“Im not broke,” he answered his a smile when asked about his financial status.
But, despite not being broke, Bolt said, “It has definitely put a damper on me. It was for my future. Everybody knows I have three kids and still looking after my parents.”
Bolt’s lawyer reported that his client’s account had a balance of greater than US$12 million at the end of October 2022, but by the end of the year, only US$12,000 was left, indicating a loss of over US$12 million.
Bolt said base on the comments in the public domain, he is as “confused as the public” as to what happened.

Who’s even entertaining such a thought at a time like this? Further more to even publish such nonsense is a shame!!! Disrespectful to this man & his achievements, I hate to see it!!!

How bolt fi broke unuh a ediot,a day dem want d4m na go live fi see dat
He’s not broke but he worked hard for his money ,it was earned not given freely.
So what if he’s broke he’s still young & it’s his money it wasn’t given to him he *earns* it
Not broke but kasi a wonder is she made the right decision going for the bag.
He is worth over $90 mill
Swear some a unu jamaican need to go back a school if unu think 12 million us is going break the man
Puma alone paid him $10 million a year, so he’s not broke, but that $12 million was his retirement money. He should have invested with Berkshire Hathaway. Sad this is what Bolt gets for being loyal to a Jamaican company Stocks and Securities Ltd. that did nothing but rob him.
Of course he is not broke; however, he needs to get back his hard earned money.
Darrian Gordon That’s only a rumour. The amount on his current Puma contract was not published.
Brent Robinson Puma contract is 140 mil us per year
Even if that $12M was all of his money he still has a contract with Puma and other companies paying him millions. He’ll make back the $12M in a few years.
