Eddie Montgomery, one half of the duo Montgomery Gentry, has filed for bankruptcy protection, according to reports.

Sources tell the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky that the Montgomery Gentry star is selling his restaurant and home.

His lawyer, Jamie Harris, has confirmed the news, telling the publication his client is filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy.

He says, “It is very common with individuals dealing with divorce and business closure to have to seek out bankruptcy relief.”

The news comes after a troubled year for the singer, who closed his Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse and divorced his wife Tracy in 2012.

In bankruptcy papers, obtained by the newspaper, Montgomery lists $13.4 million in debts.
