Few celebrities are good with their money, and most spend shocking amounts on fast cars and luxury mansions.
However, there are quite a few who squandered their fortune in such an outrageous way they ended up broke or even behind bars for their unpaid taxes.
10 Pamela Anderson
The former Baywatch star has a knack for always being in the news. What she lacks is a knack for spending her money wisely.
Back in the 1990s, when Pamela Anderson regularly flaunted her Playboy’s unique curves, she had amassed a fortune of more than $35 million.
However, she found herself broke, like really broke, so she moved into a trailer park with her two kids. Yet, with her considerable physical assets, she managed to get back on track and out of the trailer park.
9 Mickey Rourke
The star of the sizzling 9½ Weeks and Angel Heart had carved himself a place among the Hollywood elite in the 1980s.
He certainly had the physique for the big screen, many putting him on par with Marlon Brando or James Dean. He lost the looks following years of boxing and botched plastic surgery, as well as his fortune.
Well, he is famous for once buying six Cadillacs to gift them to his friends. Things got so bad he disappeared from Hollywood and would have spent the rest of his life in the gutters had it not been for his amazing friends who helped him put his career back on track. Sort of, at least.
8 Johnny Depp
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise brought Johnny Depp a vast treasure chest each time a new movie came out, over $30 million.
Not to mention the impressive list of other great films he’s made. However, Depp spent like crazy on villas and cars. On top of that, he had an expensive drug habit and a passion for fine wines.
Reality came crashing down on him in 2017 when his financial manager told him he had accumulated massive debt. The actor was adamant; it wasn’t his fault and filed a lawsuit against his economic team.
Following the scandal around the messy divorce from Amber Heard, it is doubtful that Depp will make up enough money to get back in the black anytime soon.
7 Lisa Marie Presley
Daddy’s little princess had a very pampered childhood. Elvis could not refuse anything to his beautiful girl. On his untimely death, the King left Lisa Marie a considerable fortune, upwards of $100 million.
Apparently, not enough. At one point, Lisa Marie Presley was so bad into debt her mother had to sell her own house to support her. Fortunately, she still has royalties to collect; otherwise, she’d been in a bad place by now.
