9 Broke Celebrities Who Are Poorer Than You!
Lohan is the classic example of why childhood should rather be about learning, than blowing money!
Sedated in drugs, alcohol and fame, the child star ensured she spent all that she had on homes, condo's, expensive fashion statements and vacations. So much so that, today - jobless and aimless, she borrows money from people so as to pay rent!
#8 Mike Tyson!
Mike Tyson is a learning lesson in staying focused and not being greedy.
Tyson was just as known for his anger issues and crimes (Rape of an 18 year old) as much as he was known for his boxing. Once the richest boxer (over $300 million), Tyson today lives off his voice-over job! Thanks to really bad decision making, we guess!

#6 Chris Tucker!
Famous Stand-Up Comedian and Rush Hour actor Chris Tucker made millions in his gig alongside Jackie Chan, only to blow it all away on legal aid!
Tucker, pulled out for his pending $14 million tax payment, lost all his earnings in 2014. Bad hiring of his financial team, we guess!
#5 Bill Cosby!
Famous comedian Bill Cosby lost all his hard earned money when claims of him having sexually assaulted women, started surfacing!
The 60's-70's house hold name and Grammy Award winner was left with nothing but a slew of insults and hopelessness!
#4 OJ Simpson!
What happens when athletes lose focus? They either lose their jobs, or their mind. With OJ Simpson, it was only worse!
A football player and actor, Simpson was arrested for his wife's murder and put on trial. Released in 1995, the man had to pay over $33.5 million to his wife's family. This burned a hole in his pocket so deep that it was impossible to recover, pushing him back into the crime streets!
#3 John Cleese
Founding member of groundbreaking British sketch troupe Monty Python, Cleese is a popular comic legend. However, the the troupe broke up and John Cleese found himself doing pretty well as a writer and solo performer in several films.
All went fine and he was rolling in moolah, untill his slew of ex-wives made him shell out more money than he would make. Who knew divorces could be this ugly!
#2 Allen Iverson!
Having earned over $200 million during his career, Iverson will shock you with his sheer poverty today!
A classic example of 'why it is important to be grounded', Iverson blew money like paper. $50K visits to strip clubs, expensive homes, one messy divorce took all that made him the stud that he was. Today, at 41, he yet waits patiently for the few million dollars from a Reebok Trust Fund. So much for being an NBA Legend!
#1 50 Cent
Who knew this one would take his name so seriously!
In 2015, 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy, claiming a series of poor financial decision had drained him of the millions of dollars he had made during his recording career. When a judge asked him about the hoard of money he was constantly found posting on his social media, he claimed it was merely for maintaing a certain image of himself. He was fined and ordered to pay his back debtors and bank notes, leaving him virtually penniless.
