Trevon Diggs makes a lot of money compared to the average American, yet he’s come up as the subject of a lawsuit from a former landlord who is claiming unpaid rent and late fees.
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, a lawsuit filed in Denton County notes that the Dallas Cowboys cornerback signed a one-year lease for a home in Frisco, Texas, and only paid rent for the first month.
The landlord, Mary Yadegar, had agreed to rent the space to the player at a monthly rate of $5,500 but that’s all she’s received since, while Diggs moved out in July last year “in lieu of eviction.”
Yadegar is suing for $33,500 in unpaid rent and late fees, as well as $45.45 fortnightly for yard maintenance, $3,400 for damage repairs, and $531.15 for carpet cleaning because the carpets were “soiled beyond normal wear and tear.”
Diggs earned $1.723 million last season, having gotten drafted out of the second round in 2020. He’s set for a significant increase next season, when he will make $4.843 million. That he’s skipped on his rent is indeed puzzling as he could easily afford not to.
The 24-year-old was the league’s interceptions leader in 2021, as well as a First Team All-Pro. He made his second Pro Bowl last season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
