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.

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.

This article makes no sence, what ever he earned is subject to a subtantial amount of taxes, is that classified as "blowing away"

Some of you are idiots. He spent all his money paying his bills. How could you possibly say he blows money if hes spending it on bills?? He had to keep his lawyers paid, an accountant is vitally important in this industry, he paid living expenses, child support etc.. If he was blowing his money on cars and poppin bottles ya'lld be complaining that he's not using it to pay for more important things. Yall kill me.

You guys are idiots. Did you even read the article or just the headline? The money went to taxes, creditors, and lawyers. He's not splurging.

Yeay, at least Mike Vick owns up to his debts. He could have easily declared Chapter 7 BK like the rest of deadbeats in the USA. He's at least paying back over 50% of what was owed. That's a lot better that people bailing out on their credit card debts and mortgages these days.
