#12 Gary Coleman
Gary Coleman was a beloved child star who became a household name instantly! His run on the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes should have made him set for life, but that wasn't so. He had to file for bankruptcy when both his family and manager spent the money he received during his career. He sued them for $3.8 million and was awarded $1,280,000. He never fully recovered from this financial deficit and ended up working as a security guard later on in life. Coleman died in 2010 at the age of 42.
