Let’s take a look at some of the year’s craziest celebrity moments

The toxic work environment scandal on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” 

Earlier this year Ellen DeGeneres kept her silence as former guests and employees spoke out against the host’s alleged cold behavior on and off set.  A former bodyguard, Thomas Majercak also confirmed DeGeneres’ not-so-nice behavior to staffers. He revealed to Fox News that DeGeneres was “cold” and “sly” during her 2014 Oscars hosting gig. However, this was just the tip of the iceberg. Soon after,  Buzzfeed News published an expose where one current and 10 former employees at the show spoke out about their experiences. They alleged that top producers were guilty of racism, sexual misconduct, and the toxic workplace environment.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big “Megxit”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made one of the biggest announcements that rattled Hollywood and beyond, at the beginning of 2020; their decision to depart as senior members of the royal family.

The couple announced their plan to “step back” and instead split their time working for the United Kingdom and North America, saying that this decision was arrived at “after many months of reflection and internal discussions.”

Britney Spears’ conservatorship battle

Britney Spears experienced a fair amount of drama this year, in regard to the conservatorship she’s been under for years.

The “Toxic” singer has been under a conservatorship for over a decade. This means that her daily life and finances are overseen by a guardian of sorts, which in this case was her father Jamie for most of the time, since its establishment.

This summer, reports suggested that Spears is “strongly opposed” to the idea of her father being her sole conservator. Following reports stated that Spears has requested that a trusted company take over these duties.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli sent to prison

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli also had a dramatic year. They were sentenced to prison for their roles in the nationwide college admissions scandal.

In August, the “Fuller House” alum was sentenced to two months in prison after she and Giannulli pleaded guilty to charges stemming from $500,000 payments made to the scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer. The payments were made to get their daughters,  Isabella Giannulli and Olivia Jade recruited to the University of Southern California’s crew team.
