4Amanda Bynes

One of the most popular names in the early 2000s, Amanda Bynes, had a rather nasty fall from fame over the last few years. She did not just suffer from addiction issues but was also arrested for driving under the influence more than once. The actor was also captured on video while she shoplifted a $200 hat in 2014.

Reports emerged that Amanda picked up the designer hat from New York’s famous store Barney’s, and was caught by security as she tried to leave the store without paying. Amanda said she wanted to buy the hat, but did not have the purse with her. She further added that she was going to get her purse from her car but was confronted by a fan, who wanted to take pictures of her and got confused.

5Winona Ryder

One of the most famous shoplifting incidents in Hollywood is still Winona Ryder’s. The Stranger Things actor, who was a ‘90s heartthrob, had a somewhat wavering presence in Hollywood in the past decade. In 2001, Winona was arrested for stealing $5,500 worth of clothes from a famous New York store Saks. During her trial, she was also accused of using drugs without prescriptions and was charged with grand theft and vandalism.

Winona was sentenced to three years of probation, 480 hours of community service, and had to pay $3,700 in fine. The actor also had to pay a $6,355 compensation to Saks. She was further ordered by the court to attend counseling. Winona later confirmed that she was clinically depressed at the time and was under the influence of drugs.



In 2015, pop sensation Kesha had allegedly stolen a dinosaur - that’s right. Kesha and her assistant were at the LA Natural History Museum for a wedding and went to their gift shop. There they picked up a 3-foot long T-Rex statue and left the store with it.

A source revealed to The Sun that when security stopped Kesha and asked about the dinosaur, the pop star apologized and handed over the dinosaur to him. But the T-Rex was covered in glitter and thus obviously became un-sellable.

7Courtney Love

Rockstar and Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love was accused of stealing $113,700 worth of designer jewellery including, white gold bracelets, diamond and white gold chains. She was accused by the jewelry company Jacob and Co-owners of the company claimed that they lent Courtney all that jewellery for an event.

In their lawsuit, the company claimed that she has returned only a diamond bracelet but not the rest. While Courtney claimed that she had lost the other pieces of jewellery, Jacob and Co insists that they are still with Courtney.
