Celebrities don’t just get involved in legal issues; they also play them on TV. This makes it more interesting when they get involved in real-life actual legal cases, because then it’s like all our stories have come to life, or like when the popular girl’s diary got passed around the boy’s locker room. Sometimes the spectacle becomes so overblown, it's even acknowledged with press coverage touting it to be akin to some major sports event or real-life political battle, instead of a bunch of sad millionaires getting a divorce live on TV. 

Here are some cases of the best, worst, or more interesting celebrity legal cases — and we bet you can guess in most cases who won just by seeing whose name you recognize (more).

Celebrities are just like you and me, but when they get into legal battles we get to watch it for fun! And not even on Judge Judy.
