You put in all the work and your kids end up reaping all the benefits with no recognition of your efforts. Sound familiar?

Celebrity parents are not exempt from this either as Magic Johnson so painfully learned when he was left wondering where his invite to Tom Ford's New York Fashion Week show was.

Once known as one of America's best basketball player, Johnson was sadly not invited to Ford's runway show,. But you know who was invited? His kids.

Elisa and EJ Johnson showed up to Ford's fashion show, dressed in matching leather and crocodile skin outfits.

"I can’t believe I spend all this money on Tom Ford suits and my kids Elisa and EJ get an invite to the runway show in New York, not me lol," the 59-year-old father of three wrote.
