Don’t get it twisted – just because you see your favorite celeb on TV or gracing the red carpet at an awards show, doesn’t mean they’re more well off than you are. In terms of money, you may be surprised to learn that you have a bigger bank account than they do. For whatever reason, some celebs haven’t quite invested in the future. Those who idolize celebrity figures automatically assume all of them are rich, but that’s not always the case. Some celebrities are perfect examples of why you should invest and save your money, no matter how fat your checks are. Excessive partying, poor financial decisions and legal issues can not only derail a celebrity’s career, but those decisions can prove costly when it comes to income and net worth, too. Here are some celebs that may not have as much money as you:
-Due to back taxes and excessive partying, Lindsay Lohan only has $500,000 to her name.
-Reality TV couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt once had a net worth of $10 million, butnow possess $20,000.
– Chris Tucker, once the highest paid actor in Hollywood, is $11.5 million in debt.
– Sinbad is also in the negatives, left with a net worth of $-11.5 million.
-Kate Gosselin, who’s paying the price for overspending, only has $50,000 left.
-Comedian Andy Dick only has $5,000 left, for multiple reasons including lawyer fees and inconsistent work.
-Dennis Rodman was once one of the NBA’s hottest stars, but he’s left with a debt of $1 million.
-Former SNL personality Norm MacDonald sure has a recognizable voice, yet a gambling problem has resulted in a bank account of just $500,000.
