It’s one of the worst feelings in the world to find out that someone you admire isn’t really who you thought they were. We’ve all felt that way when our favorite actors, singers and public figures had their bad behavior put on blast after being arrested or exposed by someone from their past. Here are a few uber-popular stars who still remain in the spotlight (and still get a lot of love from fans) despite past violent behavior.
Terrence Howard actually has more in common with his “Empire” character, Lucious Lyon, than you might think. Like Lyon, Howard has an extremely dark past: the actor has been accused of domestic violence at least six times. Some of these counts include the time he allegedly approached his ex-wife with a knife before knocking her down and kicking her. He was also accused of choking and punching another ex-lover in the face.
