Kelly Rutherford rose to fame with her roles in hit TV shows like “Melrose Place” and “Gossip Girl”. But the once-wealthy actress had to file for bankruptcy back in 2013 after a nasty divorce with ex-husband Daniel Giersch.
Rutherford was in and out of court and bleeding money in legal fees for seven long years, after which she finally got custody of her two kids. She might not be able to afford a luxury lifestyle anymore, but at least she’s got her children.

Sadly, the Oscar nominee actor mismanaged his financials and his life in general. He skipped on thousands of dollars in unpaid hotel bills, had several run-ins with the law, and just went a bit crazy. What’s worse, he and his wife claim they were robbed of their fortune by a secret cult called ‘Hollywood Star Whackers,’ whose goal is to defame and kill off celebrities for their money. Yikes!
Cute little Danny from the famous TV show "The Partridge Family" once had a very comfortable paycheck. The role gave actor Danny Bonaduce enough money to never have to work again, but again, like many child actors, once the show ended in 1974, Bonaduce started with illegal substances.
He blew through most of his money and was left broke and homeless. After a few really bad years, Bonaduce finally kicked his habits and is now seeing success as a radio DJ since 2011.
Former professional boxer Evander Holyfield had a stellar career of over 20 years, earning the World Heavyweight Champion title four times and winning a bronze medal in the Olympics. Holyfield once had a net worth of over $240 million, and that was in prize money alone!

Eccentric comedian and actor Andy Dick was huge back in the 90s and early 2000s. Unfortunately, thanks to several legal issues, lewd behavior, theft accusations, and substance abuse, Dick has lost most of the fortune he amassed from his TV career.
