Casey Anthony was forced to come out of hiding Monday.
The woman acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter was summoned to bankruptcy court to explain why she's broke.
Her attorney helped keep her face covered as both ran a gauntlet of media into the courtroom.
Anthony filed for chapter seven bankruptcy in late January, claiming that since her acquittal on charges she murdered her 2-year-old daughter Caylee she hasn't had a job and only has a thousand dollars in assets, but nearly $800,000 in debts.
In court Anthony said says she doesn't pay rent or utilities and is living off the kindness of others.
Her debts were detailed:
- $500,000 for attorney fees and costs to defend her during trial
- More than $145,000 owed to the Orange County Sheriff's Office for investigative fees and costs
- More than $68,000 for the IRS for taxes, interest and penalties
In addition to being unemployed, she says she has not received any offers for a book, movie or TV deal.
