It is safe to say that the last 12 months have been memorable for the residents of Tinsel town. For some stars, this year was all about reinventing themselves and sorting out their public image. So before we head into the new year, let's look back at the five biggest celebrity events of 2015.

Charlie Sheen's HIV announcement

In November, the 50-year-old Hollywood actor confirmed he was living with the virus.

In an appearance on NBC's Today show, the former Two And A Half Men star, revealed he was diagnosed with the infection "roughly four years ago" and had been held ransom by people he once considered friends.

The former Olympian, who is the step-parent of Kim Kardashian, provoked a social media buzz with the cover story which featured the headline "Call Me Caitlyn" and showed her wearing a cream corseted bodysuit.

She celebrated her new life months after coming out publicly in an interview with Diane Sawyer.

Death of Bobbi Kristina Brown

In July, the surviving child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown passed away at Atlanta's Peachtree Christian Hospice, almost six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub.

The 22-year-old died three years after her mother's life was also cut short in 2012, when the I Will Always Love You singer drowned in a bathtub at the Beverley Hills hotel.
