Former “CSI” star Gary Dourdan has filed for bankruptcy. According to reports, the actor filed because he has a little over $1.8 million in assets, but owes his creditors $1.73 million.
A large portion of that debt, $1,689,704, is owed to various banks, including Union Bank, which apparently holds the mortgage on his home that may be in default.
According to TMZ, his assets include $200 cash, $3,000 in a bank account, $4,000 in furniture, $200 worth of books, $1,500 in clothes, $500 in watches and a 2006 Dodge Charger worth $7,000. Dourdan says his disposable income is only $321 a month, his bills rack up to $14,562 a month, and he pulls in about $14,883 on average.
Dourdan says things will get better as he “anticipates major acting roles” in the future.
Dourdan has a troubled past. Earlier this year, an ex-girlfriend sued the actor, accusing him of assault and battery for breaking her nose. Dourdan was also found sleeping in his car in 2008 by the police, which led to his arrest on suspicion of possessing heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs.
