The Daily Beast: Hush Money Scandals

9 of 10

Louie Anderson

Comedian Louie Anderson learned the hard way that paying someone off doesn’t always stop the story. In 1993, the comedian allegedly propositioned a man, Richard John Gordon, at a Las Vegas casino, and Gordon then tried to blackmail Anderson. Fearing his family-friendly image would be damaged, Anderson paid $100,000, but Gordon wanted more money. When he came back to Anderson for $250,000 in 2000, Anderson went to the authorities, and Gordon ended up being arrested after a high-speed chase with the LAPD. He went to prison for the extortion attempt.
