12 Celebs Who Bounced Back from Bankruptcy

From Donald Trump to 50 Cent, see which stars started a new chapter after filing for Chapter 11

DONALD TRUMP

OK, so he's never personally declared bankruptcy but his business ventures have, starting with his Taj Mahal hotel in Atlantic City in 1991 to Trump Entertainment Resorts in 2009. For his part, Trump has said he used Chapter 11 as a business tool. "Basically I’ve used the laws of the country to my advantage and to other people’s advantage," he told Forbes. And given that Trump recently claimed during his presidential announcement that he's "really rich," it seems any financial suffering is long gone.
