I Know What You Did Last Season: Celebrity Secrets That Are Coming Back to Haunt Them

Just when you think they’re buried and gone, secrets have a way of coming back to haunt you. These celebrities have found themselves in hot, possibly career-ending water for secrets they thought they’d laid to rest a long time ago.

Iggy Azalea

Back when Iggy was still a minor, she allegedly recorded a sex tape with her then-boyfriend — who is now trying to sell it to the tabloids. Or selling it on Iggy’s behalf. We’ve heard that she’s selling it, he’s selling it, it’s not her, it is her but she was over 18… There are so many stories out there that the only thing we’re sue of is that Iggy’s up-and-coming status could take a serious hit if this tape gets out.

Nev Schulman

Remember this guy from the Catfish series? He’s in deep trouble from his college days when he allegedly punched a woman when she asked him to stop filming at an LGBT dance. Nev doesn’t deny that he punched her but he says that she started it. Either way, unless this story has a plot twist worthy of an episode of Catfish, Nev could be facing some serious career consequences.


In some unexpected fall out from the Ray Rice incident, Rihanna’s song was pulled from the inaugural episode of Thursday Night Football to avoid any potential controversy. But now that Rihanna has taken to Twitter to clap back at their victim blaming, we’re hoping that her career won’t take any more collateral damage.

Cee Lo Green

Cee Lo is in serious hot water. First a woman took him to court for allegedly slipping Molly into her drink and sexually assaulting her while she was unconscious. Then Cee Lo drove the final nail into his career’s coffin by Tweeting something to the effect of it can’t be rape if she’s unconscious. And now that his shows, tours and appearances are being cancelled left and right, this could be the end for the Crazy singer.

Ray Rice

As Elevator Gate continues to explode, Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension feels like an inevitability.

Robin Thicke

Robin got himself in deeper hot water recently for claiming that if anyone stole Blurred Lines from Marvin Gaye it was Pharrell — because he was too high to be any help in the songwriting at all. Or at least that’s what he told the court during the deposition earlier this month.

But throwing Pharrell under the bus isn’t his only problem. Robin must have also been too high to remember that he already admitted to borrowing Blurred Lines from Marvin in an interview back in 2013. Things aren’t looking good for Mr. Thicke.

Kanye West

Just when the world was getting used to Kanye’s onscreen rants, ‘Ye upped the antics by demanding that everyone stand up for his next song — including a disabled man in a wheelchair. When the man “refused” to stand up, Kanye stopped the show until someone in the crew could verify that he was actually disabled. Now that the tabloids are throwing around words like “harassment” and “discrimination” we wouldn’t be surprised if this incident comes back to haunt Yeezy’s career in a big way.

Stevie J and Joseline

Cocaine is a helluva drug. And rumors that Stevie J and Joseline are on it recently resurfaced when Joseline went HAM on the Love and Hip Hop reunion. Now it looks like these two are being evicted from their home, taking charity from castmate Benzino and spiraling down so quickly that we don’t even know if a Mona Scott-Young plot line can save them.

Yung Berg

There seems to be zero forgiveness in the hearts of Yung Berg fans for the 2008 incident when he shaded dark-skinned women by calling him “dark butts.” Recently Berg tried to come back on the scene with a new role on “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.”

But Berg brought up the old stuff himself by taking another jab at dark skinned girls: “You may hate me or have an opinion about me, but you’ve been in your car listening to records that I’ve written or produced. So I really get the chuckle at that. Now I’m laughing.”

And now that the tabloids are calling out Yung Berg again, it might be time for him to get back behind the scenes again.

Lindsay Lohan

Just when things were quiet on the Lindsay Lohan front, the falling star got herself into trouble again by claiming that she handled Whitney Houston’s body while doing court-ordered volunteer work at the LA morgue.

Not only is that a bizarre thing to brag about, the coroner says that it isn’t even true. The lie has Lindsay in hot water again, but lucky for her there’s not much more room to fall at the bottom.

Angelea Preston

Remember America’s Next Top Model contestant Angela Preston? She recently had her ANTM All Star title stripped when the truth about her escort past caught the attention of the show’s producers.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj might have some serious backpedaling to do. Once upon a time, she claimed that her backside was 100% real. But this viral concert photo has a lot of fans begging to differ.

MiMi Faust

Iggy isn’t the only celebrity whose sex tape is coming back to haunt her. Even though shower rod sales went through the roof, Mimi took to Twitter to say that she’s starting to regret selling her sex tape for profit now that the backlash feels like it’s never going to stop.


Karrueche’s catty behavior was fine when she was just Chris Brown’s on-again-off-again sending Twitter jabs at The Navy. But Karrueche’s shadiness came to bite her in a big way when she turned it on King Bey’s daughter Blue. We doubt anyone will give Karrueche another presenting job and even 106 & Park‘s career could be in jeopardy.

Momma Dee

Momma Dee’s flying flipper is 100% proof that shade will come back to haunt you. As soon as the prosthetic went flying during single release party at Club Sutra in ATL, fans stated bringing up the salt Momma Dee threw Diamond’s way when she told everyone that her teeth were fake during a radio interview. You can’t argue with Karma.
