While many of us assume that all wealthy people lived charmed lives, that isn’t always the case. For some people, money comes with problems. We have a list of 12 famous heirs and heiresses who were born exceedingly wealthy, but who suffered some serious tragedies that have long since been forgotten.
12. Casey Johnson
Casey Johnson was the heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune and a friend of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. While her family is worth billions (her dad Woody owns the New York Jets), she was living in squalor in a house on Mulholland Drive that had no electricity and was infested with rats after her parents had cut her off in an attempt to force her to go to rehab and deal with her drug and alcohol issues. In January 2010, she was found dead in her apartment by her maid days after she passed. Casey, a diabetic, died of “diabetic ketoacidosis,” a condition caused by a shortage of insulin. She was just 30 years old.
