How should I handle boyfriend not wanting to show me his financial statements?

I have been seriously dating my boyfriend, we talk marriage, we are both in our late 30s never married before. I am relatively well off, own multiple properties.

I am relatively well off, own multiple properties. He rents a cheap room, has no expenses other than gas and food and the rent, works full time, but is always griping that he's broke and lately I have been giving him money.

We've been fighting a lot lately because I accuse him of hiding his money or else lying about his financial situation. He never pays for our dates, I don't know how he can be that broke when he makes about $2400 after taxes each month and his rent is $600 and the other expenses are food and gas yet I pay for my half on dinners or else cover his too and now he asks for gas money and little by little more.

I finally asked that he show me his bank statements because he said I am insulting him by picking apart his bank statements. I just don't want to be suckered and used. His response was that he can't show me them, that I either believe him or think he is a liar. How should I proceed? Do I just blindly take his word on it?
Update: Correction: Should read: I am picking apart his finances, not bank statements.
Update 2: What bothers me is he's making it look like I'm the one into money, pretending I"m embarrassing and insulting him about his financial situation when I have never taken a penny from him and on top of it I'm the one giving him money!
