Top Ten Saddest Celebrity Deaths of All TimeHate when people on T.V. dies like anything :-(
Yep a hard thing to swallow, a'right
Here's the list to the most shocking celebrity deaths in history...
The Top Ten
Definitely the saddest! It truly felt as if time had froze that day, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news. No celebrity death has caused me as much heartache as Michael Jacksons, even after 9 years just thinking about his death brings tears to my eyes. Rest in peace Michael, you are truly missed. Your incredible legacy lives on through your music. There will never be anyone like him.
My heart simply broke when he died. I don't think I'll ever be the same. There was something so inherently good about him. I always knew that people like Michael are not long for this world,but there is nothing that could have prepared me for the day. There are many singers/actors that I like,but Michael is the only one that I feel a deep connection with..I may not have known him,but I could definitely feel him. I am honored to have walked the earth at the same time as he did and to have been breathing the same air as he did. He was a genius without a doubt,but most importantly he was a TRULY beautiful human being and it showed in everything he did. I still cry from time to time when I think of him. It is hard not to.
The legend will always live on, in his amazing music.
Being the greatest entertainer in the world, we'll miss him forever.V 34 Comments
His death was the most saddest death. I feel for Kurt and Heath, but they died because of themselves, drugs and stupid. For music, what part of "Imagine all the people living life in peace" don't people understand.? He was a real musician, memebr of most successful Band and a peacemaker.
He was a great man. He was also a peacemaker and amazing lead singer of The Beatles, one of the greatest bands of all time following Queen. Rest In Peace John Lennon - Draco
Still the biggest loss of them all. Second is robin Williams
John is first but...Please add Anthony Bourdain somewhere on this listV 9 Comments
When a celebrity dies, most people just ignore it and go on with their lives. But when Robin Williams died, people took notice. He was an amazing person with a wonderful personality who suffered from crippling depression, as well as the beginnings of dementia and Parkinsons. But anyone who grew up in the 90's can tell you Robin Williams held a special place in our hearts.
He was a comedian. As a comedian he made millions life and made people smile, but no one realized he himself needed a little bit of that joy he gave us. When he died I couldn't believe it how could such a happy man take his own life? I have to admit I shed a few I tears I hope people will remember 80 years from now for he was an amazing man.
One of the few celebrity deaths I cried at upon hearing it. Such a great man, and one whose work I grew up on and loved with a passion. The fact that such a kind and funny man was dealing with so many awful things in life (like dementia and Parkinsons) is such a sad demonstration of how cruel the world is. RIP to a one of a kind talent. - Mrveteran
A great and loveable person with a great personality. So unexpected for someone so positive like him to commit suicide. RIP. - B1ueNewV 34 Comments
Linkin Park gave my childhood a depth I can't express in words. In the past 12 years, it's those memories associated with Linkin Park in my head that I cherish the most. Chester's voice, whether soft or a scream, were always beautiful, energetic, passionate and revolutionary. I care, Chester. We all care...
Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were the first celebrity deaths that I got emotional over. Two incredible musicians as well as incredible human beings and the world is a much darker place without them.
Chester was such an amazing singer and screamer in Linkin Park, and when I heard about his death in July via a Clevver News video, I was sad about it and I've been on a Linkin Park binge for quite a while. Personally, I think his death was one of the saddest celeb deaths of 2017. Rest in peace Chester. You may have died, but you'll always be remembered as a legend. We all miss you so much. :'( - dbret12
Chester Bennington made me smile and sing along to his music since I was 4 so he definitely deserves a spot on this list. He will be truly missed forever and always.V 16 Comments
Definitely the saddest. He had such a bright future. He never lived to see himself win an Academy award and the saddest thing is he died thinking everyone would hate his portrayal as The Joker when in reality it was one of the greatest.
I think it bothers me more that we'll never get to see him do more. The joker was arguably the best performance of all time. I hate to see that his legacy has to live on through that role, when he could have easily become the most famous actor in history if he were still alive. - ChickenKing
Devastating. Such an absolute tragedy. Someone so young, who was just finding his momentum. I still dream about the amazing things we might've seen him in.
