Celebs aren't always put on a pedestal, sometimes they are hated, mistreated and beaten up. When someone, other than a celebrity gets into a fight, it's usually not in the news for more than 30 seconds, but if celebrities are involved, then they get a full hour of in depth analysis complete with celebrity psychologists putting their 2 cents worth of opinions in. Everyone just wants to weigh in on the incident and facts get distorted or omitted altogether making way for biased opinions that are just made for the entertainment value.
A celebrity incident that involves someone getting their a$$ kicked usually has lots of booze and possibly other substances involved. These incidents are clearly observed whenever there's a video of these celebrities circulating on the internet. Female and male celebrities alike are both in danger of being beaten up, especially if they hang out in the wrong places, are friends with the wrong crowd or are just in the wrong line of work. Some celebrities are even attacked for the heck of it. Well as the saying goes: "Haters gonna hate."
12 Axl Rose got Whipped by the Guy who Made a Fortune Selling Underwear
Axl Rose, the long haired rock star frontman of Guns N' Roses, finally met his match in the form of the suave and fashionably sophisticated Tommy Hilfiger. Axl Rose is not a saint by all means. There are many incidents that involve him mistreating women and making threats to other musicians as well as critics. He was even called out a few times to fight or at least threats were exchanged but no fight actually materialized, until one fateful night in a New York bar. In 2006 Axl Rose and Tommy Hilfiger were both at the Plumm. Hilfiger was already apparently upset that his group had to make room for Axl's group. Axl Rose moved Hilfiger's girlfriend's drink (to prevent it from spilling), and it put Hilfiger over the edge. The argument escalated and Hilfiger dropped Axl Rose with a punch to the face.
11 Chevy Chase vs Bill Murray
Do you remember Chevy Chase from the National Lampoon's Vacation? Although Chevy doesn’t seem like the fighting type, he did get into it with Bill Murray backstage on Saturday Night Live. Of all the places to get into a fight with someone, they both chose their place of employment. Witnesses can't recall what exactly happened but they just recall that the brawl was ugly. Even when Chevy got beaten up he still came out on stage to deliver his opening monologue. This would not be the last venom spitting fight Bill Murray gets into as he was involved in an altercation with Lucy Liu on the set of Charlie's Angels.

9 Chris Brown is a Woman Beater
Rihanna is undoubtedly one of the most popular singers of this generation. Every year since her debut in 2005, it seems that Rihanna has put out hit after hit after hit – then Chris Brown came along and the hits just kept coming. In 2009 Rihanna was in a fight with her then boyfriend which resulted in her sustaining bruises on her face, a split lip, a black eye and even a bloody nose. Aside from getting physically beaten up, her life was also threatened by the R&B singer. His threats became grounds for him being detained by the LAPD. He was released however, after he paid a $50,000 bail. Rihanna went back to him after the incident but later split for good.
8 Katt Williams Gets His Butt Handed to Him by a Middle School Kid
Katt Williams, a 42 year old actor, rapper and comedian, got into a fight with a 12 or 15 or 17 year old kid. The reports vary as to the actual age of the kid but one thing is for sure, he was surely too big to be a 12 year old. After a soccer match with a few local Gainesville kids, Katt Williams got into a heated verbal exchange with one of them. Apparently, the 42 year old felt disrespected when this kid was throwing some shade his way. Katt walked off the field but was soon face to face with the kid again. Williams threw the first punch but was easily thrown to the ground by the large kid.
7 Tiger Woods vs a Cellphone, a 9 Iron, Hedges, a Curb, A Fire Hydrant and a Tree
In 2009, Tiger Woods' secret life as a cheating husband was exposed very publicly in a glorious spectacle that no one could look away from. Taking a cloak-and-dagger approach to uncovering his two (or is it many?) timing ways, Elin, Tiger's wife waited for him to leave his phone unattended before calling the suspected woman's number on the phone. She even had the patience to wait for Tiger to sleep before pretending to be him in the text messages, just to catch the woman on the side. However, when her suspicions were confirmed she did not wait until the morning. She flew into a rage throwing the cellphone right at his face, chipping a tooth. She then chased him out of the house with a 9 iron. Having taken Ambien, he was still woozy when he got in his car. He crashed into hedges, curbs, a fire hydrant and finally a tree. When neighbors got to them he was on the ground full of blood, the car's back seat window at the right had been smashed in and Elin was standing over him with a gold club in her hand.
