UPDATED: Here's Bryant McKinnie's response to the $375,000 lawsuit filed against him, via the Baltimore Sun.
"I got no papers, I was never served," McKinnie said. "I just called my lawyer about this because this is a bogus story. I just read the article. He was working at those places, and he's tried to borrow money from me. People can put anything out there. What strip club gives you a $375,000 tab? It just sounds stupid to me. I've never heard of this in my life. This is bogus to me. For it to be even reported is stupid to me."
Now, we've got an even more outlandish report that could land McKinnie in court.
According to NBC's Miami affiliate, via NFL.com, a man who happens to be the father of rapper Trick Daddy has filed a lawsuit against McKinnie, claiming the offensive lineman owes him $375,000 for money spent at south Florida strip clubs.
Charles “Pop” Young alleges he loaned McKinnie the money between February 2009 and September 2010. According to Young, McKinnie promised to pay him back but never did.
“In the past, we discussed this amount listed above once the NFL season starts and I began receiving my payroll checks. I hereby promise to speak to Mr. Young about this matter by October 5, 2010 and make arrangements to have this balance paid in full by December 1, 2010,” McKinnie wrote, according to a promissory note provided by Young in the lawsuit.
Originally, McKinnie was supposed to make a base salary of $3.2 million but agreed to take a $1 million paycut before the season. McKinnie's wages also are being garnished this season for $4.5 million that he owed for a loan that he took out during the lockout.
