Anyone who says money can’t buy happiness hasn’t been one of these unlucky celebrities. These famous faces are still trying to figure out how to be happy and live their best lives.
Justin Bieber was discovered when he was just 14 years old, and within 2 years, the pop sensation had achieved worldwide commercial success. The Biebs, now 28, is worth a staggering $285 million, so why isn’t he happy?
JB went through some tough times, including issues with mental illness, Lyme disease, and bad press due to equally bad behavior, but now he’s married to model Hailey Baldwin, and things seem to be looking up.
Another troubled child star turned adult, Demi Lovato made millions as a Disney icon and singer, but even having $40 million in the bank isn’t enough to offset the personal struggles.
Demi has worked hard to come to terms with her sexuality and gender identity, going to a rehab center for professional help along the way. She has now become an outspoken activist for mental health and LGBTQ rights.
Yes, even Old Blue Eyes spent time in landfills. According to Sinatra’s son, Frank Jr., the billionaire swing singer was often sad and withdrawn. Frank Jr.’s sister, Tina, agreed, even suggesting that his father would have been happier if he had taken antidepressants.
Although he was adored by countless fans, the man who sang about doing things his way was known for his mood swings, suffering from loneliness, and even attempted suicide several times.
There was a time when MC Hammer was one of the hottest acts around, but rapper U Can’t Touch This blundered when he squandered his fortune on extravagant purchases, including multiple planes and a $30 million luxury home.
Hammer was forced to file for bankruptcy in 1996. He then turned to religion and started his own ministry, but ran into trouble again when the IRS sued for back taxes in 2011.
Poor Shia. A talented actor loved by fans, he has a filmography that includes hits like the Transformers franchise and an Indiana Jones movie. But LaBeouf also has a reputation for behaving erratically, and that likely kept him from reaching the upper ranks of Hollywood’s elite.
LaBeouf is still worth around $25 million, but these days he’s better known as an oddly dressed loner than box office gold.