6 Former President Bill Clinton Gets Face Scratched by Wife, Hillary
We all remember Former President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. A lovely brunette who was interning at the White House at the time. In a very public scandal, Monica Lewinsky was forced to testify as to her sexual relationship with the Commander-in-chief. The acts included fellatio and a cigar. Seeing as Bill is so popular with the ladies, we can only sympathize with Hillary when we discovered that she has had a long history of violence toward the charmer. Bill has been reportedly hit with hard objects, as well as scratched on the face and neck.
From one type of lady killer to another, the next on our list is...
5 OJ Simpson Almost gets Beaten to a Pulp in Prison
OJ Simpson was once a very famous running back in College and in the NFL. He is also known as the bungling and perpetually unlucky sidekick and partner, Nordberg, to Leslie Nielsen's Lt. Frank Dreben. He is also unlucky in his real life. He's now in prison locked in his cell or awkwardly relating to his fellow inmates because apparently he still feels like he's a big time celebrity who can do what he wants. When he cut the line for medication, an inmate told him to wait in line. He dismissed what was said and spit in the other person's direction. OJ was soon body slammed hard against the wall. His attacker then told him that he was a dead man.
4 Jay-Z Trapped in an Elevator with a Wild Woman
In 2014 the media world was hit with a shocking video of Solange Knowles attacking Jay-Z as soon as the elevator doors closed. Confusingly, Beyonce was with her man and was not visibly irate. It was Jay-Z's sister in law who apparently had some gripe with him. The video actually didn't shed light on why the incident took place because there was no accompanying audio released. One thing is for sure, Solange got a few good slaps, punches and kicks in before bodyguards were able to pull the feisty woman off the rapper. Many speculations float around as to what she was yelling about. Some even speculate that she was defending her sister and accusing Jay-Z of cheating with Rihanna.
3 Justin Bieber vs Orlando Bloom
Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom hate each other with a passion. If you take a look at their history (including their women, of course) you would find a very heated soap operatic type love-square. Orlando Bloom was linked to Selena Gomez when she and Justin were still a thing and Bieber was seen flirting and even reported to have dated Miranda Kerr. Everything reached its boiling point when the two famous young men found themselves at the same club in Ibiza. There's some irregularities in the reports as to who talked smack first, but videos of the incident clearly show the two men getting into a verbal argument which finally ends with Bloom slugging the Biebs in the face as the crowd cheered.
2 Shia and the Vomiting London Women
In 2013, while in London, Shia LeBeouf was minding his own business filming his two female subjects regurgitating and finally spewing previously imbibed drinks and ingested food out on the street, when suddenly a meddling stranger hit him twice in the face, once in the groin and continued to pummel him on the ground. Well, this reads like it was an art film shooting or an art performance gone awry, but the thing is it wasn’t. While in London Shia was apparently so fond of two girls he saw vomiting out on the streets that he felt compelled to take a video of them. A brave British knight wanted to defend their honor and ended up beating up the poor defenseless actor. One of the filmed ladies later said that if she had known it was Shia, she wouldn't have minded at all – because she has a crush on him.
1 Zac Efron Allegedly Runs Out of Gas On Skid Row
Zac Efron is probably one of the hottest young male actors of his generation. He started out as a relatively likable basketball star in the Disney hit High School Musical. He hung his singing chops when the movie franchise ended with the 3rd one. He then became a serious actor being cast in heavy roles as well as becoming a comedy actor. In 2014 when Efron was already a breakout movie hunk, he allegedly ran out of gas on skid row and ended up being in a brawl with vagrants. He described one punch to his face being the hardest one he's ever received. Drug speculations floated around the incident seeing that the area where the fight broke out is a known hotspot for drugs.
