"My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time," said Ciccone, who grew up in Rochester Hills, Mich. along with his six siblings including his multiplatinum music artist sister, 53. "You think I haven't answered this kind of question a bazillion times -- why my sister is a multibazillionaire, and I'm homeless on the street? Never say never. This could happen to anybody."

Ciccone attributes his status to losing his job at his father's Suttons Bay winery over a year ago.
