What dark secrets hide behind all the glittery life of celebrities? Are they all as polished as they appear when stepping on the red carpet or boarding their private jets? Not by far.
We’re all accustomed to the sex scandals many celebrities were involved in at one point in their lives, but here we’re talking about real crimes, the kind of crimes you go to jail for.
Or not, because the rich and famous are very talented when it comes to avoiding that. See if you can find one of your idols on this not very righteous list.
10 Mel Gibson
How many times have you seen Mel Gibson in a mugshot? Plenty if you consider the number of times he was caught driving while intoxicated.
That’s nothing compared to the more severe offense of battery. In 2011, the famous actor was charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Gibson took a plea deal to avoid being investigated for domestic violence.
9 Martha Stewart
Millions of women look to her for advice in home style and, of course, cooking, but Martha Stewart is not as perfect as people think she is.
In 2004, Stewart was charged with insider trading and was sentenced to six months behind bars. Her biggest worry at the time? Not being able to choose the perfect jail and being sent to a drab place in the middle of nowhere!
8 Chris Brown
The American singer gained a lot of attention in 2009 when he assaulted his famous girlfriend Rihanna, leaving her with apparent bruises. Chris Brown was smart enough to take a plea deal and got off quickly with a little community service and counseling.
His short temper landed him in trouble many times after that famous incident. He was charged various times for assault, battery as well as a hit-and-run incident.
7 Felicity Huffman
Desperate Wives star Felicity Huffman was so desperate her daughter won’t make it to the right college that she hired someone to take the girl’s SAT for her.
Well, she wasn’t the only celebrity involved in the college admission scandal as many of these people believe money can buy them anything. The sentence? A mere slap on the wrist, just 15 days behind bars, and 250 community service for fraud.
