On Tuesday, July 21, 2009, Stephen Baldwin filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in New York. His wife, Kennya Baldwin, was also named in the petition. He states that he owes more than $2.3 million in debt, and he only owns $1.1 million in real estate. The debt reportedly includes taxes and credit card bills.
As a biography, Kennya Baldwin was born Kennya Deodato in Brazil. Her father is Grammy Award winning musician Eumir Deodato. She works as a graphic designer and lives in Nyack, New York with Stephen and their two children, Alaia and Hailey Rhode.
Kennya and Stephen married in June 1990 after having met on a Subway in New York in 1987.
The bankruptcy is not the beginning of the Baldwins’ financial troubles. On June 12, 2009, another piece of real estate in Rockland County, New York, was foreclosed upon after they got behind almost $825,000 on the mortgage.
