It’s hard to believe that, after accomplishing so much, some celebrities fell from the height of fame straight to the bottom of the universe. Whether the reason had to do with the use of drugs, overly-high pride, lack of luck, or something else, it doesn’t matter. This post ain’t aimed at judging former celebrities but about stating facts. Below is the list of the top 3 celebrities who, after being super successful, failed and became homeless.
Carlos Santana’s Band Musician
Marcus “The Magnificent” Malone became homeless after Carlos Santana got disconnected with him and other members of the band. Many years later, one of the Kron4 journalists stumbled upon a homeless man picking up garbage. Yes, the homeless man was the former musician of Carlos Santana. Despite all the tragedy, this story has a happy end. The journalist reunited Marcus Malone with Carlos Santana. Who knows, maybe the once famous and then homeless man will become famous again. Only time will tell.
Delonte West the Basketball Player
Delonte’s career as a basketball player went straight to the garbage after the famous (in the past) athlete got arrested after possessing 2 weapons. Who would believe that a favorite LeBron’s buddy would take his life down so quickly?
In one of his latest interviews with Vice, Delonte West stated that he is no longer homeless. Let’s hope that he is not. However, the previous investigations that include photographs of West being in a very poor condition on the streets prove otherwise.
Boxer Iran Barkley
Iran Barkley became homeless after his retirement. Totally broke and old, Barkley was unable to pay rent in his Bronx apartment. Thus, the former athlete had to move out. Luckily, Iran was born in America. As a matter of fact, he got some help from the boxing charity foundation that provided him with some housing. However, it’s not 5 million this time. He can barely survive these days.
