Managing stars isn't easy, so the people who are good at it take a hefty 10 percent for all their hard work. As we know, with the good comes the bad, and some managers have become rather infamous in their role as star-makers. The airing of the hit TV film Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story, while putting the iconic trio back in the spotlight, has placed an unflattering light on their former manager Pebbles, who is calling for VH1 to issue retractions on their story. If you think Pebs was an unscrupulous impresario, take a look at these other music managers who've been busted for bad deeds or had their character called into question.
