Today we bring to you Celebs who got Teenagers pregnant.

Even though MTV’s hit show Teen Mom has effectively made celebrities out of everyday kids who played it fast and loose with birth control, there are plenty of already famous folk who’ve found themselves in the same situation. A wide array of musicians, actors, and athletes have landed young women — who could not yet vote, legally drink alcohol, or in some cases even drive a car — inside of the delivery room.

But it’s not all as bad as it sounds.

Some of these were legitimate high school sweetheart situations that actually led to long-lasting, loving marriages. Of course, some of them were just dudes who couldn’t wait for an arguably more appropriate age, or in some cases, the boundary of the law. Whatever the case may be, these are the celebs who had teenage baby mamas, as well as all of the possible drama that comes along with teen pregnancies.

Jerry Lee Lewis

With a nickname like “The Killer,” rock pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis was bound to make some waves in his career. And while he certainly did that with wild performances, including the time he set his piano ablazeafter becoming incensed at the idea of having to open for Chuck Berry, the biggest scandal of his career happened far from the ivories.

During his 1958 European tour, the British press excoriated Lewis after discovering he’d married his 13-year-old third cousin, Myra Gale Brown, the year before (Lewis was 22 at the time of their marriage). According to Rolling Stone, Lewis attempted to cover up the marriage by telling people Brown was his other cousin, J.W. Brown’s daughter. He also allegedly lied about Brown’s age, but when the truth came out, he became “cocksure and defiant to the point of parading Brown onstage.”

The ensuing media frenzy effectively sapped Lewis’ career, and he spent the next decade descending into drug and alcohol addiction while attempting to rebuild his career by playing at small, local gigs. Meanwhile, Brown was living a life of quiet desperation.

Speaking with The Gwinnett Daily Post, Brown, who has since remarried and now goes by Myra Lewis Williams, described her 13-year marriage to Lewis as “a trial by fire,” “devastating,” and “chaos all the time.” Williams had her first child, a son named Steve Allen, when she was just 14, then a daughter, Phoebe, at 17. Asked what advice she would give to herself looking back, Williams said, “I would tell my young self that life is not always going to be like this. Get through it and it’s going to be better because it was as if I was going to be there forever and it’s never going to change.” Yeesh.

John Agar

Right off the bat, you may be thinking, “Who?” So let’s get this out of the way. John Agar was an Army vet who became a moderately successful actor after he wed Shirley Temple in 1945. Though they were only married for four years, they did have a child together when Temple was 19. To be exact, Temple was three months shy her 20th birthday when her daughter Linda was born, so this entry may come with a bit of an asterisk, since Temple was about a minute away from escaping her teens when she became a mom for the first time.

Anyway, according to The Telegraph, Temple and Agar’s marriage didn’t last long after the arrival of their little bundle of joy — less than two years — due to Agar’s apparent disillusionment with his half-baked film career that never got out from under Temple’s shadow. He would go on to become a B-movie regular, logging roles in titles like Attack of the Puppet People and Women of the Prehistoric Planet. As a result, Agar drowned his sorrows in alcohol, once admitting, “Yes, I drank too much, and I drank at the wrong time.”

Agar died at the age of 81 in 2002. According to his obituary in The Washington Post, he’d been remarried since 1951 to model Loretta Algar, with whom he fathered two sons. Sadly, The Post also reported that Agar was “estranged from Temple and his daughter from that marriage” at the time of his death.

Luc Besson

Film director Luc Besson is perhaps best known for the zany ’90s sci-fi romp, The Fifth Element. But he also happens to be a guy who impregnated a 16-year-old when he was in his early 30s. Now, before your ick-meter goes haywire, keep in mind that both Besson and his teenage baby mama, Maïwenn Le Besco, are from France, where the age of consent has only recently, as of this writing, been changed to 15-years-old

Previously — at the time of Besson and Le Besco’s relationship — there was no set age, so on second thought, yeah, go ahead and let that ick-meter freak out. Le Besco, who has since dropped her surname and become a successful film director in her own right — even tackling the subject of pedophilia in her critically-acclaimed film Polisse — speaks only sparingly about her children in public. She also has a son, Diego, with property developer, Jean-Yves Le Fur, according to Eye For Film.

