Celebrities Who Went Broke In 2012

If you listen to our re-elected president Mr. Barack Obama, we are about to enter into a golden age where the recession is nothing but a shadow in our rear view mirrors. But for some, the year wasn’t so bountiful as a bevy of celebrities had to beg for more money as they are now unmistakably broke as hell.

Saving is caring.
