Michael Vick

I've Spent $29 MILLION

In Four Years

Michael Vick
has blown through nearly $30 million since filing for bankruptcy in 2008 -- nearly 95% of his total income -- TMZ has learned.

According to legal docs filed in his bankruptcy case, Vick made $31 million since he went belly up -- that includes his Eagles salary and various endorsements and other business ventures.

The math is pretty simple -- Vick had to pay a total of $29.6 mil -- of that, $10.9 went to taxes, $9.2 mil went to creditors, $2.7 went to lawyers and accountants, and the rest is for various things, including child support and living expenses.

All tolled, Vick is now left with around $1.5 mil. That's nothing to sneeze at, but considering what he made it's pretty shocking.

Things are looking up for the NFLer. Vick signed a 6 year, $100 million contract in 2011 ... with almost $40 mil in guaranteed money, so he won't be poor -- in rich terms -- for much longer.

So what? It's his money. Your reporting this story as if it's earth ****tering. Are you surprised by this? I'd be more shocked if you told me after all these years, he still had the $30 million or the majority of it. His God given talent is to be athletic and play football, not be smart.

"...$29.6 mil -- of that, $10.9 went to taxes, $9.2 mil went to creditors, $2.7 went to lawyers and accountants, and the rest is for various things, including child support and living..."

Did you guys read the article (on this lame website by the way)? He didn't "blow" his money, he had to spend it.

And wow he made a mistake but now he's a good guy.

Vick should be in jail and not playing football for what he did to his dogs.

Mike Vick has no child support unless of course you mean't to say "family support" since he has no kids outside his relationship with his fiance. TMZ stereotyping? What's new?

He could of gave up and live a secluded life but God gave him another chance and people still believe in his talents. I'm just saying out of all the highest degree of crimes, he was caught running a dog fighting ring. I'm happy he left all that ghetto hood activities behind him. He's not perfect. He's a working progress like everyone else.
