15 Creepy Celebs You Wouldn’t Let Babysit Your Kids

15. R. Kelly

R. Kelly was in (ahem) hot water after a video surfaced which allegedly showed the singer performing lewd acts with an underage girl, including urinating on her. Police searched his home and found a digital camera wrapped in a towel which contained images of the same girl from the video, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

14. Vincent Margera

Vincent “Don Vito” Margera rose to prominence for being the slow-but-lovable uncle of Bam Margera on MTV’s Viva La Bam. His persona can be summed up by the fact that the show would often have to give him subtitles, even though he speaks English.

13. Tim Allen

Most of us know him as the grunting every-man from Home Improvement’s “Tool Time,” but before he was clumsily entertaining millions, he nearly served a life sentence for trafficking in cocaine.

12. Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski is a movie director. Some of his notable films include Chinatown, Macbeth, The Ninth Gate, and The Pianist. In 1969, his second wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered by members of the Charles Manson family. A tragedy like that would mess with a lot of people, but it’s no excuse for what he was arrested for doing eight years later.

11. Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is a lock for any “Don’t leave your kids with this person” list. Despite that, many parents did leave their kids alone with Michael Jackson. According to the courts of law, Michael Jackson is innocent. According to the court of public opinion, he’s a total creep who did all sorts of terrible things, which many people are happy to overlook because he gave us Thriller.

10. Paul Reubens

If the name of his most popular character, Pee Wee Herman, isn’t enough to raise any red flags about Paul Reubens‘ child-care credentials, perhaps the fact that he was arrested for pleasuring himself at a theatre will. To his credit, he was at an adult cinema, so at least he wasn’t watching one of his own children’s movies when he was busted.

9. Woody Allen

You’ll start to notice a trend on this list where a lot of the people that have been involved in questionable situations also happen to be absolute geniuses at their craft, whether that’s music, sports, or in this case – film.

8. Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe was a big teen heartthrob in the ’80s and won his way back into America’s heart with roles in hits like The West Wing and Parks and Recreation, but near the end of the decade he was blazing all the wrong trails when he had one of the first commercially sold celebrity sex tapes in 1988.

7. Dr. Dre

Like Jay-Z, Dr. Dre also has 99 problems. The difference is that all of Dr. Dre’s problems actually do revolve around women.

6. Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry is one of the pioneers of rock and roll music, but the good stuff ends right about there.

5. Victor Salva

Victor Salva is the final movie director on this list. Salva was obsessed with horror movies growing up. When he was eighteen-years-old, he came out to his family and they disowned him.

4. Rick James

Funk singer Rick James was messing with a lot more than just couches. This notorious party animal was very, very addicted to drugs in a huge way. He was spending hundreds, if not thousands, a night on getting high. In 1991, he and his then-girlfriend held a young woman hostage in their home.

3. Lou Pearlman

Lou Pearlman, also known as “Big Poppa,” was a record producer and a manager for a ton of Boy Bands from the 1990s. His acts included NSYNC, The Backstreet Boys, LFO, O-Town, Take 5, and a handful of others.

2. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is the quintessential party girl of the 2000s and probably not the first person you’d want to be looking after your kids, even in a pinch. She doesn’t have any particularly creepy stuff floating around her like some of the people on the this list, but trouble just seems to follow her nonetheless.

1. Bill Cosby

This former host of “Kids Say the Darndest Things” was trying to convince people that the countless women coming forward to accuse him of drugging and raping them also were saying the darndest things, but as more and more women started coming out of the woodwork, things were looking worse and worse for the formerly beloved TV dad.
