D'Amico and McClure raised $400,000 for Johnny Bobbitt after he spent his last $20 on gas for them to get home. Bobbitt is now suing the couple, claiming they kept the money for themselves and have spent it on vacations and gambling.

'He's devastated': Every penny of the $400,000 raised for homeless veteran has gone

Johnny Bobbitt  (left) and his lawyer discovered a $400,000 fund set up to help him rebuild his life was depleted Tuesday. Forces veteran Bobbitt captured the heart of the nation when it emerged he gave his last $20 to then stranger Kate McClure (right) to buy gas in November last year. The couple set up a GoFundMe page that raised $400,000. McClure and her partner Mark D'Amico now face accusations they spent the money on themselves. Nine months after the pair set up the fundraising page, Bobbitt's lawyers won control only to discover the account was totally empty. Now, Bobbitt and his lawyers have asked for a forensic accountant to examine the couple's records and determine if they misspent any of the money.
