When it comes to celeb scandals, a few things immediately come to mind.

Things like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie's feud, Lori Loughlin getting arrested, or anything to do with the Kardashians.

But other, (lesser-known) scandals exist as well. And, in a surprising turn of events, some are more shocking. The biggest celeb scandals of our time include everything from cheating accusations of all kinds, to tragic and untimely deaths.

Here are 10+ celeb scandals people likely forgot about.

1. When Drake Bell freaked out over not being invited to Josh Peck's wedding.

Bell ended up going on a Twitter tirade against his former Drake & Josh costar by tweeting things like, "True colors have come out today."

Once Drake calmed down, he deleted the tweets. But the damage was obviously done.

Later, he told Digital Spy that he was so upset because he viewed Josh as a brother.

Thankfully, they've since patched things up.

2. When David DeLuise’s nude photos leaked.

This was a majorly awkward scandal since he played the dad on Wizards of Waverly Place.

Even Selena Gomez, his former costar, reportedly said that she was "embarrassed for him."

3. When Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus on live TV.

Nicki had been upset over Miley calling her "not too kind" during an interview with the New York Times.

So when she won the award for Best Hip-Hop Video for “Anaconda" at the VMAs where Miley was hosting, she went off.

"[Expletive] that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press the other day," Nicki said.


She finished with the "Miley, what's good" that was heard all around the world.


4. When David Henrie brought a loaded gun to the airport.


Yet another Wizards of Waverly Place star scandal!

"I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today," Henrie tweeted after news broke. "I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport."

5. When Christian Bale went on a rant on a movie set.

When the actor worked on Terminator Salvation, he went on a rant against the film's director of photography for accidentally interrupting a scene.

The leaked footage painted Bale in a bad light.

6. When Nick Carter filed a retraining order against his brother, Aaron Carter.

In a statement released online, Nick expressed concerns over "Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior."

This included confessions about wanting to kill Nick's pregnant wife and unborn child.

After being served, Aaron didn't take to the news lightly.

He ended up going on an angry Twitter rant against his family.

"Take care. @nickcarter we're done for life," he tweeted after, followed up by, "I haven't seen him in four years. And I don't intend."

7. When Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan were in a huge feud in the early '00s.

Over Aaron Carter, no less. That's because he kept dating them both, thus pitting the girls against each other.

Soon, drama erupted, like when Lohan reportedly told Chad Michael Murray that Duff stole her boyfriend.

"I've never stolen anyone's boyfriend!" Hilary told *Allure* in 2008.


"I don't know how you do that! ... She was talking about it and I wasn't. It made us both look bad and put up a big weirdness."

Long story short, these two still aren't friends.

8. When Reese Witherspoon was arrested.

In 2013, the Little Fires Everywhere star was arrested for disorderly conduct after disobeying orders from a police officer.

Meanwhile, her husband, Jim Toth, who was driving under the influence that night, faced a DUI charge.

9. When Mariah Carey said she doesn't know Jennifer Lopez.

Ou, the shade. The singer first said that she didn't know Jennifer Lopez in the early 2000s.

Since then, it has created a life of its own, spawning many memes.

10. When Kristen Stewart publicly cheated on Robert Pattinson.


Kristen found herself at the center of a scandal when she was photographed kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.

Unfortunately, this happened while she was still dating Rob and also while Rupert was married...

11. When Caitlyn Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident.

This four-car pile-up, which took place in 2015, tragically took the life of 70-year-old Kim Howe.

Since Caitlyn was driving below the speed limit at the time, she wasn't charged.

12. When Jerry Seinfeld was dating a 17-year-old when he was 38.

He had met Shoshanna Lonstein, a high school senior at the time, in a park. Not surprisingly, they faced a lot of scrutinies.

"I'm not an idiot. Shoshanna is a person, not an age. She is extremely bright," Jerry told People.

13. When Fergie peed her pants on stage.

Awkward! Maybe this is why she quit the Black-Eyed Peas? Just sayin'.

Back when she was part of the group, she famously peed her pants during their 2005 performance.

She later explained what happened during an interview with Ebro in the Morning on Hot 97.

"I'm running on and we jump and do 'Let's Get It Started', and I get crazy and I jump and I run across the stage and my adrenaline was going and gosh," she explained.

"I wish it didn't happen ... It was so embarrassing!"

