Celebrities seem to have everything, fame, money and a charming lifestyle. Of course, the most important thing is that they can call Hollywood home. For most fans, the lives of these celebrities are so interesting because they can do whatever they want and still look beautiful. But although the grass always looks greener to celebrities, the sad reality is that they are still human. With all the charm, flashlights and record-breaking salary, things will still fall apart.
Just like the rest of us, famous people made costly mistakes that caused them to lose their hard-won wealth. It just shows us that Stellar may also suffer from debt, drugs and doom.
Judy Garland is best known as Dorothy from the timeless classic, “The Wizard of Oz,” and she was a fascinating personality for millions. Her incredible talents on the silver screen and her sweet vocals were beloved, and to many, her star shone brightly. However, behind the scenes, Garland was a victim of embezzlement after her managers mismanaged her cash.
While her success on screen made her millions, Garland suffered from financial woes and a struggle with drug addiction. By the time she died from an overdose at 47, Garland had sold off her fancy Bel-Air home for cheap and even had $4 million in unpaid debts. Her sudden death caused much controversy since even her inheritances could not be fulfilled.
In a wonderful turn of events, Liza Minelli, Garland’s daughter, was able to settle her debts. With the assistance of Frank Sinatra, a family friend, Garland’s legacy was kept intact. In the end, she was remembered fondly.
