10. Whitney Houston – $20 Million
Whitney Houston was a singer and an actress who sold several documents and won many awards during her career. She had a wonderful career, but things took a turn in 1999 when her behaviour turned erratic.
Houston started showing up late to interviews, missing exhibition, and also to lose weight that many attributed to the usage of drugs.
