While you might think that only so-called "regular" people experience money issues and difficulty with spending habits and paying their bills, celebrities, too, can face serious financial pressures, sometimes even to the point of being forced to file for bankruptcy. Though debt to the point of bankruptcy is undoubtedly an overwhelming stressor, some celebrities who faced bankruptcy, but came out on top, were able to find a way to make it through. For the most part, this isn't one of those cases where celebrities' money struggles are just like anyone else's, unless you also own a multitude of homes, valuable works of art, designer clothing, and fancy cars, or employ a staff. Yet living on a budget and recognizing — and breaking — potentially devastating spending habits can be difficult no matter how much money you have, especially if you have quite a bit more than you're used to or it seems as though there's a never-ending supply.
Some celebrities had well-publicized financial troubles, some of which led to bankruptcy, while others faced challenges before their careers — and fame — really took off. These celebrities may have struggled with financial issues in the past, but they came out of the situations ready and willing to move forward.
