Many people love following the celebrity lifestyle from the sidelines, and luckily for us, itâ€™s easier than ever to check out what your favorite celeb is up to. With Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts being updated constantly, itâ€™s hard not to be bombarded by the constant stream of Hollywood updates.
However, there is a dark side to Hollywood â€“ many people succumb to the mounting pressure of staying relevant, and choose to take time away from the spotlight. What happens when a celeb doesnâ€™t quite get out of the spotlight before having a personal crisis? Check out the list below for a few of the most memorable celeb meltdowns ever.
1. Britney Spears
Pop star Britney Spearsâ€™ meltdown was a long time coming â€” people started noticing the early warning signs in 2004, when she married a long time friend in a Las Vegas ceremony, only to annul the marriage 55 hours later.
The incidents quietly piled up over the next four years â€” ranging from driving with her son in her lap to marrying and quickly divorcing a backup dancer. Then, in November 2006, the infamous head shaving incident occurred, and she was placed under her fatherâ€™s care. Fortunately, Spears has managed to pick herself back up, and has thrived because of her struggles.
