Jail. Prison. The clink. The slammer. Lockup. The brig.

Up the river. The pen. The pound. The black hole.

Call it whatever you'd like, but for the 19 celebrities listed below, the Big House has simply been called home at least once in their lives ...

Lil Wayne
The possession of drugs and weapons on his tour bus put Lil Wayne in jail for five months. That's fewer months than children the rapper has out of wedlock.

With Teresa Giudice having been sentenced to over a year in prison last week, we thought we'd try to comfort The Real Housewives of New Jersey star by at least proving that she isn't alone.

Plenty of famous people have spent time behind bars, for offenses that range from drunk driving to weapons possession; and for terms that lasted from two years to, well, three hours.

Who devoted a good portion of their lives to watching their back? Which star was without her freedom for a shorter duration than it would take to watch The Wolf of Wall Street?

Lil Wayne stomped on an American flag over the weekend.

He's filming a music video for "God Bless Amerika" in his hometown of New Orleans, and it all started off harmlessly enough, with Weezy rapping in front of the flag.

Old Glory is then released to the ground - already a big no-no, as we learned on Flag Day - at which point Wayne continues to rap, while stomping on it.

Check out the footage from Wayne's video shoot below:

The lyrics, believe it or not, are just as controversial, which isn't shocking from a man who infamously rapped about beating up a p---y like Emmett Till.

"My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika," raps the lightning rod that is Tunechi.

It's his constitutional right to do this, of course ... but that doesn't mean people will line up to defend him. We're anticipating quite the opposite in fact.

What's your take on the situation?

Lil Wayne is reportedly in critical condition after suffering more seizures. The rapper was rushed to the ICU at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

The rapper was hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures, but was released Wednesday after he stabilized. Today, he did not stabilize.

Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, and placed in restraints in the ICU because he was shaking uncontrollably. He was then placed in an induced coma.

Earlier this afternoon, he was breathing through tubes.

Getting ejected from the Heat game is the least of Lil Wayne's problems this week.

His remix of Future's "Karate Chop," which features Weezy making a degrading reference to Emmett Till, has been pulled by Epic Records.

Many were up in arms over the lyrics about Till, an African-American teen from Chicago who was beaten and shot to death in the South in 1955.

"We regret the unauthorized remix version of Future's `Karate Chop,' which leaked online and contained hurtful lyrics," the label said in a statement.

Redundantly named rapper Rich Rick claims Lil Wayne ripped off his property, the beat behind Weezy's moving, tender single "How to Love."

Now he's out for some legal payback.

Rick filed a lawsuit earlier this week claiming he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2009 - including the beat now appearing on LW's "How to Love" - from a group of rap producers called Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims that the Boyz went on to pitch the beat to Lil Wayne in 2010, and that Weezy acquired it in exchange for a cut of the royalties.

The song's a hit and Rick's suing both Weezy and the Drummer Boyz, plus others involved, for everything from breach of contract to fraud.

Weezy has also been accused of stealing "Bedrock."

According to reports, woman alleges that she was held against her will and sexually assaulted during a recording session for Lil Wayne back in January.

Weezy personally was NOT involved. The man don't need to assault no one. He makes love and produces illegitimate kids like they were hip-hop hits.

Anyway. The target of the investigation is music producer Noel "Detail" Fisher, who owns the Canyon Country, Calif., house where it went down.

Ahhhhhhhm Baaaaaaaack

I waddn't even there ...

According to sources, Detail had people over to the house (also a recording studio) for a Pre-Grammy party during which Lil Wayne was laying down some tracks.

The alleged victim was a female catering assistant who was hired for the party.

Cops are looking into allegations that Detail held her against her will overnight and sexually assaulted her, after which she managed to escape and alert police.

She was questioned in the hospital, where she also submitted to a rape test. The investigation is still ongoing and, again, Lil Wayne is NOT in the report.

Lil Wayne has four kids. That we know of. Of course four, at least three have different mothers. The mother of the second child has never been established.

In any case, the ranks of Weezy's brood may be growing yet again! A Louisiana woman claims he fathered her eight-year-old grandson and wants a DNA test.

She'd have gotten it long ago had it not been for Hurricane Katrina. Really.

T-Pain (left) has nothing to do with this article.

Ever since the baby was born in 2002, the boy's family "tried multiple times to get a paternity test" from the troubled rapper, only to face unforeseen delays.

Such as a massive natural disaster. The New Orleans court system moved at a snail's pace anyway, but after Katrina, the case's records were all destroyed.

Proceedings were therefore delayed by a matter of years. Finally, this year, the court ordered Lil Wayne to submit to a DNA test. He was in jail at the time.

Now that he's been sprung, Wayne has until early-December to take it. Lightning (or hurricanes, more accurately) aren't likely to strike twice, fortunately.

Few can match Lil' Wayne in terms of pure mug shot production.

Snoop Dogg and Riley Giles. That's it. Kumari Fulbright may have the best single celebrity mug shot, but she's not as prolific as the aforementioned duo.

But that's another debate. Back to Lil' Wayne's most recent run-in with the law, which occurred last night and produced this pair of mug shot gems...

Law enforcement officials say that Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., was arrested near Yuma, Arizona last night on three felony counts:

  1. Possession of dangerous drugs
  2. Possession of narcotics
  3. Possession of drug paraphernalia

No clue how exactly #1 differs from #2, but TMZ says the Drug Enforcement Agency was involved in the troubled rapper's arrest. That means it's not a Lil' Problem - which we hear is the name of Wayne's cousin.

The rapper is in the custody of the Yuma County Sheriff's Department, where he'll be held pending his arraignment at 9:00 a.m. PST.

UPDATE: Lil' Wayne has been hit with some big charges - namely possession of cocaine, ecstasy and drug paraphernalia. He could be in jail a lil' while.

Wayne was arrested with two others who have been charged with possession of marijuana. Cops say they found 105 grams of pot, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy on his tour bus - after it stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Police also found $22,000 in cash and a 40-caliber pistol, but Lil Wayne evidently does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in Florida. They are checking to see if that carries over to Arizona. A judge set his bond at $10,000.

Lil Wayne was also arrested in Idaho last year for possession of drugs.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