14. When Ariana Grande was filmed licking donuts.

While doing this unspeakable act, she made some mean comments about Americans when the employee brought over more donuts.

"What the [expletive] is that? I hate Americans. I hate America," she said.

15. When Michael Jackson dangled a baby out of an open window.

Michael Jackson was known for being eccentric, but dangling a newborn from a third-story window is pushing it — even for the King of Pop.

Ironically, the hotel in Berlin where the event took place has now become a tourist attraction.

16. When Macaulay Culkin emancipated himself.

Macaulay Culkin had an incredibly tough upbringing. His parents were abusive and forced him to work incredibly long and hard hours.

When he was fifteen, Mack sued his parents and won! Now, after more than two decades out of the spotlight, he's making his return to acting.

17. When Britney Spears shaved her head and attacked the paparazzi with an umbrella.

Britney Spears was the biggest thing on the planet. Her star power was massive and the paparazzi simply couldn't get enough.

She ended up having a very public mental breakdown which drastically altered her career trajectory.

18. When Kanye West proclaimed that George W. Bush "doesn't care about Black people."

Kanye has provided so much fodder over the years that it's difficult to pin down his most infamous moment.

I never understood how he could make such a claim, but then be a Trump supporter?

19. When Raven Simone said that she was from every continent in Africa, except for one.


Raven Simone has a reputation for making incredibly politically incorrect generalizations.

It's clear from the interview that what she really meant to say was "countries" and not "continents," but it's still pretty funny.

20. When John Travolta infamously butchered Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars.

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, John explained that the reasoning behind his blunder was twofold.

First, he was supposedly starstruck by Goldie Hawn. Second, the name was written phonetically, and John claims that's not how it was done in rehearsals.

21. When Ryan Seacrest tried to high-five a blind kid.

You've got to hand it to Ryan, he really was committed to getting that high-five.

Most people with a shred of shame would have probably recognized their mistake and slunk away, but not him.

22. Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction.

Janet Jackson gave football fans more than they'd bargained for during a performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

At the end of her set, Justin Timberlake "accidentally" removed a piece of her wardrobe, thus revealing her breast for all the world to see.

23. When Sinead O'Connor tore up a picture of the Pope on live TV.


During a live performance, Sinead produced a picture of Pope John Paul II.

When the song was over, she then proceeded to tear the picture into pieces, urging the audience at home to, as she put it, "fight the real enemy."

24. When *La La Land* was announced as Best Picture at the Oscars by mistake.

This may have been the most cringeworthy moment in the long history of the Academy Awards.

Everyone from La La Land was on the stage, they even gave an acceptance speech!

25. Paul is dead.

This is one of the oldest as well as my personal favorite celebrity scandal on the list. In the 1960s, a rumor began circulating that Paul McCartney had passed away. Only instead of alerting the authorities, a massive cover-up was implemented.

"Paul is dead" alleges that the Paul McCartney alive today is an imposter.

26. When Justin Bieber said that Anne Frank would have been a "Belieber."

The media was quick to condemn Justin for his insensitivity. Was it the most well thought out statement on his behalf? Of course not.

But he should be commended for taking the time to visit such a historically significant landmark.

27. When Lindsay Lohan got punched in the face for trying to kidnap a child.

This video is disturbing and hard to watch.

Lindsay approaches a family sleeping on the streets. She begins by asking the kids if they'd like to sleep in a hotel with her. It escalates quickly, and the end result leaves Lindsay knocked to the ground with a fresh shiner.

28. When OJ Simpson wrote a book titled "If I Did It."

OJ Simpson was acquitted in one of the most high-profile murder trials of the 20th century. So what did he decide to do with his newly won freedom? He wrote a book explaining how he would have committed the crime if he was the murderer.

Which of course, he wasn't...

29. When Mitt Romney tied his dog to the roof of his mini-van for 12 hours.

This is just plain disgusting and Mitt is lucky he didn't face criminal charges.

The former presidential hopeful locked his family dog in the luggage roof-rack during a 12-hour drive from Boston to Ontario.

30. When Mark Wahlberg was convicted of a hate crime.

Mark Wahlberg's early years on the streets of Boston don't paint the actor in a good light at all.

In his teens, Mark was arrested and charged with several violent assaults; he nearly beat a Vietnamese man to death.
