ER alum Mekhi Phifer is broke as a joke.

The Divergent actor just filed for bankruptcy after racking up $1.3 million in debt, TMZ reports. $1.2 million of that is in back taxes. Yipes. $50 K is for legal fees and $4,500 is for back child support.

Phifer seems to have quite the spending problem, shelling out $11,600 in monthly expenses while only taking in $7,500 a month, according to the Huffington Post.

At least he has $67,000 in assets, which include a leather bed (ooo, aaahhh) a 12-year-old Segway and a large collection of firearms.
