March 16th, 2014 6:03pm EDT
We understand that celebrities aren't perfect, but some of them have made a second career out of doing dumb things. Here are 16 celebrities with issues:
Justin Bieber - Bieber has been a menace for the past few years, irritating his neighbors in Calabasas (including an alleged egging incident), have his home searched by police, peeing in a mop bucket at a restaurant, drag racing, a DUI, and the infamous disposition video. Bieber has been so uneven people are beginning to think he's on steroids.
Selena Gomez - Selena went to rehab for "exhaustion" and allegedly left early, then hooked up with Justin Bieber against the wishes of her family and friends - and despite the fact she blasted him several times on Twitter.
Shia LaBeouf - Shia started a firestorm when he "forgot" to credit a writer for coming up with the idea behind a short film of his. After dueling it out with several people on Twitter, he began to claim it was all a performance piece and started wearing a bag on his head that had the words "I am not famous anymore" on it.
Brooke Mueller - Charlie Sheen's ex has been in and out of rehabs over the past few years for drug and alcohol addiction. Last May she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold and sent to the Betty Ford Clinic. Her twin sons were then taken by family services and handed over to Charlie's other ex, Denise Richards.
Charlie Sheen - After the Two and a Half Men fallout and his questionable tour, Sheen looked like he was ready to settle down and quietly work on Anger Management - but that didn't happen. Sheen hopped from one adult film actress to another before proposing to Brett Rossi. Now, rumors are swirling Charlie is beginning to become a nuisance on the set of his show… sounds familiar.
Leann Rimes / Eddie Cibrian / Brandi Glanville - Where to start with these three? After Cibrian left Glanville for Rimes, this love triangle has been revealed in great detail in the public eye. Rimes has checked into treatment for stress, Glanville has accused Cibrian of giving her HPV, and the two women have traded barbs in the press and on Twitter.
Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay has had several run-ins with the law due to car accidents and stealing jewelry. Her trial in 2013 became almost mythical; she fired her longtime lawyer only to hire her back and be ordered to rehab for 90 days. It appears Lohan may be getting back on track after her 6th time getting treatment, but we can't be sure.
Amanda Bynes - It all began to unravel for Bynes in 2012 when she was in several hit and run incidents. As time went on she displayed bizarre behavior on social networks, sharing clips of herself making odd faces and heavy makeup. Bynes was then arrested for possession of marijuana and for allegedly throwing her bong out the window of her apartment. She was held for psychiatric evaluation and sent to a private facility for care. It appears she is now on the road to recovery, but is currently under 3 years probation.
Chris Brown - Brown has been in the news for all the wrong reasons since he battered Rihanna. In 2012 he was in a bar brawl with Drake and his entourage. In 2013 he got into an altercation with Frank Ocean over a parking space. Later in that same year he was arrested for punching a photographer. The rapper then allegedly beat someone up over a basketball game in February of 2014.
Kanye West - West just can't help himself from speaking out. Whether it's criticizing George Bush for not caring about black people," interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, bashing Jimmy Kimmel for daring to make fun of him, or pummeling a teenager for berating his gal Kim Kardashian, West has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Let's not forget his tour had to be delayed several times due to the logistics of shipping a 90-foot screen around the United States.
Alec Baldwin - Alec was doing well and even had his own news show, but that all came crashing down due to his hobby of screaming at photographers. After allegedly hurling a gay slur at a man trying to take his picture, Baldwin's show was cancelled. He then made sure everyone knew he wanted to leave New York and no longer be famous - in a lengthy op-ed on Huffington Post.
Ian Watkins - This guy tried to have sex with a one-year-old girl. Does anything else need to be said?
Randy Travis - In February 2012 Travis was arrested for drinking outside a church. In August he was found completely naked and drunk after crashing his car into a construction zone. He had previously attempted to buy cigarettes at a convenience store while nude. A year later he suffered an upper respiratory infection and a stroke.
Andy Dick - Since 1999, Dick has had 10 run-ins with the law ranging from drug charges to indecent exposure. Less than a year after he appears on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, he was back to his old ways and most recently dodged a lawsuit from a man who claims Andy placed his genitals on his face at a comedy club.
Dennis Rodman - Rodman's issues with alcohol are well-known by now. After he attended rehab in 2008, he continued to drink while on the Celebrity Apprentice. His most recent stint in rehab came in 2014 after his bizarre trip to North Korea, a country he has defended publically several times despite its poor track record for human rights.
Toni Braxton - The singer filed for bankruptcy twice due to her habit of buying… house ware. She told ABC's 20/20 she got into debt in part due to buying china and Faberge eggs. After her second bankruptcy, she was investigated for trying to wire money to her ex-husband to save it from the feds.
