Michael Vick Pays Back $17 Million to Creditors and Tax Collectors
Michael Vick can rest easy because he no longer owes anyone money.
According to TMZ, the former NFL quarterback was more than $17 million in debt, but a judge has closed his bankruptcy case since he's paid it all back.
After the infamous dog-fighting scandal in 2008 derailed his pro football career and ended his endorsement deals, Vick was forced to file bankruptcy. Once he was reinstated in 2009, he reportedly made $50 million from the NFL before officially retiring on February 3, 2017.
Vick owed money to Bank of America, for taxes, and several other creditors. After making his final payment back in November of 2017, TMZ says Vick was granted a discharge and final decree from the judge over the case.
