EXCLUSIVE PICS: Paul Hogan is at his wits’ end as his son Chance appears more troubled than ever

Paul is constantly in fear for his troubled teen son.

In a scene that would drive any parent to desperation, these exclusive pictures show Paul Hogan's youngest son Chance spiralling scarily out of control.

The Crocodile Dundee star's son appeared to be in a terrible way after performing a gig with his punk band Rowdy P at Trip bar in Santa Monica on May 10.

The 19-year-old was spotted rushing outside and asking for water after his performance, before vomiting on the street and nursing his head. Sources say the confronting images have shattered his distressed father, who is already at the end of his tether.

"It's no secret Chance has been difficult to deal with over the years, and you've really got to feel for Hoges," an insider tells Woman's Day. "He essentially brought up Chance and it's been a lot for him to take on.

"Hoges is a great dad and all he wants is for his son to be happy and healthy."

Paul, 78, raised Chance as a single father in LA after the breakdown of his marriage to Crocodile Dundee co-star Linda Kozlowski, 60, in 2013.

But it hasn't come without its pitfalls. The teen has been making headlines for years now, most recently in 2015 when he was caught drinking beers and smoking what appeared to be a bong on the balcony of Paul's home.

"Hoges is at his wits' end these days. It goes without saying the last thing he wants is to see Chance destroy his life. As any father would, Hoges is living in fear that one day he'll get a call to say something bad's happened," says the insider.

"The problem is there's only so much he can do. Chance will have to learn from his own mistakes and that's what Hoges wants for him.

"He's trying to give him the space and freedom to grow into the person he was meant to be. But it's got to be tough when things like this happen.

"Chance is an adult now and he needs to start taking responsibility for his actions."

Meanwhile, his band has done nothing to alleviate his troubled image. In one song, Chance sings, "Hit my daddy with a baseball bat."

And they're not shy about courting controversy, having shared a photo on Instagram last week of a naked man with the words "Kill Donald Trump" written on his torso.

"Chance probably thinks it's just rock'n'roll, but you can imagine how Hoges must feel when he sees this kind of stuff. Of course, he'd like it if his son got a real job, but his music is the only thing he seems passionate about," adds the insider.

"Hoges can only hope that in time, Chance will grow up and put these wild antics behind him. But that's something he has to do on his own."
