Kim Kardashian, Chris Brown Scott Disick and more celebs who were hit with scandals on Halloween
HALLOWEEN is fun for some, but for others — like Kim Kardashian, Scott Disick, and Ashley Benson — it's a reminder of scandals that will follow them in this life and the afterlife.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum, 41, for example, famously filed for divorce from then-husband Kris Humphries on Halloween in 2011.
Kim and Kris, 36, had been married for just 72 days at the time.
Three years later, Scott Disick took heat from fans after he was spotted donning a sheik costume for Halloween.
Fans were rightfully outraged by the outfit, deemed cultural appropriation.
Some Halloween controversies are lighter in nature, but scandalous just the same.
Take Ashley Benson's lion costume controversy.
In 2015, the Pretty Little Liars star came under fire for dressing up a Cecil the Lion, who was killed earlier that year.
Serious or not, some scandals are forever. The celebrities will be haunted by their bad judgment — and unfortunate luck — for Halloweens to come.
Here's a look inside Hollywood's Halloween curse.
Kim filed for divorce from Kris on Halloween in 2011. The split came 72 days after their televised wedding which, according to MTV cost about $10 million.
Leading up to the divorce filing, speculation had been rife that the duo had called it quits.
Kim listed her reasoning for the divorce as "irreconcilable differences."
She released a statement regarding the split, saying: "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision.
"I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."
The divorce dragged on for several drama-filled years.
in December 2011, Kris responded to Kim's legal filing, according to the NY Daily News. He filed to annul the marriage, rather than divorce the reality star.
Kris claimed his marriage was based on "fraud, accusing his estranged wife of trying to bolster ratings with a whirlwind romance.
The divorce was finalized in April 2013 — nearly four months after Kanye West announced that Kim was pregnant with their first child together, according to Insider.
In 2012, Chris Brown shared a photo of himself wearing a turban and fake beard with bullet casings around his body and a fake assault rifle on display.
The embattled singer posted a photo of himself on Instagram with friends wearing similar costumes, according to Billboard.
He was criticized for wearing the costume, which was deemed offensive by many of his followers.
Chris' mother, Joyce Hawkins, responded to the drama on Twitter, defending his Halloween look: "HALLOWEEN IS FOR FUN NOTHING MORE THAN JUST FUN.
"GET A LIFE PLEASE."
Tia Mowry came under fire in 2013 for dressing up as a geisha for a Halloween party, as reported by Alot.
One user commented: "My race and the races of others are not a costume for a cheesy holiday."
Another wrote: "Please do some research on cultural appropriation. Geisha costumes are not cool, girl."
The Kardashian family faced yet another cursed Halloween three years after Kim's divorce filing.
In 2014, Kourtney Kardashian's ex, Scott, was criticized by fans for wearing a sheik costume.
As reported by Buzzfeed at the time, he shared photos of the costume on his own Instagram account, and also appeared in a photo on Khloe Kardashian's page.
Scott posed with Khloe, 37, and a friend. The friend was wearing the same costume, while the Good American co-founder dressed up as a cat.
She captioned the post: "Sheik p***y."
Commenters were quick to call him out, and Khloe wasn't off the hook either.
One follower wrote: "@khloekardashian your caption has got to go."
Another commented: "why did scott disick dress like that for halloween who does he think he is"
A third comment read: "Another Halloween and these idiotic 'celebrities' continue to do this s**t."
CAUSING AN UP-ROAR
Ashley, 31, caused quite a stir with her 2015 lion costume.
The actress posted a photo of herself dressed as the king of the jungle, later revealing that it wasn't just any lion, as reported by ET at the time.
She claimed to be struggling to choose a look for the spooky holiday.
Ashley captioned her post: "Help! Can't decide on my Halloween costume this year!
"What do you guys thing of this Cecil the Lion costume?"
Cecil has been killed by a Minnesota dentist that July.
Several comments called the costume "offensive" and in "bad taste."
Ashley removed Cecil's name from the caption, and later issued an apology, but the controversy lives on.
That same Halloween, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin dressed up as Nancy Spungeon and Sex Pistols frontman Sid Vicious — a costume recently redone by Kourtney and beau Travis Barker.
There was one major difference between Kourtney, 42, and Travis' version of the costume: theirs didn't feature any Nazi symbolism.
Harry, 69, was photographed wearing a red T-shirt with a swastika on it, according to a report from People at the time.
Lisa and Harry released a statement on the matter via Instagram, saying: "If I hurt you we were being authentic to the characters of Sid and Nancy for our Halloween costumes.
"It hurt and angered many of you and we are deeply sorry for that. That was never our intention. We did not mean to offend. With love, Lisa and Harry."
FRIGHT NIGHT FIGHT
In 2018, reports swirled about an alleged incident involving Brandi Glanville.
ET Canada reported that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was escorted out of the Casamigos Halloween party after allegedly attacking actor Kobie "DJ K-LUV" Randolph.
Brandi was apparently out with an ex of Kobie's. The woman allegedly punched him and split his lip open.
The RHOBH star also reportedly hit Kobie. She denied being involved, tweeting: "I didn't hit anyone or see a fight at all! I don't know 'DJ K-LUV' end of story."
Halsey, 27, an G-Eazy called it quits around Halloween 2018.
Evidently the pair had already committed to a couples costume prior to the split.
Halsey was spotted partying in a Poison Ivy costume. Her ex went to a different party dressed as Two Face.
HollywoodLife reported at the time that she was seen celebrating with shirtless men.
An insider said she "seemed unfazed and not bothered at all by her recent breakup" during the bash.
