Sometimes it feels good to splurge.
But it would seem Charlotte Church is a woman who doesn’t know how to stop herself after revealing she has spent the majority of her fortune.
The 28-year-old beauty, who was worth a reported £25 million at the age of 17, has now admitted that she will be forced to work for the rest of her life to pay the bills.
Speaking to BBC One Wales, the singer admitted: “I will have to work for the rest of my life. Not because I want to but because I have to.
“I always understood that all that stuff isn’t important and my career was not the be and end all.
“The tax man is looking at my accounts wondering where I’m hiding all my money.”
In 2003, Charlotte’s worth was at its peak, standing at £25m, but by 2010 she was down to £11m. Three years on, the Sunday Times Rich list reported she was worth just £8 million.
We say just, but we wouldn’t mind having that in the bank.
Charlotte shot to fame and fortune at the age of 12, performing in front of likes of the Queen, the Pope and Nelson Mandela.
Following five successful albums – including a crossover from classical to pop – Charlotte took a step back from the limelight, returning with a rockier sound.
Unfortunately, her new material failed to set the charts alight with her previous nine singles failing to reach the top 40.
She previously admitted earlier this year to Stylist magazine that she isn’t able to sustain her expensive taste.
She said: “I haven’t got a lot of money. I’ve got enough to be comfortable if I was reasonable for the rest of my life, but I’m not reasonable, so I will have to find a way to sustain my lifestyle.”
