8 Top celebrity meltdowns in New York City hotels

1 Johnny Depp — The actor’s 1994 carnage at The Mark Hotel remains legendary. When neighbors awoke to the sound of shattering glass, he blamed an armadillo. Police found him and then-girlfriend Kate Moss sitting in a pile of wreckage in the $1,200 suite. Depp agreed to pay nearly $10,000 in damages.

2 Sid Vicious — In 1978, the punk rocker told police he awoke in room 100 at the Chelsea Hotel to find girlfriend Nancy Spungen stabbed. He said she must have fallen on the knife. Released on bail, he died from a heroin overdose.

3 Charlie Sheen — A drunk, cocaine-fueled Charlie Sheen upturns a room while looking for his wallet in 2010 while his family sleeps in a nearby Plaza suite. A hooker locked in the closet calls for help.

4 Daniel Baldwin — Also at the Plaza, actor Daniel Baldwin left pipe stems and a silver spoon with crack cocaine in a $600-a-night suite in 1998. He ran naked through the halls while “babbling incoherently” before being taken to Roosevelt Hospital.

5 Russell Crowe — Arrested in 2005 after bouncing a telephone off a desk clerk’s forehead at the Mercer Hotel when he couldn’t make an international call.

6 Edie Sedgwick — Edie Sedgwick, 1960s “it” girl and afraid of the dark, lit candles to help her sleep. The flames caught a rug at the Hotel Chelsea in 1966, lighting up the entire room and killing her cat, Smoke.

7 Courtney Love and her 16-year-old daughter Frances Bean — Mother, daughter duo flooded the floor of a room at The Inn on Irving Place in 2009, leaving dirty needles and feminine products behind.

8 Cameron Douglas — The son of Michael Douglas was dealing crystal meth before being busted at the Gansevoort Hotel in a 2008 sting and sentenced to five years in jail.
