Bell, 27, claims that he is $2.166 million in debt and is worth $1.575 million in real estate and an additional $10,500 in personal property, according to court filings obtained by E! News. Of the more than $2 million that Bell owes, $46,000 is to the IRS.
In 2012, Bell claims he made $408,000 and dramatically less – $14,099 – in 2013. He estimates that he now makes roughly $2,820 per month, however, his expenses apparently total more than $18,000 monthly, reported TMZ.
Bell last made headlines back in January when he dissed Justin Bieber, calling him “talentless” and “artless” on Twitter and calling for people to sign the petition to deport the singer.
