The former heavyweight champion of the world turned out to be a bit of a lightweight when it came to money matters.
The boxer owed $38.4 million (£19.57 million) to a series of creditors, the US's Inland Revenue and ex-wife Monica in 2004. Tyson's pet tigers accounted for £4,000 of his debt - part of a lifestyle that cost £200,000 a month.
First on this list of "A List" celebs is who???!!!
Please stop putting this stuff up, it's wasting space.
although interesting .this means nothing to the ordinary person. we will still be on our knees today fitting carpets in the real world.
so thats the luck of the showbizz merrygoround some win some lose.
next story...so sad.
Easy come, easy go.... if these people had to actually WORK for their money they may be better at paying their bills on time, As for Bill Roache suing for being called Boring, I can see why he lost the court cases twice, now he is Boringly Broke! Well at least no one can say the new love in his life (half his age) is after him for his money, she will probably end up having to keep him in his doteage.
No sympathy for any of the celebs who are broke, they are just self obsessed idiots who dont think of tomorrow.
These are well meaning people who where never taught about the life style that they were about to enter.
I feel sorry for them because they think the money tree will never die. I hope others will lean from these mistakes but as the bible says "EVERY WAY OF A MAN IS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES. STAY SAFE.
Only the media and idiots care for celebrities, bunch of **** deserve it.
Who the hell is Joe Swach? Never heard of him.
It's funny how many of these have been done for Child Molestation, Rape or being at a party where someone was murdered.
Then we have the ones who are guilty of other crimes here too.
Did this story start as something else?
"Paedos, Rapists and comedians with pools who have gone bankrupt".....
