Top Ten Bankrupt Lottery Winners Who Lived In Plenty But Died Penniless.

Too bad money can’t buy a brain.

Money doesn’t make you automatically happy. But even if it makes you sad, it is better to cry in a Ferrari than in a rented single bedroom flat, right? That is exactly what everybody thinks when they start out o their dream ventures, buy a lottery ticket or ace the race in their nine to five schedules.

Well, some of the guys below won’t agree with you. Millions of dollars only brought them misery and they ended up alone or worse. Intrigued? Scroll through their happy-sad stories below.

1.  Gerald Muswagon – $10 million

Gerald wanted everybody else to like him. And when he won $10 million his wish came true. His friends took advantage of him and, without a penny to his name, he committed suicide in 2005.

10 years ago Michael won the UK National Lottery. You would think that now he’s spending his time with models, no? Well, he’s now working at a biscuit factory to pay up his bills.

4.  Jack Whittaker – $93 million

“I wish I’d torn that ticket up”, said no one ever. Well, maybe with the exception or Jack Whittaker. After he won, it’s like all his good luck turned against him. A series of legal issues and personal problems, like alcoholism and being robbed multiple times made him poor again.

5.  Callie Rogers – $2.9 million

What do you do when you’re 16 and you win the UK lottery? Ensure your future? Apparently, buying drugs and booze seemed a better idea for Callie. YOLO!

6.  IbiRoncailoli – $5 million

After she and her husband won the lottery, she gave $2 million to a secret child that she had with another man. Her husband found out and you can guess what happened. No, not a divorce. He poisoned her.

7.  Billie Bob Harrell Jr. – $31 million

Billie thought in the end that the lottery winnings were the worst thing that happened to him. If we take into consideration that he lost his friends, divorced and then committed suicide, then we kind of agree.

8.  Alex Toth – $13 million

Alex and his wife Rhoda did them all after they won: traveled, gambled and gave money to friends. In the end, the bill came and they went back up to living paycheck to paycheck.

9.  Janite Lee – $18 million

Janite didn’t spent her money like the others, but spending her money on philanthropic efforts and political contributions got her bankrupt. At least she got to meet Bill Clinton!

10.  Sharon Tirabassi – $10,5 million

When she got her money, Sharon went to Cancun. Now she’s taking the bus to work. A clearer freefall than Nicolas Cage’s career is right here.
