Nick Lachey got the boot from a football game.

Nick Lachey has been a longtime Cincinnati Bengals fan. However, his loyalty to his home team got him into a little trouble on December 2 at their game against the San Diego Chargers. Apparently, Nick's aggressive trash-talking led to his removal from the stadium. "Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals," he tweeted shortly after security removed him from the building.

The former 98 degrees crooner wasn't deterred by the incident, and tweeted after the Bengals won, "Bengals win again. i'd talk trash to everyone in SD, but what's the point? You already had me kicked out of the stadium and you still lost."

After years of watching Jack Nicholson get angry while watching the Los Angeles Lakers, we shouldn't be surprised when celebs behave badly at sporting events. Here are a few other famous faces that have been involved in ugly incidents while watching a game.

Eric Stonestreet

The "Modern Family" star was asked to leave his seat at a Los Angeles Dodgers game in September after he got into it with an opposing fan. According to the report, Eric took offense when a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals started heckling a player on the Dodgers. No punches were thrown, but Eric was escorted out of the area by security. After news of the incident broke, the star confirmed that he was allowed to remain in the stadium despite the altercation. He explained things on Twitter, writing "i did NOT get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. did i get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? yes. yes i sure did."

Lady Gaga

The singer doesn't seem like your typical sports fan, and maybe that's why she got into some hot water while watching a New York Mets game in 2010. Not only did she wear skimpy clothes to her seat in the front row, but she also flipped off a couple of photographers. As a result of the incident, the "Poker Face" singer was relocated to Jerry Seinfeld's private suite. The comedian didn't seem too happy about that when he found out about it. During a radio interview, the noted Mets fan called Gaga a "jerk" and voiced his anger over the whole ordeal.

LaLa Vazquez

In 2009, the reality TV star was removed from a basketball game between the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks. LaLa, whose future husband Carmelo Anthony played for the Nuggets at the time, said that racial insults directed at her were responsible for the incident. "What happened on Monday night with the racial slurs / threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was completely unacceptable," she said in a statement. Video of the fight went viral, but LaLa said the footage simply shows her defending herself.
