Late movie legend Patrick Swayze's adopted sister is allegedly a serial criminal and alcoholic who got booted from a sober-living house!

Those are the shocking claims of Bambi Swayze's ex-husband, Don Franzen, in court documents from 2017 — exclusively obtained by — detailing her multiple shoplifting arrests and rehab stays that he says left him in financial ruin at the time.

Don charged in court papers that Korean-born Bambi, 53, has a "long history of abuse of alcohol and mental instability" — including a string of shoplifting busts and a DUI arrest in 2017.

Don claimed she came to him after she was kicked out of a sober-living house and said, "she would be living in her boyfriend's car!"

Although her ex claimed he was "sinking" in over $80,000 in debt, the judge ordered him to pay Bambi $2,500 a month. Bambi could not be reached for comment.

Sadly, the Swayze family is more fractured than ever a decade after the star's passing, as his brother Sean recently slammed his widow, Lisa Niemi, to for making shocking accusations in a new biopic.

"She has been grubbing for money since he died. Anything that makes her money she'll tell the press," Sean told exclusively.

Lisa had claimed Patrick's late mother abused him as a child, which the rest of the family vehemently denies.
