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.

      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.

        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.”
