Even though Dwayne eventually followed his father Rocky Johnson into pro wrestling - the future People's Champion did not see his father a lot when he was a kid, if ever!
“Dewey [Dwayne] had a really hard time as a child growing up because he never saw his dad. Rocky was on the road 12 out of every 14 days, and that was crushing for Dewey. It was very hard to watch, because he was so sad all the time.”
It also didn't help that his father was having an extramarital affair with a woman named Luan.
Luan says that little Dwayne Johnson used to call her up and tell her to stop being a home wrecker!
Here's what she said:
“He was only 12 years old, and he called me, yelling, ‘Stay away from my dad, and leave my mother alone!’ I told him that it was between adults and that he didn’t understand.”
Poor little guy!
It must've been so hard to deal with such complicated issues at such a simple age!
Luckily, he was able to use his childhood's frustration to make himself into a top notch movie actor!
But at what cost?
