Just because money and fame flow at one point in someone’s life, does not mean that it will throughout. We are talking about celebrities who ended up homeless even after all of their fame and money that they received and we are absolutely amazed by this, but why? Nobody is immune to poverty because money is so precarious. Those who may not understand this will be shocked to know that money doesn’t grow on trees and even those avenues in which it was earned in the past, may cease to exist for everyone from time to time. Also, there may be other circumstances that have contributed to being homeless and so we can only hope that some of these celebrities were able to find their way back to some suitable shelter.
I, myself, have never been homeless but I have known people who definitely do not have a home a simply manage their lives in something mobile (a car) or otherwise. Even so, there’s not much that anyone can do for them because we all have our own boats to keep afloat and just because I haven’t been homeless, doesn’t mean that I haven’t had to skip a meal from time to time… The hardest part is when you don’t where your next paycheck is coming from because we all need to work to survive and this constant struggle is what keeps the world moving in the fast paced speed that it is and we all have different ways of dealing with it. Some of us stay at jobs that we hate for years and even a lifetime in order to combat homelessness. Others find it freeing to be without such a job but they continuously struggle for their next paycheck.
With all that said, let’s find out what happened to these celebs who found themselves homeless after their work in the business:
This musician was one of the biggest names in the business because he formed an amazing funk band called ‘Sly & The Family Stone’. Also, when he was at the height of his fame, he owned multiple homes in the United States and he even had one in Napa Valley! So, what happened to this legendary funk musician?
He has been living his days out in a van on the streets of Los Angeles due to making some poor financial choices. He has also been dealing with his history of drug abuse and so all of this combined has left him without any assets to call home.
Despite the success of his music and the enormous amount of money that it brings, life can be difficult and even more so when you have all of this money and assets to deal with! For him, it was all too much and now he says that he’s much happier! He even has time to work on his music again and be creative. He also says that he’s not interested in having a stationary home anymore and that he actually prefers to move around and live the way that he currently does. We can only assume that for some people it is more difficult to have lots of money than it is to be homeless!
