It surprises us when many celebrities seek for five-finger discounts on items they could easily afford. With an embarrassment of riches locked in their deepest safe vaults, celebrities have the luxury of spending their money extravagantly. When celebrities act like kleptomaniacs, it guides us to believe that they are doing it just to experience an adrenaline rush. When people are in power, they also tend to believe that they are above the law. Well, although that form of narcissism is quickly handled well by law enforcers most of the time, celebrities often tend to escape scot-free without justified punishment which, in turn, encourages other celebrities to follow suit. Have a look at 8 celebrities who have been caught shoplifting.
1. Megan Fox
To be fair to Megan Fox, she was caught shoplifting before being famous. Reliable sources tell us that she is banned from shopping at a Wal-Mart in Florida for stealing lip-gloss as a teen. Her act was caught on tape and the item stolen was a $7 tube of lip-gloss. Although she constantly denied stealing at first, she succumbed to pressure and confessed after being threatened by the security who said they wouldn’t hesitate to call the cops. Over the years, Megan has admitted to purloining many small items during her rebellious teenage years. The claim has been even backed by one of Fox’s childhood friends.
