Former NFL star Brian Urlacher is suing a hair transplant company based in Houston which stands accused of using his image and likeness on their website without permission from him, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
The NFL Hall of Famer filed a lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Cook County against the Houston Hair Transplant Company back in October and is seeking a $50,000 compensation, which they should be happy to pay as he probably could have asked for a lot more.
According to the suit, “The post deceptively led potential patients to believe that Mr. Urlacher had an affiliation with, or received restoration treatment from, Defendant Houston Hair.”
The former Chicago Bears LB wore a bald head for all of his 13 years in the league but showed up to WGN Morning News in 2016 sporting a head full of hair. He told the show he’d undergone a restoration procedure in November of 2015.
Urlacher, who is a spokesperson for another company called Restore, had his procedure done via the Follicular Unit Extraction method.
He is featured on their website as a success story along with another Hall of Famer, Deion Sanders, as well as other professional athletes.
Apart from the aforementioned $50K, Urlacher is seeking court costs, attorney fees, and punitive damages.
