Celebrities Attacked By Blood Sucking Bedbugs

Bedbugs can be a common occurrence for celebrities, who do a lot of world traveling for both work and leisure. One of the biggest misnomers is that bedbugs only live in poor, dirty hotels. The truth is they can be just as common in a five star hotel as a dilapidated transient housing unit.

Here are a few celebrities who have recently had run-ins with bedbugs:

Howard Stern Attacked By Bedbugs

Howard Stern reported on his Sirius XM Radio show that he has been “scratching every minute,” since his New York apartment and limousine had been infested with the tiny nuisances.

Renee Zellweger & Bradley Cooper

Last year, the National Enquirer reported that then couple Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper had to throw out a mattress crawling with bedbugs. Cooper had been doing a lot of traveling, staying in various hotels, and figured he picked them up and brought them home (which is very easy to do)… Maybe they were nesting in those dreadlocks he grew for the film “Hit and Run.”

Lauren Hildebrandt

The pop singer, best known for her song “Boy Shorts,” was attacked by blood-thirsty bedbugs while sleeping in four star New York City hotels last year. She said, “I couldn’t sleep at night, because I kept thinking they were in my bed.”

Maya Rudolph Attacked By Bedbugs

A couple years back, Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph moved into their New York SoHo apartment only to find it filled with bedbugs. Rudolph, who had a baby at the time, began finding bedbug bites all over her and her family. The matter was resolved after pest control efforts… and a $450,000 lawsuit against the landlord.

Parks and Recreation actress, Aubrey Plaza, was filming in Seattle, WA last month when she had an unpleasant encounter with these tiny pests. The actress reports getting bit by them at a local hotel, which she did not name, and says “it was a nightmare.”




Bedbugs In Hand

The last several years we have been inundated with bedbug horror stories like this. Both local and national news stations, radio stations, and newspapers ran with stories that we were under attack! During that time a lot of pest control companies experienced an unexpected boom.

There is plenty of fear out there surrounding bedbugs. With the growing accounts of bedbugs in the US, the fear is warranted. Bed bugs are very difficult to control and spread very fast if not kept in check.

Even celebrities must deal with bedbugs too!
