Celebrity life can be very rewarding financially and economically but on the flip side, we have embarrassed celebrities. Celebrity life provides the wealth and visibility for influence, power and luxury-class status. On the flip side, it can also be very dangerous leading to a status of embarrassed celebrities. One wrong decision can bring a man stumbling downwards rapidly. Once an embarrassed celebrity starts stumbling, he is prone to substance abuse which can lead to mental illnesses and other health issues. Finances also take a significant hit because when you are mentally and physically ill, many are better positioned to take advantage of you. It is important for people to know their limits, maximize their health and avoid financial attacks that come in several forms. Leaders and celebrities should avoid falling from powerhouse to nonentity. This is something the Kardashian family has embodied thus far. Here’s a list of 5 embarrassed celebrities that fell from very high net-worth to “poor” standings.
1. Mike Tyson
Ever since his time in prison on charges of Rape, Tyson’s fortune has declined rapidly from over $300 million in his prime days to less than $1 million today.
2. Maia Campbell
Drugs completely destroyed her. She is worth much less than $10,000 and very dependent on begging to fuel her drug habits. Maia has been in and out of rehab since her popular show “In the house” with LL Cool J ended years ago.
3. Lindsay Lohan
In 2012, the IRS seized control of Lohan’s reserves to pay off over $200,000 in back taxes. She has been in fewer roles since then. Having been through substance abuse, rehab and further debts.
4. Chris Tucker
Tucker is currently $11.5 million in the negative as a result of foreclosed homes and several years of back taxes, according to The Motley Fool.
5. Britney Spears
She went from being the #1 pop icon of the 1990s to an unknown in the 2000s due to drug addictions that destroyed her career. This also significantly affected her net worth with no company willing to sign her on for endorsements or opportunities.
