Beyond the split with his wife, the property comes on the market as Kane struggles with ongoing financial issues. He declared bankruptcy in January, with reported gambling losses of $1.5 million. At the time of the filing, he had assets of $10.2 million and liabilities of over $26.8 million.
In July, Anna filed for divorce, and a couple of weeks later, she took to Instagram and accused Kane of wagering on his team’s own games, a claim the NHL has said it is investigating. If true, it could result in Kane being banished from the league. While the investigation continues, recent reports indicate his own teammates don’t really want Kane to return to the Sharks.
Kane took to Twitter and called the claims from his estranged wife “completely false.”
All messiness aside, the home now on the market is a clean winner.
