Some of these celebs committed really horrible crimes which had no consequences on their careers. In some cases, actually, it was quite the opposite.

Being arrested after committing crimes, really horrible at times, led some celebs to greater fame and success. It might sound strange, but such episodes fostered these celebsʼ careers to the detriment of others’, likewise famous and talented, who almost disappeared from the scenes despite their criminal record being untouched. As we already know, nowadays you do not necessarily reach fame thanks to your values: you need gossip. And the most popular gossip is sad and unpleasant. Some might even think that some of them did it on purpose to create a sensation, though others risked very serious penalties for their crimes.
