Warren Sapp, former NFL defensive star, is seeing his Orlando mansion go up for auction as part of his bankruptcy case.

Sapp filed for Chapter 7 back in April, saying he owed $6.7 million to creditors, but didn't have the assets to back it up. Although a Florida judge discharged his bankruptcy case in September, he's still looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of tax debt, child support, and alimony. His $7 million dollar mansion will now be put up for sale as a means to an end.

The 10,000 square-foot house, located in the upscale Lake Butler Sound neighborhood, was built in 2005 and includes four bedrooms, a pool with a water slide, a movie theater, and a two-story wine cellar, among other amenities.

Sapp told reporters that he hadn't wanted to file for Chapter 7, but had no other options.

"Do you think I wanted to declare bankruptcy?" he said. "Do you think, if there was any other way possible, I would have done it? It was either this or go to jail."
