NEW YORK, November 20. /TASS/. NHL Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson has filed for bankruptcy, local media reported.
In a bankruptcy filing, Jack Johnson claimed assets of $50,000 and debts of more than $10-15 million.
Sources said that 27-year-old Johnson went bankrupt due to his mother’s actions, after he turned over financial control to her in 2008. His mother borrowed $15 million from the bank at high interest rate, but without Johnson’s knowledge and spent all the money for personal needs.
Jack Johnson’s bankruptcy hearing is scheduled to take place January 23.
Under the contract with Columbus, which is valid until 2018, over the next three seasons Johnson is to earn $20 million.
This season, Johnson played 15 games in a regular NHL Championship, having made 7 goal passes.
