Where does the money go?

I read a report about Eddy(eddie?) Curry's home going into foreclosure. Its a 4 million dollar home and he makes 11 million a year but he is losing it. Most lottery winners are broke in 5 years and athletes and entertainers are broke within 10 years of becoming millionaires. My question is where does the money go? Is there a drug or gambling addiction burning through the money? I would rather live in the suburbs for 40 years than live in a mansion for 4 years and get kicked out because im broke. In the suburbs the millionaires would have money left over for vacations and other luxuries. One person suggested the accountants and lawyers skim money off the top but that cant be the case everytime. 50 cent and Jay-Z have songs where they ask women would you still want to date me if I wasnt rich. They both admitted the money has caused women to think they are attractive when that wasnt always the case in the past so the answer to their "true love" questions seem obvious. Many people are finding out when the money goes the fake friends and shady family members go too.

Lotterypost put up this list:

You believe the best way to get rich is to win the lottery: 1 in 5
You will bowl a 300 game: 1 in 11,500
You will die in a fireworks accident: 1 in 1 million
You will be an astronaut: 1 in 13.2 million
You will climb Mount Everest: 1 in 50 million
You will be killed by a falling coconut: 1 in 250 million
You will successfully navigate an asteroid field (according to C-3PO in "The Empire Strikes Back"): approximately 3,720 to 1
You will win Powerball: 1 in 195,249,054
You will win Megamillions 1 in 175,711,536
These are always funny to me but even with the bad offs of Powerball and Megamillions I take a chance on Powerball every drawing and Megamillions when im in one of their states. Powerball is 20 million for tonight and Megamillions is 113 million for friday.
