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.

I guess the upside of this story is that this dog murdering butthole will be broke about two minutes after he retires from football.

People still talking sh!+ are dumb. He did the crime, he did the time, he's paid his taxes, is paying child support, paid off debt and people still want to go on about the past. Ben Roethlisberger was accused of raping two women and wormed his way out. Robert Blake had his wife killed and no one talks about him. Vick is trying to get back up and is but people still try to kick him back down. Ridiculous.

i have little doubt that he will tear through the money he is making with the new contract in short time. most pro athletes are broke in less than 5 years after they played their last game. they are accustomed to spending what they make and rarely understand their pro careers are often very brief and that the cash will just keep on rolling in. most of these guys are naturally dumb jocks and paid little if any attention in school. then, they find out the hard way how important school really is.
