Rumours started spreading online claiming Kanye West’s alleged affair with beauty mogul Jeffree Star was the cause of his rift with Kim Kardashian and Kim Kardashian’s parents. Since both guys were residents of Wyoming and had previously lived in the same California community, it was only a matter of time before internet groups began making up theories about them. The singer even responded to the conspiracy notion directly, disproving it. “I must express this one time… Guy height is an issue for me. Just so you know, Kanye is rather short at 5 feet and 8 inches.

Until March of that year, when a now-infamous sex tape was leaked onto the Internet, Kim Kardashian was just a blip on Hollywood’s social radar in early 2007. After that, Ms. Kardashian skyrocketed to stardom on reality television.

The Kardashians are currently among the most recognised families in the country, thanks to her mother’s assistance in managing the family’s brands and careers. Rumour has it that Kris Jenner, Kim’s mother, was behind the tape’s publication in an effort to boost her daughter’s career. Whoever it was, though,

Accused of indecent exposure, Paul Ruebens, better known by his stage as Pee-Wee Herman, was apprehended in July 1991 at an adult movie theatre. Considering Ruebens’s fame as the host of a beloved children’s television programme, the arrest was highly controversial. It became out that this scandal was unique. People rallied around the actor instead of trying to cut him off socially. Although Ruebens denied participating in any illegal activities at the theatre that night, he did not deny being there.

The judge then handed down a fine and ordered him to perform community service. The actor did not face more sex accusations, this time for the inappropriate material of children, until 2004.

7 The Hidden Son of Arnold

The Affair with the Maid, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Interview with Maria Shriver, and Arnold’s New Autobiography

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, didn’t care that he and Maria Shriver had been married for just over ten years. A son was born to Mr. Terminator and his family housekeeper, who he continued to see throughout his marriage and tenure in power. During his time in office, not even his wife knew about this. The former governor’s numerous transgressions were detailed in a vicious front-page article that the Los Angeles Times published shortly after he left office.

The fact that Schwarzenegger did not know who the child’s father was is astonishing. He started providing for the child financially as soon as he found out he was the father. Arnold and Shriver’s divorce was caused by the affair and the article. Nevertheless, the public’s perception of the actor and bodybuilder remains unchanged despite the controversy.

6 The Emperor’s Club and Eliot Spitzer

2008: Spitzer resigns as governor

The New York Times was responsible for the demise of former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, continuing with our theme of the press exposing illegal gubernatorial activities. The 2008 New York Times piece described Spitzer’s encounters with a prostitute from the “Emperor’s VIP Club,” a posh brothel. The professional and financial costs of these forays were high, coming in about $1,000 per hour.

According to the information obtained through a federal wiretap, he spent a total of fifteen grand at this “club” during the course of six months. On March 17, 2008, Spitzer resigned as governor of New York State in order to evade impeachment. The Emperor’s Club “bust” had far-reaching consequences.

5 Jackie Kennedy and John F. Kennedy

Happy Birthday/Thanks For The Memories—Marilyn Monroe Sings It for President John F. Kennedy in 1962

The sex scandal involving Marilyn Monroe and former US president John F. Kennedy is one of the most infamous in American history. The American people were ravenous for rumours around the Hollywood bombshell and the youthful, good-looking president. A televised birthday party for JFK was the spark that set the rumours in motion. Marilyn emerged from the dressing room in a white fur cloak, which she swiftly shed to expose a gown adorned with sparkling jewels. It was a scandalously exposing gown back then.

She nearly stripped on stage before singing a sensual rendition of “Happy Birthday” that was addressed to Mr. Kennedy (“Happy birthday, Mr. President…”). American audiences were captivated from that point on. Together, this photo and the allegations it contained provided what many see as irrefutable proof of the affair. Some think it’s impossible for the two to have an affair. Having them at the same place was rarely recorded. The assertion that the affair was fictional is challenged by others. Rumour has it that Monroe tried to bring up the affair with Jackie Kennedy, the president’s wife.

It is known that Jackie was aware of JFK’s extramarital affairs, but the rumours about her husband’s affair with Monroe were the most hurtful to her. If the relationship turned out to be true, her family would have been destroyed due to her fame.

4 The Bouncing Check of Jerry Springer

Jerry Springer had a political career—along with some dubious hobbies—but he is most renowned for his trash TV character. Jerry had an affair with a sex worker in 1974 while serving on the Cincinnati City Council. *the audience boos* Jerry surprisingly resigned following a VICE investigation and a press release that made reference to an unidentified “Cincinnati politico.” In essence, he came out to the world.

