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.

Warren Sapp –
He earned millions upon millions and is still owing $6.5 million to the IRS. And he has a job on NFL Network too!

Vince Young – He was on Twitter saying he needed a job because all of those $5,000 Cheesecake Factory

Allen Iverson – He’s losing $300K a month and making 1/5th that much.

Lauryn Hill – She’s heading to the clink for refusing to pay taxes…smh.

Young Buck –
He can’t even hardly afford his own damn name.

Terrell Owens – He got cut by his minor league team and can barely pay all that child support.

    Evander Holyfield –
    He also has damn near a baker’s dozen of kids and he had his house foreclosed because he can’t deal with all of that.

    Beanie Sigel – He’s also going to clinktown for not paying off his taxes. Not gangsta, Beans.

    Chris Tucker –
    He is on tour right now to pay the IRS and get over his debt to the government. Maybe now he’s going to actually be not so broke anymore.

      Thanks so much for including how and why these celebs went broke. So very informative. Great job. Other sites just show a pic and a poorly spelled, poorly thought out caption underneath. But not you guys.
