16 Celebrities Who Fell Into Homelessness

List of celebrities who went from successful and rich to homeless. Many of us have heard the hard luck stories of celebrities who have worked their way up from nothing. The success stories of the once homeless now living in million dollar mansions. What about the other side? The people who, despite years of success, have tumbled not only into obscurity, but have lost everything along the way.

The former celebrities listed below made their living as actors, sports stars and musicians with varying degrees of fame. No matter how high they soared, they all reached the same low. The good news is that many of the celebrities listed here have entered recovery, started to work again or have got back on their feet in other ways.

    At one point in time, Sly Stone was one of the biggest names in music. The head of the legendary funk band, Sly & The Family Stone, used to own multiple houses throughout the United States. These even included a vineyard in the Napa Valley.

    These days though, Sly is living out of a van on the streets of Los Angeles. The singer has made some poor spending choices in his life. This coupled with a history of drug abuse has forced him out of his homes and onto the streets.

    Not that he is complaining. Sly has gone on record as saying that he doesn't mind his lifestyle as he is still able to continue to write his music. He goes as far as saying that he doesn't think that he will ever want to have another stationary house again, preferring to live out of his small camper.
