Although they have a lot of fans who sigh for them or have partners, some stars prefer to pay for sex with professionals. Here is the list of ten celebrities who were allegedly caught with prostitutes.
1. Hugh Grant
Probably the most famous example of a celebrity caught up with a prostitute is British actor Hugh Grant. He was caught in 1995 with Divine Brown and immediately pleaded guilty, so he received a symbolic fine and two-year probation.
“I think you know in life, you know what is a good thing to do and what a bad thing to do, and I did a bad thing, so there you have it,” he said shortly after the scandal on the Jay Leno’s show. Hugh was then in a relationship with the beautiful actress Elizabeth Hurley. She forgave him for the incident, but they later broke up.
2. Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen had problems with alcohol and drugs, so they kicked him out of the popular series “Two and a Half Men”. In the early 1990s, police discovered the illegal prostitution business of Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and found Sheen’s checks with her.
Sheen continued to pay for sex, so in 2011 the media outlets revealed that he spent more than $ 25,000 on a wild weekend with three women. But his risky parties cost him his health, and in 2017 he revealed to the public that he was HIV positive. The actor pointed out that he always tells his partners about his diagnosis and uses condoms regularly.
3. Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods first became known as a professional golfer and later for his sex addiction. He cheated on his wife, model Elin Nordegren with a number of women, and there were plenty of prostitutes among them. In 2009, the media reported that he was in regular contact with a madam who found him women for sex.
The New York Post revealed that the golfer paid more than $ 60,000 for the services of prostitutes. His wife divorced him and earned about $ 100 million due to a prenuptial agreement, and he lost contracts with many sponsors, including Gatorade and General Motors.
4. Alex Rodriguez
Jennifer Lopez’s fiancé Alex Rodriguez also had a habit of regularly hiring prostitutes from Madame Kristin M. Davis during 2006 and 2007. Emails exchanged by Rodriguez and Davis came to light, and in 2013 Michael Gross wrote a book about stars who used the services of prostitutes, including a retired baseball player.
In 2007, the media outlets claimed that rapper Eve hired a prostitute while she was in Miami. She vehemently denied it. “First of all, I think that’s ridiculous and number two, if I. wanted to have sex with somebody, then I definitely wouldn’t order a prostitute,” she pointed out.
6. Jerry Springer
Host Jerry Springer became famous for his show full of dramatic secrets and fights, and he himself was part of the scandal. When he ran for governor of Ohio in 1982, he said he hired prostitutes and was not ashamed of it and was not afraid of the truth, even though it was painful. He did not win but got his scandalous show “The Jerry Springer Show”, which began airing in 1991.
7. Eddie Murphy
Comedian and actor Eddie Murphy was arrested for soliciting a transgender prostitute in 1997. He told police it seemed like she was having a hard time, so he offered her transportation. “I did nothing wrong. I was trying to be a good Samaritan, and this is what happens,” Murphy said. However, the sex-worker claimed that Murphy had placed two $100 bills on her legs at the time.
8. Wayne Rooney
Wayne Rooney has been married to Coleen since 2008, and they have four children, but he has become famous for his extramarital affairs that she constantly forgives him for. The prostitute accused the football player in 2010 of paying her to participate in a threesome with him and another woman. Rooney said he regrets paying for sex with prostitutes.
9. Franck Ribery
Footballer Franck Ribery admitted in 2010 that he had sex with a prostitute, but that he did not know she was a minor. His colleague Karim Benzema was also involved in the whole case, and a French court initiated proceedings against both of them. But the indictment was dismissed because there was no evidence that they knew the prostitute Zahia Dehar was a minor. Ribery has been married to his wife Wahib since 2004, and they have four children.
10. Boy George
“Culture Club” singer Boy George was sentenced to 15 months in prison back in 2009, for imprisoning a male escort at his London home. The singer allegedly became paranoid that the sex-worker had hacked into his computer. Reportedly, he handcuffed the man and beat him “with all sorts of sex toys and chains.”
