celebrity facts Celebrities Who Have Been Caught with Hookers

112k views 27 items Embed
Celebrities who have been caught with hookers include movie stars, musicians, politicians, and athletes who have either been allegedly linked to call girls or been straight up caught with their pants down with a prostitute. While many have bounced back from these shameful decisions, their careers are still marred with the asterisks that come with being involved in prostitution scandals.

Celebrity hooker scandals are not limited to just movie, TV, and music stars, though the incidents with actors Hugh Grant, Eddie Murphy, Charlie Sheen, and Danny Bonaduce are among the most well known, with many walks of life (allegedly) turning to the ladies of the night for some action. Perhaps most notably, politicians are frequently the center of these scandals with the Eliot Spitzer, Barney Frank, Silvio Berlusconi, and even the United States Secret Service all coming under fire for their political sexcapades.

Top professional athletes are no different. Few can forget the Tiger Woods hooker scandal or when baseball player Alex Rodriguez was linked to a prostitute. Heck, several members of the Minnesota Vikings NFL team did their deed (again, allegedly) en masse during a boat party in 2005.

Though not all of these prostitution scandal claims have been confirmed, each of these celebrities, be them singers, actors, athletes, or world leaders have all been in the news at one time or another for accusations of paying for sex. One thing is for sure though. They're not the first and certainly not the last celebrities to be caught with hookers.
