2. Kanye West

Kim Kardashian’s beau had a near death experience back in 2002. Kanye West was involved in a serious car accident after leaving the recording studio at 3 A.M. The rapper’s accident was devastating. He had to have reconstructive surgery for his face and his jaw was wired shut for weeks (hmm, perhaps not such a bad thing!). Kanye’s first major hit, Through the Wire, stemmed from his accident, so at least something positive came out of it.
