Antonio Brown Gets Dropped By His Lawyer Over Not Paying Legal Bills
Nobody seems to want to be around Antonio Brown these days.
The free agent wide receiver faced more bad news this week after his lawyer dropped him amid a nasty battle with his baby mama Chelsie Kyriss.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Florida judge gave Brown 30 days to find a new lawyer after he stated Antonio’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, can withdraw from representing him in a legal battle with his former landlord.
It was back in December when Darren filed documents asking for permission to drop Antonio accusing him of refusing to pay up on legal bills. The lawyer accuses Antonio of having “failed substantially to fulfill an obligation to the lawyer regarding the lawyer’s services and has been given reasonable warning that the lawyer will withdraw unless the obligation is fulfilled.” He said Brown owes him money for services provided in the lawsuit.
He added Antonio blocked him from calling him on the phone or texting. He continued by saying it was impossible to represent him.
Brown’s lawsuit stems from an incident last year where the landlord Vladimir Kirsanov and Aqualina 1402 LLC sued Brown on claims that he damaged his $7 million Miami condo.
His other legal battle involves the mother of his child, who he is trying to evict from his home. The two just recently had a showdown in front of police where it showed Brown hurling obscenities at Kyriss, cursing at cops, and throwing a ‘bag of dicks’ in the direction of his baby mama.
The two are set to face off in court.
