6. Diana Ross
She was arrested a few months later for DUI, and a successful stay at The Canyon Ranch helped her overcome her addiction to alcohol.
Diana Ross is easily one of the most successful alcoholics on this list with an estimated net worth of over $250 million as of 2013.
She has been in the public eye since the ’60s when she shot to fame as the lead singer of the Motown Group The Supremes, and rivals Oprah Winfrey as the most famous African American woman in the world.
She is most famous for singing with The Supremes, but she has since put out several solo albums. She won a Golden Globe, and was nominated for an Academy Award for her work as an actress in the movie “Lady Sings the Blues.”
At the age of 70, the singer, songwriter, record producer and actress shows no signs of slowing down. She continues to perform, and also has six children including the most recent, Evan Ross, born in 1988.
Here’s hoping that she is able to stay sober for the rest of her life.
