Like Disney, Nickelodeon is famous for churning out young talent but, unlike its competitor, the company hasn’t had as many headline-grabbing scandals. That doesn’t mean that Nickelodeon doesn’t have some skeletons in the closet! We have a list of 8 shocking Nickelodeon scandals that most people don’t know about:

8. Drake Bell’s DUI Conviction

Drake & Josh star Drake Bell found himself on the wrong side of the law when he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in 2009 and 2015. He struck a plea deal with the judge and was sentenced to 96 hours in jail and four years probation for his second DUI conviction, but he only ended up spending one day in jail because of overcrowding and good behavior.


7. Jamie Lynn Spears’ Teen Pregnancy

Jamie Lynn Spears’ surprise pregnancy in December 2007 is probably the biggest teen pregnancy in Hollywood history. She was only sixteen at the time and her boyfriend was only 18 and no one could believe that she wasn’t practicing any birth control and that her mother had no idea that her Jamie Lynn was having sex. Many were even wondering Casey would be charged with statutory rape given that Jamie Lynn was obviously underage, but nothing came of that.
