When it comes to the human nature of lying, celebrities are no different from normal people. With an image to protect, it is surprising to know the kind of lengths famous people go with lies. Take a look at the 15 biggest lies told by celebrities which made headlines and rocked the web:
15. Paris Hilton (I Don’t Do Drugs)
The amount of times Paris Hilton has been caught with drugs is sky-high. Surprisingly enough, the hotel heiress keeps denying using them every single time! The dazzling diva denied using them on Larry King Live and soon some pictures of her smoking weed popped online.
A year later, she was arrested for cocaine possession. Hilariously enough, Hilton denied having it while facing the judge in the court.
At one instance, her Beverly Hills mansion was infiltrated and the thieves stole several of her valuable belongings including jewelry, money, clothes and cocaine. Hilton still had the audacity to deny the fact that cocaine was in her home.
14. Pete Rose (I Have Never Gambled)
As one of the most decorated players in the history of Baseball, Pete Rose is a legend but is banned for the Baseball Hall of Fame. The defamed star fell into a pit of controversy when rumors erupted that he gambled on Baseball games.
For years, Rose denied the accusations. In 2004, the Baseball star confessed in his book My Prison Without Bars that he actually gambled on several games not only as a player but also as a manager. However, he also maintained that he never made a bet against his own team.
13. Victoria Beckham (They’re Real)
Fashion model and wife of retired football star David Beckham is very sensitive on the issue of her going under the knife. Victoria Beckham stated:
“I’m completely natural, except for my fingernails, and I have a bit of help with my hair and a bit of a St Tropez going on.”
However, Victoria told the truth in an interview with Vogue UK by accidentally revealing that she got her implants removed as she commented, “No torpedo bazookas, either. Gone.” When the interviewer requested for an elaboration, Victoria dodged the question.
12. Rick Ross (I was a Gangster)
Like any famous rapper, Rick Ross felt a lot of pride while boasting upon his rough life as a hustler who broke the law and did drugs before stardom. But that was revealed as a big lie considering the fact that he was actually busting gangsters rather than being one.
Ross was a correctional officer before being a rapper but he denied it. When an image of Ross wearing uniform appeared online, the rapper accused it being photo-shopped but soon admitted that he was indeed once a correctional officer.
11. The White Stripes (We’re Brother and Sister)
However, as the popularity of The White Stripes grew, it was revealed that the couple was married for four years and Jack born Jack Gillis took Meg’s last name and kept it ever since.
Jack explained his actions in an interview with Rolling Stones magazine that he lied about being siblings so the fans could focus on their music instead of their personal relationship.
10. Kim Kardashian (There is no Sex Tape)
Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon dated briefly and the reason behind their sudden split was revealed when the latter expressed his dismay upon his then-girlfriend lying about the sex tape she made with Ray J.
“This was my issue. We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape,”
stated Nick on Howard Stern Show. Kim kept on denying the existence of such tape until it was leaked online.
9. Milli Vanilli (We Sang the Song)
The song Girl You Know It’s True was a massive hit, spent eight weeks atop the Billboard Top 200 and earned Milli Vanilli the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
Unfortunately, it was not long when the band was exposed of lip syncing the song instead of actually singing it. Facing several lawsuits, a tarnished reputation and their award revoked, the band fell in a heap of trouble.
8. Lance Armstrong (I Never Took Enhancement Drugs)
Lance Armstrong is the greatest professional cyclist of all time. At least that was what everyone thought. Winning seven consecutive Tour de France titles, eyebrows were raised as speculation of Armstrong taking enhancement drugs grew.
Denying the allegations for years, Armstrong finally confessed his wrong-doings when United States Anti-Doping Agency proved that the athlete indeed took them.
