Richardson and Neeson's eldest son Micheál said he turned to drinking and drugs after his mother's accident. He was just 13-years-old at the time.

"I was going out, partying a lot, looking for self-gratification. I wanted to be the man, doing these drugs [...] Everybody said, 'This kid has lost his mum, that's where the problem comes from'. And I was like, 'No, it isn't, I just like to party," he said in an Interview with The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

The now-19-year-old went on to say that it wasn't until last year that he hit bottom and checked himself into rehab. This is the first time Micheál Neeson has opened up about the death of his mother. He's promoting his new fashion gallery in London.
