Casey Anthony is on the run again after being forced to leave her South Florida hiding place last weekend. The location was discovered by private investigators, who used the information to serve her papers for a defamation suit.
Anthony began to fear for her safety and decided to leave the place she has been staying in since she was cleared of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee in July.
It was reported last week that she has been increasingly going out in public undetected because she is said to have put on so much weight she is virtually unrecognizable.
The private investigators who discovered where she has been hiding were said to have been hired by Zenaida Gonzalez, who is suing the 'tot mom' for defamation.
"Casey absolutely flipped out when she found out that private investigators hired by Zenaida Gonzalez, discovered where she was," a source told RadarOnline. "The private investigators were attempting to serve Casey with a subpoena to appear at the trial, which is expected to begin in January. Casey had been venturing out at night and the investigators had been tipped off by people who had seen her."
It was reported last week that she is planning on moving to Costa Rica when her probation is over. She is currently embroiled in a legal battle with Gonzalez after she told police that a woman with a name similar kidnapped Caylee.
People magazine reported that Anthony remains unemployed and has little money, while probation reports show she recently stopped attending counseling sessions.
However, she has apparently started speaking to her estranged mother Cindy in a bid to get their relationship back on track, although she does not speak to her father.
Anthony is also said to be 'annoyed' about having to take the stand again at the Orange County courthouse in January after her attorneys accepted a defamation subpoena.
She is being sued by Zenaida Gonzalez, who shares the name of a fake babysitter Anthony initially told police had kidnapped her daughter. Anthony admitted fabricating that story.
