Everybody Can’t Handle The Spotlight: Celebrities Whose Fame Literally Drove Them Crazy

December 13, 2012 ‐ By Meghan Williams

Some stars seem like they were born crazy, but for others, it seems like were it not for the fame, and all associated pressures (and readily available substances), they would never have been so nutty. Can you think of a celebrity who’s lost it right before your eyes? – I can think of fifteen. Flip to find out a few entertainers who can’t seem to handle the spotlight.

Katt Williams

When Katt Williams made his comedic debut he was crazy funny, but now that he seems to have gone crazy crazy, few of us are laughing. Over the course of just one month, Katt has been accused of punching his personal assistant, arrested for hitting a man over the head with a bottle, sued for fudging up a performance at the Oakland Oracle Arena, arrested for attempting to outrun the police on a 3-wheel motorbike, and filmed “pimp” slapping a Target employee. What’s the next stop on Katt Williams’ crazy train? Hopefully somewhere he can get some help.

    More importantly, are people not concerned as to why his mama chose to name him “Angus”?! What?! Was “Steak” or “Hamburger” already taken?!

  • TheLadyEbony

    Some of these people aren’t crazy, they’re drug and/or alcohol abusers.

  • Kellz

    Kanye should be on here for dating kim(the worlds biggest slore) alone

  • sabrina

    I wholeheartedly believe that Angus T. Jones and Dave Chappelle WERE NOT CRAZY! They knew what they were doing, and what they were talking about.

    It’s people like “writer” Meghan Williams who continue these insidious rumors, and more importantly, ignore the serious implications of mental illness in our society. Sure, some of the people on the list are emotionally/mentally unwell, but others, such as Dave Chappelle, who was dubbed “crazy” for walking away from the Hollywood BS, is probably more sane than all of the “writers” at MN combined. Are you a clinical psychiatrist, Ms. Williams? Please do not answer the question…it is a rhetorical question and given that you submit poorly-written articles for this plummeting website, we all know the answer. Watch “Inside the Actors Studio” with Dave Chappelle. MN, I am done with your juvenile stories. Keep hiring tweens and perpetuating ignorance…you seem to be doing rather well in that department!

    • TheLadyEbony

      Ohh, you’re right. She should’ve been number 1.

  • ANTMilf

    Where’s Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Nicki Minaj? They’ve been acting cooky lately thanks to Instagram, Twitter, and having “I’m bigger than God because I have money” attitudes.

    • AJ389

      Agreed indeed.
