Mekhi Phiffer brokeEye candy Mekhi Phifer (pictured), who is best known for his riveting roles in the films “8 Mile,” “Soul Food,” and as “Dr. Gregory Pratt” for six years on the long-running TV series, “ER,” is now broke and filing for bankruptcy, according to TMZ.

Phifer reportedly filed for bankruptcy late last month. The actor only has $67,000 in assets but reportedly owes the IRS a whopping $1.2 million in back taxes, $50,000 in attorney’s fees, and $4,500 in owed child support obligations, bringing his debt total to about $1.3 million.

Even though the 39-year-old earns a reported $7,500 per month, he reportedly lives a champagne life with a monthly spending habit of about $11,600.

Phifer, who married his longtime sweetheart Reshelet Barnes last year in a small ceremony attended by about 100 folks, reportedly listed a modest list of assets, including a 12-year-old Segway that has a value of about $1,500, a leather bed, a collection of firearms (1 shotgun and two 9 mm pistols) and not much else, according to TMZ.

The actor was previously married to actress Malinda Williams and the union produced a son. The couple made headlines back in 2003, when Williams publicly admitted Phifer had cheated, blaming him for their marriage breakdown.