In a 2018 interview with Under The Radar, Maïwenn revealed that she and Besson did pursue a relationship together in Los Angeles, although they ultimately separated after Besson allegedly “left her for [Milla] Jovovich during the filming of The Fifth Element,” according to Anthem Magazine.

As far as we can tell, Besson has never addressed the controversy over his relationship with Maïwenn, but he seems to have maintained a good relationship with their daughter, Shanna, as he specifically thanked her for helping him with his 2014 Reddit AMA. So, that’s something, right?

Ricky Hendrick

Though she wasn’t a household name until her ill-fated appearances on the reality series The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in 2011 and 2012, Emily Maynard had a brief brush with the celebrity life nearly a decade earlier when she got engaged to the late NASCAR driver, Ricky Hendrick.

As detailed in her book, I Said Yes: My Story of Heartbreak, Redemption, and True Love, Maynard met Hendrick when she was in high school, and she was instantly smitten. Only it would be a few years — during her senior year actually — until they linked up romantically.

The following year, Hendrick tragically diedalong with nine other passengers in a plane crash.

Maynard, who was 19 years old at the time, discovered just days after the crash that she was pregnant with her late fiancé’s child. Their daughter, Josephine Riddick Hendrick, who was named after her father, Joseph Riddick Hendrick IV, was born on June 29, 2005, according to Scene Daily. Naturally, she goes by “Ricki.”

Maynard has since remarried a “hometown sweetheart,” Tyler Johnson (the two both hail from Charlotte, North Carolina), but she still posts remembrances of her first love on Instagram (above) every year on the anniversary of his death. As of December 2017, Maynard and Johnson have three children together.  

LeBron James

NBA megastar LeBron James got his high school girlfriend, now wife, Savannah Brinson pregnant during her senior year. He had already graduated and gone on to his rookie year playing professional basketball, but Brinson was still left feeling panicked about the situation, she says, according to a 2010 interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

I was thinking, ‘What am I going to tell my parents? What’s going to happen to his career?'” Brinson told the mag, but James was reassuring. “It’s not going to slow me down, and it’s not going to slow you down,” he told her, adding, “We’re going to keep doing what we have to do.”

For James, that meant stepping up and being the man that his own father, who he never knew, was not. According to an interview with Cleveland.com, James knew long before he became a father himself that he didn’t want to go down that same path. “I wanted to be a part of the statistics that breaks the mode of fathers running out on their kids. … to have a family and be there for them and be there on a day-to-day basis is important,” he said.

True to his word, James stuck by Brinson, and married her in 2013. As of this writing, they now have two sons, LeBron Jr., 13, Bryce Maximus, 10, and a daughter, Zhuri, 3, not to mention a family net worth of $275 million. Not too shabby.

Lil Wayne

Rapper Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., fathered his first daughter, Reginae, with Toya Wright. Wright was just 14-years-old at the time, and while Wayne was only 16-years-old himself, he was already an established public figure as both a solo rapper, and behind-the-scenes at Cash Money Records, where he was signed at the time, and where he also worked developing up-and-coming talent.  

But Wayne’s fame didn’t ease the burden of Wright’s teen pregnancy. In an interview with Vibe, Wright said she’s long suffered under the label of “Wayne’s baby mama,” regardless of how much she’s done on her own to make a name for herself independent of superstar baby daddy.   

Wayne and Wright eventually married in 2004, six years after Reginae was born, but they quickly divorced in 2006. According to excerpts from Wright’s 2016 book, In My Own Words … My Real Reality (via People), Wayne still pined for Wright long after their separation. “I want [you] to know that no matter what woman or relationship I involve myself with, I look for [you] or a piece of [you] inside that woman,” Wayne allegedly texted Wright.

Wayne and Wright have not reconciled, though they remain amicable. Wayne and his daughter Reginae have always maintained a healthy relationship as well. As of this writing, Wayne also has three sons (and a possible fourth) all with different baby mamas.

Charlie Sheen

Of all the male celebrities on this list, perhaps actor and known lothario Charlie Sheen is the least surprising. His relationships with actresses Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller produced four of his more well-known children; Daughters Sam, 14, and Lola Rose, 12, to Richards, and twin sons Max and Bob, 9, to Mueller.

But way back in 1985, Sheen’s then high school girlfriend, Paula Speert, gave birth to his first daughter, Cassandra Estevez (Charlie Sheen was still Carlos Estevez back then), according to E News Daily. Speert was reportedly 19-years-old when she became pregnant.

