These 20 Celebrities Have Unclaimed Money Just Sitting In The California Treasury
With so many people unemployed right now in the midst of the global pandemic, we could all use a little financial help. One simple thing that everyone should do is check that you have no unclaimed money in your state’s treasury until you notice it and make a claim. There could be money that belongs to you! I just checked and found $ 150 held in my name. A friend found $ 500!
To be clear, it’s your money. It is not a scam or sales pitch. It is money that tried to be sent to you but that was not returned. For example, if at some point an insurance company tried to send you $ 50 in reimbursement, but you moved, the money must legally be held by the state treasurer for a period.
Each state has a portal where citizens can search for themselves. In fact, you can search for any name … but you cannot claim someone else’s money.
SO… because it’s CelebrityNetWorth and because we only have time available, we thought it would be funny to search for celebrities on the California portal.
We searched for celebrities with unique names or different legal names to make sure we didn’t find any random people who happened to have famous names. For example, there are actually FOUR Tom Cruises in California that have unclaimed money. But you have to remember that celebrity Tom Cruise’s real name is actually Thomas Mapother IV. In addition, one of the other Tom Cruises should check his unclaimed property as he owes three separate reimbursements to Health Net of California in the amount of $ 1,803.90, $ 714.00 and $ 125.00. It is not insignificant money!
To check your unclaimed property, just google “[your state name] unclaimed property search“and you should see the portal for your state. If you have lived in several states, check several states!, pension money … who knows!
And by the way, be careful not to get caught up in a scam. If someone or any site says they are part of the government and can send you unclaimed money for a fee, it’s a scam.
Anyway, just for fun, here are 20 celebrities who have unclaimed money sitting in the California Treasury ?
Known legally as Stefani Germanotta, Gaga has a number of claims to the California Treasury, five to be exact. Four of them are balances of $ 100, $ 23.65, $ 100 and $ 0.93 from prepaid American Express gift cards and are listed as non-redeemed gift cards. The highest amount is $ 472.70 from GEPCB LLC, DBA Entertainment Partners, which is a payroll service for the entertainment industry, and is listed as Salaries, Payroll, Salary. Sure, Lady Gaga has a net worth of $ 320 million, but who doesn’t want the free money they owe? !!!
We searched for Aubrey Graham and we are pretty sure that non-Los Angeles-based people of the same name who owe $ 0.93 from Green Dot Bank, $ 1.95 from PayPal, and $ 0.93 from Amazon are not Drake. . The $ 3,183.00 owed to an address in Los Angeles that follows as a skyscraper in Westwood seems to be the real Drake. Its unclaimed property comes from the Connecticut State Tax Services Department. And of course Drake has a net worth of $ 180 million, but when you have a 747 private jet… every little detail counts.
Boxer Floyd Mayweather may want to check the unclaimed property database. With a net worth $ 505 million, he probably DOESN’T really NEED the $ 93.69 owed to him by the State of Nevada, but at the same time, every little bit of help helps, right?
The one and only Gordon Sumner, aka Sting, has two unclaimed amounts floating there. He owes $ 141.65 to Fireman’s Fund insurance Company. As you can see below, he also owes Warner Brothers $ 9.90. Another fun fact from Sting – did you know that makes about $ 2,000 a day, every day of the year, “Every Breath You Take” fees? A kind of breath to be honest. But still… get your STING money!
AKA Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the singer / entrepreneur has more than a dozen complaints! For some reason, she owes $ 0.93 to Facebook. The rest are unclaimed salaries from NBC, Warner Brothers and GEP ATL LLC Entertainment Partners totaling approximately $ 1,300. Surrreeee Rihanna’s net worth is $ 400 million, but who wouldn’t want $ 1,300!?!
Reese Witherspoon, also known as Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon, turned on the small screen with her performance in Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere. His performance is worthy of Emmy. Maybe she should collect almost $ 700 that she owes to Neiman Marcus and buy a little something special to accompany him $ 200 million net worth.
Brad Pitt, alias William Bradley Pitt, recently helped his longtime friend and makeup artist Jean Black in the new Celebrity IOU show by working with the Property Brothers to transform a garage into a studio and guest house. He was quite adorable in the series, as was the repertoire between him and Jean. Either way, Pitt owes Sony Pictures Entertainment $ 37.74.
Kim Kardashian may be isolated and celebrating her husband Kanye West’s recent admission to the billionaire’s club, but she also has $ 54.19 in unclaimed cash from what appears to be an old Bank of America account.
Megan Markle and Prince Harry recently moved to Los Angeles. Now that she’s back in her hometown, she can check what she owes and find out that PayPal owes her $ 31.00 and that Chase owes her $ 16.02
If Emma Stone finds herself out of work for a while because of the entertainment industry shutdown due to the coronavirus, she can claim the $ 524.00 the Walt Disney Company owes her.
Jamie Foxx, aka Eric Marlon Bishop, owes $ 200.87 to News Publishing Australia Ltd., which Google tells me is a subsidiary of News Corp. aka Fox News.
Who knew stars were buying from Walmart? Mila Kunis does it or did it at some point because she owes Walmart $ 16.36.
Nicki Minaj owes $ 22.70 to UDR, Inc., a real estate trust that operates and rents luxury apartments. For example, a building owned by UDR in my neighborhood of Los Angeles, which I can see from my front lawn as it is a new high-rise building with 545 square feet studios starting at $ 2,799. A room of around 850 square feet starts at $ 4,183 per month and 1,200 square feet, two rooms starts at $ 6,794.
Iggy Azalea has two of the biggest amounts on this list due to him. She owes $ 1,000 to Disney and $ 763.70 to NBC.
Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro have a joint claim listed as “Personal Forbidden Checks” for $ 78.00. Electra and Navarro have been divorced since 2007.
Somewhere along the way, Bruno Mars lost a paycheck – or it was sent to the wrong address or lost by mail – in any case, it was never cashed and therefore he owes $ 557.44 to the Associated Musicians of Greater New York.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson recovered from COVID-19 and donated plasma to UCLA so that others could also recover. He also owed T-Mobile $ 0.60.
Snoop Dogg, beloved rapper, marijuana enthusiast and best friend of Martha Stewart, owes $ 4.13 from PayPal.
The former California governor owes $ 150 from the Kiva User Funds. It is listed as a credit balance. He also owed $ 0.15 from UPromise and $ 2.26 from Google payments.
DJ Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris, aka Adam Wiles, owes AIG Property Casualty Company $ 503. It is a refund of insurance premium.
