People tend to snicker about sex addiction, but it can destroy relationships, break up families and derail careers. You just have to look at Hollywood to see prime examples of this. Some so-called sex addicts may just be making excuses for being unfaithful, but others seem to have a legitimate compulsion. It’s more akin to the gambling rush than the chemical dependency of alcohol or drugs. Often its a symptom of deeper issues that require therapy and rehab to “cure” or manage. Here are 10 famous sex addicts whose overactive libidos have gotten them into big trouble.
