12 Celebrities Who Killed Their Spouses

Fame seems like the ticket to a bright and wonderful future but it isn’t always the case. Celebrities are human just like the rest of us. For every celebrity that goes on to found a children’s charity or raise millions of dollars for earthquake victims; there’s a celebrity who goes off the rails. In the worst cases – celebrities can kill and murder and in the absolute worst of those cases; it’s their spouse that pays the ultimate price. Here are 12 celebrities who killed their spouses: O.J. Simpson O.J.’s case isn’t clear cut. He was accused of murdering both his wife and her friend and the evidence seemed overwhelmingly clear cut that he was guilty. Yet, when the case went to trial – his highly paid legal team managed to shed enough doubt on that evidence that O.J. was acquitted and found innocent of the crime. That there’s never been an arrest of any other suspect since the trial suggests that the police think they’d found their man even if the jury didn’t. Earl Hayes With a bright future ahead of him in the world of rap music in 2014 Earl Hayes made the news for all the wrong reasons. Neighbors reported gunfire from Earl’s apartment and when police arrived on the scene both Earl and his wife were dead. The investigation revealed that Earl had murdered his wife before turning his weapon on himself. Oscar Pistorius Pistorius captured the world’s heart and imagination when he became the first Olympian athlete to win a running event with two prosthetic legs. Then in 2013 he caught the world’s eye for a second time. This time it was for shooting his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, through the door of their shared bathroom. He was convicted of murder but legal shenanigans resulted in a sentence of a paltry 7 years and he was even allowed to return home while his appeal was processed. Gig Young Gig Young has a bright career as an actor and won an Academy Award. However, his life was spinning out of control in the 1970s. He was supposed to be Charlie in Charlie’s Angels but when he arrived too drunk to speak – he was fired and replaced by John Forsythe. In 1978 things hit rock bottom when he committed murder-suicide and murdered his wife of just 3 weeks. Sid Vicious Sid Vicious was made world famous for the shock tactics of the punk band the Sex Pistols. Also in 1978 Sid Vicious was implicated in the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. While he originally wasn’t a suspect, he was eventually arrested and confessed immediately to the police. He claimed that he’d never meant to kill her. He never stood trial for his crime as he died of a drug overdose. A note found near his body claimed that Sid had had a death pact with Nancy and it was his decision to move on from this world to be with her in the next. Claudine Longet It’s not just gentlemen who kill their wives as Claudine Longet’s [...].....»»
