Former Nickelodeon child star Drake Bell is in some financial trouble.
The former Drake & Josh star recently filed for bankruptcy, claiming that he’s $581,000 in debt. According to TMZ, Bell makes $2,820 a month, but his expenses run up to $18,771 a month. He is also listing the value of his house at $1.575 million, but it seems he owes $1.597 million. Bell also had a significant drop in his yearly income from 2012 to 2013. While he says he made $408,000 in 2012, he only made $14,099 in 2013.
It seems many Justin Bieber fans are happy with this turn of events in Bell’s life. Recently Bell spent some time on Twitter bashing Bieber for his recent troubles with the law and then continued to just bash him in general.
Two tweets he wrote on January 16 about Bieber after the egging incident have since been deleted, but thanks to Gossip Cop who published them in time, we know they said, “Hey @justinbieber how much are you paying Lil Za to take the coke wrap for ya? Be a man and take responsibility. Learn to be an ADULT!” Bell then tweeted, “@justinbieber instead of egging speeding around your neighborhood and defacing property like a little s–t you should practice your guitar!!”
The only one from that day he didn’t deem necessary to delete still wasn’t very nice.

So of course, Beliebers think this is some sort of karmic retribution. You don’t mess with the Biebs man.
