21 Stars Accused of Domestic Violence

Celebrity domestic violence occurs even in the most seemingly-stable relationships.

Hollywood violence knows no gender, age, or reason, and some of these allegations are gonna curl your toes.

Who dragged his partner with a car? Who beat someone's face in so badly she needed to be hospitalized? Whose own mother and sister accused this superstar, award-winning actor of physical abuse?

Things are about to get real deep and dark in here, so we hope you have a flashlight, a blanket, and a box of tissues, because ugh

Also, hey, can someone remind these asshats that violence is never the answer?

That could be pretty helpful, all things considered. 

1. Chris Brown

5 Male Hollywood Celebs Who Suffered from Alcohol and Drug Addiction

Alcoholism has been one of society’s major problems. It continues to affect both the youth and adults regardless of race and religious affiliation.

Celebrities are not exempted from this social woe. Being human as they are, many have had struggles over their addiction to alcohol and there are still some who continue to battle alcoholism. These stars are more prone to this problem due to the fact that they can afford to drown themselves in their favorite drinks whenever they want to. In fact, you may have no idea they were or are alcohol addicts.

Ben Affleck

Actor Ben Affleck entered a rehab facility for alcoholism in 2001. He remained sober after that but after a decade was seen again drinking at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011.

Fortunately, the Armageddon star’s career was not affected by his alcoholism problem as he even won an Oscar award for Best Film for his film entitled “Argo.” On the contrary, it was his relationships that made an impact on his movies more.

Zac Efron

Unknown to many people perhaps including his fans, Zac Efron underwent a rehab program back in 2013. The High School Musical star eventually opened up to the media about his difficulty in battling drugs and alcohol. He considered it “a never-ending struggle.”

Going to a rehab facility is not easy on the pocket hence, it is a good idea to have a health insurance to shoulder one’s bills. Many insurance companies today cover various types of in-patient treatments. For one, Cigna covers alcohol and drug rehab similar to other global providers.

Michael J. Fox

Before he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, Michael J. Fox was having alcohol problems. Thankfully, he was able to get over it with the support of his family and since then has become a strong advocate of Parkinson’s after accepting his condition.

The actor has also set up the Michael J. Fox Foundation which funds research on Parkinson’s disease. He has also published a book called “Lucky Man” in which he shares his bout with alcohol and how he used it to escape fear caused by his diagnosis.

Mel Gibson

Actor Mel Gibson was arrested in 2006 due to a driving under the influence (DUI) case. But although his career was badly affected after that incident, he was able to reform and gained control of his alcohol addiction.

The Australian actor known for his films Mad Max, Lethal Weapon and Brave Heart is said to have a volatile behavior and has a habit of issuing controversial remarks.

Robin Williams

The late Robin Williams was then battling with not only cocaine addiction but as well as alcoholism. He started his journey to sobriety after his friend John Belushi died of an overdose. The two were known to attend parties together.

Unfortunately, the comedian suffered a relapse in the years before his death. His renewed addiction was reported to have caused his divorce with wife Marsha Garces in 2008.

Rosalind Ross: Pregnant with Mel Gibson’s NINTH Child!

Rosalind Ross and Mel Gibson are expecting their first child together.

Yes, someone was recently willing to have sex with Mel Gibson...

... but wait! It gets even crazier!

Rosalind Ross

This will be Gibson's NINTH child overall, which means someone was willing to have sex with Mel Gibson on, at minimum, nine different occasions.

The anti-Semitic actor is already a father to eight other children from previous relationships.

They are (deep breath...) daughter Hannah and six sons - Edward, Christian, William, Louis, Milo and Thomas - from his 28-year marriage to former dental nurse Robyn Moore.

He also has a six-year old daughter named with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Gibson and Ross started dating two years ago.

The former is 60 years old and the latter is 26 years old, which would be enough of a reason for us to question Ross' mental status.

But when you consider Gibson's history of anger and violence toward women, as well as his general disdain for Jewish people and overall demeanor... well...

