12 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Have Gone To Prison

Fame comes with wealth. No one can deny that. But fame also comes with pressure and temptation. Many famous people deal with struggles with healthy methods (diet, yoga, gym,..) while some can’t resist the temptation. Alcohol and drug addiction are still found among celebrities. Some even committed serious crimes, being sentenced to jail for drug trafficking, tax fraud, sexual assault, and even murder. Such scandals shocked the world and the careers of those celebs ended.

All that glitters is not gold. The lives of the rich and famous are not always what they seem. You might be shocked when knowing that a number of well-known people have gone to prison. These people themselves tore up admirers’ trust, so they find it hard to forgive or believe in such disrespectful human beings. Below are 12 infamous names we want to show you. Take a look!
