'Meet the Parents' Star

Meets the Bankruptcy

4/22/2014 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Teri Polo Bankrupt"Meet the Parents" star Teri Polo has royally Focked herself -- at least in the money department -- because TMZ has learned ... she just went belly up.

Teri filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week, claiming she's buried in nearly a million dollars of debt -- most of which she owes to the IRS.

Teri claims she owes roughly $772,000 in back taxes and more than $36,000 in credit card debt.

She also says her landlord's going after her for $30,000 after she allegedly left an old apartment covered in dog crap and urine.

Bankruptcy ... you can't milk a cat, but you can milk the system.

this broad is obviously messed up. she sounds like a sleazeball. i bet she has spent irresponsibly and still has money but is hiding it and trying to get away from paying what she owes.

This is very unfortunate. Hate hearing stories like this although it's hard to have sympathy for a tax cheat.

We need communism. This would never happen if I was the leader of the country. No one would file bankruptcy in my communist nation.

Why doesn't she ask Ben stiller or Robert Deniro to bail her out? I'm sure if she blew them they would be happy to pay her bills.

It doesn't cost 30g's to clean up dog ****. I don't care how rich the fooks who rented your over priced apartment were. This is frivolous.

I'd say she is another loser...but then again, this is what our society has become. She got to live the high life for awhile for free and now she will stick us for the bills. Nowadays, the ones our kids envy are the ones that make millions fast as singers/rappers/ballers or those that milk the system for all it is worth while sitting on their a$$e$. Those of us that work hard, save, create a plan for a peaceful, independent retirement are the fools to be looked down upon.

Isn't it interesting all of the celebrities and movie stars who supported and voted Obama into office not once but twice are now being held under the microscope when it comes to their taxes and finances? Not only that, but most people do not realize it but Obama also signed into law that the IRS can now sue family members for the debts of parents and even grandparents. I'm not saying it is bad or good...just interesting.

Another Hollywood Liberal/Democrat living the high life and then filing bankruptcy causing other people to eat her debt... It's so sad that people idolize these stars and believe the crap they say.
