again. So I know there’s hope and that you have to learn to get on with it,”  he told the Mirror.”But the memory of Cassie and her fight against cancer is never forgotten.”It’s painful because you shut down. You never completely cut them off, but I have cut Christopher off. I had to say, ‘Go. Get busy living, or get busy dying’. Pierce BrosnanWhile Pierce was able to find happiness again, Chris got hooked on cocaine and heroin after his mother died, and his life began to spiral out of control.In 1997, he was handed a three-month prison sentence for drink-driving. Chris was also involved in a massive brawl at Browns nightclub in London and was later banned from the venue.He was then arrested for theft at another London club Chinawhite, but charges were later dropped. After reaching out with offers of help proved futile, Pierce took the difficult decision to walk away.In an interview with Playboy in 2005, he said: “Christopher is still very lost. Shockingly so. I know where he is but he’s having a hard life.”I can only have strong faith and believe he will recover. He has tested everybody in this family but none more so than himself. He knows how to get out. He doesn’t want to.”It’s painful because you shut down. You never completely cut them off, but I have cut Christopher off. I had to say, ‘Go. Get busy living, or get busy dying’. “He has my prayers.”Chris was an aspiring film maker when he appeared on the reality showCredit: RexHe was on Love Island in 2005 and hooked up with Sophie AndertonCredit: Kent News and PicturesHe also got together with Lady Victoria HerveyCredit: RexThat year, Chris starred on the original series of Love Island alongside Paul Danan and Brendan Cole, coupling up with Sophie Anderton and Lady Victoria Hervey.But his career sank without trace after leaving the reality show and, while Pierce and Christopher have occasionally spent time together, the pair have a difficult relationship.In 2012 Chris, was rushed to hospital in Paddington after lapsing into a coma after a night out in the West End.Another tragic deathPierce’s daughter Charlotte also tragically died of ovarian cancer in 2013Credit: PA:Press AssociationChris suffered another blow when his sister Charlotte was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, 22 years after their mother.The mum-of-two passed away in June 2013, days after marrying partner Alex Smith, leaving behind daughter Sophie, then 15, and son Lucas, 10.In a statement Pierce said: “Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. “We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon.”To watch someone you love have his or her life eaten away bit by bit by this insidious disease, that kind of sorrow becomes an indelible part of your psyche.Pierce BrosnanPierce admits that losing the two women he loved so dearly had left him with bouts of depression.“I don’t look at the cup as half full, believe me. The dark, melancholy Irish dog sits beside me from time to time,” he told Esquire.“To watch someone you love have his or her life eaten away bit by bit by this insidious disease, that kind of sorrow becomes an indelible part of your psyche.”But he says Keely helped through his personal tragedies with “a strength I wouldn’t be able to live without.”However his relationship with Chris had remained strained.In a Father’s Day post back in June 2022, Pierce seemingly reached out to him, writing: “My love forever to you dear sons, Paris, Dylan, Sean and Christopher, thank you deeply for your love on this Father’s Day.”But while his other three sons, Paris, Dylan and Sean, were in the picture with Pierce, Chris was nowhere to be seen.’Keely is my North Star’Pierce has called Keely his “North Star”Credit: GettyPierce and Keely now live as quietly as possible, away from the limelight, at their $100 million (£79m), eco-friendly Malibu mansion, which is made from recycled wood and has a Zen garden complete with intricately carved doors and Buddha statues.They spend their time between there and a five-acres, oceanfront estate in Kauai, Hawaii.While the memory of first wife Cassandra is always there in the marriage, Keely had proved the rock Pierce needed to carry on.“Keely has always been kind and compassionate and encouraged me to mourn Cassie,” he said.”I think of her all the time. I ­suppose Keely is my North Star, always looking out for me.”Keely has always been kind and compassionate and encouraged me to mourn Cassie. I think of her all the time. I ­suppose Keely is my North Star, always looking out for me.Pierce BrosnanLast year, marking their 22nd anniversary, Pierce told Fox News: “We like each other a lot. We love each other a lot.”And we’ve been down the road, and we’ve seen many, many hardships as families do, as we all do.