5 Sex Scandals Of The Famous

The Jeffree Star and Kanye West Saga

In 2021, America was gripped by a blend of conspiracy theories and sex scandals. Social media was abuzz with rumors suggesting that the speculated divorce between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian was due to an alleged affair between West and beauty tycoon Jeffree Star. Given that both men resided in Wyoming and had previously lived in the same Californian community, the internet was rife with speculation. Star himself addressed the rumors, stating his preference for taller men, a category that 5'8" Kanye doesn't fit into.

The Infamous Kim Kardashian Tape

The Kardashians are no strangers to scandal. In 2007, Kim Kardashian was relatively unknown until a sex tape involving her was leaked online. This incident catapulted her into reality TV fame. With the guidance of her mother, Kris Jenner, the Kardashians have become one of America's most recognized families. Some speculate that Kris Jenner released the tape to boost her daughter's career. Regardless of who was responsible, the incident undeniably propelled the Kardashians into the limelight.

Pee Wee's Unfortunate Incident

In 1991, Paul Ruebens, better known as Pee-Wee Herman, was arrested for indecent exposure in an adult movie theater. Given his reputation as a beloved children's show host, the arrest caused quite a stir. However, instead of facing public shaming, Ruebens received support from fans. He denied any wrongdoing but admitted to being at the theater. In 2004, Ruebens faced additional charges related to inappropriate content involving minors. He claimed the images were part of a historical art collection and settled the case with a fine, probation, and registration as a sex offender.

Arnold's Hidden Offspring

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former Governor of California, had a secret that even his wife, Maria Shriver, was unaware of. During his marriage and tenure in office, Schwarzenegger had an affair with his housekeeper, which resulted in a child. The LA Times exposed this secret after Schwarzenegger left office. Upon learning he was the father, Schwarzenegger began financially supporting the child. The revelation led to his divorce from Shriver, but public opinion of the actor remained largely unchanged.

Eliot Spitzer's Expensive Taste

Former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer's downfall was brought about by a New York Times article in 2008. The article revealed Spitzer's involvement with a high-end call girl from a prostitution ring known as the "Emperor's VIP Club." His escapades, costing $1,000 an hour, led to a total expenditure of $15,000 over six months. To avoid impeachment, Spitzer resigned as Governor. The scandal had international repercussions, leading to the resignation of a British Ministry of Defense member also linked to the ring.
