FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The so-called "Affluenza Mom" says she's broke.

Earlier this week, Tonya Couch filed an Affidavit of Indigency, claiming that she's been unemployed for more than a year due to her notoriety.

In the filing, Couch, 52, claims that her one and only asset is a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck valued at between $1500 and $2000.

Couch is awaiting trial on charges of hindering apprehension and money laundering in connection with helping her son Ethan flee to Mexico after he had violated his probation.

Couch, who has been in and out of jail for more than three years, has been behind bars since April following her third failed drug test.
