It was recently announced that Bradley Cooper’s latest girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk, is pregnant. When the news broke, everyone gasped because she trapped him good! Cooper is a notorious playboy, and bounces from girl to girl with little time in between. He has a love ‘em and leave ‘em mentality that goes all the way back to his four month marriage to Jennifer Esposito. But he has always managed to get away with no strings attached… until now. Many are saying that Shayk did the unthinkable – she got the superstar to be hers forever by having his baby. It’s a gold digger’s dream come true, and is also every man’s worst nightmare.
Meanwhile, rumors are swirling that Prince Harry has knocked up his latest lady, American actress Meghan Markle. This got us to thinking about what other bachelors got the royal screw job. As you will see, many seemingly untouchable stars have been trapped by their significant others sinking their claws into them. And it’s not just male celebrities who are preyed on. Some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women have been trapped by men. And as this list will show you, there are many, many ways that stars can be trapped. From pregnancies to no pre-nups, from secrets to sex, from money to manipulations, stars get trapped all the time.
In a get rich quick, celebrity-obsessed, instant gratification society, there are plenty of players who want a slice of what stars have. And these people will happily use every trick in the book to ensure that they “get theirs” for as long as possible. One would think that celebrities would be immune to such machinations, but they’re only human. They get sloppy with their birth control, they eschew advice from friends, family and attorneys, and many are just plain stupid.
15 Kelly Preston
14 Tony Romo
Tony Romo is currently rehabbing from a back injury and his best days are probably behind him. But who can forget when he was on top of the world and dating Jessica Simpson? They were a major power couple, and whether you loved them or hated them, you probably followed their every move. They were seemingly made for each other since Simpson was a Texas native and Romo played for the famed Dallas Cowboys. Back then, he was the king of football and she was the queen of reality, so it was only fitting that they got together.
13 Warren Beatty
Most millennials only know Warren Beatty as an aging actor. But in his heyday, he was quite the playboy in Hollywood. He dated everyone – and we mean everyone. The list includes, but is not limited to Stephanie Seymour, Madonna, Melanie Griffith, Daryl Hannah, Mary Tyler Moore, Janice Dickinson and Goldie Hawn. In between there was a ballerina, a princess, an heiress, Barbra Streisand and supposedly Fran Drescher. It’s even been rumored that Beatty slept with more than 12,000 women. But only one woman trapped him – Annette Bening.
12 Adam Levine
11 Natalie Portman
We’re used to male stars getting their girlfriends pregnant out of the blue. It seems like the girlfriends of the rich and famous always forget to take the pill or at least put on a show of taking one in front of their celebrity partners only to be popping Tic Tacs on the sly. So it’s a switch to see a female celebrity get trapped by a man via pregnancy – but that’s exactly what happened with Natalie Portman. She met her baby daddy Benjamin Millepied on the set of Black Swan. She was the star and he was a choreographer. After a short romance, Portman announced in a one-two punch that she was pregnant with his child and that they were engaged. Many thought that Millepied trapped Portman. There’s nothing like having a baby with a celebrity to cement one’s status. Because, even if the relationship doesn’t last, baby mamas and baby daddies generally get perks for years and years. They get houses, cushy jobs and regular allowances.
10 Ben Affleck
9 Katie Holmes
8 Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp likes to be in relationships. He even likes to be engaged. But married? Only occasionally. That’s why it was such a shocker when he married Amber Heard. After all, he wouldn’t even marry the mother of his two children. So it only goes to follow that Heard had something over him, and essentially trapped him like a bear.
7 Ryan Phillippe
6 Sean Penn
5 Beyonce and Jay-Z
4 Lisa Marie Presley
3 Brad Pitt
We know everyone hates Brad Pitt right now. He’s still reeling from his break-up with Angelina Jolie and accusations of child abuse. And there are still those who hold a grudge against him for leaving Jennifer Aniston for Jolie. But the fact is that Jolie kind of trapped Pitt.
2 Scarlett Johansson
1 Paul McCartney
Heather Mills will go down as the most brilliant gold digger in history. Frankly, we’ve got to give the girl a hand because Sir Paul McCartney fell for her b.s. hook, line and sinker. The former model and activist won McCartney over with her charms, despite warnings from his friends about her true nature. We understand that part, but what we will never be able to wrap our heads around is that he didn’t have her sign a pre-nup. Mills helped to seal the deal with McCartney by having a late in life baby with him. She always got a lot of bad press, but it was tempered by the fact that people had a soft spot for her because was an amputee and had been homeless at one point in time. She could be a very sympathetic figure. Basically, Mills trapped him six ways to Sunday. The marriage was a disaster, and was marred by bitter fights and tensions with McCartney’s daughter, fashion designer Stella. By the end of it both parties were quoted as having said that they were just glad it was over. Obviously Mills was a little more pleased, as she walked away with tens of millions of dollars.
