As much as people look up to celebrities and treat them as gods, they are still normal people–they are susceptible to giving in and forgetting about their celebrity demeanors and engage in fights, too. After all, they are still humans.

It means they still get extremely happy and extremely upset. There are  times wherein they get annoyed toward other artists and colleagues in the industry they are in.

Here are some of the most controversial celebrity fights that happened in the past:

1. Gilas Pilipinas

Let’s start with the most recent. On July 2, the Gilas competed on the FIBA World Cup Asia qualifier held at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan. But in the midst of the competition, the two teams got into a brawl; involving quite a number of Gilas players. The incident went viral as it reached the international sports industry and was broadcasted via news programs worldwide.

2. Jeron Teng

Basketball player Jeron Teng and two of his former La Salle teammates, Thomas Torres and Norbert Torres were attacked and stabbed after getting involved with in a brawl. It ended up with the players sustaining multiple stab wounds from what revealed to be a ring knife. The 24-year-old  basketball player was required to undergo immediate medical procedure at St. Luke’s Medical City in Taguig due to excessive bleeding.
