Gary Busey files for bankruptcy, claiming debts up to $1 million




These are tough times for Gary Busey, who  filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in California on Monday, claiming he has $50,000 to his name, but more than 10 times that in debt. Didn't he at least get paid for doing Celebrity Rehab?

The 67-year-old actor awes money to lawyers, the IRS, UCLA Medical Center, Wells Fargo, an L.A. utility company, a storage company and maybe even a woman suing him for allegedly attacking her at the Tulsa airport last May, TMZ reports. The total for all that could be at least $500,000, or as much as $1 million.

"Gary's filing is the final chapter in a process that began a few years ago of jettisoning the litter of past unfortunate choices, associations, circumstances, and events," his rep told the site. At least he can still afford someone to handle his PR for him.
