Casey Anthony

Files for Bankruptcy

1/27/2013 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127_Casey-Anthony_gettyCasey Anthony is looking to make a fresh start ... financially speaking ... and has filed for bankruptcy in Florida.

Anthony, who had two of her convictions for lying to authorities tossed out on Friday, filed for Chapter 7 protection in a Tampa court on the same day.

In the docs, Anthony says she owes almost $800,000 to about 80 creditors and has no income to speak of. Among her debts:

-- $500,000 to lead defense attorney Jose Baez.

-- $145,660 to the Orange County Sheriff's Office

-- $68,540 to the IRS

Not listed among her creditors ... Home Depot.

Anthony is also in the middle of defending herself from a defamation lawsuit from Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, who claims Anthony ruined her reputation.

Really? Bankruptcy? Wow, guess that million dollar deal for a book or movie didn't pan out. Hey she could clean toilets, haul garbage, anything out there to pay back what she owes. Novel idea, she could tell the truth for money. I'm sure someone out there would pay her debts if she'd admit that she did indeed kill her baby girl. At least the public would have confirmation that she was and always will be guilty of the worst crime ever...

Lol she's filing bankruptcy so it'd be pointless to sue her in the civil court.

How is Casey supporting herself if she's not working? Is her family giving her money, or is she stripping or whoring herself out? After what she said about her father & brother why would they ever have anything to do with her?
