Celebs Who Have Gone Broke Or Bankrupt!

broke celebs watermark(1)

It's an all too familiar Hollywood story…

Stars who make MILLIONS and then lose it all!

Some go broke after a bad business deal, like Kim Basinger. Others shell-out big bucks to ex-wives and child support bills, like Brendan Fraser. And some just plain over spend! Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em buy any more jewelry!

But for many on this list, their trip to the poor house didn't last forever! Some were able to climb out of the red and back into the black…leather seats of a luxury car!

lauryn hill starts prison sentence

Waaa waaa waaaa!

Lauryn Hill has turned herself into a Connecticut federal prison to serve her three month sentence after pleading guilty to three counts of tax evasion for forgetting to file a whopping $1.8 million in returns from 2005 to 2007.

The soulful singer reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury this morning for a minimum security stay in barracks-like housing.

Nope. Lauryn isn't getting

Lauryn Hill Thinks Reverse Racism Is 'Ridiculous!' Blames Jail Time On Historical Racism!

| Filed under: Legal MattersLauryn Hill

laurynhill

On the day before going to prison for three months for unpaid taxes, Lauryn Hill went on at great length in an open letter on Tumblr about racism and, in turn, reverse racism.

Here's what she had to say:

"The concept of reverse racism is flawed, if not absolutely ridiculous. Most, if not all of the negative responses from people of color toward white people, are reactions to the hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that they were shown by white people for centuries."

Lauryn went on to further question the legitimacy of reverse racism based on historical context:

lauryn hill neurotic society drag queens pride fiends girl men anti lgbt

Fresh off losing a battle against the IRS, Lauryn Hill is picking a new fight!

And we don't like it one bit!!

If the lyrics to her new track Neurotic Society are any indication, the singer/rapper extraordinaire blames the LGBT community for the degradation of civilization!!

Ugh!! We wish we were kidding!

In the song's opening verse, the former Fugees star negatively references "drag queens," "pride fiends," and "girl men."

She raps:

Mary J. Blige's Tax Woes QUADRUPLE To $3.4 Million!

| Filed under: Busted!Lauryn HillMary J. Blige

mary j blige tax lien millions

Whoa!

While it was first reported that Mary J. Blige owed a heaping $900,000 to the New Jersey state in taxes, we've come to learn that she actually owes an INSANE $3,426,255.43 in total between NJ and federal taxes!!!!!!

Believe it!

The Grammy winner ignored bills from the IRS in 2009 for $574,907.30, 2010 for $2,203,743.53, and 2011 for $647,604.60 AS WELL AS the initial $901,769.65 she needs to cough up to the Garden State.

Let us also not forget that she defaulted on a $2.2 million bank loan and the charity that is suing her for never paying back a $250,000 loan.

OUCH!

We'd advise her to break out that check book and fast, but something tells us not even an uber-successful songstress like Mary has that kind of cash!

Looks like Lauryn Hill could very well be getting a musically-inclined cell mate!

On the bright side, wouldn't they would make a GREAT singing duo??

Lauryn Hill Will NOT Serve Time In The Slammer, According To Former Fugees Member!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal MattersLauryn Hill

lauryn hill jail time fugees pras

Pras is a wise, logical man.

The former Fugees member is pretty confident that even though Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to 3 months of hard time, she probably won't have to serve it.

How did he come to this conclusion??

Pras explained:

"I doubt she's going to do three months. Listen, if Lindsay Lohan doesn't do any time than why would she do time?"

Good point!

Lauryn would NOT be the first celeb to be released from prison early!

Why should stars like Lindsay Lohan get off for their reckless run-ins with the law and not Lauryn??

Not to mention — while tax evasion is a MAJOR offense — this is Lauryn's first time in front of a judge and it was a completely non-violent charge.

We suppose we'll just have to wait and see how long the soul sista is forced to wear an orange jump suit.

But do YOU think Lauryn deserves three months of jail time??
