Terminator 2 actor Edward Furlong has been banned from being alone with his six-year-old son Ethan—because the boy tested positive for cocaine after spending time with his father. Furlong’s ex-wife, Rachael Bella, has obtained a court order to keep Furlong away from their son, even though the troubled actor told the judge that Bella is just trying to “alienate [him] further from [his] son and destroy [his] ability to work.” It's unclear how long Ethan was exposed to cocaine in his father’s custody. Furlong has a long history of drug abuse, including a battle with alcoholism, a heroin overdose and numerous stints in rehab. Chalk it up to the “John Connor” curse: Nick Stahl—who played John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machineswent missing earlier this year before checking into rehab, while Thomas Dekker of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was charged with two counts of felony DUI after hitting a 17-year-old cyclist on a freeway ramp in 2009. And of course, Christian Bale, who played Connor in 2009’s Terminator Salvation, went on an infamous profanity-filled tirade on set that became a viral sensation.

Suboxone seemed like a get-out-of-jail-free card, the answer to my opiate addiction. Instead, I had a new ten-year addiction, complete with thinning hair and lost motivation.
