Barbra Streisand's Stepson Spotted Going Through Garbage Bins for Food

Singing legend Barbra Streisand is worth $300 million. But her stepson, Jess Brolin, has reportedly been evicted from his Ojai, Calif., apartment and is living on the street, where he was recently spotted rummaging through a trash can for food, reports the Mirror.

Brolin, son of actor James Brolin and brother of actor Josh Brolin, is reportedly living 80 miles away from his family’s Malibu estate. The 41-year-old, who is obese, inherited a sizable trust fund from his mother, Jane Cameron Agee, when she died in a car crash in 1995. But Brolin has reportedly squandered his six-figure inheritance, reports the New York Daily News, and has been broke since 2011. He has reportedly slept everywhere from an old pick-up truck to a field behind shops, according to his friends.

Brolin’s family says they have repeatedly tried to help him but that nothing has worked.

“We have offered help and support and we continue to do so,” said a spokesman for the Brolin family. “We love him very much and only want what is best for him.”

Josh Brolin, who is 46 and has been nominated for an Oscar for his work in “Milk,” released the following statement about his sibling: “Contrary to what has been erroneously reported, Jess is gainfully employed and supports himself. If Jess were ever in need of support or any assistance, there would never be a question his family and friends would be there for him under all and any circumstance.”
