Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey - Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey, star of Jodeci, co-wrote "No One Else" with his bandmate Mr. Dalvin. But some say his role on the album was much deeper than that, as he and Mary were allegedly engaged in a physically abusive, drug-fueled, relationship at the time. As a result, many attribute the pain and heartbreak that permeates the album to K-Ci. He and his brother, JoJo, left Jodeci a few years after My Life, releasing a handful of albums and touring extensively as a duo. But the pair's substance abuse?highlighted (or lowlighted) by Youtube videos of each of them collapsing onstage?halted their careers. K-Ci did manage to release a solo album, My Book, in 2006, and he and JoJo teamed up for the Japan-only release Love two years later.   (Photo: Facebook/K-Ci-Jojo)

Charlie Sheen - The actor is not shy when it comes to saying outlandish things, but found himself apologizing after a voice mail he left ex-wife Denise Richards, in which he calls her a "c**t" and a "f*****g n****r," leaked. "I deeply apologize...especially to Tony Todd, an African-American, who was the best man at my first two weddings," said Sheen in a statement. Genuine apology or tokenism?  (Photo: Theo Wargo/Getty Images)
