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.
Mickey Rooney is one of the most prolific actors of all time, whose legacy is almost unmatched. Unlike most actors, Rooney could brag that he had a 90-year-long career where he starred in over 300 films. But, despite his illustrious career, the “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” star just couldn’t keep money in his pocket.
Throughout his career, Rooney was called “the original Hollywood train wreck,” and his story was simply a tragedy. Struggling with alcoholism and an addiction to prescription pills, Rooney’s personal and public life was action-packed. Between instances of mismanagement and a total of 8 divorces, Rooney’s finances suffered heavily.
When he died of natural causes in 2014, reports claimed that his family members had drained his finances. In a classic Hollywood disaster story, after a long and successful career, Rooney left behind medical bills and back taxes. When his $18,000 estate was settled, the remainder was not even enough for a public funeral. Rooney’s family had to seek public assistance to lay him to rest. So unfortunate.
