During an appearance at a department store in Tulsa on Saturday, Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant said that the financial issues that came to light this offseason--more specifically, two lawsuits, which claimed that Bryant owed more than $800,000 for loans, jewelry and sports tickets--were settled.
However, that may not be the case.
"I have a handle on it and it's done," Bryant told the Associated Press on Saturday, via ESPN Dallas. "It's in the past and I'm ready to go ahead from here."
But Beth Ann Blackwood, the attorney representing Eleow Hunt--A Colleyville jeweler and ticket broker, and one of the two complainants who filed suits against Bryant this offseason--said recently that the dispute was not quite settled.
Speaking to ESPN Dallas, Blackwood said that the case was on hold while Bryant’s attorney, Texas State Senator Royce West, was in special session in Austin. The suit brought against Bryant says that the star receiver owes for purchases made dating from his sophomore year at Oklahoma State, and were to be repaid when he received either an NFL or a promotional contract.
According to multiple sources, Bryant has already settled the other suit filed against him this offseason.