Wish he had lived on to do other work, being so great as the jokerV 10 Comments
His death was not only horrible to you guys or the rest of his fans, his death was a tragedy that affected the whole world, as well as the movie industry, even the president and government were heartbroken when he was killed in an accident, he was a hero who was perhaps the best race car driver ever and did feats that no one else could ever do, and he saved a lot of people, his death put the whole movie industry towards rock bottom.
At first I wasn't sad because I've never watched any of the Furious movies. Then I watched them one by one and I broke into tears at the end of Furious 7. His death was one of the saddest.
He was a beautiful person. Happy, exuberant, and compassionate. He didn't deserve to get burnt alive. He deserved a peaceful death at least.
Miss you so bad Paul R.I.P.V 19 Comments
Kurt Cobain spoke for those who couldn't and he still does today. His lyrics were simple and yet deep at the same time, so many people including myself can still relate to his music. He was not a god, he was a good guy who loved to make music and share his ideas, his death only immortalised his work, contrary to the the official police report, Kurt didn't commit suicide, check it out for yourself in the documentary Soaked In Bleach, no matter what you make of his death, think about his life, his achievements his positive things. It makes me happy that someone like him actually lived. We need more people like him. Rest in peace Kurt.
It hurts that I will never get to meet this great musician, Nirvana is my favorite band but it is sad that I will never get to meet the lead singer in person. Kurt was amazing but I understand that he couldn't handle being "mainstream" and he was depressed, so the only way out for him was suicide. At least he isn't suffering, but it makes me so sad that Kurt isn't in this world with us anymore. :,(
The god of music
U miss him so muchV 7 Comments
Such an amazing, talented, and kind man lost to us. His legend will live on forever.
Why is he not number one? Are you kidding me? 25 years later and I still think about him everyday.

RIP Legend. First person because of whom I learned to be more confident and have pride.V 13 Comments
I am so happy about all of his life's work and I am sad he passed last night. I have always followed him in his footsteps and loved all the Marvel characters. RIP Stan Lee
I think stan lee should come in the top 3 because his whole life he got hate and was abused by his daughter and without him about 3000 of the super heros we know and love would of not exist
Definitely, Stan Lee's death was truly heartbreaking, he was a genius, and probably one of the best entertainers (or probably the best one).
Amazing person single/handedly created his own universe that still lives on Today, Rest In Peace Stan lee. Excelsior!V 3 Comments
A man a truly respect as his career is my life vocation. A man who enjoyed his job until the end. An amazing scientist, an incredible adventurer, a fearless man who went to the most lost places of earth to risk his life for the most genuine animal documentary of all time. His death was in one way violent, but I think what would make him happy is that he died doing what he loved, doing that one job that made him famous and that defined him. To conclude, the most amazing thing about thing about this man, at the very end, when he was bleeding to death, he remained calm and faded away in calm. A truly amazing man that should be respected and remembered forever.
He was my inspiration as a kid his death tore me apart he will live on as my hero
I watched his stuff when I was little. His death made me very sad. He was my hero.

I never thought this would happen, truly a masterpiece, a legend, definitely should be high. R.I.P. - SailorSedna
He was a legend. created SpongeBob SquarePants. R.I.P.
The creator of SpongeBob, dead at 57 from ALS.
He made the show and he will never be forgotten, and we learned the show’s not good without him. and it’s expected to end.
Perhaps the biggest name to die on television in 2018.

My family aren't fans of the Star Wars movies, so I didn't even know until January 2nd, when I went back to school. All my friends are huge fans of the Star Wars movies, so it was all they wanted to talk about. I didn't believe them, so I looked it up online later, and I almost cried. May the force be with her.
I miss Carrie. She was strong, a beautiful princess, a great actress and a wonderful women. May the Force be with her.
Should be number one, her loss really hit me hard, I still get sad knowing that she is not here
Why didn't they kill her off in the moviesV 5 Comments
He wasn't done making stuff yet, and it's a shame we'll never see what was coming next.
If he was still alive. Apple's newer stuff would be much better. - B1ueNew
He was one of the creative minds - iliekpiez
A beautiful and talented soul, stolen away from the music world. She had an intoxicating light that attracted everyone, and brought life into the music industry. She made me fall in love with music at the age of 7. Gone too soon.
