JAMES BOND hunk PIERCE BROSNAN has started to believe his 007 stardom may carry a curse with it - following his daughter's admission to a drugs rehabilitation clinic.
In the latest tragedy to hit the Brosnan family, the actor's daughter CHARLOTTE HARRIS, 26, is being treated at London's $6,000 (£4,000)-a-week celebrity clinic THE PRIORY, in a bid to overcome the drug-induced depression haunting her life.
The GOLDENEYE star has regularly flown into London from his Hollywood home to visit her. Charlotte's problems come in the wake of Brosnan's difficulties with his 17-year-old son SEAN.
Last summer (00) Sean, his only son by the late actress CASSANDRA HARRIS, had an horrific clifftop car crash in Malibu and then at Christmas was suspended from $22,500 (£15,000)-a-year MILLFIELD SCHOOL for punching and kicking a 16-year-old boy after a row between their girlfriends.
A close friend of the JAMES BOND star, 47, said, "Pierce loves his role as 007 - but he's beginning to think it's a curse, too. He's had more domestic pain and tragedy than anyone he can think of." (TM/WNSPE/CPT)
