Celebrities Who’ve Been Involved in Sex Scandals
It’s no secret that most celebrities don’t live “squeaky clean” lives. The vast majority of them have been arrested a time or two. Some have even been involved in some pretty serious sex scandals. While these scandals often get swept under the rug or simply forgotten as new headlines enter the tabloids, that doesn’t change the fact that they happened. Here, we’ll take a look back at some celebrity sex scandals, many of which may surprise you!
When you think of Kim Kardashian, you probably think of her as a reality television star. Before her rise to reality stardom on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, however, she made a sex tape with musician and then-boyfriend Ray J. Four years after filming their sexual relations, the tape was leaked and became a hot topic for quite some time.
Golfer and “man about town” Tiger Woods found himself in hot water when it was reported, back in 2009, that he’d cheated on his wife with a nightclub manager. Unfortunately, the bad news didn’t end there for Woods. Many more women came forward and said they’d also had flings with Tiger, which they were able to prove with text messages and other evidence. As a result of his actions, Tiger Woods lost a lot of endorsement deals and ended up divorcing his wife.
Another heiress-turned-reality-star, Paris Hilton, rose to fame (or is it infamy?) via a sex tape. Her sex tape was also leaked after the fact. It featured her and her boyfriend at the time, Rick Saloman. The tape was titled 1 Night in Paris and definitely made waves in the celebrity world.
John Travolta is often thought of as a “nice guy” in Hollywood, but that image was tainted when a masseuse filed a lawsuit against the actor for assault and battery. The angry male massage-pro claimed that Travolta hit on him repeatedly during his massage session, and another man came forward to claim the same. They later had the case dismissed, so it’s hard to tell if there was any truth in the rumors.
What’s the deal with reality television and sex tapes? They seem to go hand-in-hand. That’s definitely the case for Farrah Abraham, who had a “sex tape” released under the title Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom. The “catch” though is that her sex tape wasn’t with a boyfriend; it was with professional porn star James Deen, and pretty much everyone involved, except for Farrah herself, says it wasn’t a sex tape; it was just pornography.
Finally, who could forget that the beloved star of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, whose real name is Paul Reubens, got arrested in 1991 for publicly masturbating in an adult theater.? His popular show was snatched off the air, and his good name was forever tarnished.
As you can see, lots of celebrities have had strange sex scandals. Some overcome them, but others never do. That’s why it’s best for stars and everyone to keep their sexual lives as private (and unfilmed!) as possible.