She even had a child named after her. Selena Gomez was said to be named after her. I wish she had lived to hear that. I'm sure it would have touched her heart.
So Sad wish she were still here
She was amazing person. she still is. I hope the woman who killed selena should BURN IN HELL.V 6 Comments
THE BEST BASSIST IN THE WORLD HE WAS
Sadly could not reach potential - iliekpiez
This man shaped my whole world. I fell in love with him when I saw The Labyrinth as a child, I was just fascinated by him. I then sought out his music, and I'm still finding new things to listen to to this day. What a library of recordings this man has. He's brought so much to so many of us, and I feel blessed that he let us love him for the alien that he was for as long as he was here. Thank you, David Bowie. My Hero.
My sister cried for days and days when she found out. He was her biggest idle. I felt so bad for her.
I can't listen to his music anymore without getting a little teary eye his death was that bad
A true legend, my heroV 3 Comments
He killed himself. It just took him years. So incredibly sad. No wonder so many people think he's still alive. We all just miss him so much.
He had a bright future. He was great.
I am so surprised that Elvis didn’t make the top three? He was arguably the most influential music artist in history. The idea of Elvis being alone, battling addictions caused by depression was unbelievably sad. Others that deserve more recognition is Phil Hartman, Princess Diana and Whitney Houston.
Elvis sucked. glad his gone - Stardum
Tupac is probably the greatest rapper ever - he had an amazing way of sampling songs and was also a fantastic poet with his lyrics. He lives on in his music but I feel he would have had so much more to give had he lived on
The worst thing happened to the Rap history was Pac's death everything has changed in rap after that day admit it Eminem fans 2pac is the best and the realest
R.I.P Tupac, I wish so badly Tupac didn't get killed, imagine how much more great music he could of made if he didn't get killed! His Music lives on though through all the generations of rap lovers everybody knows about Tupac, his music & his talent. The best thing about Tupac that I loved though was that his music actually meant something he didn't just rap about guns, drugs & killing people. His lyrics were meaningful and He spoke up for the community & rapped about real life problems, I always said Tupac was a good guy & his heart was in the right place. I pray he is in Heaven R.I.P
If him and B.I.G. were still alive. Rap wouldn't be so hated now. RIP. - B1ueNewV 2 Comments
Probably one of the most tragic and saddest celebrities death ever. The young woman had an amazing voice and was probably an even more beautiful person. Truly got heartbroken from this. And what is also really sad is that her brother, who tried to stop the murderer had to watch his sister die before his very eyes.
One of the saddest deaths ever. She was beautiful and had an absolutely amazing voice. In my opinion, she's better than most singers nowadays. Rest In Peace, Christina. You shall always remain in our hearts.
This was a terrible tragedy that should have never happened. Imagine the career she had in front of her. But then that dream was destroyed by that piece of garbage. RIP Christina.
Screw the person who shot her. I hope he's burning in hell for such an evil deed.V 4 Comments
Why, why was she murdered, a sweet and pregnant woman. That is a death that will sure be remembered as one of the saddest ever for not only was shen pregnant but sweet over that. The murderer is just a disgusting and vile creature that should never be called human or even animal, because such murderers deserves nothing but the most painful punishment of hell.
Taken away too soon and she was pregnant. That idiotic Manson crook and his family had to take her away and her unborn. RIP. - B1ueNew
She was murdered by the Manson family while 8 and a half months pregnant. Why isn't she on here at #1?
And she was extremely sweet and would have gave them anything if they needed it. This pisses me off.V 2 Comments
I cried for almost a week when I found out he died on the show glee at first I thought that he busted left Ed the show but then I finished the episode and it said rip them I died inside he was and amazing actor and person rip Cory
The news of his death absolutely broke my heart. A great human being who had a human frailty. He tried so hard to get and stay well. One slip up after an earnest struggle caused him his life.
Probably the saddest moment in GLEE history. 'Make You Feel My Love' always gets me
Cory Monteith was a nice guy and he was a great actor and singer R.I. P buddy
Amy Jade Winehouse was the one who introduced our plastic pop generation to good wholesome jazz. She was ultimately killed by the people she loved most through mental abuse and introducing her to alcohol and heroin. She didn't deserve that, Amy will live on in our hearts forever and we miss her every day, for more information watch Asif Kapadia's documentary, AMY
I liked Amy Winehouse but don't use the word plastic pop generation. People can like whatever they want.
