Former NFL star Shawne Merriman was already facing financial ruin prior to being sued for wrongful death from the family of Playboy employee, Kimberly Fattorini, over her death by an overdose.
Merriman reportedly filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and is currently in the middle of his bankruptcy case, which he originally filed in November 2018, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
“In his petition, Merriman listed having $477,600 in assets and $787,177.05 in liabilities. His assets include a plot of land in San Diego worth $450,000, 2015 Mercedes GLK, $5k in clothes, $5k in personal items, $2,500 in the bank and $15k worth of household items.
His liabilities included $575k owed on mortgages for the plot of land, another $100k relating to the land, unknown amounts to the IRS and back taxes, $46k on a line of credit, $42k in legal bills and $3k over medical bill collections.
His average monthly income is $9,997.13 with expenses totaling $9,007.51.
He earns $3,290 in disability income and another $6,706 from interest and dividends. Merriman said he made $87,449 for 2017 and $40k for 2016.”
Fattorini’s parents are alleging the girl was drugged and possibly assaulted before her death.
Merriman made $22,303,937 during his 8-year career, according to Spotrac.
