As Thanksgiving approaches each of us are reflecting on those things that made each of us grateful this year. And while most are thankful for the seasonal bonus, family flying into town, or that extra special miracle that was delivered just on time, some of our favorite celebrities are just a tad bit more grateful this year. Think we’re kidding? Take for instance that messy court case your favorite singer experienced this year, or that mistress scandal that made headlines everywhere! Check out 15 celebrities that have just a little bit more to be grateful for this holiday season, and the obstacles they have overcome to make it there.

Chris Brown had a lot to be thankful for this season! One thing he should be especially excited about this holiday is his freedom. That’s right, Brown has managed to dodge a couple of run-ins with the law in 2013, including his last altercation with a “fan” outside of a Washington, D.C. night club. Not only did Brown leave the young man with a broken nose, but a number of scraps and bruises. This isn’t the first time Brown’s anger found him in front of a judge, but once again Breezy was released with a slap on the wrist. Count your blessings Chris, they may run out soon.
