One thing we often forget (or rather choose to forget) when we dish on our favorite celebrities is that they are human, too. And just like any other human beings, they are vulnerable and suffer from all sorts of mental conditions, which sometimes push them to do shocking things. Let’s recall 40 celebrity cases, some of which ended with tragedies.

39. Brooke Shields: Postpartum Depression
Gorgeous actress/model Brooke Shields suffered from Postpartum Depression, which is a very common problem for a lot of women around the world.
