EXCLUSIVE

0212-drake-bell-01Drake Bell -- a huge Nickelodeon child actor who starred in "Drake & Josh" -- has filed for bankruptcy ... TMZ has learned.  

The 26-year-old actor just filed legal docs, claiming he's in the hole to the tune of $581,000.

As for the breakdown, Bell lists the value of his house at $1.575 million.  The bad news -- he's underwater, owing $1.597 mil.

Bell says he's only pulling in $2,820 a month, but his expenses total a whopping $18,771.

The fattest year Bell lists is 2012, when he made $408,000, but the next year he made an anemic $14,099.

And Bell owes a bunch of loot in taxes.

Maybe he should stop going to Disneyland on the weekends and getting ****faced drunk at Mad T Party. I've seen so many pictures of him over the last month taken by friends where he looks completely wasted. This also explains why he's wearing practically the same clothes each time he does go to Disneyland/DCA and gets spotted by the people there.

One day parents will teach there kids to not become stars and if they do become stars, they need to be told to live below there means, no matter how much they make $ wise. Fame is collateral and thats the mistake made by kids when they make $100,000-$500,000 or $1,000,000 !!!! KIds dont pay attention because they have no education but, they are ridiculed as if they knew how to manage $. It will take someone to help young stars with finances for this to stop, hopefully he can get work to recover because hes talented. They key is to inform young men/woman after and during being child stars it may stop and prepare with college or alternate forms of financial security like starting a business.LGNM

Serves the dumb mother****er right. Literally, how old is he? 36? 32? whatever. He's a grown "adult" attacking a 19 year old over Twitter. Literally come on now. That's beyond immature. Even if you people don't care for Justin, cmon now.. Drake Bell had no future after 'Drake & Josh' was over. Drake Bell is a complete ***got, and nobody likes him. He spends his time bashing artist's who are better than him, and always will be. How smart is that? Like. Please. Explain to us all, where Drake Bell gets his logic from.

Drake Bell is good looking, a decent singer and entertained the heck out of me and my sisters during his Drake and Josh days. This guy might need to surround himself with a new team.
