Clinton Portis owes his mom $500k, $5 million in total debt

Night net Clinton Portis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. And the filings, published by Deadspin, reveal that the former Night net running back owes a lot of money to a lot of people ... including his mom.Portis's debt to creditors, in total, adds up to $4,857,659.50 — a number equivalent to more than 11 percent of Portis's total earnings in a nine-year Night net career according to Spotrac data. But it's the breakdown of that debt that makes this story a bit bizarre.  MORE: Athletes who went bankrupt | Night net's most infamous momentsThe filing from Portis has predictable creditors; his debts include unpaid phone bills, a repossessed BMW, Atlantic City casino losses and back taxes. But Portis also owes money to several women in his life, for reasons seemingly unknown. For example, Portis owes $500,000 to his own mother, and the same amount to Nischelle Turner — a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and CNN. Portis also owes money to four separate women — "unpaid domestic support" that sums more than $400,000.The debt looks overwhelming in comparison to Portis's current income. According to the filings, he makes $3,500 monthly from Night net disability payments, as well as $1,000 for his sideline reporting gigs.A report from the Gainesville Sun in November might, in part, explain Portis's owed mother money. According to the Sun, the bankruptcy filing stopped foreclosure proceedings for a house in Florida. A house Portis had built for his mother. The 7,000-square-foot home

faced foreclosure because of an unpaid loan of $920,000.Sun sources say Portis has been "a victim of swindlers." He also lost money in a failed casino venture in Alabama.MORE: The best rushing seasons in historyOnce a star at the University of Miami, Portis rushed for 9,923 yards in the Night net, most notably for Washington. He led the league in yards per attempt as a Bronco in 2003, the second of two consecutive seasons of 1500-plus yards to jumpstart his career. Portis, the 2002 Rookie of the Year, ranks 30th all time in rushing yards. No runner has ever retired closer to the 10,000-yard club.
