Ex-'CSI' star files for bankruptcy

The road has been a bumpy one for actor Gary Dourdan since he left CBS' crime procedural "CSI."

Gary Dourdan

Since 2008, the actor has been involved in numerous incidents, running afoul of the law with charges from an ex-girlfriend of assault and battery as well as an arrest for possession of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs.

Now, Dourdan is being forced to file for bankruptcy due to exorbitant debts that his assets and income simply can't cover. According to a report from TMZ, court papers show Dourdan has approximately $1.8 million in assets and debts of $1.73 million, with the majority owed to multiple banks. Union Bank holds the mortgage on the actor's home, although it has yet to be reported whether the house is in foreclosure or default. Also, it has yet to be understood by this reporter what the difference is between the two.

Anticipated acting roles in the future would aid in bringing down the debt, but work has been sparse since he left the CBS procedural. Still, the actor claims to earn $14883 per month, but after debt repayment and expenses he is left with only $321 in disposable income.

I guess you could say that ol’ Gary’s prospects for debt repayment are….*puts on sunglasses* …DOUR, Dan.  YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHH!

Default is the act of failing to live up to your contractual agreements (in this case making the payments). Foreclosure is the remedy for this default, it is the act of forcing the sale of the property to satisfied the secured debt.
