Celebrity Scandals

The drama never ends! If there's one thing that never fails to stir up buzz, it's celebrity scandals. There's no denying that 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but these Canadian stars have found themselves wrapped up in some serious drama.

Over the past six months, several of our favourite couples have sadly called it quits, earning them plenty of media attention.

On the bright side, other celebs like Grimes and Elon Musk have recently welcomed a baby together. Although this is usually something to celebrate, the child's unique name has caused some negative reactions.

Allegations of assault, white privilege, and even reality TV shows gone wrong are some of the year's biggest scandals so far. With 2020 only being half over, who knows what else we'll see in the coming months.

Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich's Divorce

Just a few weeks ago, news broke that Hough and her Canadian beau were calling it quits.

Breakup rumours had been swirling for quite some time, and the two had been spending some time apart during quarantine, so news of their split didn't come as a huge shock.

Jessica Mulroney's White Privilege Scandal

After sending threatening messages to Black Canadian blogger Sasha Exeter, Mulroney found herself in the midst of a major scandal.

The mother of three has since been dropped by brands like Hudson's Bay and Bell Media. Shortly after the situation escalated, her husband announced that he would be stepping down from his role at etalk.

Justin Bieber Addresses Sexual Assault Rumours

Sexual assault allegations are not something to be taken lightly, and Bieber has been haunted by some serious ones for several years now.

Recently, the Ontario native took to Twitter to clear his name by releasing in-depth receipts, arguing the allegations to be "factually impossible".

The 25-year-old is currently in the midst of a defamation lawsuit and is looking to collect $20 million from his accusers.

Elon Musk & Grimes' Baby Name

Perhaps one of the most controversial pregnancy announcements of all time belongs to none other than Grimes, who shocked the world with her NSFW photo.

As her pregnancy went on, the 32-year-old eventually confirmed that her boyfriend of two years, Elon Musk, is the father.

When the baby was born just a few months ago, the couple revealed their incredibly controversial name choice — X Æ A-Xii.

Francesca Farago & Harry Jowsey's Breakup 

Farago and Jowsey made waves when they revealed they were still together after filming Netflix's Too Hot to Handle.

Despite being quarantined in separate countries, the duo seemed to be making the most of their young love and even shared YouTube videos of their past adventures together.

Farago recently revealed that her Australian boyfriend dumped her, and the pair have since unfollowed one another on Instagram.

More recently, the Ottawa-born star was spotted holding hands with youtuber Tana Mongeau.

Big Brother Canada Season 8

Reality TV is known for being dramatic, but we've never seen anything quite like the mess that was Big Brother Canada's eighth season.

This year's edition only saw one actual eviction. Everyone else who left the house was due to self-eviction or "breach of house rules."

After just a few weeks in the BBCAN house, producers made the difficult decision to stop filming for the year in order to protect the houseguests as well as the show's crew.
