[Blind Gossip] This guy is one of the most famous musicians in the world. We always thought he was one of the richest, too. Not necessarily!
Finances are a problem for the couple. He is not good at managing his money, and his wife is a huge shopper.
A few years ago, she decided to go to Northern Italy to do some shopping. She shopped all day for expensive art and furnishings, and stayed in a luxury hotel at night.
Well, she ran out of money. She tried to leave the hotel, but was barred from doing so. You see, in Italy, it is a crime to leave a hotel without settling your bill in full! They told her that she had to pay her bill… or she was going to go to jail!
Her credit cards were maxed out, she didn’t have the cash to settle the bill, and she knew that her husband didn’t have the money either. And she really didn’t want to have to face off against the Italian police!
In the end, she decided to call one of her husband’s band mates and beg him to lend her the money. Although it was embarrassing for her, it was better than getting arrested and having their true financial situation exposed to the public.
