When The Checks Stop Coming: NFL’s Warren Sapp Files Bankruptcy

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

Former NFL star Warren Sapp is broke as a joke and has filed for bankruptcy in Florida, reports TMZ.

The 1999 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, who has made a truckload of money during a career that has spanned over 13 seasons, has racked up $6.7 million in debt that include creditors, child support payments to his baby mommas, medical bills and alimony.  The 39-year-old also has to settle his whopping tab with the IRS, which has accumulated to a whopping $942,000.

According to court documents, Sapp says that he has amassed $6.45 million in assets and TMZ has listed a few of them:

– 240 pairs of Jordan sneakers and sandals
– Large Nude women painting
– Lion skin rug (female – lioness)
– Nike golf clubs
– De Grisogono watch (scratch on crystal, nicks and scratches on band)
– A boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali

Sapp also says that he lost one of his most valuable and cherished possessions — his 2002 Super Bowl ring from his days as a Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Currently, Sapp makes a reported $45,000 a month from the NFL Network and his contract with the company expires in August of this year.  He is uncertain at this point as to whether his contract will be renewed for another go-round.

Hmmm…wonder what a large nude women painting will fetch these days?
