Like every other years, some serious sex scandals got celebs into trouble in 2015. Some stars were arrested for their bad behavior and others were just embarrassed. Here are some of the sex scandals that grabbed our attention in 2015:
Jared Fogel was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison in 2015 after he pled guilty to one count of distributing child pornography and another count of traveling to have sex with a minor. Before his very public downfall, Fogel was the pitchman for Subway since ’99. He filmed hundreds of commercials for the sandwich chain, which has since severed its relationship with the convicted criminal.
One of the stars of “19 Kids and Counting” saw his personal and professional life crumble over the course of 2015. First, it was revealed that Josh Duggar had inappropriately touched five girls when he was 14 or 15, four of which were his sisters. TLC soon canceled his family’s hit reality show, and he parted ways with the Family Research Council. In July, Duggar admitted he cheated on his wife after his name was published in a security breach of the extramarital affair website Ashley Madison. Duggar checked himself into rehab in August.
In September, rumors of a Lil Wayne sex tape began surfacing. By October, reports claimed part of the tape had been leaked online. The rapper supposedly appeared in the video in just socks and along with two women. TMZ reported that the rapper’s lawyers threatened to sue anyone who posted the tape.
In July, 50 Cent was ordered to pay $5 million to a woman over her sex tape. The rapper was told to pay the hefty sum for the sex tape of the woman and her boyfriend that he got a hold of and posted online after he added his own R-rated narration.
There is still no official confirmation on why Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck called it quits, however multiple media outlets reported in 2015 that Affleck had an affair with the couple’s nanny. In June, they called it quits after 10 years of marriage.
