Mekhi Phifer files for bankruptcy
Actor Mekhi Phifer may have returned to the small screen with a recurring role on Showtime’s hit show, “House Of Lies” but it appears that his finances have taken a toll for the worse.
According to TMZ,
Last month, Phifer filed for a chapter 7 bankruptcy, claiming roughly $67,000 in assets and $1.3 million in debt!
In his expense report, Phifer claimed that “he spends around $11,600 in monthly expenses, but pulls in only $7,500.”
“His debts are impressive … $1.2 mil in back taxes, $50K in lawyers bills and $4,500 in back child support.”
On the bright side, Phifer’s list of assets is pretty impressive, including a leather couch bed, a 12-year-old Segway, valued at $1,500 and a collection of firearms, including 1 shotgun and 2 9mm pistols.
Phifer joins a long list of celebrities whose mismanaged money and overspending left them in hot water. Hit the flip for other celebs who’ve filed for bankruptcy below. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
