Celebrities Who Have Gambling Problems

A list of celebrities addicted to gambling. It's no secret that stars love to spend their money. It's common for famous people to purchase everything from luxury cars to real estate, but there are a growing number of celebs who would rather gamble away their earnings at casinos and poker tournaments. Some of Hollywood's biggest movie stars have reportedly been addicted to gambling, including Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen and Tobey Maguire. Placing bets is also not a man's pastime. There are plenty of female celebrities equally addicted to gambling such as actress Shannon Elizabeth, who is a poker pro. 

There are also times when a gambling addiction spins out of control. The range of addiction can go from a casual player to compulsive gambler, which is also known by the term Ludomania. In 2011, music legend Gladys Knight revealed that she beat a nearly decade-long gambling problem and confessed to spending up to $40,000 a night playing baccarat. NBA great Charles Barkley admitted he has lost over $10 million at casinos throughout his adult life. We gathered a list of famous gamblers in the list below. See if one of your favorite Hollywood or sports stars has risked it all in the high stakes world of gambling!
