Even though they won’t like to admit it, most people just love hearing about celebrity scandals (even scandals regarding celebrities they claim not to like). There is just something about someone famous getting into some minor (or slight more major) trouble that appeals to the public. But after having heard about a few scandals, it stops being as interesting as it once was and becomes just a tad disturbing. Why do so many celebs go off the rails? Is the stress of fame that difficult to handle? Is the sudden appearance of money that much to deal with? Whatever the cause for these celebs to get into problems or trouble, one thing is clear: sometimes money makes you do (really) stupid things.

8 Paris Hilton

7 Lindsay Lohan

6 Amanda Bynes

5 Shia LaBeouf

4 Kanye West

3 Chris Brown

2 Miley Cyrus

1 Mel Gibson

This one actually took a bit longer for people to see than others on the list. At first, Mel Gibson was considered a handsome young actor who could charm the pants off of anyone with his adorable accent. Then he later turned into an Academy Award winning director, which caused Hollywood to take him on a different, more serious level. The Lethal Weapon star would appear on Oprah and other talk shows, still grinning and wisecracking away. But then this happened: in 2006, after being arrested for a DUI, Gibson was said to have made some Anti-Semitic remarks that still haunt him to this day. Then, in 2010, a recording surfaced that showed Gibson making threats to his then wife Oksana Grigorieva. After the phone call, a restraining order was put in place. It just goes to show that crazy can come at any time, even at a later age.
