Celebrities You Probably Didn’t Know Committed Serious Crimes


Celebrities never seem to escape the limelight these days. They’re worshipped as demi Gods by some and widely adored by many. But it’s easy to forget they fall foul of the law too…

These celebs managed to not fall too far from grace, but we can’t forget that they committed some pretty awful crimes.

11. Jay-Z

In late 1999, Jay-Z was a guest at New York’s Kit Kat Klub with a large entourage in tow. The rapper allegedly stabbed record producer Lance Riviera, who he thought had copied his album “Vol 3… Life and Time Of S. Carter.”

He faced a possible jail time of 15 years, but pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour assault charge and was given just three years probation instead.
