This could explain why his memorial service was so inexpensive.
Sources who advised the music icon are revealing that the late legend almost always turned down offers to sell or license his music catalogue for things like TV, commercials, and movies, which is how singers consistently make money.
So, the insiders explained that the way the artist earned his dough was through concerts, but they admitted that he was very impulsive when it came to scheduling shows, and would often put on performances spur of the moment.
Apparently, there were enough concerts that weren't super successful, and ultimately cost him a lot of cash.
But that's not all. Confidantes are also confessing that the hitmaker would tend to spend more than he had, and money had been an issue with him for years before his untimely death.

UPDATE 7:53 P.M. EST: Many have wondered if the necklace Rita wore in the lemon bikini photo was something special as it resembles a "J" initial. We've got your answer — it is actually a Jennifer Fisher gothic letter "R" necklace, which Rita has had for over three years.
Ruuuun, Rita Ora!!
In the 12-song visual album, the 34-year-old makes reference to side chicks and infidelity while calling out "Becky with the good hair" on the track Sorry.
While it's not confirmed just how many people the rapper may have cheated with — Beyoncé's stans will not sleep until Becky(s) is exposed!
Kim Kardashian West and Rachel Roy both need to revisit the phrase, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade".
Over this past weekend, Kim and Rachel hardcore embarrassed themselves when they tried to upstage Beyoncé and the debut of her visual album, Lemonade. Let's just say the internet was drowning in second embarrassment… so much so we don't know if we'll ever recover.
For those who aren't familiar with the thirsty situation, Keeks shared a montage of "sexy" photos (we still can't unseen that upshot of her boobs), while Roy seemingly outed herself as Jay-Z's mistress Becky. Both moves were unnecessary and DESPERATE.
The whole scandal is especially interesting considering one of the ladies just gave an impassioned speech about how women should support each other…
So, while we know this will be a tough choice, we got to ask…
Kaley Cuoco seems happier than ever with her new beau!
As you may know, the Big Bang Theory actress has been spending quite a bit of time with equestrian Karl Cook. Not to mention, the twosome were first cuddling up together on Instagram back in March. Aww!
Well, Miz Cuoco has once again flaunted her romance online as she's shared another sweet pic of the two of them — only this time they're at a local farmers market. Too cute!
For the snap (above), she wrote:
Leave it to Wendy Williams to call EVERYBODY to the curb!
On The Wendy Williams Show on Monday morning, the host took out her skeptic's hat and dropped bombs on Rachel AND Beyoncé simultaneously:
He can do no wrong!
First he had In the Heights, then he made history with Hamilton, and now Lin-Manuel Miranda is all about Puerto Rico.
The son of two Puerto Ricans, Lin stopped by Last Week Tonight on Sunday to address the Commonwealth's debilitating $70 BILLION public debt!
Not only is the message poignant, but the song feels just as powerful as all of his other bodies of work.
Hopefully the Hamilton star's intense level of fame leads to some positive changes over in Congress — after all, he did promise Paul Ryan free tickets!
Ch-ch-check out Lin-Manuel Miranda's latest political rap (below)!!!
Here comes the
bride birthday girl!
Kate Hudson threw her annual "Hot Mess" party Saturday night along with fellow April babies Jennifer Meyer (jewelry designer and Tobey Maguire's wife) and Derek Blasberg (magazine editor and friends with everyone) at her home in Pacific Palisades.
This year the theme was "wedding," — a really raunchy fun wedding with everyone dressed as brides and no grooms to worry about!
Kate posted a photo of herself and her two friends at the "reception" and wrote:
"It was some night 💃🎉 Love you guys 💋 #NothingLikeAJointBday#AprilBabies #AnnualHotMessParty#WeddingEdition"
The actress later joked on Snapchat that she'd married her brother Oliver Hudson during the night. Ha!!!
Check out a video of the shenanigans (below):
