Mister Cee - Of the three things that keep stars in the spotlight — fame, fashion and sex — it's only the last one that will guarantee headlines, every time. Our list of celebrity sex scandals kicks off with the recent arrest of Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee, who was allegedly caught trying to pick up an undercover sex worker in Brooklyn this past weekend. There are conflicting reports of whether the sex worker was male, female or transgender. This is allegedly the third time the legendary DJ, who was an early mentor to Notorious B.I.G., was caught with his pants down in the company of a prostitute. (Photo: Johnny Nunez/WireImage)

R. Kelly - The R&B star may believe age ain't nothin' but a number, but the federal court system sees it a bit differently. Prosecutors spent six years trying to convict Kelly on child pornography charges, stemmimg from a 27-minute sex tape he allegedly made with an underage female, but a jury acquitted him in 2008. "Thank you Jesus," said the Chicago native upon hearing the verdict. (Photo: Ben Gabbe/Getty Images)

Rick James - In 1991, 24-year-old Frances Alley claimed that an intoxicated James ordered her to strip naked, tied her to a chair and burned her with a hot pipe, after which she was hit in the face with a handgun and forced to perform sexual acts on James’s girlfriend. James was put on trial for charges that included false imprisonment, torture, forcible oral copulation and aggravated mayhem. He spent three years in jail over the incident, and another similar one in which he and the same girlfriend held a woman prisoner in their hotel room for 20 hours. "Superfreak," indeed. (Photo: Getty Images)

Eddie Murphy - No good deed goes unpunished for Eddie Murphy. The actor and comedian was pulled over by police in the wee hours of the morning in 1997 for keeping company with a transgender sex worker. Murphy claims he was simply giving the "woman" a ride, later saying the incident was an "act of kindness that got turned into a f-----g horror show." While the A-lister wasn't charged with any illegal activity, the embarrassing incident made him vow, "I'm never giving anyone a lift again." (Photo: Christopher Polk/Getty Images)

John Travolta - The sex scandals surrounding the Pulp Fiction star have been mushrooming over the past few years. From salacious bath house visits to massages with benefits to allegations of sexual assault against a cruise ship worker, it seems like there are a lot of people out to prove that the married father-of-two is living a double life. So far, though, Travolta denies all allegations. (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

Tiger Woods - It all started with a midnight car crash during Thanksgiving, 2009: Tiger Woods went from one of the most clean-cut, successful and high-earning athletes in the world to tabloid freak show and sex addict. In the following weeks, a string of women stepped forward to admit they had relations with Tiger, even while he was married to Swedish model Elin Nordegren.   (Photo: Ryan Pierse/Getty Images)

Tevin Campbell - What would the readers of Teen Beat think of this? '90s dreamboat Campbell revealed his bad boy side when he was caught soliciting oral sex from an undercover male cop.

Mike Tyson - The heavyweight champ's sex scandals range from amusing (he once referred to himself as a "prostitute hunter") to tragic (abuse and infidelities against his ex-wife Robin Givens), but it's undisputed that the former boxer has spent as much time battling the media as he had his opponents in the ring. According to one former flame, Tyson has a library of celebrity sex tapes.(Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)

"Sugah Daddy" - For this swaggalicious cut where D'Angelo plays rich suitor to a materialistic lady, the sound of big band jazz is stripped down to a rhythmic layering that is undeniably infectious. (Photo: C.M. Wiggins/WENN.com)

D'Angelo - The sexy R&B crooner got more than he bargained for in 2008 when he offered a woman $40 for oral sex. Turns out the lady was a cop. The "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" singer denies the allegations of solicitation. Considering he's the last person we'd expect to have to pay for female attention, we're tempted to believe him.   (Photo: C.M. Wiggins/WENN.com)
