15 Bankrupt Celebs


Wayne Newton

You may know him as Mr. Las Vegas or Mr. Entertainment, Wayne Newton has been around and performing for over 50 years in Las Vegas. Newton was quite the big spender back in the day. He had penguins, two-fingered sloths, hundreds of lovebirds, a yacht, plane, 36-Acre ranch, and tons more. In 1992, he was up to his ears in $20 million of debt and filed for bankruptcy.



Janice Dickinson

Janice Dickinson is best known for being the brassy judge on the hit reality show America’s Next Top Model and later on her own reality show, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. Dickinson allegedly owes City National Bank over $300,000 for checking overdrafts and the bank is willing to settle for $100,000. Say what? The bank decided that it was going to be difficult to get the money back and set up payment plans over the next 3 years.
