an important hearing if things couldn't get any worse Lindsay was also charged with jewelry theft in 2011 this series of fines and counseling attempts not only drained much of her fortune and

definitely remember this pink haired bubbly girl who played the main lead Stephanie in the series her brilliant performance in lazytown proved she was undeniably talented as she earned a Daytime Emmy

committing suicide through drug overdose Giuliana's life has been a bit of a roller coaster ride she was once dressed in a boob tube for the show and that was enough to turn her into a sex symbol she was later asked by an undercover officer if she would spend a night with him for $900 and she agreed upon which she was charged for prostitution she was also arrested for trespassing with criminal intent in the state of Virginia Juliana's wild adventurers eventually led her to take a break from her acting career and she went on to complete her education number eight amanda Bynes much like Lindsay Lohan Amanda Bynes also became America's Sweetheart at a very young age starred in her commercial at the age of seven and moved on to stage productions she later landed a big role in a Nickelodeon TV series and simultaneously hosted her own program as well Amanda also appeared in a WB sitcom followed by a list of successful rom-coms that proves she really was the man but

settle too well with Aaron as he was arrested for speeding in 2008 and was charged for being in possession of marijuana the very next year he became addicted to xanax as it helped him take care of his anxiety he couldn't get rid of the addiction for three years and finally got sober in 2012 but he was in heaps of debt due to his excessive spending and long-term investment in luxury items he filed

and starring in Katy Perry's music video in 2016 however in 2018 a lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Russell against Fortnight creators alleging they breached his copyright for including his signature dance move flossing fan reactions were not okay with that and some were even mocking him saying they'll sue Epic Games for using pinatas in the name of all Mexican people and maybe Teletubbies will sue next ouch and number four Britney Spears this pop star has been famous for having her face plastered in front of tabloids for numerous wrong reasons Britney started off from Disney's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but her real fame came in 1995 when she started her music career she was later in the spotlight for shedding her innocent image with skimpy clothes and mature song themes which can be seen in her transition from baby one more time to I'm a slave for you in 2006 she was caught driving with her son on her lap and this led to serious concerns of her being a responsible parent she was also accused of sending harsh messages to her fans after her second divorce she began clubbing a lot and checked in and out of rehabilitation centers like hotels in 2007 Spears broke the Internet by famously shaving her head before checking into a treatment center oops she did it again she was later charged with a hit and run parking lot incident and spent some time in the hospital for psychiatric evaluation before making her successful return in 2008 she released her chart-topping album circus and began her comeback in number three Miley Cyrus we would call Miley Cyrus extremely lucky for still being in the industry after trying to wreck her career with more than one wrecking ball Miley Cyrus shot to fame that had been unheard of with her debut as Hannah Montana on Disney Channel she became an overnight sensation with fans all over the world Miley climbed a ladder to success in both her singing and acting career with numerous chart-topping triple platinum albums she had sold-out concerts and rose to fame like no other Disney star before her but due to the pressure of maintaining the squeaky-clean image that Disney required Miley lost all control she rose quite a few eyebrows with their explicit performance at the 2013 VMAs as she showed a side that no one could have ever dreamed of and things just kept getting worse Miley was found guilty of drug abuse as well and had a troubled relationship with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth she later married him only to get divorced and number two Justin Bieber Justin Bieber was the very first YouTube sensation who shot to fame as soon everyone had the Bieber fever Bieber was the youngest child celeb to be selling out big arenas and became one of the biggest singing sensations in the world

presidents he was arrested driving under the influence and drag racing in 2014 and was found to be in debt for millions due to his extravagant spending there was a time when this beloved celebrity