Jerry offered to provide a court testimony in Kentucky, asserting his guilt about having sexual relations with two women at different times and paying for their services with his own money. Adding salt to wounds, rumours have been circulating that one of the cheques bounced. All of Jerry’s assertions are false. A bounced cheque? Really? Remain with the sex workers, please. Jerry handled the aftermath discreetly, staying out of politics. However, in a surprising turn of events, he ran to be reinstated to his council seat.

That wasn’t all Jerry did. He unsuccessfully sought and won the office of mayor in 1975, the same year he was re-elected to the city council. He was elected governor of Ohio in 1982. Maybe what made him the perfect talk show presenter was the way he managed his scandal and then moved and grooved in the political arena once it happened. Following his 1991 hosting debut, Jerry continued to enjoy great success from 1991 to 2018.

3 Tiger Woods and a Loads of Women

I had affairs, I cheated, and you may blame me, says Tiger Woods.

Young golf prodigy It seems like Tiger Woods had it all. Exceptionally gifted, with a wildly successful career, numerous high-profile endorsements and brand alliances, a supportive family life, and more besides… However, the rising star felt it fell short. His good fortune crumbled on November 27, 2009. Are you aware of what you’ve got?

Woods took pain medicine on this day, and then he crashed his Escalade outside his house. As a result of this catastrophe, the media began to investigate possible scandals. Look closely; the professional athlete’s purported mistress was leaking his text messages and voicemails very soon. But she wasn’t the only one who came out to accuse her of having an affair. Waitresses, nightclub employees, models, and adult film actresses were among the women who came forward.

Despite his best efforts to handle the problem privately, the once-revered golfer issued a series of statements in which he admitted his wrongdoing and offered an apology. When Woods’ personal and professional life began to fall apart, he retreated from the spotlight and sought help from therapists. He also lost sponsorships and brand deals. Unfortunately, after a while of that, the professional and his wife announced their divorce in 2010. Even though Woods got back on the golf course that year, the injuries he sustained in the accident prevented him from ever reaching the heights he had in his early career.

2 A 2NXIVM cult or a society of self-helpers?

The NXIVM Missing Women: Urban Legends vs. Facts

The original intention behind the 1998 founding of NXIVM was to create a community of young, affluent professionals who could help each other find fulfilment and self-improvement. Renowned entrepreneurs, politicians’ children, and others attracted to the community’s exclusive “Executive Success Programmes” classes. By instituting non-disclosure agreements, NXIVM maintained the highest level of confidentiality regarding the subject matter covered in its seminars and courses of study.

The “Dominus Obsequious Sororium” alleged hidden subsect did not come to light until 2017. There were no males in this inner circle. Under the pretence of being a part of a mentoring programme, they were secretly branded physically. The idea behind the fictitious mentoring programme was that more seasoned women would step in and guide the more junior and committed female participants. The truth is that this was untrue. Not only was the induction symbol etched into the flesh of these women, but it also bore the initials of the founder. When the women were branded, they had no idea about this.

The ladies of the group were expected to be ready to cater to founder Keith Raniere’s every whim. There have been allegations of sexual assault, weight requirements, and members waiting naked for the group’s founder. The group used the sexually explicit movies they had them record as a kind of blackmail. After his activities were revealed, Keith Raniere was taken into custody on accusations of sex trafficking and conspiracy. For his role in plotting to use forced labour, he was also apprehended. For his crimes against women, he received a 120-year prison sentence. In the time after, NXIVM became known as one of the most infamous cults in the United States.

1 Clinton and Lewinsky involved

Monica Lewinsky’s TED Talk: The Cost of Shame

Imagine a list of sex scandals in American history that omits the most well-known one. What would it be like? Because it is unprecedented for the Internet to play such a significant part in a political crisis, this one stands out. News spread more slowly, and public opinion was less vocal, than it is now. However, it all changed when the Internet came along.

While interning for President Clinton, Monica Lewinsky was a young woman. She was clearly hanging out with the previous president a lot throughout this period. Consequently, she was sent to work for the Pentagon. Unfortunately, Lewinsky’s coworker covertly recorded their chats when she spoke up about her affair (such a horrible confidante). They handed the recordings over to a detective who was already investigating allegations of president-level harassment. Media went into a frenzy after these videos.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” This famous statement was Clinton’s denial of having an affair with Lewinsky after the news of her affair broke. He was reluctant to accept guilt until he was impeached and forced to swear under oath. Public opinion turned strongly against Monica in the years that followed. Since then, she has taken a stand against harassment and cyberbullying.
