Cowboys’ linebacker Keith Brooking was sued by Wells Fargo for around $2 million this week for a pair of unpaid loans, but the 35-year-old veteran has since come out through his agent and denied any wrongdoing in the case.
“These allegations are categorically false and unfounded,” said Pat Dye in a statement, per ESPN Dallas.
Filed in Atlanta, where Brooking spent 11 seasons as a member of the Falcons before coming to Dallas, the suit claims that Brooking took out over $2 million in loans from Wells Fargo in 2008, but as of January of this year he had yet to pay back more than $1.9 million. Further, the suit alleges that Brooking shifted assets in an attempt to avoid repayment, a claim that Brooking’s camp also denies.
“There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support Wells Fargo’s allegations that Keith transferred properties to fraudulently conceal assets,” Dye said.
