One of the most loved and respected actresses of all time is hiding a secret heartbreak to save her public image.
For years, Meryl Streep and her family have been struggling to control her favorite nephew, David Streep.
The 25-year-old has been in-and-out of jail for assault, DUI and drug charges — and is now facing up to five years on drug and weapons charges!
Our source claims Meryl would love to help her brother's son, but is afraid that the media attention wouldn't be good for her image. The insider says:
"She doesn't know what to do. She's not sure if she should reach out and help him, or stay away completely."
It's hard to pity the son of a multi-millionaire stock broker, who has totally trashed his gifted life opportunities many people can only dream of. However, we still hope David gets the help he needs to turn his life around!
