Carmen Electra became homeless in her early twenties when all her savings were stolen by an ex-boyfriend.
After her gig ended as one of Prince's dancers, Electra's boyfriend stole her savings, which led to her being homeless for a few years in Hollywood, according to Doug Elfman at the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Electra told Elfman:
"I remember sitting on a park bench in the valley. I was crying because I was stranded. It was over 100 degrees outside.
"I was sitting there with a pocketknife and a pager and some change in my pocket, and a really nice pair of high heels. Versace heels, because I had a few pieces of my amazing clothes I'd gotten along the way.
"I remember crying and watching cars drive by and thinking, 'I would do anything just to be able to get from here to there — to get down the block!' I was, like, 'I can't walk anymore.'"
