Bankrupt Lenny Dykstra Owes TMZ an Apology

7/8/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lenny DykstraFormer New York Met Lenny Dykstra is officially broke -- he just filed for bankruptcy -- so he owes the TMZ staffer he called a "f***ing drama queen" last month an apology.

Dykstra, who just filed for Chapter 11 in California, went ballistic when we called to ask if his $400,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom had been repossessed. We had a photo of the car being towed -- so it's not like the question came out of left field.

Since Lenny is currently facing multiple lawsuits, home foreclosure and divorce -- his lawyer explained the filing to the New York Daily News by saying it was a move to "shield his property from a host of meritless claims."

Either way, the papers show he's over $30 million in the hole.

If Nails called your guy an F-in' Drama Queen, he's an F-in' Drama Queen. Deal with it.

I don't see how him going bankrupt means he owes a TMZ worker an apology. Haven't made your point TMZ.

I am so glad this sociopath is finally getting his due, and I only hope that the many people he has ripped off file a criminal complaint against him. Wonder if he'll be tough as nails in prison?

Shouldn't TMZ be reporting gossip, and not picking fights with every right wing whitey? If it were not for your love of homosexuals and Mickael Jackson, you would have no content

For the TMZ staffer that was called a F-ing drama queen, Sympathy card for his sad mishap with money and sign the card “Best
regards from your favorite f-ing drama queen” (John Wayne once said, "Don't let the bastards get you down")

This is one man's personal crisis; he does not have to answer to you nor confirm your nosy suspicions. His filings are a legal matter that he and his family and the courts must resolve. It's not as though you have the right to stick your nose into his business.

Keep it up, TMZ, and one of your staffers will get assaulted one day.

Don't hold your breath you self-righteous, ultra PC liberals.
TMZ is so full of themselves.
Nobody owes you anything.

Well at least it's nice to see TMZ getting off the Micheal Jackson bandwagon ...slowly but surely... and back to its rootin tootin roots.

How the hell can you go 30 million in the hole??? Seriously, these stupid celebrities don't know how to spend their money right. With michael in 400 mill debt, i bet a lot of it was mishandled with doctors and lawyers etc...i can see...and he pry gave his share away too....but this guy?? who the hell is he? LOL....seriously, celebrities need to be more wise with their money...hint hint lindsay. Instead of wasting it on fine jewlery, stuff that won't be worth a lot.......save it.....help others in need....don't buy a house or a car that will have too much tax on it...geez

Ok why do you refer to him as "The former New York Met"? He was with the Philadelphia Phillies LONGER than he was a Met. The Mets have enough to worry about. Stop giving them bad press with a player from the 80's who obviously holds the Philles more dear to him than the Mets.
