Celebs Currently Under House Arrest

Commit the crime — do the time. Unless you're one of the many celebrities whose stints in jail could be likened to pulling a "Get out of jail free" card on a Monopoly board. Thanks to power, status, and money we've seen some A-listers walk out of jail in mere hours after being arrested. Khloe Kardashian left a California jail in 2007 after serving just three hours due to overcrowding, Nicole Richie set a record of serving just 82 minutes in 2007, and Paris Hilton's good behavior cut her 43-day sentence in half. Unlike the rest of us, who lack the influence of being famous, celebrities have a knack for being above the law. 

From tax evasion to murder, we've seen the rich and famous do some pretty unthinkable stuff. When it comes to being sentenced to house arrest, however, some celebrities make the best of their situations. Lindsay Lohan made a fashion statement with her probation sentence by posing in a bikini accessorized with her ankle monitor in 2007. The statement piece later became a high-fashion runway look, when Chanel dropped a shoe line inspired by Lohan's unlikely accessory the following year. In the comfort of their luxurious homes, house arrest is more of an inconvenience for these celebrities than anything else. We're taking a look at some celebrities who used their status to rise above the law –  but were eventually caught. Read on to discover which celebs are currently under house arrest and why.

NBA YoungBoy arrested on gun charges

YoungBoy Never Broke Again, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, found himself in trouble with the law in 2020. The rapper was arrested in Baton Rouge on drug and stolen firearm charges after he was found at an abandoned house while filming a music video. He was among several other individuals who are said to be a part of the street gangs "Never Broke Again" and "Bottom Boy Guerillas," according to police reports. Police searched several vehicles at the scene to find three grams of marijuana, a dose of hydrocodone, as well as handguns and an AK-47. Large amounts of money were also discovered in their search, with NBA YoungBoy carrying $47,000 in cash at the time. 

NBA YoungBoy was released from jail following the incident after posting a $75,000 bond. His problems were far from over, however, as he was arrested again in 2021 in a separate case on federal gun charges. Police pulled the rapper over on a warrant following a car chase and recovered a firearm, but YoungBoy NBA was later found not guilty of the crime in 2022. He still faces a gun charge in an ongoing case related to his arrest in 2020. 

At the time of writing, the rapper is currently serving probation time in Salt Lake City for drug possession and stolen-firearm charges in connection to his arrest in Baton Rouge in 2020. He admitted to Billboard that the house arrest has afforded him plenty of time to record music, calling it "the best thing that ever happened to me."

Anna Delvey is still living better than all of you

Anna Delvey's infamous crimes were so shocking they inspired a Netflix film. "Inventing Anna," tells the real-life story of Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorkin, and her scheme that conned several prominent members of New York's high society out of $275,000. From 2014 to 2017, the Russian immigrant scammed her rich friends, investors, and bank loan officers by disguising herself as a German heiress in possession of a $60 million dollar trust fund. Ultimately she was found guilty of second-degree grand larceny, theft, and one count of first-degree attempted grand larceny. The con artist was sentenced to four to 12 years in federal prison and was released in 2021 after serving a four-year sentence. 

Shortly after her prison release, Sorokin was hit with another federal charge. The fake heiress was held in custody by U.S. Immigration for violating her visa terms. While she faces deportation to Germany for overstaying, she awaits her trial on house arrest. Despite her situation, Sorokin is making the best of home life in New York City. 

As per her interview with Variety, she's earned $200,000 solely by selling original artwork she made behind bars. "I was constantly working while I was in jail and I sold a lot of my art, I wasn't just sitting there doing nothing," she said of paying her bail and rent. As she awaits her fate, Sorokin revealed she has no anxiety. "Everyone's saying I'm slumming, but I'm still living better than all of you," she told Variety.

Andrew Tate's human trafficking scandal

Andrew Tate may be a world champion kickboxer, but the Romanian athlete is best known for his controversial social media presence. Tate is infamous for his misogynistic and sexist comments about women, and his beliefs that they must heed men's expectations and demands. He has also made statements that women are partly culpable in rape cases. Tate was banned from Twitter in 2022 after tweeting (per Variety), " [I]f you put yourself in a position to be raped, you must bare [sic] some responsibility."

Aside from his derogatory comments, Tate made headlines yet again in 2022 when he was arrested on federal charges. Tate, his brother Tristan, and two Romanian women were taken into custody in December 2022 for human trafficking and rape charges. As of the time of writing, the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism in Romania is investigating Andrew and his brother for their possible connection to a criminal sex-trafficking group. The brothers' properties have been searched in connection with the alleged crimes after six victims claim they performed illicit acts under psychological coercion and physical abuse.

In March 2023, Andrew, Tristan, and the two other individuals won their appeal. A judge granted their release from prison and they were placed on house arrest during the ongoing investigation. "I respect what they've done for me and they will be vindicated in their decision because I'm an innocent man and I can't wait to prove it," Andrew said of the ruling. The kickboxing champion continues to keep up his contentious social media posts amidst the investigation.
