The inspiration for “Jerry Macguire”, a movie about aggressive professional athlete agents, has filed for bankruptcy this month. According to news sources, he is claiming to have between $1 million and $5 million in professional and personal debts. The formerly famous agent rose in the public eye after representing several professional athletes. A number of years later, life intervened and he is claiming to need Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in order to get back on track financially. His lawyer spoke this week, citing a struggle with alcoholism, his children’s health problems, and a faulty transaction by a former coworker as the primary reasons for his financial decline.
