10 . Eddie Murphy Found with a Transsexual Prostitute
In 1997, Eddie Murphy found himself in hot water when police caught him in the wee hours of the morning with a transsexual prostitute, Atisone Seuli, in his car. He tried to convince police that he was just being a Good Samaritan and giving the prostitute a ride; however, police noted that Murphy had picked Seuli up on a Hollywood strip that was notorious for its homosexual prostitute trade. When Murphy had picked up Seuli, police had been already been watching this particular prostitute because he had broken his probation by failing to take an HIV test. The A-list actor – who was married at the time with three children – was eventually released and not charged with any crime but, man, he still looked pretty guilty!
