Being a celebrity sounds pretty fantastic. You get to have a glamorous job with red-carpet premieres, photo shoots and fancy meals at all the hottest restaurants. And even though you’re rich, you get a ton of free swag. But somehow, a number of celebs have managed to fail at the “rich” part. Here are 10 famous people who achieved fame but haven’t quite mastered “fortune.”
10. Scott Stapp
We can’t help but feel bad for Creed frontman Scott Stapp, who was one of the biggest rock stars in the early 2000s, singing hits like “Higher” and “Arms Wide Open.” But earlier this year, it was revealed that Scott, who suffers from bipolar disorder, was penniless and in a state of drug-induced psychosis. His wife Jaclyn finally filed for divorce after he’d had a lot of drug relapses. Luckily, he’s on the road to recovery: he and Jaclyn are both appearing on VH1’s reality show Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn premiering October 7th.
