Hollywood is best described by money, fame, and of course, scandals. With celebrities being in the spotlight almost all the time, a little slip and the media is all over it like a pack of vultures. While these scandals sometimes do wonders for a celebrity’s brand, some scandals have led to broken marriages, prison sentences and sometimes death. It goes without saying that celebrity scandals are here to stay, so in this article, we’ll highlight 10 of the most shocking celebrity scandals ever.
10. Bill Cosby’s Sexual Assaults
We kick off our list by highlighting one of the most scandalous falls from grace to have ever hit Hollywood. Once considered ‘America’s Dad’ Bill Cosby is currently serving a 3 to 10-year jail term for sexual assault. After a half-dozen women testified that the sitcom comedian had on different occasions drugged and assaulted them, Bill was found guilty by the jury and lost his dignity, freedom, legacy and the Oscar awards he had previously won. Although Bill defended himself that all the alleged sexual encounters were consensual, the fact that he drugged his victims makes him a Hollywood villain in most people’s eyes.
