Money is always a tough subject.
But money AND family can make things really complicated sometimes!
Chris Pratt has been making bank recently with his television show Parks And Recreation and his new hit movie Guardians Of The Galaxy, and the actor is primed to make even more as he becomes a superstar!
But the actor recently has been sending a lot of money back home to his family - and their financial situations seem to be pretty bad!
"Most of the family has had its share of financial problems. Chris doesn't come from a lot of money."
Not only has Chris Pratt's parents filed for bankruptcy, but his siblings have, as well!
Here's what a source said:
"Pratt's parents filed for bankruptcy, but his sister and brother have also filed for it, too. His mother, Kathy, currently works in the meat department of a grocery store, while his sister is a sales rep and his brother is an artist. Cully's, Pratt's brother, situation has reportedly become so dire that he revealed he is 'starving again.'"
However Chris Pratt does NOT plan on supporting them every month, and part of the reason for that is because of how hard he's worked to put himself in the position that he is in now!
A source said:
"Chris knows what it's like to struggle with money, but he feels like he worked his butt off and cleaned up his life by himself - and that they should be able to do the same."
Still, as anyone with a family knows, it's hard putting those principles to effect when dealing with the folks who raised you and grew up with you. A source said:
"Now that Chris is rich, he feels a lot of pressure to bail his family members out of their money woes. He hates to see them struggle, but he doesn't like the expectation that he'll provide for them financially. The whole situation is a strain on Chris."
Sounds like a pretty hard situation indeed!
Hopefully Chris and his family can figure something out - where he won't have to turn his back on them, but also won't have to bail them out all the time.
