The Corkman has admitted his “self-destruct button” cost him a lot but he’s not the only star to fly off the handle
Roy Keane has become notorious for his fiery temper since rising to fame in soccer.
The Corkman has admitted his “self-destruct button” cost him a lot.
In his new autobiography The Second Half Keano, 43, said his temper meant he was the loser in Saipan in 2002 and blamed it for his early departure from Old Trafford.
But he’s not the only star to fly off the handle…
Zinedine Zidane, 34, was known for being an artistic footballer but the Algerian-born star also had a fiery edge to him.
He was sent off for headbutting Materazzi in the chest in the second period of extra-time in the World Cup final in Berlin in 2006.
Zidane said he lashed out because the Italian insulted his mother.
In 1998 Zidane was slapped with a two-match ban for stamping on Saudi Arabia skipper Fuad Amin in the group stages of the World Cup.
And his final season at Juventus was soured after he headbutted Jochen Kientz during a Champions League game with Hamburg.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 44, was known almost as much for her bad temper as she was for her catwalk beauty.
In February 2000, she pleaded guilty to a 1998 assault on her then assistant Georgina Galanis after attacking her with a telephone in a hotel room and threatening to throw her out of a moving car.
Then in November 2004 Naomi was accused of allegedly head-butting personal assistant Amie Castaldo in the face, biting her on the lip and yanking her to the ground by her hair.
Most recently she carried out 200 hours’ community service in June 2008 for kicking and spitting at police after going “berserk” on an aircraft at Heathrow.
Another celebrity who is prone to irate temper tamtrums is pop brat Justin Bieber.
Just last month the Canadian had charges against him dropped, which stemmed from an incident last December when Bieber and five other people were picked up by a limousine from a Toronto nightclub.
Police alleged the 20-year-old singer hit the driver several times in the back of the head.
He’s due back in court soon to fight new charges after he was arrested for dangerous driving and assault in a bust-up involving a photographer.
Liam, 42, is no stranger to outbursts and one of his most infamous actually ended Oasis for good.
A back-stage bust up at the Rock En Seine festival in Paris in 2009 saw him smash up brother Noel’s guitar, and they haven’t performed together since.
R&B star Chris Brown, 25, last month pleaded guilty to assault in Washington DC, where he was accused of punching a man who tried to join a picture the singer was taking with two women outside a hotel.
He was jailed for 108 days for the attack as it violated his probation which stemmed from an assault on his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Tyson, who served a three-year prison term after being convicted in 1992 of rape, once bit off part of opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear during a boxing match.
And although the World Heavyweight Champion has changed his ways, the 48-year-old landed himself in hot water just last month when he lost his temper live on Canadian TV and called his interviewer a piece of s**t.
In July, Ex-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was suspended from all football-related activity for four months for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup.
The 27-year-old Uruguayan was also banned for nine international matches and the first nine games of the Premier League
season, and fined €100,000 for the disgraceful antics.
In March, Kanye, 36, was sentenced to two years’ probation for assaulting a photographer at LA International Airport.
He was also ordered to do 24 anger management sessions and complete 250 hours of community service after paparazzo Daniel Ramos claimed the rapper punched him and grabbed his camera in an unprovoked attack in July 2013.
He was also arrested in 2008 after another bust-up with photographers again at LAX Airport.
