Happy Father's Day: 9 Celebrities and the Famous Dads Who Love Them!

by at .

When it comes to some of Hollywood's biggest and brighest stars, many of them are quick to thank their parents for unconditional support throughout the years.

Others, however, have tales of very public estrangement from their parents, their fathers in particular. Both make for interesting celebrity gossip stories.

Since it's Father's Day, we thought we'd take a look at 9 celebrities and their dads.

It's hard to find a more supportive father than Billy Ray Cyrus. Despite any and all of Miley Cyrus' crazy antics throughout the years, Billy Ray has stood by his baby girl. 

Since it was his career which introduced her to this life, he's probably making the right call by keeping any disappointments he may have to himself.

Jon Voight, on the other hand, who also introduced his daughter, Angelina Jolie, to the world of Hollywood, has had a very tumultuous relationship with his offspring.

After being estranged for several years throughout Jolie's teens, the two reconciled only to have a public falling out again in 2002.

He went on the record to say she has mental health issues and she went on the record to call him a big ol' cheater. And now they're one big happy family again.

Speaking of one big, happy family, Bruce Jenner's son Brody Jenner - one of the first of that family to careen into a career in reality television and ironically one who is eschewing the spotlight now that his sisters and stepmother are standing center stage - is publicly standing by his father while Bruce undergoes, well, whatever it is he's undergoing right now.

And then there's Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, and Katy Perry. 

Beyonce and Jessica Simpson were both managed by their fathers and owe large parts of their careers to their dads, even if those relationships just aren't what they used to be.

Katy Perry, on the other hand, ran from her father's Evangelical ways and has been referred to as "devil spawn." She still takes her dad to basketball games, though.

That's gotta be a sign they're still on good terms, right?
