Micheal Vick is in the news again this week as everyone is monitoring his bankruptcy documents. Recently, it was revealed that he spent thousands just days before heading to prison on items such as a $100,000 S-Class Mercedes to drive his family to and from the jail during visits. Other documents reveal that he is putting his mother, Brenda Boddie’s Virginia home on the market because he can no longer afford the $4700/month mortgage and has hired a local realtor in Virginia to try and sell off the property:
To make matters worse, his mom, Brenda Boddie, won’t earn her $100K income anymore — because she works for Michael’s company, which is now kaput. The home is one of several Vick bought when he blew through more than $18 mil over a couple of years. We reached Vick’s mother at home and she politely declined to speak with us. (Source)
