Actor/reality star Stephen Baldwin scored a $110,000 book advance to write a book entitled Ready to Get Dangerous? The book was supposed to be a memoir about Stephen’s life with a heavy dose of Christianity. A press release described the book, which was sold in 2007, as “what it means to live everyday as ‘a sold out, hardcore, nothing held back Jesus freak.'”
Stephen isn’t the first celebrity to default on a book and find themselves having to pay back money to a publisher. Random House successfully sued P.Diddy after he failed to deliver a memoir they were planning to publish, and Victoria Gotti had to pay back HarperCollins, also for a memoir.
