Here are a few celebrities whose investments might have been a bad business choice.

Jay -Z

Being as successful as he is in touring, apparel and more, Jay-Z is not so good in the business area. In 2007 Jay-Z planned to develop a 150,000-square-foot luxury hotel, so he purchased a property in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC. But in 2008 the recession got high and the funds got low. Jay Z’s company reportedly defaulted on the $52 million dollar loan and the matter was taken to court, where the issue was resolved privately at the end of 2010 and Jay Z moved on to other business investments.
