The recent dramatic changes in the housing market have negatively impacted Americans in all income brackets, including the super wealthy and even celebrities! Thus far in 2010, celebrity houses for sale keep popping up in real estate listings—occasionally with heavily slashed asking prices!

Even celebrity foreclosures are on the rise! Last year, wealthy celebrities like Wyclef Jean, Jose Canseco, Lenny Dykstra, Nicholas Cage and heiress Veronica Hearst found themselves in disastrous mortgage debt alongside hundreds of thousands of average-income homeowners. Even Michael Jackson—before his untimely death in 2009—was dangerously close to losing Neverland Ranch.
