People are really greedy when it comes to having fame and they would do anything to get it, even if it means bringing others down or exploiting them to get it. Although, most of them never really last, they make it to the headlines and are talked about for a while before they go back into exile. Many of them don’t care if they are being famous for the wrong reasons or if they have a bad image. They just want fame, however it may come.
This is a short list of celebrities who literally used others or assaulted/exploited other celebrities to get to the headlines.
