A lot of people get famous and make their money out of becoming music artists. But the problem is that sometimes, they cannot handle the fame and the fortune and develop problems. Be it drug problems or gambling problems. There are some celebrities that have a very good handle on their money and while they may bet occasionally, they also have enough self control that they do not end up spending all of their money and going broke. Betting is fun if it is done for fun but if it becomes a problem that is when their downward spiral begins.
One such musical celeb who has a problem with betting is none other then Gladys Knight. Gladys Knight is known the world over as the “Empress of Soul”. She also happens to be a songwriter, an actress and a business woman with a betting problem. Sure, she seems like a successful woman and why would she try to ruin it by developing a betting problem you may ask?
One thing is for sure, she was not born into having a gambling addiction but she did develop after several years of living in Las Vegas and slumming it up in some Casinos in Reno. She mentioned in one interview that she could even lose up to 45,000 dollars a night just playing baccarat. That is a whole lot of money. She also admitted that she would sometimes even get out of bed at 2am just to go and bet in baccarat games in her favorite casino.
Another musical celeb is Christchurch rapper named Scribe. He has confessed to being addicted to gambling, booze and a bunch of other unhealthy things. He has confessed to this but has also claimed that he has recovered. How? His family cut him off from his money supply.
