Before fans got so engrossed with the latest teen stars, before there was a so-called "Bieber fever," there were other fandoms - say Justination (Justin Timberlake) or Gosling fan club --who were very fascinated with just about everything that their idols did. From where they went to who they were spending time with, fans seem obsessed with knowing about celebrities and this kind of attitude has not yet gone away. We all actually have an appetite for celebrity gossip and it is actually not surprising anymore, considering it's either one of our two favorite things: the good news and the bad news.

As for the topic that's faster than light in spreading across publications and websites or even Youtube? Hollywood scandals.

While some stars suffered from the dark aftermath of scandals, there are also those who stayed strong despite the judgments they received. Just take a look at these 5 Hollywood stars who were then famous, got involved in a scandal, yet became even more famous.

Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane...and Kari Ann Peniche?

Who said threesome are just for pornos? The hunk doctor McSteamy - as Dr. Grey call him - of "Grey's Anatomy" was involved in a bizarre scandal. The video tape featured all-nude Dane with also nude wife Rebecca Gayheart, and ex Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche. The video that went out in 2009 was placed on Gawker web site where the three laid together in bed while discussing their supposed porn names. No sexual acts were seen on the video but it the mere fact that the three weirdly bonded together in nudity got people looking at the in reckoning. However, Dane still managed to capture more fans as he went on with his "Grey's Anatomy" project.

Ben Affleck

The "Daredevil" star was previously the subject of headlines when his wife, Jennifer Garner, admitted the actor cheated on her with their nanny Christine Ouzounian. The arguably gorgeous nanny was however said not the reason for the couple's divorce decision (which the couple announced one day after their 10th year anniversary), but who knows what happens between Affleck and Ouzounian as they were caught by Garner flirting, hence the actor's confession of his little fling with their nanny.

Since the unforbidden romance was unfolded last year, Affleck has remained silent and even enjoyed a box office success with his "Batman vs Superman" movie and is again set to break records with the upcoming "Justice League."

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence was one of those involved in a non-sexual act scandal or cheating plots. The nude photos of the actress that went out online in 2014 were all meant for her boyfriend who was then living afar from her, thus sending him her private photos.

Lawrence actually had a hard time accepting the ordeal of the said leaked photo scandal that she has even been expressing her disgust, saying that people who looked at her nude photos committed a sexual offense. But even if the actress was then afraid on how the incident will affect her career, it turned out that fans did not actually care as her "Mocking Jay Part 11," which went out three months later, enjoyed a massive success with a $755.4 million box office sales.

Kanye West

And if Dane had a bizarre supposedly threesome scandal, Kanye had his more bizarre sex tape as he was featured in a 20 minute video making out with a woman who was weirdly a lookalike of Kim Kardashian.

The tape went out back in 2012 and was then for sale to the highest bidder. The rapper said the video was taken before he and Kim started to date in April of the same year. The reality TV star though did not seem to care as she also had starred in her very own scandalous video.

Kim Kardashian

Kim and Kanye really seem to be meant for each other as they have a lot in common. They're both famous, they're both rich, and they both have a sex video scandal.

The infamous sex tape of Kim with ex-boyfriend Ray J brought her up to the pedestal of Hollywood and now, she and her family are a few of the most-watched socialites and also one of the riches!

The video was reportedly made in 2003 but only surfaced online after 7 years. Kim who was then only known as Paris Hilton's (who also had a sex tape as her ticket to fame) friend and stylist instantly became the most famous woman on Hollywood. Kim and her family began to appear in a TV network, where the Kardashians starred in a reality TV series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

With all these success stories behind the scandals they all got involved in, who said that there is such thing as bad publicity?
