Nicolas Cage liked spending what he earned and he liked spending big: he wasn’t afraid to splash out on lavish mansions and private jets, though he ended up going bankrupt with more than $14 million in debt and had to give up his luxuries.

In 2007 Michael Jackson ended up having to file for bankruptcy because he was unable to pay back a $25 million loan he’d taken out on his Neverland Ranch home. Even though Jackson had signed a huge record deal and had sold over 750 million records, at the time he went bankrupt he reportedly had access to less than 0.05% of his net worth in cash.
