Warren Sapp Files for Bankruptcy
Future NFL Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp has recently filed for bankruptcy, claiming to owe more than 6.7 million to creditors and in back child support and alimony, with only 6.45 million to his name.
TMZ.com reported the news first yesterday, right after Sapp filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Florida.
Sapp reportedly owes almost $1 million in debt to the IRS, and has an asset list that includes 240 pairs of Jordan shoes, reportedly worth about $6500.
He has a De Grisogono watch worth $2,250, a lion skin rug worth $1200, and even a boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali.
He claims to have lost his 2002 Super Bowl ring that he won with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his 1991 national championship ring that he won with the University of Miami Hurricanes.
The 6-2 300-plus pounder from Orlando had an illustrious football career, from being selected to the Florida High School Association All-Century Team, to winning a national championship and being a first-team All-America member in college, to being a seven-time Pro-Bowler in the NFL, where he played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then the Oakland Raiders.
His post-career life has included being a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” as well as being an analyst for the NFL Network.
Warren Sapp has not yet spoken on his bankruptcy.
