Casey Anthony Reportedly 'Bored' With Life, 5 Years After Acquittal in Murder of 2-Year-Old Daughter
Five years after Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder charges in the death of her young daughter, the 30-year-old once considered “the most hated woman in America” is reportedly bored with the life she leads.
Without a steady job or much of a social life, Anthony “sort of lives like an old person, on a fixed income without much going on in her life,” a source told People.
“She's bored, and she complains about boredom all the time,” the source said.
Still residing in South Florida, Anthony largely relies on members of her legal team for financial support and to be set up on dates, People wrote.
Though she started a photography business, Case Photography, Anthony “has done very few projects” and allegedly stages paparazzi-style photo ops that she tries to sell to media outlets when she needs money, sources told the magazine.
"She gets up each day, hangs around, checks the internet, takes some pictures, and doesn't do much,” someone reportedly close to Anthony said. “She can't hold a real job, and she doesn't really make a lot of friends, for obvious reasons. When people find out about her history, they usually bail on her. She's 30, with very few friends her age.”
"She's got enough money to live, but not enough to really do anything," a source said.
Anthony also no longer maintains relationships with her parents, only occasionally speaking with her mother, Cindy, People wrote.
“She doesn’t talk to her dad at all,” an insider said. Her father, George, had been accused by Anthony's attorney of abusing his daughter and it was insinuated that his late granddaughter may have actually been his child. George Anthony denied the allegations.
Anthony also no longer speaks to her brother, Lee, whom she accused of molestation at the trial. He also denied Anthony's claim. Lee has since married his longtime girlfriend, Molly Parker, and has had a baby boy, but his sister was not invited to the wedding.
Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was found dead in December 2008 after she was reported missing five months earlier by her grandparents.
Prosecutors said Anthony, who was pictured partying in the days after her daughter’s disappearance, murdered the toddler and hid her body in the woods. Defense attorneys said the child drowned in the family’s swimming pool.
Despite what many said was a cut and dry case against Anthony, the young mom was found not guilty.
A former member of Anthony’s defense team has since claimed that Anthony’s trial attorney, Jose Baez, said Anthony was guilty of murdering Caylee.
“Baez had told me that Casey murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere," Dominic Casey, a former private investigator on Anthony’s defense team, said in an affidavit filed during Anthony’s bankruptcy case.
He also accused Baez of offering his legal services to Anthony in exchange for sex.
Baez denied the allegations, saying in a statement: “I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony. I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever. I have always conducted my practice consistent with the high ethical standards required of members of the Florida Bar. My representation of Ms. Anthony was no exception.
“Legal action is forthcoming,” he added.
