Mekhi Phifer net worth: Mekhi Phifer is an American actor who has a net worth of -$1.3 million. Mekhi Phifer was born on December 29, 1974, in Harlem, New York City. He first started to turn heads in the acting world after making a promising feature movie debut as the petty drug dealer, Ronald 'Strike' Dunham, in Spike Lee's urban drama Clockers (1995). With almost no previous experience whatsoever, Mekhi out-acted nearly 1,000 other applicants for the role thanks to his rare charisma and Harlem-streets know-how. Following his breakthrough success, Phifer appeared in the 1995 TV movie, The Tuskegee Airmen, starring opposite Laurence Fishburne. Another powerful performance Phifer gave was in George Tillman Jr.'s comedy drama Soul Food (1997), after which he went on to appear in several teen films like 1998's horror I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and 2001's drama O. Although he was already established as a well-known actor, he didn't land a bona fide hit role until 2002 when he played the role of Future alongside hip-hop star Eminem in the urban biopic 8 Mile. The same year, Phifer earned another big role, but this time on the small screen, as a guest star in the NBC's long-running hit medical series ER. His other notable TV appearances include the Fox crime show Lie to Me (2009-2011) and BBC's Torchwood: Miracle Day. In his career, Mekhi Phifer proved both critics and audiences that he is a well-rounded performer who can successfully perform parts in all cinematic genres, from gritty urban dramas to heartwarming romantic comedies. In May 2014, it was revealed that Mekhi had filed for bankruptcy protection. In the filing, the actor listed assets of just $67,000 and debts of $1.3 million. He further claims that his monthly expenses are $11,000 but his monthly income is only $7500. Much of his debt, roughly $1.2 million, is made of up back taxes owed to the IRS.
