NFL Players Being Sued After They Refused To Pay Back Friend Who Covered Their $10K Bill
Imagine being worth millions of dollars and spending thousands at a club, only to have your credit card declined. That happened to two NFL players, but luckily for them, there friend was there to cover the bill.
Only problem here is that they promised to pay that friend back and never did. Now they have a lawsuit on their hands.
“Player #1 is Detroit Lions defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson — a 2nd round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft who signed a 4-year $5.2 million contract.
Player #2 is Tampa Bay Bucs lineman Caleb Benenoch — a 5th round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft who signed a 4-year $2.59 million contract.
According to court docs filed in L.A., the guys invited Richard Harrington to Hyde nightclub on the Sunset Strip back in March and ran up a $9,332 bill.
But when it came time to pay, Harrington claims the players’ credit cards were BOTH declined.
Instead, they asked Harrington to foot the bill — which he did — and they promised to pay him back. Harrington claims they each sent him $2,000 but that didn’t cover everything.”
