2012 was a year of awesome movies, killer new music, fresh new faces and, of course, some of the most extreme celebrity meltdowns we’ve seen to date. Here’s a look back at some of the biggest celebrity meltdowns of 2012.
Demi Moore was recently spotted partying in Miami after a recent rumoured breakup with 26-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel, but it was her January 2012 hospitalization for substance abuse that garnered her a ton of unwanted media attention this year. The 50-year-old actress experienced an epileptic seizure after inhaling “whip-its,” aka nitrogen oxide. She recovered in the Cique Lodge in Utah.
After being arrested for DUI and making headlines for various hit-and-runs, Amanda Bynes captured the attention of the media for her rather strange behaviour this year. Amanda locked herself in a dressing room for hours at a clothing and made a scene taking off her top and reapplying her makeup in the middle of a cycling class at her gym in LA, despite claiming she’s doing well and retired to Us Weekly. Check out the video below of Amanda behaving in an erratic manner with a member of the paparazzi. We know Amanda’s parents are concerned about her and have hopefully had a chance to get close to their daughter over the holidays.
2012 was supposed to be Lindsay Lohan’s comeback year with Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, but she ended up with her usual amount of legal drama and personal life insanity. The actress was the suspect in yet another jewelry theft, had a high profile hit and run incident, reportedly flew off the handle at a club during Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca’s birthday and allegedly assaulted a woman in New York recently while out partying with boy band The Wanted. Whatever will 2013 bring, Linds?!

Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina Lohan also made headlines (and viral videos) in 2012 when she appeared on Dr. Phil in September and behaved so strangely that many viewers just assumed Dina was intoxicated while filming the show. Dr. Phil even wondered whether Dina was acting strangely. You have to see the clip for yourself to form an opinion.
LeAnn Rimes checked into rehab a day before her 30th birthday in 2012 to deal with anxiety and stress. Apparently, LeAnn went to rehab to help her find the proper tools to deal with her fears that husband Eddie Cibrian will cheat. Since she’s been out of rehab, she’s been accused of having an eating disorder so extreme that she takes laxative by Eddie’s ex-wfie Brandi Glanville, and also made an extremely strange appearance on The X Factor that you should judge for yourself in the link below.
