They say that making money isn’t the hard part, its keeping a hold of your money. Celebrities know this to be true more than anyone else in the world. They are a part of a fickle profession that sometimes respects you and treats you like a God, but can just as easily ignore you and forget about you entirely. A lot of celebrities have found it extremely hard to maintain their wealth and status, and end up losing everything after a period of time. Here is a list of 10 extremely famous celebrities who have had to face bankruptcy.

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson is one of the most famous pot enthusiasts on the planet and has been doing extremely well for some time now. The only time he experienced the depths of financial depravity is during 1990 and 1993. Apparently the country singer owed the IRS 16 million dollars during this time and was unable to pay them because he was completely bankrupt. This is when he made the album “The IRS Tapes: Who’ll Buy My Memories”. and managed to fight his way out of bankruptcy.

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan began her career better than most people would have ever expected. Unfortunately she got involved pretty deep in the world of partying and drugs and never managed to come out of it. Apart from becoming a public spectacle, she also went bankrupt in 2012 and has been broke since.
