TAMPA, Fla., March 5 (UPI) -- Casey Anthony, the Florida mother acquitted of killing her daughter Caylee, says she has little money and lives off "the kindness of those I'm living with."

Anthony revealed her financial status during a bankruptcy hearing in Tampa, WESH-TV, Orlando, reported Tuesday.

Anthony told the judge she had only $484 in cash.

"I don't pay rent. I don't pay utilities. I live off the kindness of those I'm living with. I try to contribute when I can," she said.

She added she had no current offers for a book, movie or interview.

A judge ordered Anthony to attend the Monday afternoon hearing with her creditors after denying a request last week for the hearing to be held in Orlando.

She was led through the front door of the building by attorney Cheney Mason, who shielded her from the throng of photographers.

Among her debts, Anthony owes $500,000 to Jose Baez, one of the attorneys who defended her in her murder trail.
