Celebs who have gone broke: There is an old saying: “Easy Come, Easy Go.” Well, celebrities can definitely agree. Maybe it didn’t come that easily, but the quickly earned money can surely disappear as fast as it came. After earning dozens of millions during their careers, it is hard to imagine how in the world these famous people manage to lose their fortune. It seems that you need to have a special kind of talent to declare bankruptcy after obtaining that much money. You can probably guess the cause – bad management, a crisis in the world of finance, divorces, not paying taxes or just being greedy; the fact is solid – all these celebrities went bankrupt at least once.

Their stories can teach us lessons: every time you face financial problems, you can say something like: “This is nothing. If 50 Cent can lose all those millions and be just fine, why should I stress about 2,000$?” It can be a good stress reliever; don’t you think?
These celebrities prove that being rich and famous doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand. If you ever come to the point that you wish to be in their place, consider questioning yourself. They also have problems like we do, they make bad decisions, and face difficulties managing their money. Anyone can face money issues sometimes. You can’t avoid that, and if you have more money, more problems might emerge.
That’s another thought to keep you worriless. Why worry if it’s still gonna happen? Here are 12 celebrities who went from filthy rich to penniless:
11. Wesley Snipes
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.
