Not a year goes by without thousands of celebrity legal troubles and travails, and 2013 was no exception.

While stars like Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, and Phil Robertson may have dominated celebrity news headlines, they didn't quite make the cut when it came to our most-viewed Celebrity Justice posts of 2013.

Running down our red carpet, here are the Top 10 celebrity legal situations we covered this past year:

Actress Lena Headey, best known for playing the icy Queen Cersei on "Game of Thrones," has agreed to use an anti-texting app while driving... as long as her ex-husband does the same.

The recently divorced actress was worried that her former husband, Peter Loughran, would be texting or surfing the Internet while driving with their 3-year-old son, reports TMZ. That's why the anti-texting app requirement was added to her divorce settlement.

Can a divorce settlement include a "no-texting-and-driving" edict?

The reality TV housewife wrapped up her divorce in about eight months, leaving her plenty of time to allegedly stir up rumors about her now ex-husband's sexual orientation, reports TMZ.

What's next for Williams now that her divorce is done?
