Rick James was best known for his hit song "Super Freak," an apt description considering his arrest in 1991 for torturing and imprisoning a 24-year-old woman for days. Both James and his girlfriend Tanya Anne Hijazi were jailed on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, forced oral copulation, making terrorist threats and furnishing narcotics after they burned the victim with a crack pipe, coerced her into sexual asks and forced her to use cocaine. While out on bail, the two were accused of kidnapping a music executive and beating her. James was convicted and served two years in prison.
