10 Disney Stars Gone Bad
The singing megastar, Britney Spears, first found exposure as a cast member on The All New Mickey Mouse Club – before she discovered fame, tattoos, multiple marriages, shaved heads, wardrobe malfunctions.
Lindsay Lohan made her movie debut in Disney’s The Parent Trap at the age of 11, but at some point over the following years she became everyone’s favourite train wreck, eventually undergoing a stint in rehab for drink and drugs.
One of Britney’s fellow Mickey Mouse Club members, Christina Aguilera shed her sweet and innocent image in spectacular fashion when she donned racy outfits and took a communal shower in the promo for her 2002 single Dirrty.
Shia LaBeouf first made his mark in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens – a far cry from his chequered later years when he was arrested in November 2007 for misdemeanour criminal trespass after refusing to leave a chemist’s in Chicago. In 2008, an arrest warrant was issued when he failed to turn up to a court summons for unlawful smoking California.
Cody Linley starred alongside Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana, but his scheduled appearance in Disney Channel movie Starstruck was axed a week prior to filming when pictures of him drunkenly partying at a nightclub emerged.
Wily Justin Timberlake managed to shake off his squeaky clean image as a boyband singer and former Mickey Mouse Club star by bedding a string of beautiful women – earning himself the flattering nickname Trouser Snake in the process.
Miley Cyrus’s image as the star of Hannah Montana was so family-friendly, it was inevitably going to take a tumble at some point. So when the teenager discovered boys – and posed topless save for a white sheet on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine at the age of 15 – self-appointed moral guardians were predictably outraged.
High School Musical starlet Vanessa Hudgens was swiftly becoming Hollywood’s hottest young golden girl when naked photos of her leaked online. She warned fellow teenage girls of the dangers of posing for saucy pics for a boyfriend… then took on a role as a stripper in the movie Sucker Punch.
Jamie Lynn Spears
Britney’s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears is no stranger to controversy herself – she fell pregnant at the age of 16, sparking outrage that she was two years below California’s age of consent… even though she is not from the state and was not living there at the time. She gave birth to her daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge, in June 2008.
Fairuza Balk played Dorothy in Disney’s 1985 movie Return to Oz – but since the film, she has developed an interest in witchcraft and even owned a Wicca supplies company called Panpipes.
