When The Checks Stop Coming in: “I Made Over $300 Million and Now I’m Broke”

- By Bossip Staff

This may be the worst when the checks stop coming in ever. Your boy Nic Cage is reportedly broke, although he has done over 50 movies, over two decades and currently makes an estimated $20 million minimum per film. Cage has sold several mansions across the country in an effort to quickly raise cash, but the IRS still says he owes $6 million! A few of the homes have been foreclosed on due to unpaid mortgage payments. Cage says his “Business manager” is to blame and is suing him. SMH. Poor thang.

    He’s not the only one plenty of Hollywood stars are broke or on the verge of getting broke.
    They don’t know how to manage their earnings = living like royalties, spending and renting instead of saving or owning.
    Now with this economy we can finally see

  • kerry

    You can make 300 mill and be broke over a 20-year period if you don’t manage it well. 300 mill, the IRS takes 145 mill of that in taxes. Manager takes 10-20%. He bought a bunch of houses, furnished them, had to pay to keep them up, had to pay taxes on each one. Plus whatever other expenses he had/has. D-bag.

  • white male

    @Haha, I think you are the dumb-ass because Nicolas Cage was a 17 yr old High School dropout.
    Antoine Walker is a College graduate.

    Haha, engage your brain before your mouth.
