What happened: Elton John sued his accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and his business manager, Andrew Haydon, claiming they had mismanaged tour funds to the tune of around $29 million.

The conclusion: John had said he was scammed, but the court disagreed. John's loss not only cost him more than $10 million in legal fees, but made his flagrant spending habits public, as it was disclosed that John spent more than $60 million in less than two years, including more than $400,000 on flowers alone.
