10 Celebrities Who Have Fallen From Grace!

Published on March 31, 2014. Updated April 5, 2017

Being famous isn’t easy for many celebrities. In fact, it can be downright toxic for some, which might help explain why they achieve an incredible amount of fame only to completely lose control of everything. Here are 10 celebrities who were once full of promise but, unfortunately, fell from grace.

10. Chris Brown

Chris Brown was at the peak of his career when he was charged with domestic abuse after he beat Rihanna unconscious in 2009. Since then he has remained a pretty controversial figure in the music industry. When he won the Grammy in 2012 for Best R&B Album, he was anything but modest. “HATE ALL YOU WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF!” Brown tweeted.

9. Justin Bieber

Like any child star, Justin Bieber’s image was squeaky clean when he became an international pop sensation, but that image has been sullied in the last year. The tween dream has been accused of attacking the paparazzi, egging his neighbor’s house and he was arrested on suspicion of drag racing and driving under the influence.

8. Jodie Sweetin

Jodie Sweetin – best known for her role as Stephanie Tanner on “Full House – is a perfect example of a child star who couldn’t hold it together as an adult. Even though she went on to complete a college degree, her addiction to drugs has controlled her life, ruined all three of her marriages and compromised her ability to secure custody of her two children.

7. Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman – who rose to fame as a child actor and became a teen idol after he starred in “The Lost Boys” – ended up tarnishing his acting career because of his drug addiction. Despite getting sober and making a conscious effort to get his career back on track, he has never been able to achieve the same level of success he had when he was young.

6. Tara Reid

Tara Reid was the girl next door when she starred on “American Pie;” however, after a couple of botched plastic surgery procedures and years of excessive partying, her image has been completely desstroyed. She has reportedly been to rehab numerous times, but the troubled star just can’t seem to stop clubbing and get her act together.

5. Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong became an international cycling star after winning seven consecutive Tour de France titles but, after being caught doping in 2012 by the U.S. Anti-Doping agency, he was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and was banned from cycling for life.

4. Lindsay Lohan

After the success of “Mean Girls,” Lindsay Lohan was one of the most sought after young actresses. Unfortunately, with her success came excessive partying, which ultimately tarnished her work reputation and ended her promising acting career.  The troubled starlet is now known for her trips to rehab, her endless struggles with the law and getting her life and career back on track.

3. Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson had proven that he was a skilled and bankable actor, as well as a gifted director and producer; however, after being arrested for drunk driving and for spousal abuse, he is now mostly remembered for his racist and sexist outbursts, which stem from his alcohol problems and his inability to control his hot temper.

2. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise was one of the most respected actors in Hollywood prior to 2005. Once the Oscar-nominated actor jumped on Oprah’s coach like a giddy school child, openly denounced psychiatry and modern medicine and began pushing Scientology on everyone, he literally committed career suicide and his reputation has never recovered.

1. Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods was one of the most renowned golfers of all time and a respected husband and father prior to 2009. Unfortunately, a sex scandal destroyed his squeaky clean image and cost him millions of dollars in lost endorsements. The disgraced golfer was accused of having extramarital affairs with a string of women from cocktail waitresses to nightclub hostesses. Although Woods issued a public apology and went to rehab for sex addiction, his reputation has never recovered.
