Despite all of the glitz and glam of Hollywood, there is a dark underbelly to fame — namely, you attract all the crazies! Many celebrities have extensive security teams, and it’s no wonder. This list takes a look at some stars who have come face to face with scary kidnapping situations.
10. Victoria Beckham
While she wasn’t actually abducted, there have been many close calls that were luckily foiled by the authorities. Back in 2000, Scotland Yard removed Victoria and her family from their home once a plot to kidnap her and her child were discovered. Later that same year, while rehearsing for the Brit Awards, a red dot appeared on Victoria’s chest. Everyone panicked and police later speculated that the would-be assassin fled through a security door. The Beckham family continues to receive threats and further plans have been obstructed by police so that fortunately everyone has remained safe.David Fisher/REX