Fast-forward 28 years and Estevez herself became a mother in 2013, making Sheen — that’s right — a grandfather! Speaking with TMZ about his next-level generational status, Sheen said, “It’s impossibly a most wondrous day. My bucket list is a thimble!” He also told David Letterman (via The Daily Mail) that he was looking forward to caring for his new granddaughter Luna, in part, because “you can leave the kid!”

Oh Charlie, never change. (Seriously though, please do change, for the love of God, there are so many children involved.)

Rod Stewart

Like Charlie Sheen, ’70s rock legend Rod Stewart had a reputation for being quite the ladies man. So, it’s not surprising that he also became a dad in his late teens. According to The Daily Mail, Stewart got his girlfriend of one year, Susannah Boffey, pregnant with their daughter, Sarah Streeter, when they were both 18-years-old in 1963. Stewart, who had yet to find success in his singing career, wanted to give the child up for adoption. Boffey initially refused, and tried to raise baby Sarah on her own, but found it too difficult, and after several months, eventually agreed to the suggestion.

After many years, and several awkward encounters during the ’80s when her true identity was discovered, Streeter and Stewart started piecing their relationship back together around 2010, after the death of Streeter’s adoptive mother. Streeter remained estranged from her birth mother for “20 years,” telling The Mail they “don’t get on.”

“The relationship broke down somewhat because she was a bit awkward and had a big chip on her shoulder which I can’t blame her [for]. But in the last couple of years we’ve become somewhat close,” Stewart told Piers Morgan of his once-estranged daughter in 2011 (via The Daily Mail.) “It’s all water under the bridge now. It’s nerve-racking, too, but just as much so for him as it is for me,” Streeter told The Mail.

Stewart went on to impregnate four other women with seven other children (pictured above), of whom he now says, “It’s the best, proudest feeling to look at your kids.” Well, we sure hope so, Rod, you busy boy, you.

The Networth of Nipsey hussle-interesting facts.

Born Ermias Asghedom, rapper and philanthropist Nipsey Hussle was tragically gunned down in front of The Marathon Clothing store, a retail business he co-created. “The philosophy of this retail space is to be an experience, and while you’re in the process of the experience, you’re surrounded by branded products,” he explained in an interview with Billboard.

Hussle was a true entrepreneur, continually bringing unique marketing and business ideas to the rap game on his quest to make his vision a reality. In an interview with Complex, Hussle said he digested the lessons of hip-hop giants like Jay Z and Diddy and made them his own. “These are the moguls that built enterprise around their music,” he explained. “That mentality of using the core business, which for us is music, and then building this enterprise around yourself; you create wealth when you empower your team with it, and you take the pressure off of your core business. You could do [music] out of the love when you got all these other things that take care of the bottom line.”

His plan worked because, at the time of his unfortunate death, Hussle had amassed $8 million according to Celebrity Net Worth. Let’s take a look at how he got there.

The $100 mixtape

Nipsey Hussle’s outside of the box thinking and hustle (no pun intended) lead him to come up with a way to profit off his 2013 mixtape Crenshaw. According to Forbes, Hussle planned to release it on the mixtape download site, Datpiff, but a book changed his mind. “One of my mentors suggested I read a book called Contagious,” the rapper told Forbes. “In the second chapter, a restaurant owner created the first $100 Philly cheesesteak and got ridiculed but got a ton of prominent people interested.”

So with that marketing lesson learned, the then-unsigned rapper “made $100,000 by selling 1,000 copies” of the CD in less than 24 hours at a pop-up store in Los Angeles. Even Jay Z bought 100 copies. He also launched Proud2Pay, that rewards his “fans with concerts, priority access to new material, and one-of-a-kind gifts, like an old rap notebook or signed photo.”

Hussle then used that money for expenses for his record label, All Money In No Money Out. “It’s time we acknowledge what we all know: the music is free,” he said. “We shouldn’t force people to buy it, what we should do is create different methods to monetize the connection.” We have to admit, that’s pretty genius.

He created a record label, then major labels came to him

In November 2017, Nipsey Hussle signed a deal to partner his label, then-shortened to All Money In, with Atlantic Records for his first and only studio album Victory Lap. After a string of mixtapes, the album marked Hussle’s first major commercial release, and it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200albums chart, selling 300,000 traditional copies and streaming 21,000 album equivalents. The album went on to earn the Crenshaw product a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.

