Bill Cosby supporters like Whoopi Goldberg and co-star Joseph C. Phillips recently changed their stances on the sexual assault allegations against him. But Cosby isn’t the only celebrity to be accused of sexual wrongdoings. These are twelve famous people accused of sexual misconduct, some for mild indecent exposure, while others served time in jail for rape. All took obvious hits to their careers and public image.
1. Bill Cosby
The comedian has been accused by numerous women of sexual assault and rape with the earliest allegations taking place in the mid-1960s. In 2004, Bill Cosby was accused of sexual misconduct by 13 different women. The civil lawsuit claimed he drugged and sexually assaulted the women. Cosby settled with undisclosed terms. As of July 2015, two lawsuits against Cosby are pending, including one for defamation of character.
2. Brad Pitt
Pitt was charged with indecent exposure in 1988. The Fight Club actor allegedly mooned drivers on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Brad was fined $450 and given two years of probation. Years ago, many believed that his previous arrest would stifle his ability to adopt children with Angelina Jolie, however we all know money talks.
