    You know when you’ve got loads of money that you forget what’s owed to you and never claim it back? No? Us neither.

    But, it turns out that a number of wealthy celebrities are doing just that.

    Among the celebrities who are entitled to a bit of extra cash, are Tina Fey, Mariah Carey and Sean Coombs. While The 30 Rock star has funds dating back to 2005, P Diddy is owed cash from way back in 1991.
