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

GARY BUSEY

For a man with over 70 films and an Oscar nomination to his name, it's surprising that Busey reportedly had less than $50,000 in assets when he declared bankruptcy in 2012. His manager attributed his financial woes to "past unfortunate choices, associations, events and circumstances that visited themselves upon this great American icon." Busey's main source of income today? Appearing on every reality TV series he can, including Celebrity Big Brother, The Apprentice, Celebrity Rebab with Dr. Drew and Celebrity Paranormal Project, to name a few.
