Michael Jackson, formerly known as black singer

The verdict in Michael Jackson's case is due in about 20 minutes. There's a real possibility that he'll be packing his toothbrush, slippers and anal protector soon.

Whatever the outcome, his financial situation probably not improve (it was already bad before the trial) and he will not be able to sell the memorabilia and music rights forever. The question I am pondering is: When someone who was famous and hyper-mega-rich loses his money, what does he do? Will he be able to sell everything, live less famous life without bodyguards, stay in small penthouse somewhere and guest-star in sitcoms? Somehow, I cannot imagine Jackson living "normal life". Even if he could, the people wouldn't leave him alone. He will probably have to kill himself.
