(Newser) – Being rich and famous doesn't necessarily exempt you from sometimes embarrassing your kids. The Huffington Post rounds up nine celebrity parents (and parents of celebrities) who have almost certainly caused their children to cringe:

  • Jamie Foxx: So his 19-year-old daughter was accompanying him at the Oscars. So what? He still went ahead and flirted with singer Kelly Rowland on the red carpet, telling her, "I’ve always had a crush on you."

  • Billy Ray Cyrus: Let's just say he probably regrets that time he said that daughter Miley's role on Hannah Montana "destroyed my family."
  • Kris Jenner: The Kardashian kids have been treated to embarrassing moments galore, thanks to the fact that their mom has her own reality show. She once apparently slipped male enhancement pills into her husband's coffee, and now the whole world knows about it. Enough said.
  • Joe Simpson: Who can forget that time he talked about daughter Jessica's "double Ds" and called her "sexy"?
