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.
The 1980s were incredible for film, and Corey Haim was synonymous with the silver screen. Starting as a teen actor, Haim starred in high-grossing films like “Silver Bullet,” “The Lost Boys,” and “Lucas.” But, with great fame comes great pain.
At the height of his fame, Haim was troubled by persistent financial management and drug-related issues. Haim’s drug habits were a challenge, but his troubles started when his insurers sued him for failing to disclose his drug addiction. After a $375,000 loss, acting jobs got scarce for the actor, and in 1997, he filed for bankruptcy.
Just before he died, Haim had moved back in with his mother. After succumbing to pneumonia at only 38, he had nothing. His family sought help from fans to cover the funeral expenses, ending a sad story of a fall from grace.
