Celebs’ most shocking Las Vegas scandals – from Prince Harry’s naked parties to A-list star busted for casino con | The Sun

WITH 24-hour casinos, nightclubs galore and strip joints by the dozen, it’s hardly a surprise Las Vegas has earned the nickname ‘Sin City’.

And it seems the party capital, nestled in Nevada's deserts, is still a hotspot for celebrities longing to let loose. 

We reported how Jack Grealish stumbled out of a club at 3am and the following day partied with bikini-clad beauties at a boozy pool party.

The Three Lions favourite, 26, isn’t alone as he was joined by England teammate Declan Rice, 23, to drink and dance the night away. 

Footballers aren’t the only ones lapping up all that Sin City has to offer as a number of A-listers have been gone a little too wild and fell foul of the law.

Now we look back at some of the craziest celebrities stories to emerge from the party capital.

Cocaine busts

US socialite Paris Hilton hit the headlines when she was arrested for cocaine possession in 2010 alongside her then-boyfriend Cy Waits.

The then 29-year-old was apprehended by police after noticing an unusual smell coming out of a car, which they believed to be marijuana.

Later, police claimed Paris dropped “a bindle of cocaine in a plastic bag” from her purse and then denied the bag was hers.

Eventually, the reality star admitted the truth and received a one-year suspended sentence, a $2,000 (£1,632) fine and was ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service.

Paris isn’t alone. A fresh-faced Bruno Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, was also arrested that year after being found with 2.6 grams of cocaine.

He was detained by security staff, who found him in a hotel bathroom with a “baggy of white powder”, after a nightclub gig.

In 2011, Bruno – who was nominated for seven Grammys – pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay $2,000 and do 200 hours of community service.

'One of history's shortest celeb marriages'

Pop sensation Britney Spears joined the roster of celebrities to tie the knot in Vegas, with her childhood friend turned boyfriend Jason Allen Alexander, in 2004

He claimed the then-20-year-old singer “just came out and asked me” and his response was: “Sure, you know! Let’s do this.”

But 55 hours after saying ‘I do’ their marriage was annulled, with Britney’s family and agents allegedly “going crazy" .

In 2012, Jason told ABC News they were furious "because there was no prenup” agreement.

Later, in a legal filing, the singer’s team claimed Britney “lacked understanding of her actions, to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage".

The couple's time as husband and wife was cut short and became known as one of the shortest celebrity marriages in history.

Casino ban after 'card cheat' claim

Hollywood star Ben Affleck received a lifetime ban from Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Casino in 2014 after allegedly trying to cheat at blackjack. 

He was accused of counting cards – where someone remembers how many high and low cards have been played to see if the dealer has an advantage in the next hand.

Ben admitted the claim was true that same year, but felt cheated by casinos because, in his opinion, it was all above board and he took time to hone his skills.

“Once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack,” he told Details magazine.

“I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos.”

Tyson takes a bite

Legendary boxer Mike Tyson was temporarily suspended from sport after a horrifying attack on Evander Holyfield at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in 1997.

The renowned bruiser had something to prove after losing his heavyweight title to Holyfield, who came out of retirement for the fight, in an 11th round knockout a year earlier. 

During the rematch, Tyson was headbutted, which opened a cut above his right eye, and in round two after hearing the crowd chanting his opponent's name he lost control.

Iron Mike spat out his mouthguard and bit a chunk out of Holyfield’s right ear, dropped the fleshy piece on to the canvas and later tried to go for his other ear.

The match was abandoned, which led to Tyson’s boxing licence being temporarily revoked and he was fined $3million (£2.45m) plus legal fees. 

Royal’s rude run around in the buff

Long before settling into married life and fatherhood, Prince Harry savoured a wild weekend at a £1,000-a-day VIP bungalow with pals, back in 2012.

During the day, they were at the MGM Grand Hotel's infamous Wet Republic pool parties, which were known for excessive drinking and casual hook ups.

Unfortunately for Harry, mobile phone snaps emerged of the partying prince that showed him naked apart from a necklace with a nude female hiding behind him.

The royal and his gang had been playing strip pool in a luxury suite and the now-famous photos were seen by millions around the world.

It raised questions about the royal’s safety as security guards – funded at the taxpayers’ expense – seemed to have turned a blind eye.

One source at the time said the unidentified Scotland Yard officer assigned to Harry was “enjoying the party more than protecting the Prince from himself”.

In 2011, the accused was described as ‘a rich man, an A-lister and international celebrity’ but his identity was never revealed publicly.

He settled out of court and according to TMZ the lawsuit was filed “as a warning shot” because the amount initially offered to silence the victim was “way too low”.
