12 celebrities who went bankrupt

Apparently being rich, famous and successful isn't always that easy. Bad investments, drug habits, yacht maintenance...these things can add up. Many athletes, entrepreneurs, musicians and actors have found themselves buried in debt and forced to declare bankruptcy. Some recovered to once again become wealthy and powerful...while for others, bankruptcy was just another element in their post-fame collapses.
