Gary Glitter. After raping three underage girls, Glitter (his real name is Paul Gadd), a British singer and songwriter, was eventually sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Pleasure P. Once nominated for a Grammy, Pleasure P (Marcus Cooper) was also accused of molesting a child. According to Vibe, the mother of the child has confirmed that no such molestation ever took place, but the accusations still stuck.
