Updated on December 30, 2022

Normal everyday citizens are not the only ones who have real estate problems. Celebrities have them, too. Sometimes, its the celebs who are most famous, and who we would least expect to, who go through these issues. Behold, here are five (or six) celebrities who faced eviction at some point in their lives.


In 2016, Hip-hop star Tyga was reportedly being evicted (again) from his then home in the Hollywood Hills. Tyga had been allegedly late on payments, resulting in roughly $70,000 in back rent (rent was $17,000 a month). Later this year, it was said that the Landlord had reached a settlement with the hip-hop star.

Courtney Love

In 2011, the 90’s rock star was facing eviction from her Manhattan townhome for a number of things. First, for failure to pay rent; then there was an allegation that Love had damaged the property (with a small fire) and made changes without first getting permission to do so. In 2012 Love won the lawsuit against her landlord after the court granted her motion for summary judgment.

Jay Z and Beyoncé

Last year, in 2015, two of the biggest stars in the music industry were bring evicted from their LA home in Holmby Hills. Yes, it is hard to believe that Beyoncé and Jay Z could ever go through something like this, but the reason for it happening is not what you think. Apparently, the homeowner had sold the property, which was the reason for the eviction. It was not due to tenancy problems or failure to pay rent.
