100 Greatest Celebrity Scandals Of All Time

|

Celebrity scandals not only make for great reading, but say a lot about human nature. This is why we’re launching Scandalist with the 100 Greatest Celebrity Scandals Of All Time. We began this project by researching and gathering the follies of more than 250 celebrities. After whittling the list down to the 100 most essential, we locked ourselves in a conference room and nearly came to blows before agreeing on a final order. The scandals range from funny (Tom Cruise freakout) to sexy (Kim Kardashian‘s ass) to depraved (Charles Manson) to world-affecting (Monica‘s BJ’s).

In each post, we highlight where the scandal hit in the arc of each celebrity’s career and what impact it had on them. As a whole, these scandals provide a gold mine of odd trivia and pop culture memorabilia. Ever hear that Mick Jagger was rumored to have eaten a Mars Bar out of singer Marianne Faithfull‘s vagina? Or that Barry Bonds‘ Hall Of Fame ball literally has an asterisk on it? Read through all 100 juicy scandals, browse the list below, or skip ahead to the Top 10. Dig in!
