Some stars have been with you since puberty or earlier. You might’ve heard one of their well-crafted verses when you experienced your first kiss , or nodded along sadly to one of their well-sung ballads after your first break up. Or, perhaps, you watched a certain film that uplifted you every single time, and you grew fond of the person cast in the lead role. Yes, these artist/actors found a neat place in your heart… that’s why it’s shocking when all of sudden they just disappear from the scene. They were killing it in their heyday, laying down track-after-track of generation defining hits, or they leading astounding roles in incredible movies, then they turned on ghost mode? Some of these celebrities quietly faded to into the background, while others disgracefully slide into oblivion, like Lindsay Lohan.
Tiger Woods was at the top of the world of golf for a long time, before it was discovered that Woods was spreading his seed around to every cheap piece of flesh that would have him, which ultimately destroyed his career, his marriage and his life. The Tiger days are now over.
As a result of tough times, many people have become frugal with their money but while that is normal behavior for everyday folks, these cheap celebrities have been accused of having short arms regardless of their deep pockets.
She may be a “Material Girl” but pop diva Madonna is stingy when it comes to tipping. Unfortunately, she’s been known to skip out on the bill without leaving a tip and when she does, sometimes Madonna’s math is a little off. According to one British tabloid, Madonna and her then-husband Guy Ritchie went out for a bite to eat. The bill for the duo came up to about $400 but Madonna, who is worth a reported $300 million, only left a tip of a measly $18, well short of the recommended 20% gratuity.
When will celebrities learn that once they sign on the dotted line for an endorsement deal, they have to walk a fine line and stay out of trouble? These stars found out the hard way, how their personal lives could negatively affect their bank accounts.
A few weeks ago Paula Deen found herself in a public relations nightmare after the transcript of her deposition in a racial and sexual harassment lawsuit leaked. When asked if she’s ever used the “N-word,” the Queen of Butter replied, “Yes, of course.” Although Deen tried her best to deny she was a racist, she was vilified in the media. As the story grew, one endorsement deal after another fell by the waist side. The Food Network opted not to renew Deen’s contract. Home Depot, Walmart, Target and Smithfield all abandoned ship. Once the second highest paid celebrity chef, it is estimated that Deen’s slip of the tongue could cost her as much as $12.5 million in earnings when the dust finally settles.
Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have publicly battled with drug or alcohol but others have entered rehab for other underlying problems. These 15 celebs sought help for problems other than substance abuse.
Mariah Carey’s diva behavior is legendary but back in 2001, the “Beautiful” singer hit a low point in her career following the release of her semi-autobiographical movie Glitter. After the film tanked, Carey was dropped from her record label. Posting ominous messages on her website to her fans, it was clear something was wrong with Carey. Succumbing to the pressures of the industry, Mimi had a public meltdown and went into treatment. Fast forward four years and a new record deal later, Carey drops The Emancipation of Mimi, which wound up being the biggest album of that year, and returns to superstar status.

For their undeniable talent and charisma, athletes are some of our most adored public figures. But when they fall short of expectations by breaking laws, doing steroids, and otherwise acting out of character they can quickly go from beloved to hated – just as these 14 have.
Dating in Hollywood is hard ya’ll, and sometimes celebrity women have to go that extra mile to keep a good man at home. While the rest of us are wasting time cooking, cleaning and breaking him off, these chicks are handing out checks, razor blades and free all access passes to all the groupies their men can stand. Here are some of the most drastic ways the rich and famous are rumored to have tried to keep their boos from straying.
Pay His Way
Britney must be getting her dating tips from Love and Hip Hop. She keeps her side pieces in line with a pay check. She hired her new man David Lucado to be her personal assistant. A friend of the couple told Star magazine, “She’ll offer him a sweet deal so he’ll feel obligated to stick around.”
“D*mn, Why They Wanna Stick Me For My Paper?” Celebrities Who Lost Major Endorsement Deals For Acting A Fool
If Rick Ross and Lil Wayne have taught us anything, it’s that you had better watch your filthy mouth, because it could very well hurt your pockets. But they aren’t the first celebrities to get the boot from a company for acting a complete donkey. Or in the case of some of the celebrities on this list, for just being themselves. Here are 10 who lost lucrative endorsement deals over the years because of their antics.
