Is actor Mickey Rourke backsliding to his bad boy days?
“The Wrestler” star owes the owner of his former Tribeca loft $30,000 in unpaid rent and nearly $10,000 in damages– including the unauthorized installation of “disco light fixtures” in the apartment ’s 16-foot ceiling.
Rourke – who was tossed out of Donald Trump ’s Plaza Hotel in 1994 for allegedly trashing his Central Park suite – stopped paying rent for his sprawling, floor-through pad at 114 Franklin St. in Oct. 2016, according to a new lawsuit filed by the landlord.
The 64-year-old actor missed the next two months of payments until his lease ran out on Dec. 31, 2016, the Manhattan Supreme Court suit says.
Rourke also left holes in the walls, broke the lock to the front door, damaged the bathtub and installed “disco light fixtures” that required electrical work to dismantle, the suit says.
The retired boxer first rented the two-bedroom, two-bathroom in November 2014 from Crosstown Realty Holdings under an 18-month lease.
He then extended the lease in April 2016. Six months later he stopped making rental payments, the suit says.
His rep did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
Rourke allegedly broke furniture in his $5,000-a-night suite at the Plaza Hotel in the 1990s, causing at total $20,000 in damages.
