We are witnessing the glamorous lives that celebrities are living every day and most of the people would be happy to have the same things they do. However, not everything is perfect in their world. Many of them had problems with addictions, law, depression and even suicides. Let’s get reminded of some celebrities who committed horrible crimes.
Here is the list of the celebrities who committed horrible crimes:
9. Kobe Bryant
A 19-year-old woman accused Bryant of raping her in her hotel room in Colorado back in 2003. According to her, it occurred a night before Bryant’s knee surgery. He admitted having the relations with her but denied ultimately that he obligated her to do anything. Furthermore, she didn’t appear in the court. Bryant and the woman settled for an undisclosed amount afterward. It is not quite clear whether they made an agreement in order to stop damaging his career and public image. However, if Kobe was responsible for such act, he surely deserves to be on the list of the celebrities who committed horrible crimes.
8. Caitlyn Jenner
Television star and former US athlete Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce) was released from charges of a car crash that killed a woman last year. The incident took place on February 7 in Los Angeles. Jenner’s vehicle crashed into another car in which Kim Howe, 69, was traveling. A result of the hit in Howe’s car crossed in the way by which vehicles circulated in the opposite direction, one of which collided with the car. As previously mentioned, the woman didn’t make it out alive.
7. Sean Penn
Sean Penn earned his way to the list of the celebrities who committed horrible crimes with the first problematic story from his life. Madonna, his wife back then, accused him of the domestic violence. Accordingly, he beat her up brutally with a baseball bat, after which she stayed hospitalized for a while. However, that is not the end of their story. Years after the shocking event, Sean entered Madonna’s house and held her roped in a chair for nine hours straight. The only way he would let her go is after forcing her to sexual activities, after which she escaped. He also spent 60 days in jail for other assaults.
Recently, Sean has been under the investigation due to his potential cooperation with Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, the famous drug cartel known as El Chapo.
Most recently, Penn is under investigation following an interview with the famous drug cartel Joaquín Archivaldo Guzman Loera, alias El Chapo. It is not clear if he has committed any crime.
6. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has been problematic for so long that people even forgot why she was famous before that. Since 2007, this actress has been sentenced for three cases: driving intoxicated and with drugs; stealing a necklace, and for reckless driving after her Porsche crashed into a garbage truck on the freeway. Her multiple arrests have affected her acting career, which she had to keep on pausing for a long time.
5. Roman Polanski
Roman Polanski, famous director, was charged with drugging a 13-year-old girl and having sex with her after a photo shoot at Jack Nicholson’s home. It was a shock to the public and a big scandal, which affected his public image significantly. He spent 42 days in jail. Afterward, he discovered that the judge wanted to imprison him again for the same crime. Polanski took advantage of his French citizenship and went to Europe, hence he could not be extradited from there. He was captured in 2009 and spent 2 months in jail. Furthermore, he received the benefit of the house for imprisonment and finally was released by Swiss justice.
4. Woody Allen
Woody Allen is one of the most admired directors of the contemporary era, which proves the fact that he won an Oscar four times. He lived with the actress Mia Farrow between 1982 and 1992 until she discovered that Allen had pornographic photographs of Soon Yi, Farrow’s adoptive 7 years old daughter. Allen denied the allegations of sexual abuse to Yi but married her shortly after the relationship between them came to light in 1997. Woody was then 63 years old and Soon Yi 27.
Afterward, Ronan Farrow (Mia Farrow’s son) accused Woody Allen of sexually abusing his sister Dylan. Allen also got accused of having sexually assaulted Dylan Farrow. However, Woody denied it and Dylan later withdrew the suit. We cannot be certain about what exactly happened within this family but having relations with a 7 years old daughter certainly lists Woody Allen around the top of the celebrities who committed horrible crimes list.
3. Mark Wahlberg
Wahlberg belonged to a racist gang as a teenager. He was in prison for 45 days after assaulting two Vietnamese men separately. He hit one with a stick, leaving him unconscious and punched another in the face. Mark also bullied black boys and made their lives impossible during the teenage days. The whole image of a racist, in the world where everyone fights for equality, made the career slightly harder to Mark. He apologized later many times in public, claiming that he didn’t know what he was doing and he has changed now.
2. Mike Tyson
Mike Tyson was arrested for raping an 18-year-old girl back in 1991. She said the boxer pinned her and raped her in her hotel room. Mike was imprisoned because of that until 1995, after which he got arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol in 2006. He lived the kind of crazy life as well so the problematic situations were not so surprising to the media anymore.
1. Charlie Sheen
Carlos Irwin Estevez (his real name) spent as much as $ 50,000 on prostitutes back in 1990s. His third wife, Brooke Mueller, accused him of the domestic violence in 2010 and he finally admitted the charges.
On November 17, 2015, Charlie Sheen admitted that he is a carrier of the HIV virus for four years. This revelation could bring legal claims from people with whom he had sex without warning of his condition. Having relations in California while being HIV positive, without telling them previously, can carry up to 8 years in prison.
