You’d think with an endless flow of cash and bounties of complimentary gifts, celebrities would be more than willing to pay for something every once in a while. Apparently not! Because it didn't stop these seven celebrities from treating themselves to the five-finger discount!
Britney Spears is worth millions, but it didn’t stop her from helping herself! Most famously, she was caught by the paparazzi walking out of a gas station with a lighter—and taunting them by sarcastically saying, “I stole something, oh, I’m bad!”
