2. Marion Jones
Olympic gold medalist and track athlete, Marion Jones is renowned for winning five medals in 2000. She was so popular that she used to demand $80,000 for one race. However, living a lavish lifestyle and being a known sports personality does not guarantee financial stability. Jones owned multiple Porsches, numerous mansions, and spent millions on her lavish lifestyle, while defending herself against doping allegations. She landed up in a terrible credit position, with her ‘dream home’ being foreclosed. In fact, she even sold the house that she purchased for her mom, in order to pay off some of her credit bills. This was not enough for her bad credit scores and she eventually filed for bankruptcy.
