Lance Armstrong is the name on everyone's lips.

After years of controversy, the cycling champ announced Thursday night that he would drop his fight against the USADA's doping charges. As a result, the agency is threatening to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and ban him from competition for life.

There is a question, though, whether the USADA — the official anti-doping agency for Olympic, Pan American and Paralympic sports in the U.S. — has authority on his case. International agencies, such as the International Cycling Union, may have to weigh in before Armstrong would face the prospect of losing his lifetime of victories.

As decorated athlete awaits his fate, Armstrong's doping drama has become the talk of the Twitterverse.

So what are celebrities scandal that's looming over the most celebrate cyclist of all time?
