In the 80s, Cher stopped in a local bagel shop for a coffee and left with an aspiring actor’s seven digits (no area codes to phone numbers back then). Rob “Bagel Boy” Camilletti was just working a normal day in May 1986, but little did he know how much his life would change.

7. The Fiasco with Paris Hilton’s Storage Unit

In 2007, Paris Hilton’s 6000 square foot rental units were auctioned off due to a lack of payment. Inside the storage unit was a less-than-flattering recording of Hilton saying some very inappropriate racial epithets.

In the late 80s, before Marky Mark had a Funky Bunch, a teenage Mark Wahlberg found himself in constant trouble for what some would view as race-related crimes. When Wahlberg was about 15 years old, he was involved in a few racial hate crimes that he wishes to be pardoned.

Many hip-hop fans from the 90s remember Tupac’s meteoric rise to fame. Not many of those fans will remember some of Shakur’s more critical statements toward music mogul Quincy Jones and how he makes “messed up kids.” Seventeen-year-old Rashida Jones didn’t take kindly to that remark and wrote a fiery letter response to the hip-hop star’s earlier statements.

11. Bobby Womack Tried to Marry Sam Cooke’s Widow

A final commenter shared, “Idk if it’s too old for you guys, but: soul singer Bobby Womack tried to marry Sam Cooke’s widow less than a month after he was shot. Then, after marrying her, had an affair with her underage daughter. His wife shot at him for that. His stepdaughter/affair partner went on to marry Bobby Womack’s brother, aka her step-uncle.”
