This star, now 72, has seen her fortune evaporate due to financial mismanagement. For example, penalties and interest kept ballooning the size of the taxes she owed to the IRS. Today she has about $25,000 in assets and lots of liabilities.
Much a similar thing happened to Leonard Cohen who dodged the bankruptcy bullet by going on tour. When he was meditating at a Buddhist temple the woman in charge of his money was embezzling it. Currently, at age 78, he travels the U.S. putting on shows. In mid April he will appear here in central Connecticut for a show which runs three to four hours. Fans and reviewers marvel at his endurance.
