David Adkins – known by his stage name Sinbad – first filed for bankruptcy in 2009, when he was placed in the Top 10 of the 250 worst tax debtors for the state of California. He reportedly owed the state $2.5 million in personal income tax, and had to put up his 2.5-acre hilltop home for sale. The American stand-up comedian and actor faced the same financial problems in 2013, when he filed for bankruptcy for the second time.
