Rob sharing the experience, wanted people worldwide to be aware of the symptoms of the disease at the right time.

Son's Sex Tape Scandal 

Rob faced controversy and legal issues back in 1989 after he was caught up in a sex scandal that involved two women, then 16-year-old Atlanta girl named Lena Jan Parsons and her 23-year-old friend, Tara Seburt.

The sex tape was filmed in 1988 but leaked the following year. 

After the tape was released, Rob confessed to not knowing the girl was underage. 

The teenager's family filed a lawsuit against him. However, he did not face any criminal charges after he agreed to perform 20 hours of community service in his hometown Dayton.

While appearing on Sirius XM's The Jess Cagle Show in 2019 to talk about his book, Rob said that the scandal was the best thing that ever happened to him and explained how it changed his life. 

He admitted inventing the sex tape himself and that he didn't make as much money off it as everybody does now. 

He then went on to say that the scandal is one of the reasons behind his sobriety. 

He recalled waking up one day and asking himself what he was doing with his life. 

He said it was a long time, and people still talk, but it's the best thing that ever happened to him because it got him sober, and married.  

He has been married for 29 years and has sons, and he continued he doesn't think any of that happens without going through the scandal.

Rob was about 25 years old when he got so, but before that, he was in his rough years battling alcohol abuse and was also seeking more fame.
