First came reports that a lawsuit had been filed against Dallas Cowboys’ receiver Dez Bryant, claiming that he owed over $200,000 to a New York jewelry company for unpaid items. Then another lawsuit, filed in Tarrant County, came to light, which claimed that Bryant owed more than $300,000 to another party for unpaid jewelry and tickets to sporting events.
Now, it’s been reported that another complainant has filed suit against Bryant in the continuation of what has been an altogether odd string of stories surrounding the highly-talented young receiver--and according to this latest report, Bryant’s problem with debtors may go back to his college days at Oklahoma State.
According to court documents, Bryant was sued for $3,479.80 in December of 2010, for unpaid rent at the Stillwater, Oklahoma house he shared with a friend.
Bryant was suspended by the NCAA after three games in 2009 for allegedly lying to investigators about his relationship with Deion Sanders. He lost his final appeal in November of 2009, after which, Campbell says, he jumped town.
“The guy just left and didn’t pay his rent,” Campbell said. “It’s that simple.”
The initial suit was dropped in January after, according to Campbell, Bryant’s lawyers agreed to pay the money owed within two weeks after the suit was dropped. However, Campbell said that no money was ever received.
“We never received anything,” Campbell said, “and that’s been months ago.”
Campbell added that his company was planning on filing another suit against Bryant.
