Celebrities aren't always as nice in person as you'd like them to be.  And some of them are straight-up jerks.....

1.  Eric Clapton:  During a concert in 1976, Clapton reportedly went on an anti-immigration tirade, using racist language and repeatedly shouting, "Keep Britain White!"

 

2.  Charles Dickens:  After his wife Catherine bore him 10 children, he divorced her for gaining weight.  And in the media, he called her a "donkey" and an "unloving and unloved mother."

 

3.  Johnny Cash:  One time when his truck overheated and caught fire, he just left it to go fishing, and didn't even call for help.  It burned a square mile of forest and killed off 49 California condors, which was HALF THE SPECIES at the time.  He was fined $82,000.

 

4.  Tim Allen:  In the late '70s, Tim was caught at an airport with a little bit of cocaine.  And when I say "a little bit", I mean FOURTEEN FRIGGIN' POUNDS. He could have been looking at life, but he RATTED on all the dealers he knew, and was free in 28 months.

 

5.  Chuck Berry:  In 1990, Chuck was sued by dozens of women because he'd allegedly installed a camera in the women's restroom of a restaurant he owned in Missouri.  He ended up settling with 59 women for about $1.2 million, plus legal fees.