“But watching someone grow up with you and grow old with you is a very spiritual journey.”To watch each other change… whatever it may be, the hair, the waist. But it’s the love in the heart. Keeley is a journalist, a reporter. She’s an artist in her own right. “And as a woman, she has made a family for our sons. She allows me to go out into the wild blue yonder and do what I do as a man, as an actor, [she] always has.”And the feeling is clearly mutual.On Father’s Day this year, along with a picture of Pierce beaming, Keely wrote: “Happy Father’s Day my love. You fill our lives with endless beauty, curiosity, joy and sunshine.’No way back’In 2022, Pierce seemingly reached out to Chris but he wasn’t in the Father’s Day pictureCredit: Instagram/piercebrosnanofficialDue to both Chris and Pierce both losing loved ones, relationship expert Jo can see the rift from both sides.She explains: “They’ve both been through horrendous tragedies. “For Chris’ father to die, then to lose his mum to ovarian cancer then and lose his sister to it too, you can see how he would have taken to heroin and cocaine as a coping mechanism. “He looked so promising back in the day, and he was hugely supported by Pierce, who adopted him and encouraged him. “He just couldn’t cope. He couldn’t deal with the tragedy in his life, and took himself off really into drugs.”Pierce Brosnan’s tragic lifePierce Brosnan’s life has been full of heartache and tragedy..1986 – The biological father of Pierce’s first wife Cassandra’s two children, Charlotte and Chris, passed away, which led him to become their adopted dad. They were just 14 and 15 at the time.1987 – Pierce’s wife Cassie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer and the children faced losing a second parent.December 1991 – Cassie passed away in what Pierce called “the longest night of my life.”1997 – Having become hooked on drugs, Chris was arrested for drink-driving.2005 – Pierce confessed he’d made the “painful” decision to cut Chris off, after trying to plead with him to get off the drugs.June 2013 – Pierce’s adopted daughter Charlotte died from ovarian cancer, 22 years after her mother Cassie.She continues: “When parents are desperate for their kids to get off drugs, there are two sorts of approaches. “I’m sure Pierce tried the kindness and the encouragement, money for rehabilitation, whatever, but I think his Chris was on such a poor trajectory that in the end, Pierce just said, ‘Okay, that’s it. I can’t do anything to help you.'”The last resort is estrangement, and Pierce did reach out to him in that beautiful Father’s Day post, two years ago, but nothing happened from it.”Chris is just hostile to any reconciliation now. I think, possibly what makes it feel worse, for Chris, is that his adopted father has found happiness again. “He lives an incredibly healthy lifestyle, he’s in his 70s now, and he looks incredible.”READ MORE SUN STORIESShe finishes: “They’re such different people, and they’ve chosen such different responses to grief. That is the big barrier between the two of them.”I’m sure they think about each other a lot, but the longer a rift goes on, the harder it is to get things back to normal again.” More

Fashion editor reveals the 90s trends that should stay in the past NINETIES and noughties trends especially have become a hit with Gen Z – most likely because they didn’t wear them the first time round. Here, Deputy Fashion Editor Abby McHale gives the rundown of some of the trends that have made a comeback that we wish did not.
    Disc belts
    “A hit with celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Blake Lively, the belt itself did nothing that a belt should actually do – it was a mere fashion statement, not a piece to actually hold anything up. 
    “And it seems it’s not just me who is enraged by its return, with many taking to TikTok to give their views, saying: ‘Oh no not the disc belt! I don’t think I have the energy for it a 2nd time around’ – I feel you.”
    Jelly shoes
    “After not being seen on shelves for decades, they’ve made a reappearance and this time they’re not just for kids. 
    “Coming in a range of colourful patterns, you can get them all over the high street in either flat or heeled versions. 
    “Not only will you look very childish wearing such shoes, but people will also need to learn that they aren’t the comfiest – blister plasters will come in handy.”
    Pedal pushers
    “The cropped knee-grazing trouser were all the rage in the 1990s and 2000s, but this time the model fash pack are all over them – with both Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski wearing them out recently. 
    “The original IT girls, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot helped make the trousers – also called Capri pants – look effortlessly cool and glam.
    “Somehow this time round they don’t seem to be having that same effect.”

