From Rich To Penniless: 12 celebs who have gone broke in the last 10 years… You’ll be surprised! (With Pictures)
11. Wesley Snipes
If you love classic action movies, don’t read this one.
Wesley Snipes, the all-time favorite action movie performer from the 90s had tremendous success with many blockbusters. All was perfect for Mr. Snipes, except for one tiny problem – he bailed from tax obligations for more than six years. That’s the kind of trouble that no amount of martial arts will get you out of.
Unfortunately for all of us Snipes fans, that was not his only problem. He didn’t care about money and the way he spent it, so the accumulated debt grew bigger than his assets. That’s why he had to go to prison in 2010. Over an extended period of time, he was nowhere to be seen, and now that he’s back, he can’t get any more lucrative roles in blockbusters. Sorry Mr. Snipes, your days as an action hero are gone.
