Turns out Hollywood is still a big bad place and the fame and the riches only make it more difficult. Hundreds of women came out in the last six months with their allegations of sexual and domestic violence. While some famous men were found guilty, some are still under investigation. It's astounding that some women who are so fierce and independent had to undergo through such trauma.

Names like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman and several other A-listers came together to fight the injustice and exploitation of female movie stars and models at the hands of powerful and exploitative execs, and launched the Time’s Up movement, which found widepread resonance.

Here are the celebs who have been abused at some point in their lives.

1Rihanna went through it too

Rihanna's physical assault in the hands of her then-boyfriend Chris Brown made global headlines and almost cost him his career. What made things worse are the pictures of a battered Rihanna with bruises on her face. Not only were Rihanna's fans enraged, the people on showbiz spoke out against Chris's behaviour and to this day, Chris Brown struggles with his reputation.

Over him completely

As the years passed Rihanna has moved on from the tragedy and has instead chosen to take the high road. Her appearance at a celebrity basketball match made news a few years ago, as she was seen shading Chris who was playing in the court. But despite the bad blood, Rihanna has chosen to distance herself from the controversy. Chris on the other hand has no respite from Rihanna's fans who get angry even if he tries to wish Rihanna a happy birthday.