    Sharing her stunning snaps with her 52.4mllion Instagram followers, she wrote: “I’ll be here if ya need me.”And earlier this year, Kendall, 28, sent temperatures rising when she posed in a red crochet micro bikini that left very little to the imagination.Emily, 33, showed off her cleavage in a bright blue bikini with red hearts printed all over it as she relaxed on a sun lounger. She also donned a similarly colourful print for a daring shoot in Brooklyn, New York.LBB (Little Black Bikini) BrigadeMolly-Mae Hague showcased her LBB on a hen do last monthCredit: INSTAGRAMBella Hadid rocked the look too while sunning herself on a yacht in FranceCredit: ABACAFollowers: Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Molly Mae-Hague, Liz HurleyThe little black dress has been a fashion staple for decades and now it’s the turn of the little black bikini (LBB).Russian model Irina Shayk, 38, took to her Instagram last week to share snaps of her in a tiny black bikini next to a lake.She was celebrating a weekend away with her seven-year-old daughter Lea De Seine, seven, whom she shares with her ex, Hollywood star Bradley Cooper, 49.During a break from the Cannes Film Festival last month, supermodel Bella Hadid, 27, was snapped jumping off a yacht in her skimpy version while skilfully managing to keep her dignity intact.Influencer and former Love Island star Molly Mae-Hague chose to wear a little black bikini as she soaked up the sun on her sister’s hen do last month.

In March, the 37-year-old pop star ditched her top as she laid on a towel beside the pool in Costa Rica after looking loved up on the beach with surfing instructor Armando Perez – just days after confirming her split from husband, art dealer Caspar Jopling, 32. Then, earlier this week she shared snaps of herself sunbathing with her casting director friend Olivia Grant, while protecting her modesty with her hands during a pal’s hen do.Why the latest fashion trends are a disaster for real women’s bodiesFrom bum-skimming micro shorts to flesh-baring blouses, it seems the “new-in
    Fabulous’ Fashion Editor Clemmie Fieldsend explains why she, as a size 10, is struggling to add this season’s latest trends to her wardrobe.
    “If if I was to wear the season’s styles, I’d look stupid.
    My job as Fashion Editor is to know what’s hot and what’s not, what’s in shops and what people are wearing. But this season, stores seem flooded with looks I find unwearable — and I’m sure many more ‘normal’ people do, too.
    For example, I wouldn’t be caught dead in the love handles-baring low-rise jeans that are dominating the High Street.
    And I recently saw a picture of the stunning Sydney Sweeney in a pair — with boyish-looking boxers poking out the top, and matching bandeau crop top. Despite her beauty, I thought the White Lotus star looked daft.
    And I had to ask myself: ‘What reinforcements has she got holding up her boobs?’
    The other thing irritating me about fashion is, if it’s not open at the back, it’s open at the front.
    While I’m all for body confidence and wearing what you want, there’s no way I’m standing on a packed train, or visiting the office, with my stomach, bra and boobs on show. I’d hate to put anyone off their corn flakes.
    Right now, Zara is the worst offender. When its models aren’t crouching awkwardly on top of kitchen stoves they are wearing crocheted flared trousers and spaghetti-strapped sequin crop tops.
    I’m a 33-year-old M&S woman. From underwear to outerwear, I love them and look to them every week to see what’s trending.
    They’re really nailing waistcoats at the moment. Simple and stylish, they’ve got them in cotton, linen and a rainbow of colours.”

    Supermodel Heidi Klum is another fan of baring all. Earlier this month, she posed topless while sunbathing by the pool in a video she shared on her Instagram while celebrating her 51st birthday. Heidi’s daughter Leni, 19, also a model, admitted earlier this year she used to get “embarrassed” about her mum going topless.She said: “I would have birthday parties at the house, or I would have friends over, like my boyfriend over, and she tans topless by the pool.READ MORE SUN STORIES”And I remember having my girlfriends over, and I’d be so embarrassed and like scared because usually in my friend’s families, I never see their moms tanning naked by the pool, but I thought it was normal.”And my friends would always be like, hmmm, like kind of standoffish, but it was just so normal in our family.” More
