If you’re a celebrity reading this, remember: you’ve got to stop falling asleep when you bring a groupie back to your hotel. Dozing off can leave you open to plenty of embarrassing consequences. In the age of social media, celebrity groupies might be especially quick to snap a picture after that hookup.
Justin Bieber learned about these perils firsthand, as did Olympian Usain Bolt. As for Lil Wayne, the story behind his unwitting post-sex selfie has a twist - the woman who posted it allegedly felt that her privacy had been violated when the image went viral.
Some celebrity post-coitus selfies are taken to be used to extort money, some are taken to make a point, and others are taken just because they're going to get so many likes and retweets. But no matter what the reasoning behind them, all of these famous stories of groupies capturing their moments with celebs are extremely sketchy. Even stars should have some privacy.
While on vacation in Brazil in 2013, Justin Bieber made the unfortunate choice to fall asleep in front of a groupie. When he passed out, she took some video of him and immediately posted it to social media.
The video was just one episode in Bieber's infamous trip to Brazil - it also included an alleged visit to the Brazilian "establishment" Centaurus, where women work for $1,200 per night. The weirdest part of the entire ordeal might be the detail that Bieber slept next to a baseball cap.

After winning gold medals in the 100 meter, 200 meter and 4x100 meter relay at the Rio Olympics, Usain Bolt was due for a party. While Bolt was out at the De Bracos Albertas club, a "Rio hotspot," he met up with Jady Duarte, a 20-year-old local who wasn't even sure who Bolt was. That didn't stop them from heading to the hotel, or Duarte from deciding that she should take some post-coital pics and send them to her friends via WhatsApp. The photos immediately went viral, and while Bolt refused to acknowledge the incident, he did fly home a day early.
