Savagery, Shade & Saltiness: Here Are The Biggest Celeb Scandals of 2016
2016 has arguably had its fair share of WTF moments from Trump's election, to the increasing ridiculousness of the choker trend, we’re all happy to say #GOODBYE2K16 soon. This craziness has also lent itself to our fave celebs so here are the most scandalous moments of the year.
Taylor vs Kimye
Imma let you finish...but this is one of the greatest celebrity feuds of all time. Just when we thought the notorious Kanye vs Taylor battle was finally coming to a close, the two biggest egos in music came head-to-head once again upon the release of ‘Famous’ from Kanye’s hyped album The Life of Pablo. Swift fans watched eagerly, expecting the triumph of their #queen, however this time Kanye had a secret weapon in his arsenal - Kim Kardashian. In July, almost 6 months after the tracks release Kim exposed Swift’s snake ways via a Snapchat video recording, uncovering her approval of the song. Swift was quick to clapback with the meme-worthy, "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative." At least we know what the inspiration behind Bad Blood 2.0 will be?
Becky With The Good Hair
Queen B dropped her groundbreaking social and politically fuelled visual album ‘Lemonade’ in April, receiving instant acclaim from critics and fans. Whilst bangers like 'Formation' and 'Freedom' dominated the airways, listeners were fixated on one particular lyric – who was Becky with the good hair?? Was there trouble in paradise for music’s most powerful couple? Bey managed to settle the frenzy after fellow ‘Sorry’ songwriter Diana Gordon said, "Becky’ didn’t refer to ‘just one person." Fans let out a sigh of relief. For now, they’ll continue to watch her SLAY.
Kim Kardashian Robbed at Gun Point
On October 3rd, the world was rocked with the news of Kim Kardashian’s gun point robbery in a luxury Paris hotel. In town for fashion week, the world’s most followed celeb was tied up and locked in the bathroom, robbed of up to $10 million worth of jewellery. Fellow celebs and onlookers took to twitter, accusing the star of staging the event as a publicity stunt. Kim has been quiet ever since, drastically lessening her visibility on social media and making hardly any public appearances.
Jelena's Insta Fued
Jelena sparked social media hysteria this year when the former baby faced lovebird’s shade throwing match led to the Biebs deleting his Instagram account. “If you can’t handle the hate, stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol,” Gomez posted in response to Justin’s snaps of then girlfriend Sophia Richie. The saltiness reached a climax as Biebs accused Selena of using him for attention and deleting his account #loveyourselfselena.
The legendary actor experienced a disastrous fall from grace at the beginning of this year. Just when you thought the awkwardness from the infamous dog smuggling scandal was enough to tarnish the timelessly cool actors rep, ex-wife Amber Rose released devastating domestic abuse claims. The 30-year-old actress took out a restraining order on Depp, and attributed his behaviour to a nasty drug and booze habit.
Blac Chyna 'Cheats'
Scandal might as well be Blac Chyna’s middle name. The former stripper has managed to grip the attention of the social media world over the last year with her knack for drama and signature pettiness. In September, claims of Chyna’s infidelity with former Glee cast member Pilot Jones surfaced. This all led to one massive question – was Rob Kardashian the father of her child? Baby ‘Dream’ arrived at the beginning of the month and with an on-going legal battle with the Kardashian sisters, we’ll be seeing more Blac Chyna scandal in 2017.
Questioning Kim Kardashian’s selfie choices in a public forum is a very ballsy move – that’s exactly what 19-year-old actress Chloe Moretz did in July this year. Moretz pleaded with Kim via Twitter to, "realize how important setting goals are for young women," after the release of the internet shattering naked selfie. Sister Khloe quickly came to her defence attempting to expose a photo of Moretz’ bare bottom on Twitter. The picture was then believed to be a fake but still pretty awks...
Just last month Yeezy took a scary turn after cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour dates due to a hospitalisation. Kanye apparently suffered a ‘psychotic episode’ and has been suffering with extreme paranoia. Hopefully the New Year brings some peace and calm to the lives of 'Ye and Kim!
Gigi's Milan Madness
A scary video of a Ukranian prankster violently grabbing model Gigi Hadid was revealed by TMZ in September. Celebs are no stranger to stalkers and creeps, but there was something particularly chilling about the repeat offender man handelling one of the worlds most famous models. The Daily Mail released a distasteful headline saying the model 'LASHED OUT' at the offender. Gigi defended herself on Twitter the following day. In the age of social media, where do we draw the line between admiration and flat out invasions of privacy?
