Antonio Brown just can’t seem to stay away from controversy during this offseason.
The Oakland Raiders wide receiver finally got through the whole helmet fiasco, only to find himself in headlines again because he’s facing a lawsuit from a chef who said he hasn’t paid a crazy overdue $38K bill.
“Stefano Tedeschi — who goes by the name “The Sports Chef” — filed suit in Osceola (Florida) County on July 30, claiming that Brown’s balance of $38,521.20 remains unpaid.
Brown rented an Orlando-area mansion and hired the chef to prepare food for multiple days, a culinary show and other services for nearly 50 Pro Bowl teammates and many other party guests, Tedeschi told ESPN in an interview Wednesday.
Brown wrongfully terminated the agreement and did not allow Tedeschi to retrieve his equipment and food from the premises, the lawsuit states. A Brown associate told Tedeschi not to make eye contact with Brown on his way out, Tedeschi told ESPN.
Tedeschi claimed that Brown later offered to pay Tedeschi in social media advertising, which Tedeschi said he didn’t accept.”
Brown’s attorney, Darren Heitner, responded to the lawsuit, saying only, “We expect to be filing a motion to dismiss the complaint and will let the filing speak for itself.”
Just yet another issue that AB has to deal with before he actually plays a game for the Raiders.
