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


As we saw during the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, boxers can command quite a big chunk of change. In fact, Tyson had earned up to $400 million over the course of his career before filing for bankruptcy in 2003. But when you spend as much as Tyson does (remember the Siberian tiger purchase, anyone?), debts can accumulate (in this case, $23 million) and even the heftiest incomes can fall short. Since retiring from the ring, however, Tyson has become a Hollywood heavyweight. Besides being the subject of the critically acclaimed documentary Tyson, he has stolen the show in The Hangover, headlined several TV series, released his autobiography and appeared on Broadway in the one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.
