SINGER Jewel has revealed she used to be homeless.
The star says she had to live on the streets after being fired from her job.
“I ended up homeless because my boss propositioned me and when I wouldn’t sleep with him he didn’t give me my paycheck,” she said.
“I got kicked out of where I was living my rent was due that next day.
“I thought ‘Well, I’ll live in my car for a minute… get back on my feet,’ but I had bad kidneys and I never could hold down another job because I got sick so often. I didn’t have insurance and ended up almost dying in the parking lot of an emergency room because they wouldn’t admit me because I didn’t have insurance.
“I ended up homeless for about a month and I went back to singing.”
