Halloween is fast approaching, and a potpourri of colorful celebrity scandals have occurred since last October. That means you’ll be faced with a confounding choice of costumes to choose from, so it’s better to start planning soon.
Many high-profile figures across industries found themselves in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons: major and minor indiscretions related to national security, sex, drugs, fashion, cars, food, finances, taxes and spouses.
PRNewser compiled a list by category of 30 people who made it through more than one news cycle. Some appear for the first time, while others tried to resurrect their reputations, with mixed results. We’ve also included links to the press coverage, in case you missed it.
If you’re planning to wear a Halloween costume of any other infamous, but non-violent figures, let us know in the comments section below.
This is only a partial list of early contenders, and there’s still time for new scandals to arise between now and late October, so stay tuned.