Every time I hear his amazing voice my heart twists. If I see him on You Tube, tears often slip. He was a great talent and it's a shame we will all miss out on what he might have graced us with in the future.
Definitely the saddest. I still cry watching anything about it
Poor poor Walt he had the best kid shows I loved Mickey Mouse when I was young.
I loved Disney when I was a little kid
Diana was the saddest everyone shared the love for her and it was not fair how she died I wish she were her this day I know I'm 11 and she died a long time before I was even born but I wish I could of meet her she was a rolemodle and now shes mine! Annabelle,11
What's worse is that she'll never even meet her own grandchildren!
I really miss Iwata he made some of my favorite games like Mario Zelda Kirby and smash
I have loved him since I was 13. Will love him forever. Died to young! Had so much more to give. The greatest of all time in my opinion!
I love him so much...
Died along Carrie Fisher on Christmas … sad
She died of plane crash - MeaganSaysHI
R.I.P Aaliyah! I Miss Aaliyah so much, I think she was totally underrated. She had such a smooth, soft voice. I love just kicking back & jamming to Aaliyah it's just so sad she died such a horrible, tragic death at such a young age of 22. She was beautiful, classy & talented. She wasn't trashy at all she was quite elegant & she had real star quality about her. She was also the best dancer ever!. I just wish she didn't die, but she lives on through her music
& we will always remember her & never forget her, Miss U baby girl xx R.I.P
So sad for real robbie rotten rip
This should be number one
One of the most underrated and most musically gifted artists of his time.
I heard his death when I was going to bed. I immediately broke into tears. I have to admit, that I have never watched any of his movies besides the Harry Potter ones. I cried all night. He said he was going to live to 80, but he didn't. I finally felt I was born too late. I have caught too many celebrity deaths in my 15 years life.
I honestly cried when I heard about Alan Rickman's death. He was an amazing actor, especially as Snape in the Harry Potter movies. So many people will forever remember him, and he will live forever in their hearts. RIP Alan Rickman.
I was at my school when I heard of his death, as a Harry Potter fan for my entire life, I was beyond devastated I started uncontrollably bawling when I got home, he will live on in our hearts, after all this time? Always.
He will forever live onV 2 Comments
This should be higher up. I still remember what happened that day. I was sitting on the couch reading this really sad book and at one point my mum is just like "You know Avicii died". And I just froze, I thought that maybe it was a fake news but then when I realized it was all real I hid my face behind the book and started crying. I still miss you Tim. I'll never forget you, your song have brightened my days and I have so many good memories while sining them.
He NEEDS to be on this list! - TheOneMan
Honestly one of the saddest deaths of this year.
He died on Hitler’s Birthday? Really? Why can’t he just like die on April 21st? - JoeBoiV 2 Comments

Sad how one death (Eddie Guerrero) can impact one man
RIP BENOIT - awesomehorror
Such an amazing singer with a great voice. It was such a sad day when she died. It was even more sad that it was due to drugs and happened the night before the Grammy's. Her music will live on.
She has the best voice of all time. After she died her daughter took her own life. Sad, sad story.
She is, and always will be, the best vocalist of her time
She had the best voice.I loved her music.It was so sad when she died.V 1 Comment
Great man...I'll admit I never paid attention to him before his death but as I learned more about him, I realized what a great and amazing man he is. If the world was ruled by men like him, this world would be like paradise on Earth.
The greatest. Rest in peace.
This death should be in the top 3 at least!
Amazing man, I don’t understand why colour matters..it’s very sick, whoever still thinks that race matters you are disgustingV 2 Comments

How could you say something so cruel about someone who died. I don't even know who she is and I don't care if you hate her...show some respect.
Just another idiot who fell from grace thank God
I think she's not the idiot here. How dare you insult the memory of someone who felt driven to take her own life! - The_Personage
Really her life was not peaceful... - zuni
She was the greast girl and always had humor. Although she managed to get JFK to cheat on his wife with her
She was a whore who died of a drug overdose

He was good. He was only 20. Very sad RIP. - B1ueNew
