Sometimes things like undergoing a divorce can cost you a lot, especially when your divorce is an expensive one. Similar is the story of Teri Polo who had to face the financial crisis after an expensive divorce. And challenges do come and go away in life but if we have someone to rely upon during hard times it feels like half of our problem is already solved. So did Teri also get support from someone during her rough time or was she all alone?
Teri undergoes Through A Rough Financial Problem:
Teri had to run low in finance as she suffered badly in financial terms. She breaks the news of being bankrupted in April 2014 declaring less than $50,000 in assets and debts more than $800,000.
She claimed of owing almost a million dollars in back taxes and credit card bills. According to TMZ, she filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy owing around $772,000 in back taxes and $36,000 on credit cards.
During this hard time, she had to cut off her fancy meals and relied on pizzas only. It was a brave thing on her part to face this challenge alone.
In 2011 too, Teri owed over $450,000 in back taxes, which her manager, Bob McGowan, blamed on an expensive divorce from Anthony Moore.
The other reason for her financial difficulty could be the downfall of her career. She was doing good in her career – delivering hits like “Meet the Parents” until her nude photo shoot for Playboy magazine; which many things caused her career to shift into deterioration.

Adding to her financial problems, Teri who is a pet lover, was pursued for $30,000 after she allegedly left an apartment soiled with dog mess and urine.
Once, when she was doing good in her career, her net worth valued $2.5 million but due to her wrong career move, she had to undergo financial difficulty owing millions of dollar. This must have brought the devaluation in her net worth as now Teri net worth is estimated to be $800 Thousand.
Teri Polo’s Personal Life:
Teri was tied in the marital bond for the first time with photographer Anthony Moore. Together, the couple eloped to Las Vegas to get married in 1997, but they underwent divorce in 2005.

“I ran off to Vegas to get married and now I’m divorced but I have the most beautiful child in the entire universe who I would never, ever trade. I would live every part of my marriage and my subsequent, and very hard, divorce…again to have my son. It was a roundabout way to happiness.”
