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.
Billie Holiday was one of the most influential jazz vocalists of all time. The “Strange Fruit” singer was so popular that her autobiography was made into a film titled “Lady Sings the Blues.” Yet despite her fame, Holiday’s life was filled with trouble from her early life.
Raised by a single parent, Holiday had a difficult upbringing and, as a child, and was a victim of sexual assault. The pain and grief from her formative years caused grief for the young star. She subsequently found solace in drugs and alcohol. Yet, despite addiction, the artist experienced great success as a signed artist who was renowned both locally and overseas.
By the time she died from drug complications, Holiday had just $750 to her name. In 2000, her contributions to music were recognized as she was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
