27-year-old Kevin McEnroe the son of former tennis champ John McEnroe and actress Tatum O’Neal, was arrested Tuesday night in New York City and accused of possessing multiple drugs.
Major media outlets are going at it about the story, who would have thought, the son of a major athlete is a major drug dealer?
The drugs reportedly included six clear glassine bags of cocaine, one blue pill, 20 white loose pills of Oxycontin and 10 orange unidentified narcotic pills. That means he was carrying six glassine envelopes of cocaine and more than two dozen prescription pills!
Kevin who now looks like the picture below, is one of his father’s five children.
His famous dad, married at an early age to Tatum O’Neal daughter of Ryan O’Neal and the two had three children together; Kevin born in 1986, Sean born in 1987 and Emily born in 1991. His parents split in 1994 and his father was described as an abusive man in Tatum’s autobiography.
His dad married second and current wife rock star, Patty Smith with whom he had two daughters; Kevin’s’ half younger sisters, Anna and Ava. He also has a stepsister named Ruby who is Patty Smith’s child from previous relationship.

If we take a walk down to memory lane Kevin’s mom O’Neal –who won an Oscar as a ten-year-old for her role alongside her father Ryan in Paper Moon –has battled a drug addiction since the age of 14.
John McEnroe took custody of their three children in 1995, when O’Neal was addicted to ******. And things got pretty ugly between the former couple, a decade later after their split John McEnroe banned his former wife Tatum O’Neal from seeing their children after she accused him of drugtaking, bullying and sexual manipulation.
