*Sly Stone, one of the biggest names in music who fronted the mega group Sly and the Family Stone, is living in a van in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles.
Stone, whose hits include “Everyday People,” “Everybody is a Star,” and “I Want to Take You Higher,” said, “I just do not want to return to a fixed home, I cannot stand being in one place. I must keep moving,” he told the New York Post.
A local family has been taking care of the singer, who allows him to shower at their house. Their son has been helping Stone out by serving as his assistant and driver.
Stone ran into money troubles in 2009 when he stopped receiving royalty checks from his manager, whom he accused of fraud. He sued the manager for $50 million.
Stone also got into financial trouble when he sold his publishing rights to Michael Jackson for $1 million in 1984.
The musical great said that the FBI is after him and that he is on the run from his enemies who have hired hit men.
