Francis Ford Coppola is the godfather of film, a living legend that has created some of the greatest masterpieces in cinema history. He is responsible for Apocalypse Now, The Rainmaker, The Conversation, and of course, the epic Godfather trilogy. It would be hard to imagine this man having any kind of financial problem, but as it turns out, Coppola is no financial wiz.
Even though Mr. Coppola seems to have weathered the worst of his financial woes, he actually had to file for bankruptcy three times in ten years. Why? Because one of his films, One from the Heart, was a box-office disaster that took the director years to recover from. At one point, Coppola reportedly owed over $98 million.
Dennis Rodman is best described as a loud, flashy, over-the-top one-man show. But that doesn't mean he wasn't a hell of a basketball player in his prime. Unfortunately, this former sports star has too much love for the extravagant lifestyle, and it has cost him dearly. At one point, his lawyers claimed that Rodman couldn't even cover his basic living expenses.
As if that weren't bad enough, the former basketball legend couldn't even afford to pay his two kids' child support, owing nearly $1 million. To make things worse, Rodman was apparently stealing from several stores at some point, even though he completely denied the rumors.
La Toya Jackson
The Jackson family has suffered its fair share of scandals, and La Toya is no exception. Over the years, there have been countless rumors about La Toya Jackson's money problems. One of the most famous was the story of how she filed for bankruptcy back in the '90s after owing an absurd amount of money to the infamous Moulin Rouge club in Paris.
Unlike her siblings, La Toya never had much of a music career, to begin with, and the money she did make appears to have quickly disappeared. Some say it was mostly because of a gold-digging, abusive ex-husband who bled her dry of her savings. Whatever it was, La Toya is definitely not enjoying the Jackson celebrity lifestyle.
Dionne Warwick is a six-time Grammy Award-winning music legend. She is also an actress, a former TV host, and even a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. There is nothing this iconic woman hasn't done, and unfortunately, that includes tax evasion.
Miss Warwick has reportedly been struggling with money problems since the '90s, owing millions of dollars to the IRS. And of course, that's not counting the back taxes and interest rates. Unfortunately for Warwick, even after paying her initial debt, her bank account was still in the red. We do hope things get better for this music legend.
Even though Stephen Baldwin had his fifteen minutes of fame after supporting roles in Born on the Fourth of July and The Usual Suspects, his career went silent after that. Unlike his brother Alec, this Baldwin brother didn't enjoy the same success, and eventually, his finances took a big hit.
In 2009, Stephen got caught up in tax evasion, and apparently, things got so bad that he had to file for bankruptcy and even foreclose his home. As if that weren't enough, he even served probation a few times in the last ten years. Evidently, even the Baldwins can have money issues.
