In most cases, being a celebrity pays. However, no matter how rich they are, not all famous names can get themselves out of trouble. Some aren't as lucky as Justin Bieber or Jay Z who managed to pay their way into avoiding jail time.
For the following celebrities, fiction turned into fact after being sentenced behind bars.
Khloe has had her fair share of run-ins with the law. After violating her DUI probation, she was sentenced to 30 days in federal prison. Lucky for her, she was only locked up for a measly three hours. "There was a bomb threat," People reports Kardashian saying. "They put me in solitary confinement and the warden came down to talk to me and said, 'You're the one causing all the problems here ... There are all these bomb threats, and we think they're because of you.'"

Downey had it rough during his younger years in Hollywood. Back in 1999, he served a year of his three-year sentence at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison.