Hussle sat down with Fader to discuss why he partnered with Atlantic after fiercely independent early career. “I was always trying to figure out what the strategy would be but to go into the next level of the game, you have to tap into a resource pool whether it’s your own resources or a partnership or reinvesting,” he explained. “The decision was really about me thinking about the message in the music and it deserves to have a global platform. Once I figured that out, it was just about what terms our deal would be on and being able to justify that request when we sit down.”

Marathon Clothing was the first ‘smartstore’

Nipsey Hussle opened his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles on June 17, 2017. However, it wasn’t just “another retail brick and mortar,” Billboard reports, but rather, “a smartstore where customers can purchase merch and use an app to preview exclusive content from the West Coast rapper.”

Speaking to the publication, Hussle explained the concept and idea for the store. “So in order for me to keep the value of the retail brick and mortar, it has to be a unique experience. So the whole team sat with that for a couple years, and we were just trying to think, ‘How can we create the organic experience?’ I look at Supreme and it’s a skate brand,” he said. “They have a half-pipe in the middle of their store, and while you’re shopping, you might hear some trucks scraping the rail, because they’re back there skating. So I’m just thinking, ‘What’s the essence of the brand? What’s the core of the brand?'”

He goes on to say, just like Disneyland, he wanted to create a space where the content is “surrounded by products.” He planned to replicate the store “in the top 10 markets of the United States” to be “an urban Sanrio.”

He co-created a business incubator

Not only did Nipsey Hussle invest in himself, but he also used his entrepreneurial spirit to invest in the underrepresented as well. Per CBS Los Angeles, the rapper and real estate investor David Gross financed the development of South Central L.A.’s Vector 90, “a co-working space and business incubator to help the next generation of business leaders.” Opened in February 2018, Vector 90 also offers STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) classes for kids, and according to the Los Angeles Times, the center hopes to “serve as a conduit between underrepresented groups and corporate partners in Silicon Valley and beyond.”

“In our culture, there’s a narrative that says, ‘Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers,'” Hussle told the Los Angeles Times. “And that’s cool but there should be something that says, ‘Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg.’ I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that’s waving that flag.”

Not only will entrepreneurs have a space to work, the creators of the space would be potential investors. “Every year we’re gonna be able to do a first round of seeding for one of the entrepreneurs,” Hussle told Black Enterprise. “They can make a pitch and say, ‘This is what I’m doing. This is what we need to take it to the next level,’ and they can have access to investments in the same building.”

He has 10 acting credits

In addition to his music and clothing label, Nipsey Hussle made cameos in film and television including on the pilot episode of the hit TV series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend during the musical number “The Sexy Getting Ready Song.” Per Entertainment Weeklys review of the episode, the scene is “a genius takedown of all the nonsense women do/are expected to do to look socially presentable and attractive.” After he finished his rap, Hussle looks around the bathroom, and says, “This is some nasty a**, patriarchal bulls***. I gotta go apologize to some b******s. I’m forever changed by what I just seen.”

Deadline writes, “In 2007, [Hussle] appeared in the Rich Newey-directed Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s semi-autobiographical film I Tried as well as the 2010 feature Caged Animal which also starred Ving Rhames, Gillie Da Kid and Robert Patrick.” For a full list of Nipsey Hussle’s acting credits, be sure to check out his official IMDb.

His music topped the streaming charts

Nipsey Hussle’s music will continue to provide for his family, but unfortunately, the sharp spike in his streaming revenues came in the wake of his fatal shooting. TMZreports that Hussle’s catalog “has soared on Amazon and iTunes,” with many of his older tracks “jumping up in position by as much as 500%.” His debut, Grammy-nominated studio album, “Victory Lap,” rose “a whopping 504,766%” to become “the #1 album on Amazon’s Movers & Shakers list.”

The media outlet goes on to report that “Nipsey’s album and previous mixtapes actually occupy all four top slots on Amazon’s Movers & Shakers list,” and “‘Victory Lap’ has also jumped to #2 on Amazon’s overall bestsellers in digital music.” Over on iTunes, Victory Lap reached the second spot on its album chart, “and his mixtape, Crenshaw, has climbed to #12 on the list.”

According to Billboard, Hussle’s post-mortem album and song downloads “increased 2,776 percent in the U.S,” selling “a combined 15,000 copies.”

