The financial problems continue for Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie as he reportedly faces a $375,000 lawsuit due to accumulated tabs at Miami strip clubs.
Per an NBC Miami report, a lawsuit was filed by Charles “Pop” Young, the father of rap superstar Trick Daddy, for tabs accumulated by McKinnie at various strip clubs between February 2009 and September 2010. Young claims the money was borrowed by McKinnie but never repaid.
Young is looking to recover the owed money plus interest as well as his legal costs through the lawsuit.
McKinnie’s base salary was cut from $3.2 million to $2.2 million less than a week before the start of the regular season. The 33-year-old was also replaced as the starting left tackle by fourth-year lineman Michael Oher, which has hindered McKinnie’s chances of recovering the $1 million in lost salary through incentives that can be reached by playing in 50 percent of the Ravens’ offensive snaps.
The lawsuit reportedly includes a promissory note claimed to be written by McKinnie on Oct. 1, 2010 that suggests Young loaned him the $375,000 in cash.
“In the past we discussed this amount listed above once the NFL season starts and I began receiving my payroll checks,” McKinnie allegedly wrote. “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.”
The 11-year veteran is already having 50 percent of his wages garnished this season as part of a settlement for a lawsuit stemming from a $4.5 million loan taken out during last year’s NFL lockout.
