Celebrities (oddly enough) are no strangers to a jail cell; one would think that when you have an image to uphold, you would want the cleanest record possible, meaning no contact with a jail cell for any reason. Clearly this is not the case and sadly enough, celebs going to jail is more of an epidemic than celebrities being actual role models. There are a select group of notable figures that you can almost guarantee will get arrested, go to jail or get in trouble with the law at least once a year. It makes you wonder why; is this a way of staying relevant? Is this a simple case of trouble just following them around? Could their luck really be that bad? 2015 has brought out the worst in a few notable figures like Bill Cosby, Shia Labeouf, Chris Brown, etc, getting arrested for sexual abuse allegations, violent domestic fights and the familiar drunk and disorderly. There is a tiny bout of narcissism behind these arrests and allegations, and because some of these charges are so significant chances are these celebs will be dealing with these charges as we roll into 2016. Once you have drawn attention to yourself with the law there is a side of you that will always be a target, especially when you keep committing the same crimes over and over again (Chris Brown). So here is a list of celebrities that will most likely do some time behind bars in 2016, because hey, why change now when you have already gone too far?
10 Conrad Hilton Jr.
Hilton Hotel heir Conrad Hilton Jr., comes off as an entitled brat every time he gets arrested; whether it is for drugs, alcohol or flat out breaking into his girlfriend's house, he is a loose cannon. It has become more apparent that he is making a name for himself as a straight up troublemaker. He is only 19-years-old and has already racked up an impressive rap sheet, so where does he go from here? That’s easy, most likely another arrest and quite possibly jail. He is already getting dinged for violating the restraining order his ex-girlfriend put on him and he cannot seem to control his alcohol. We all know that an obsessive ex boyfriend and alcohol never mixes well together.
9 Justin Bieber
8 Chris Brown
7 Scott Disick
6 Terrence Howard
5 Caitlyn Jenner
Although she seems to be kind of in the clear right now, Caitlyn Jenner was involved in a deadly accident back in February of 2015. A woman was instantly killed and almost immediately, talks of manslaughter charges were brought up. Although a video surfaced that showed that Jenner may not be totally at fault for the accident, she is currently being sued by two people involved in the accident; the step children of the woman killed instantly, and another driver who sustained significant damage. How unfortunate for Caitlyn considering she is currently catching her second wind in life. 65 is not the age you want to start racking up a rap sheet at.
4 Snoop Dogg
June 2015 marks the latest arrest for rapper DMX, for allegedly failing to pay child support. The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, allegedly owes $400,000 in back child support. Simmons is no stranger to jail, having been arrested in the past for drug charges, jumping bail and robbery. This latest charge could be the one that makes him spend some real time in jail and let’s be honest, if this charge does not get him, another one will. He just seems to attract drama and is constantly screwing up.
2 Nick Gordon
So far it looks like the DA is going to try and charge Nick Gordon with involuntary manslaughter, for his participation in the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. Gordon, who has always maintained his innocence, was suspiciously sitting around the house while Brown was drowning in her bathtub. None of this looks good for Gordon or Max Lomas, the friend who came to visit them and discovered Brown in the tub. There is a good chance that if Gordon does get charged he will end up doing a little bit of time in the big house. 2016 may turn out to be a bad year for him.
1 Bill Cosby
It is a very real possibility that once beloved TV dad Bill Cosby, could go to jail for a long, long time; with allegations of drugging and sexually assaulting over 30 women reportedly beginning in the 70s. The evidence is really piling up and it looks like Cosby has begun to run out of excuses. Although the statute of limitations has come and gone for several of the allegations, this case is so severe that it looks like he has a very slim, tiny, minuscule chance of beating this. At least he can eat all that jello he has been promoting for years in his new 6x8.
