5 Shocking Criminal Charges Celebrities Were Hiding


Okay, so some of our favorite celebrities are not whiter than white and with a seemingly ever present mix of alcohol-related incidents and drug-fuelled parties that end in tears, is it any wonder that some famous faces hold rap sheets as long as their arms?

Let’s take a look at six shocking criminal charges that will make you cringe.

1. R. Kelly

This story is not the best kept secret in Hollywood, but we still think it deserved the number one spot in our list. After marrying singer Aaliyah when she was just 15 and he was 27, the rapper quickly annulled the ceremony in 1994.

After that questionable performance, R. Kelly was allegedly found, on videotape, having sex with an under-aged girl.

He was charged in 2002 with 14 counts of sex with a minor.

The trial was delayed six years, and when it finally rolled around, he was found not guilty.

2. Aretha Franklin

The massive soul singer reportedly sang her way out of a parking ticket earlier this year!

It is believed that she sang for the officer that pulled her over and then autographed an envelope for him. Naughty.

    The average male is about 5’8 to 5’9….so the guys listed are’nt exactly elf-like…or in need of step ladders..I do admit that they must use camera tricks to appear taller on screen tho..

    • DaveDWave

      5’9 is average height for American men…Cruise has always used camera tricks to appear over 6’…bet he has “little man syndrome” bad,especially when seen with some over 6′ totally hot female celeb..

    • DaveDWave

      America has 2 systems…1- The “Just Us(rich folks) System” that allows for excuses like “Affluenza” which is total BS…the other, the Justice System, for the rest of us..that makes hardened career criminals out of jaywalkers

  • Sam Spade

  • 1ofdagals

    Eww, that Kelly dude deserves to crash and burn….any old fart having sex with children is totally sick , pedophiles continue sexing children forever and can’t be rehabilitated. I know that plenty kids have parents that don’t press charges against the perps is another thing wrong with today, people birthing kids and don’t know how to raise a kid to be an asset to society ….lap dancers and prison fodder, lack of self esteem, is the result of bad parenting

    • DaveDWave

      I might agree were she any younger…but really..15 is not a baby…or a little kid..I dont agree with it,or recommend fooling with teenaged girls, but the way a good many act,dress,and talk today…they are not “innocents”…and besides..what could a guy in his mid/late 20’s possibly have in common or have to talk to a teenaged girl about?? Zilch…

    • john Possum

      Totally agree with Nia, he knew who young those girls were, he looked for girls that young any other man than a man with money would of went to jail. If I remember correctly the girl he got charged with he peed on her…

    They wouldn’t even have to bend over to audition!

    None of these are shocking nor were they hidden. Who the fuck didn’t know R. Kelly peed on some girl or that Robert Downey Jr. used to party too hard?

    • Sam

      ME I don’t know any of them thankfully!

    • Dev2008

      I thought most people knew this too. And nothing has changed because low life scum celebrities are still getting away with breaking laws i.e., Justin Bieber and his pal Chris Brown. Who gives a guy who beats the hell out of his girlfriend probation and then he keeps getting away with starting fights, with men and women. Now we’re seeing his little bff Bieber get away with tons of shiat too…send that dork back to Canada, he’s a bad influence on Chris Brown. ;D

  • Eric

    lest not forget matthew broderick. in northern ireland, he crashed into a mother and daughter while driving the wrong way down the road and they both died. he was never charged

    • Not to be a dick but..

      Well if he wasn’t charged then it does not fit this category,

    • peggym

      He was charged, and went to court. He didn’t try to hide from it, or demand extradition. He was not convicted. It was deemed an accident.

      • BaltimoreJack

        Wouldn’t call a $175 fine for killing 2 people a “charge”, saying it’s a slap on the wrist is an understatement. And actually, he claimed to have amnesia and says he doesn’t remember that day at all. Also, he has yet to meet with any of the close members of the family he destroyed. So I’d file that under “hiding from it.”