Limpopo mother accuses hospital for swapping her baby

Sesona Mahlahla Sesona Mahlahla

The premature baby weighed 172 grams and the mother was not allowed to see the baby for the first three days.

The premature baby weighed 172 grams and the mother was not allowed to see the baby for the first three days.

A Limpopo woman has accused the Mankweng Hospital of swapping her baby. DNA tests are now being conducted.

The mother gave birth earlier this May. The premature baby weighed 172 grams and the mother was not allowed to see the baby for the first three days.

On the fourth day she was allowed to feed the baby. It was on the fifth day that this story took a strange twist.

She was told to leave the ward but managed to look through a glass door at what was happening inside.

“Through the glass door I saw the nurse changing the name tag. After five minutes I was called back. She told me that this baby was no longer mine. I started screaming and phoned my relatives who came and spoke to the nurses,” the mother argues.

The Department says the woman is mistaken.

“Immediately after receiving the complaint, we launched our own investigation. We used the doctor’s report, hospital files and other evidence. We are convinced that the baby who the woman is denying is hers, is indeed hers,” says Limpopo Department of Health’s Neil Shikwambana.

He says the department has arranged for independent DNA testing and the results will be available in five weeks.

The question is: why would the nurses swap a baby? To what end and to whose benefit?

The woman’s family says they have little faith in the process and suggested that the results might even be tampered with.

Officials responded to a “rescue call” and reports of an unconscious female at her home in Suffolk County, New York, at 5.23am on Thursday, according to The Blast.

Ashley was administered CPR on the way to the hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

Reports suggest cops believe there was no foul play and they are classifying the death as “non-criminal”.

She had been open about her depression and mental health battle.

She appeared on Survivor: China in 2007 – but she was voted off on the second episode of that series.

Ashley also appeared on the April 2007 cover of Playboy Magazine.

“She performed in WWE from 2005-2008 and was beloved by her fellow Superstars and fans around the world. WWE offers its condolences to Ashley’s family and friends.”

She is survived by her teenage daughter Alexis, who turns 19 in June, and recently said she was looking forward to her own big 40th birthday next Sunday.

In a chilling Instagram post shared on January 5, Massaro spoke about death.

She wrote: “Those who died yesterday had plans for this morning. And those who died this morning had plans for tonight.

“Don’t take life for granted. In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart. You may never get to have that chance again.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger speak up after being attacked by an ‘idiot’ in South Africa

arnold schwarzenegger attacked kicked

He’s a good sport. Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked on Saturday during his annual Arnold Classic Africa sports festival. At the event in Sandton, Johannesburg, the 71-year-old was kicked from behind by one of the festival attendees, and he took to Twitter to share an update with fans about how he’s doing after the attack.

“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot,” the Terminator star wrote on Twitter. “I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.

Arnold@Schwarzenegger

Do me a favor: instead of sharing the video of the guy who wants to be famous, watch some of our @ArnoldSports athletes like this young hero proving that fitness is for everyone who deserve to be famous. They’re on my Snapchat. pic.twitter.com/EuMynJ7t1n97.5K7:15 PM – May 18, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy23.6K people are talking about this

Footage of the incident was captured on cell phone video by spectators at the event. In the clip, it seemed like Arnold had been taking a break from judging the jump rope competition to snap some selfies with fans when a young man ran up behind him and dropkicked Arnold right in the back. A man who seemed to be Arnold’s bodyguard immediately took action, and he grabbed the young man by his shoulders, lifted him up and escorted him out.

While many fans and fellow celebs were obviously concerned for Arnold, others were impressed by the way he absorbed the impact from the kick. “That looked like he jumped against a wall 😁 glad that [you’re] OK legend,” one fan wrote, and another commented, “It looks like he is more In pain than you 😅 💪🏼 #unbreakable Arnold.”

Arnold didn’t let the incident stop him from enjoying the multi-sport festivities, which included competitions in all areas of sports: from archery and dance to rugby and softball. The former California governor wanted to make sure that the incident that took place during Saturday’s event did not overshadow the hard work that all of the amazing athletes had been doing in order to compete.

“We have 90 sports here in South Africa at the @ArnoldSports, and 24,000 athletes of all ages and abilities inspiring all of us to get off the couch,” Arnold wrote. “Let’s put this spotlight on them.”
