No celebrity is complete without a koala: Here’s everything you need to know about the latest trend

Does anyone remember back in 2012 when Liam and Harry from 1D thought they might have chlamydia after a koala peed on them in Australia?

Turns out koalas aren’t as innocent as they look, in fact, most of them carry the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia. Thankfully, the 1D boys were given the all clear and now celebrities can’t seem to get enough of the furry little critters. Check out all these stars who’ve gone koala krazy!
