List Rules Vote up the greatest years for scandalous celebrity events.

Public meltdowns, bitter divorce battles, drug scandals, arrests, and murder. Sometimes, celebrity scandals are more exciting than the films and television shows that famous people star in. You may be aware of the 2015 scandals that seized the media's attention years ago, but in a pre-Instagram and pre-Twitter era, the celebrities were equally debauched and scandalous.

So let's rank celeb scandals by year. Because if a mini series hasn't been made about it, you might not be aware of some of salacious goings-on or the years that stars had crazy meltdowns. Starting with 1990, peruse each years' outrageous behaviors to see which film actors were caught with hookers and which popular icons were caught with drugs. Vote up the years that have the most memorable scandals that had you following the news with eyes wide open.