It still makes me sad to think about how on top of the world Chris Brown USED to be. Back in 2008, he was the guy every mom wanted their young daughters to date, and he was blowing everybody’s mind with his great dance moves and catchy songs. But then that terrible altercation occurred the night before the Grammys in February of 2008, and his fame was forever altered. And of course, he was also hit in the pockets. Brown was dropped as the spokesperson for Wrigley’s gum, and while you might say, “Who cares about some Doublemint Gum?” if it wasn’t for writing jingle for the company, we would never have “Forever” (“Double your pleasure, double your fuuuuuun…”).
Jesse James deceived us all as he played doting husband to America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock for five years. Then his affair with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee became headline news. Even three years later, it’s not far from the public’s mind.
James’, 43, name is back in the news this week as he’s just walked down the aisle for the fourth time. Bride no. 4 is 35-year-old Alexis DeJoria, a professional drag racer—and the daughter of billionaire John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of Paul Mitchell hair products. The couple, dating for seven months, got engaged after only one month together. Both have kids from previous relationships.
In 2011, James also popped the question to tattoo artist Kat Von D, but his repeat cheating prevented them from tying the knot.
After three failed marriages and the gusto to try for a fourth time, it’s clear James likes the idea of marriage. But that does not mean he’s good at it. And not surprisingly, he’s got a lot of A-list company in the Worst Hollywood Husbands Club. (Do you think these guys have secret group meetings to discuss just how terrible they are at being husbands?)
1. Tiger Woods
If a Tiger can’t change his stripes, can Tiger Woods stop being a cheetah? In one of the most epic cheating scandals to ever grace a public figure, Tiger Woods’ numerous infidelities were front-page news for weeks. After the majority (we think) of the mistresses came forward, Tiger sought treatment for his sex addiction. He lost his beautiful wife Elin along the way, and she’s since moved on with billionaire Chris Cline. While Tiger’s got his golf game back, we can’t imagine any woman on the planet thinking he’s marriage material—even you Lindsey Vonn.

Well, Well Well. You know what they say, “They always come back.” And that’s exactly why pro-golfer, Tiger Woods is rumored to be doing ex wife Elin. You may remember back in 2009, Woods embarrassed the hell out of her when word of his numerous affairs came to light. Woods admitted during his sex addiction therapy to sleeping with 121 different women, including everyone from waitresses to adult video stars, to the daughter of his neighbor, a 21 year old young woman.
I know there are a lot of skeptics out there, but this number and Woods’ sloppiness leads me to believe that he really does have an addiction. Sleeping with adult video stars and neighbors is behavior of a man who just has some type of mental issue. To risk not only his health, his marriage and family and all he had achieved in his career, with that many women is nothing short of some type of sickness. Complete, reckless abandon.
But now, three years after the divorce papers were signed, rumors are swirling that Tiger has proposed to his ex wife for the second time. Initially, the National Enquirer and now several other news outlets are reporting that around Christmas time, Woods got down on one knee and asked Elin to marry him again. This time, he’s bringing a $200 million prenup to the table.
Supposedly, Elin is considering the offer but also has a demand of her own. She wants a $350 million cheating clause. Maybe she’s thinking, if and when Tiger is ever tempted to step out again, he’ll consider at least 55o reasons why he should walk away.
Though Elin has dated a few men since the two split three years ago, it would seem that if she’s even considering the offer, she still loves dude. She really doesn’t need any money as this point, considering she won $110 million in their divorce settlement. And if that’s not enough to convince you, think about how she reacted when she found out about his infidelity. Homegirl flipped, chasing him with golf clubs, beat and bloodied him and someone caused him to wreck their car in the process. Those are the actions of a betrayed woman in love. If she was just there for the money, she would have just packed her bags, grabbed the kids and collected her check. If any of those feelings from three years ago, still linger, I wouldn’t be surprised if these two find their way back to the altar.
Elin is said to be in the process of building a $12 million home in North Palm Beach, Florida. Maybe now, she’ll have an additional person moving in there with her.
It’ll be interesting to see if the rumors are true and how this all plays out. Do you think Elin is still in love with Tiger? Should she take him back?
It’s officially the internet age and everything celebrities Tweet, speak or claim is recorded. But that fact escapes a few of the rich and famous from time to time. Here are a few big celebrity lies your favorite stars have been caught in.
This all started when TMZ posted a clip of Tyga from an unaired MTV show called “Bustas.” In it, an 18-year-old Tyga bragged that he was named after Tiger Woods by wealthy parents who drove Range Rovers and brought him up in The Valley.
And that was news to Tyga fans who thought that the rapper was from Compton. Since the video’s release, Tyga says his parents were only wealthy during the time they were taping the show and that he’s really from Compton. OK Tyga.
