Adrien Broner Claims He Has $13 In His Bank Account, Judge Throws Him In Jail Days After He Flashed Money On Instagram (VIDEO)
Another day, another court appearance for Adrien Broner.
A Cleveland judge ordered Broner to be taken into custody today for contempt of court, stemming from a 2018 lawsuit regarding Broner’s assault on a woman at a nightclub. Judge Nancy Margaret Russo had grown tired of his antics, because Broner has failed to meet a number of deadlines where he was to demonstrate why he hasn’t paid the $830K judgement against him.
As he his prone to do, Broner flashed a ton of cash on Instagram just this week, but claimed to only have $13 in cash when he filed court documents.
Broner offered this justification for the above video:
“I’m answering the questions,” Broner said. “That’s all I did have on me. I got rich friends. I do. I got wealthy friends that take care of me.
“[The money I’ve been posting] is getting sent to me [by] my friends.”
The judge asked why his rich friends would just be sending him wads of cash:
“I got a big heart. I’ll show you I got a big heart. And when I did have money and everybody asked me for money, I gave it to them. And now that they see that I need help if I ask for it…”
The judge wanted to know which friends:
“My friends! I can ask Gervonta Davis, Al Haymon, I can ask Stephen Espinoza, I can ask anybody for money.
“They sending it through the bank and it’s coming into my account and I’m spending it…I don’t got no money, I get sent money and spend it, I gotta spend it on bills.”
Judge Russo wasn’t moved and promptly ordered Broner to remain in jail until he provides complete and accurate information about his finances.
“Mr. Broner has continually defied every court ordered I’ve given,” Russo said during the hearing. “The jig is up today.”
