5 Classic Celebrity Scandals Everyone Should Know
If you're looking for trouble, then you're in the right place. Here's a few CLASSIC celebrity scandals that rocked the world.
Pamela Anderson And Tommy Lee Video
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee made an intimate tape before it was the cool thing to do in Hollywood. The original homemade video stars made the tape in the 90s while on their honeymoon. Later, an angry electrician who had been working on their home (and claimed to have been ripped off) stole it. It's been 20 years since the scandal and the 'business model', so to speak, has catapulted otherwise innocuous people to instant . stardom. Some of these now-celebrities include Tila Tequila (terrible human), Kim Kardashian (talentless turd), Paris Hilton (racoon crawling in trash), and Farrah Abraham (disgusting person). Now, don't you get any ideas! Hey! Put that video camera down; there's more scandals to read about!
Tiger Wood's had a string of scandals related to his habitual philandering. It started with some intercepted texts by his wife, Elin Nordegren, at which she attacked him with his own gold clubs. He famously tried to escape, unsuccessfully, as she cracked the clubs through the windows of his fleeing SUV which subsequently was stopped dead in its tracks by a tree. At first, Tiger tried to cover the incident up with lies, then he tried to cover up his affairs with more lies. Eventually the girls exposed him with tons of proof and he was forced to apologize, on camera, to the world, his fans and his sponsors. Since this scandal, he has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in endorsements and his career has never been the same.
It's hard to keep track of all the abuse allegations swirling around Bill Cosby, with fresh ones popping up almost daily. More than 50 women have accused Bill Cosby of assaulting them, but he is only standing trial in Philadelphia for allegedly drugging and raping one accuser, former Temple University athlete Andrea Constand, in 2004.
Cosby, who denies the charges, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
With the sheer amount of women accusing Cosby of his dirty deeds, it does not take much convincing to see that he is probably as guilty as it comes. The kicker in this all is the statute of limitations which disallows most of the victims from filing charges. Hopefully justice will prevail in this single case that is eligible to put him behind bars, where it is apparently really hard to get sedatives to slip in to people's drinks. I'm just saying.
Gibson has had more than his fair share of scandals, mostly showing his colors as a racist with severe anger management issues. The first big scandal came about when Mel was pulled over for a DUI check. He let on a heated racist tirade at the arresting officer. Not only was he blackballed from Hollywood for a while, he was pushed to release a public apology to help spin things his way;
"After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the LA County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said. Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health."
Brittney Spear's Mental Breakdown
Everyone remembers when the girl-next-door had her head shaving mental breakdown and subsequent decline into a psyche ward. Her pops eventually won conservatorship over her finances and helped to get her back on the straight and narrow. Brittney has since made a triumphant comeback and seems a better person after a long cool down period in which her father had control over her money and life in general.
