Learning to drive a car is one of the most basic skills a person of any social status can attain nowadays. Sure, there’s some fidelity required and memorizing a few rules, but even a child can push the pedal to the metal and smoke everyone on the highway. For some reason, the more money you have, the more careless of a driver you become, which is why many celebs hire personal chauffeurs to go shopping and visit events.
Sadly, some stars think the rules were not written for them and proceed to break the law repeatedly. Here are some of the worst celebrity drivers you don’t want to hitch a ride with.
1. Justin Bieber
Aah, remember when Bieber was caught drag racing while high? No license, a rented Lambo, and a 19-year-old “star” who thought the world was his oyster. Thankfully Bieber paid his dues and a $50,000 fine, but this incident will forever be looming over his shoulder. In January of last year, JB posted a comment on that whole situation, saying he was “hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, misled, misunderstood, and angry at god.”
Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, has never been an outstanding citizen, with crimes like assault, drug possession, and animal cruelty on his file. So you can imagine multiple “reckless driving” charges would not be a huge stretch. In fact, DMX was caught driving without a license so many times that people started wondering if he even had one at all. Add to that multiple DUI charges and posing as an FBI agent, and you get a real-life GTA character. Sadly, DMX died of a heart attack at age 50 in 2021.
3. Kylie Jenner
If you thought texting or taking selfies while driving was bad, then you’d be 100% correct. Kylie has been seen doing that on multiple occasions, but it gets worse. The young star got into a car accident just two weeks after getting her license. Kylie smacked her SUV into a poor Toyota, causing it to crash into the back of another car parked there. Aside from that, Ms. Jenneg got a couple of speeding tickets and small stuff like that until the day her brand new Range Rover was rear-ended by some random. At least this one wasn’t her fault, right?
