I've Spent $29 MILLION

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.

Why would he even WANT to tell the world that he'd gone through $30 million dollars in 4 years. WHAT A JERK!

Im SURE he didn't contribute ONE PENNY to ANY charity that helps abused women and children, or any homeless organizations.

Hmm, Vick kills some dogs and goes to jail, Sarah Palin puts a bullet through a deer and gets put on front page of a magazine.

Disgusting that these people who make 10's of millions of $$ are ALLOWED to go bankrupt!! and we the tax payers are the ones that are paying for that. Then the get to start with a clean slate, no bills or debt and will probably just do it all again.

I love dogs just as much as the next guy. I've had 4 dogs over my lifetime thus far. And let me say, what he did to those dogs was horrible.

However, they are dogs, not people. While it is very sad what he did, some of you act as if he murdered a bus full of children. He served his time, let it go people.

Headlines on most other sites with basically the same stories indicates Michael Vick has "blown" over $20 million. REALLY? Paying your child support payments, lawyers and back taxes are "blowing" money?

Vick made a big mistake and has largely paid for it. Most common people who are hating just haven't gotten caught at their own dirty deeds.
Good on Michael for taking care of business. He's been blessed to have something left for himself. Screw the MF haters!

Practically all of it went towards back taxes, child support, legal fees and other debts. That's not the same as blowing it. Another misleading headline article. Come on yahoo! If the headline was "Michael Vick still in the hole after paying back more than S29 million", it would have still caught your readers' attention

tmz is the new national enquirer. how can you call paying your taxes and paying off your debt, blowing your money? tmz is such a joke, trying to make themselves look like a real news/entertainment organization. they're just a sleazy tabloid like the national enquirer.

don't get me wrong, i think michael vick is an idiot. he deserved what he got for the crime that he committed.
