"The Sopranos" and "GoodFellas" star Lorraine Bracco had declared bankruptcy from having paid her lawyers in her six-year custody battle with ex-boyfriend Harvey Keitel, reports the New York Post. Bracco won full custody of daughter Stella, 13, two years ago. (Keitel currently has open visitation rights with the child.) But, says the paper, "she filed for Chapter 11 protection in White Plains (N.Y.) earlier this week." Bracco told the Post she has paid nearly $2 million in legal fees and that the bankruptcy was necessary "to keep a roof over my kids's heads." She also has an older daughter, Margo, a college junior.
