I bet most people have had conversations and even arguments about whether or not he was or not. As for people who beat and rape women, yeah it's terrible. But they aren't any worse then the millions that do it who aren't famous. If it's a different situation like severely beaten or nearly it not actually killed, then it's a whole different ball park.
All the other things you mentioned are especially unimportant to me. If somethings like Michael Jackson being a child molester or Suge Knight were ever confirmed to be the truth then of course I wouldn't listen to them.
If the behavior bothers me that much, it may keep me from enjoying the artist's music. It may not. There are no hard and fast rules for me I also need to take into consideration that I was not present at the time these incidents occured, so I'm not really aware of exactly what happened.
You know, "two sides to every story". Morality and ethics are completely subjective. For me, I don't condone spousal, animal or child abuse. I have issues with murder. And racism, and such blind hatred in any form, makes my skin crawl. Some seem to forget that musicians are human beings themselves and they need to be taken off of the pedestals that we sometimes, as fans, put them on. But just as we, as fans, have to take this into account, artists need to consider that their actions away from the stage and the studio can possibly ripple poorly through their fan base.
While the legal system may give them a free pass on their criminal activity the fans are not always as forgiving. We are not entitled to squeaky clean behavior from our favorite musicians and they are not entitled to our affection and financial support unconditionally. It works both ways.
As a professional classical musician I have had to come to terms with this. For example Wagner was an anti-semite as was Strauss - terrible people, yet both wrote great music. I once asked a Rabbi how I could make peace with this issue as it really bothered me. He said something to the effect that the great music these people wrote was inspired by G--, and that this greatness could come from someone who was so full of hate was proof that goodness surpasses evil.
So it's a case of setting the doer apart from the deed. I'm frankly disappointed when a favorite artist of mine does NOT commit an ethical wrong or a crime, but hey, that's Punch. Seriously, it really depends on the handling of said situation, Costello did everything he could short of making the cover of "Get Happy" a picture of himself holding up a sign saying," Hey I really DO like Black People"..
I have always been embarrassed by knowledge of that incident, but Ive kept aware of the different ways he has tried to clean up his side of the street on the matter.
It's hard to imagine that someone with such an affinity for soul music could in his secret heart be a racist, but that's what I'd like to think. Yeah, I believe you should come to the conclusion that the musician's life isn't going to be perfect. Also, as a fan, not everything the musician does is explainable. Take Mike Williams of Eyehategod one of my favorite bands.
I can't explain why he took heroin for over 10 years. It really depends on the circumstance for me. Like with the Elvis Costello thing, that makes me mad, as does the Gary Glitter thing.
I could hold it against them I guess I do in a way , but it's not going to make me stop liking them. The Phil Spector thing on the other hand, this probably sounds messed up but it kind of makes him more interesting to me, it adds a new dimension to his persona. Also George Michael for example, I'm not a big fan or anything, but the fact that he whipped out whatever in a bathroom is actually pretty funny to me and it makes him a little cooler in my book.
Same goes for Snoop Dogg. I'm glad he got arrested for pot possession. I think it would be pretty hypocritical if he never did. I'm not sure if suicide is considered a crime in this instance, and I know this is going to sound pretty terrible, but I'm actually kind of glad that Elliott Smith killed himself. I'm a huge fan of his, and I'd like to have had the opportunity to see him play or talk to him, but he sang really sad songs, talked about how depressed he was and wanting to die etc.
I guess this isn't so much about musicians I like, aside from Phil Spector and Elliott Smith, but you get what I'm trying to say here. I wish I could think of more examples of musicians I liked and their lives of crime. Frankly with me it depends on the type of crime and the severity.

The remaining numbers of tribes were forcibly removed from their homelands, pushed further to join larger tribes like those in the northern Algonquian speaking nations. Remaining tribes were sold into slavery in the Caribbean Islands. According to officials at the National Museum of the American Indian, there is no living Nacotchtank lineage left.
Their numbers were decimated, and survivors were adopted into the Piscataway people, losing their original identity and descendancy. Given the romanticized story of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas in this region, the original people experienced the ravages brought on by the settler-colonial introduction of diseases, encroachment and forced removal, and erasure of traditional and cultural survival of the tribes.