... let's just hope there's enough money left over for diapers after Ross is finished with her many months of therapy.

Rosalind Ross and Mel Gibson

Ross makes her living as a champion equestrian vaulter, which a sport that requires participants to dance and perform gymnastic routines on horseback.

Really. This is an actual sport.

We'd have many questions for Rosalind Ross about it if we didn't first have so many questions about why she would give Mel Gibson the time of day, let alone access to her most precious flower.

Last month, Grigorieva reportedly lost millions of dollars from her original settlement with the actor after she broke the terms of their agreement by talking about their alleged domestic abuse case in an interview back in 2013.

In March of 2011, Gibson pleaded no contest to charges of battery, avoiding jail time in the process.

He was placed on 36 months probation at the time and ordered to undergo counseling.

The charges came about after multiple tapes of Gibson absolutely berated Grigorieva went public in the summer of 2010.

He called her a "pig." He made death threats against her. He sounded like such a raving lunatic that even Chris Brown would have told Gibson to calm the heck down.

As a result of the 46-year-old singer-songwriter’s slip-up, however, in talking about these incidents a few years ago, the Australian actor will no longer have to pay Grigorieva the remaining balance of their settlement.

He has already shelled out to her the first of the three installments, totaling $250,000.

He's a really terrible human being.

For the record, this will be Ross' first child.

Ninth Child on the Way for Mel Gibson

“She has her own life, but also seems to enjoy Mel’s … They are very much on the same page.”

Gibson has been enjoying more good news. His latest directorial effort, the World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge, out on Nov. 4, has already garnered Oscar buzz and received a 10-minute standing ovation at its debut at the Venice Film Festival on Sept. 4.

Gibson will soon head to Europe to shoot the film The Professor and the Madman, opposite Sean Penn.

Can you imagine anyone other than Tom Hanks as Forest Gump? What about anyone besides Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller?

Check them out below!

1. Michelle Pfeiffer, Silence of the Lambs

Michelle pfeiffer picture
It's true. Maybe you can't imagine anyone other than Jodie Foster as Clarice in Silence of the Lambs, but Michelle Pfieffer was actually offered the role first. She turned it down because it was too violent.

2. Al Pacino, Star Wars

Julie and al pacino
Are you sitting down? Because it's nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Harrison Ford, but Al Pacino was actually offered the role of Han Solo on Star Wars.

3. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Clueless

That's right. Sarah Michelle Gellar passed on the role of Cher in the movie Clueless, which eventually went to Alicia Silverstone. Gellar focused on slaying vampires instead.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio, Boogie Nights

Leonardo dicaprio at the oscars
Leonardo DiCaprio probably made the right choice with this one. He turned down the role of Dirk Diggler on Boogie Nights so he could instead star in a little film called TITANIC.

5. Johnny Depp, Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Um, seriously? Try really hard to imagine Johnny Depp as Ferris Bueller, you guys. Doesn't work, does it? It's a good thing he turned down that role, because nobody other than Matthew Brokerick could be Ferris Bueller.

6. Lindsay Lohan, The Hangover

Who knows what might have happened if Lindsay Lohan hadn't turned down the role of Jade on The Hangover? Instead, that part went to Heather Graham.

Insiders say Mel Gibson's new girlfriend met him through his production company; an equestrian champion, she's a screenwriter on the side.

Ross landed a meeting with Gibson to discuss a project and they hit it off; Gibson is staying in Sydney, where he's filming Hacksaw Ridge.

They're inseparable ... and soon she may show just how inseparable.

According to a new report, the 24-year-old Rosalind is pregnant with Gibson’s child ... which would be the Oscar winner's NINTH if so.

An inside source close to the couple (if you can call them that at this point) dished, “Rosey suddenly gave up drinking a month ago."

"She won’t admit that she is pregnant, but she's not denying it either.”

Mel has seven children by his ex-wife Robyn and fathered an eighth a few years ago courtesy of his previous girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.

We all know how that turned out, and here's hoping he at least likes Rosalind, because Gibson's track record with young baby mamas?

Dramas.
