Thanks to a spiritual awakening moment, some celebrities who have dealt with mental health issues or legal problems manage to walk away from their dark history.

AceShowbiz - Speaking of a dark past, none of the above mentioned stars hit the bottom as low as Mike Tyson. Once an undisputed world heavyweight champion, he brought shame to his name with drug addiction, rape allegations and mismanaged finance that led him to declare bankruptcy, in addition to the infamous ear-biting incident during a fight with Evander Holyfield.

But the retired boxer turned his life around by converting to Islam while serving his six-year sentence in prison for the rape of an 18-year-old girl. He adopted the Muslim name Malik Abdul Aziz, while some others reported this name as Malik Shabazz. "I'm very grateful to be a Muslim. Allah doesn't need me, I need Allah," he told Fox News about his religion, adding that he's constantly trying to be humble.
