Red Eye Chicago



It’s been the summer of scandal in Hollywood thanks to prison controvers­ies involving the likes of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.

However, neither socialite’s run-in with the law was infamous enough to crack the top 10 of Entertainm­ent Weekly’s “25 biggest scandals of the past 25 years.” Michael Jackson’s baby- dangling stunt checked in at No. 5, the controvers­y surroundin­g Hugh Grant soliciting prostitute Divine Brown ranked No. 4, and singer Sinead O’Connor ripping up the Pope’s photo on “Saturday Night Live” placed third.

The top two incidents in the celebrity hall of shame: Mel Gibson getting drunk and going on an antiSemiti­c rant after he was arrested, and—drumroll, please—Justin Timberlake pulling away Janet Jackson’s top to reveal the singer’s nipple shield at the 2004 Super Bowl.
