'When The Checks Stop Coming In'
(DVD / NR / 2015 / Cinedigm Entertainment)

Overview: When the Checks Stop Coming In is a candid investigation into the lives of black celebrities as they fall from fame and fortune to downright broke.

DVD Verdict: In truth, 'When the Checks Stop Coming In' was a documentary that I knew little about going in and yet didn't know - from the premise alone - if it was even going to be something that I could spend time watching. That said, it was both engrossing and engaging and proved to show me that life as a high roller isn't always what it seems to be, come the other side of the green, green grassy hill.

This incredibly in depth, and at times heartbreaking documentary is a candid investigation into the lives of black celebrities as they fall from fame and fortune to downright broke. It's the life of a celebrity, one minute you are singing to an audience of thousands, playing to an arena of screaming fans, or performing on television for millions of viewers. The accolades are coming fast and furious and the money is pouring in.

You think that the dream that you're living is never going to end, but then you wake up one day and all your money and your livelihood is gone. Your worst nightmare has come true and you're broke, the groupies are gone and the lifestyle has dried up! And, oh boy, with some of the stories you will see unfold before your very eyes here, dried up is an understatement! And in the case of one or two of these stars, well, let's just say it wasn't anything they ever saw coming!

Even the most seasoned and celebrated have lost it all. The list of celebrities gone broke includes Toni Braxton, Antione Walker, TLC, Wesley Snipes, Allen Iverson, MC Hammer, Dennis Rodman, and so many more. The list just keeps going on and on, trust me. Moguldom Studios interviews celebrities, managers, agents, and their financial advisors to learn how much was being spent and how these celebs spared no expense for the glitz and glamour that was their ultimate demise.

In short, and if I haven't been clear enough here, 'When The Checks Stop Coming In' looks behind the curtain and into the lives of black celebrities to find out how they got into financial trouble and what advice they would give to others in hindsight. Be it lavish lifestyles, poor financial management, child support, or tax evasion, 'When the Checks Stop Coming In' explores how these celebrities perpetuate an underlying issue within the African American community: an obsession with the American dollar.
