In 2014, startling news shook the National Hockey League to the core, and none of it was positive. About two years ago, Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, saying he had only $50,000 in necessities. Johnson stated his parents were to blame for spending money on present luxuries and gambling on the defenseman' future earnings.
In an effort to get some money back, Johnson is looking to sell one of his two houses. He has one in California and another in Michigan. The one in Michigan is the property Johnson is looking to rid of, which is where his parents live. Johnson also apparently has 4 cars, including 3 BMWs and a Ferrari.
Johnson's parents' are fighting back the potential sale, saying they have an agreement on property for it to be rent free for the next 50 years. They have been in a war with lawyers and using words to fight with since this went public, and there needs to be a resolution to this soon.
What are your thoughts on Jack Johnson? The bankruptcy?
