We’re not sure how Mickey Rourke is going to wrestle his way out of this one! The Academy-Award-nominated actor is being accused of owing his landlord at 114 Franklin Street $30,000 in back payments for his rent, plus $10,000 in damages to the apartment, the New York Post reports.

The lawsuit claims Rourke rented the two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit from Crosstown Realty Holdings from November 2014 until December 2016, but stopped making rent payments in October 2016. He also is accused of leaving holes in the walls, breaking the lock on the front door, damaging the bathtub and installing “disco light features” in the ceilings that were extremely difficult to dismantle.

Reps for Rourke did not return the Post’s request for comment.

This is not the first time Rourke has gotten in trouble with his landlord. In 1994, he was kicked out of his Plaza Hotel room after he allegedly caused $20,000 worth of damage.  [NYP]
