The man behind Sly and the Family Stone calls a white van home these days. The 68-year-old’s fortune ran out thanks to financial mismanagement, substance abuse and a lavish lifestyle, he tells the paper.

The singer has accused his manager, Jerry Goldstein, of stealing his royalty payments, and sued him for fraud last year.
