7 Celebrities Who Can’t Afford The High Life
One thing that celebrities like about fame is the high life. So much so that when they lose their fortune, they typically can’t let go of the lifestyle. Here are 7 celebrities who can longer afford the high life, but can’t accept living within their means:
7. Jon and Kate Gosselin
Jon and Kate Gosselin enjoyed the fame and fortune that came with having their own reality show. Sources say that they earned up to $75,000 per episode. When they broke up, they spent their time fighting over their money. Because of Jon, the show, which was the family’s bread and butter, was canceled not long after Kate filed for divorce and both of them were forced to find new ways to make money. Kate has arguably done better than Jon (who is reportedly broke and says that he is “too famous” for a real job) because she knows she needs to work to afford their $1.2 million house, as well as provide for the eight kids, but neither one of them can really afford it anymore.
6. Lindsay Lohan
For years now, we’ve been hearing about Lindsay Lohan’s financial problems. Ever since her legal problems began, the lucrative acting jobs she’d come to enjoy stopped coming in. In 2011, she told a judge that she couldn’t afford the private court-ordered psychological treatment because her Screen Actors Guild coverage had run out due to a lack of acting gigs. In 2012, she owed close to $300,000 in back taxes for 2009, 2010 and 2011 and the IRS seized all of her bank accounts in an attempt to secure payment. In 2014, it was reported that Lindsay was broke yet again despite getting paid a reported $2 million by Oprah to do a docu-series. In spite of her financial problems, she has never stopped living the high life. Even though she has no acting projects to fund her exploits, she’s often spotted dining out, vacationing on yachts and partying all over the world. Many believe that she has wealthy benefactors that fund her lifestyle since she obviously cannot afford it.
