With the millions they’re putting in their bank accounts, many fans expect that celebrities live picture-perfect lives. After all, how do their Instagram feeds look so good? But even though most stars can afford to hire a team of housekeepers and butlers, it doesn’t mean that all of them do or that their homes are squeaky clean. The celebrities that made this list all live in squalor – they keep their homes dirty or uninviting. And for some, the same can be said about their looks. It turns out that wealth doesn’t always translate into clean living. While some of these stars may want to change their ways, others seem perfectly accustomed and happy with their lifestyles. We just feel bad for the employees who will have to clean-up their messes. But who knows, maybe they’ll go to the media and dish on just how unpleasant these celebrities can be.
20 Kim Isn’t As Clean As Kanye Would Like
Mom-of-four Kim Kardashian has admitted that she’s not as tidy as her husband Kanye West would like. At least they have enough money to employ several housekeepers, right? “He’s a neat freak, she’s a mess,” a source told Dish Nation about Kimye. “She always just throws her clothes on the floor after taking them off, leaves puddles of water around the sink after she washes her face, and refuses to close drawers and cabinets.” No wonder Kanye cleaned out Kim’s closet when they first started dating.

4 Christina Has An Odor To Her
Christina Aguilera could afford to buy an entire perfume store, so we’re not sure what her excuse is for smelling funky. But several people have commented on her, um, odor. A few years ago, a reporter described her as smelling like a 12-year old girl’s bedroom. Then, Hannah Hooper from Groupelove (who grew up with Xtina) said the singer smelled like hot dogs. How weirdly specific.
