Failed Celebrity Businesses

Tuesday, May 19, 2020, 8:45 am

1.Fashion Cafe

This was a cafe that was backed by supermodels including Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer. It was working along the lines of Planet Hollywood with memorabilia, but it only lasted from 1995 to 1998 before people grew tired of it.

2.Dollhouse Collection

This business was led by Paris Hilton, but she should have stuck to what she does best, which is nothing much at all. This was her own clothing line, but the problem was that she put herself over absolutely everything, so all you saw was her face and who would want to wear that? It is no wonder it then failed.

3.Angels and Kings

This was a bar that was opened in 2007 by Pete Wentz, but it only managed to survive for around four years unlike his music career. The main reason as to why it closed was that it had issues with serving people that were under age and clearly that is something that is going to destroy your reputation.

4.Flav's Fried Chicken

Well you would think that the way people love fried chicken in the US that this would have been a success, but Flavor Flav managed to pretty much break all records for a failed business. This particular restaurant lasted for less than 12 weeks before it closed due to bad decisions, money issues, and the management were terrible as well.

5.Shaq Vs

Well you don't need to guess who was behind this failed business venture, but the worst part was that it was a TV show, so Shaq had to deal with being humiliated in public. It lasted for two seasons whereby he had to take on various people at different challenges and how it lasted that long is an absolute mystery.


6.Planet Hollywood

This may surprise you as you will still see a few of their places around the world, but in all honesty Planet Hollywood was a bit of a flop. It was backed by the likes of Bruce Willis and Arnie to name only two, but by the mid 90's it was filing for bankruptcy and has since closed the vast majority of its locations.


At the height of his fame it was believed that Hulk Hogan could turn his hand to anything, but Pastamania proved that this was not the case. This was a restaurant that he opened up in Bloomington, but it closed less than a year later due to basically being rubbish.



This was a restaurant opened by Jennifer Lopez and it was a complete and utter failure. It managed to last a total of six years before bad reviews and protests by Peta led to it being forced into closing its doors.


This was a restaurant that was opened by Britney Spears, but it soon became apparent that she should stick to singing and not venture into the food industry. It basically lasted for a total of six months before it closed to a number of violations and the food was rubbish as well.



This was an idea that was floated by the owner of the WWE, Vince McMahon. His idea was to have a football league in the offseason that was hard hitting and fast, but it was then dropped by NBC and vanished without a trace.


This was a clothing line that was supposed to be launched by Kanye West, but it never really even got off the ground. People know that he does love fashion, but it only got as far as some designs being shown before he pulled the plug on it all.


12.The Kardashian Kard

The sisters decided that they wanted a slice of the pre-paid debit card market, so they went ahead and launched their own version. However, it only lasted a month due to the number of complaints that were received about it including the charges that they were applying.
