Notorious actor Robert Blake is facing further financial woes after filing for bankruptcy in 2006 - he allegedly owes more than $1.1 million in unpaid taxes to the state of California. The "In Cold Blood" star became infamous for his troubled personal life when he was tried and acquitted of murder in 2005 following the death of his wife Bonnie Lee Bakley.

Bakley's three children filed a civil suit against Blake and he was ordered to pay $30 million after he was found liable for her wrongful death. Blake filed for bankruptcy in February, 2006 while struggling to pay off almost £3 million in unpaid state and federal taxes as well as his mounting legal fees.

According to the Detroit News, the star is being chased for even further debts - he's been hit with a new tax lien, filed in Los Angeles, for $1.1 million in back taxes.

I think all this should be over!!!!!!!!!! It is a shame that you can be aquitted and still be liable! This is bull crap. I feel sorry for her kids but a slut like her should not be able to continue hurting and draining people even after death. I guess her children were doing what MOMMA taught them. Take from others and never work for your money! They are using Robert Blake and if I were him, I would sell everything for a few dollars, put in for social security or ssi and watch them all sqirm and have to get a job like the rest of the world.

I only see Robert as a victim. Can anyone help him? He was acquitted. It's absurd that his "wife"'s family sued him. He is no OJ. Let him take care of the kid he loves and live out the rest of his life peacefully; he deserves it.

The woman was just a golddigger, and an especially inept and nasty one. It's no surprise she ended up the way she did. As to Blake, I'd still consider seeing any movie he may be in.

Blake should receive an award for killing Bakely if he did it. He was acquitted so it's a moot point. What a scumbag she was.

Why doesn't Hollywood hold a televised marathon for him? The lawsuit was only a payback for what he did. No different than OJ's. On paper only. No way to collect.

Bonnie Lee Bakely was slime. Her kids are just sucking Robert Blake's wallet.
