Though he’s having a hard time finding a new team, receiver Terrell Owens continues to attract attention.
But not in a good way.
Per the Associated Press, an Alabama business has sued Owens and his cousin for failing to pay expenses arising from a lease termination agreement at their martini bar.
Walker Partners Ltd. allegedly entered into a lease agreement with Minnifield Owens Lounges in May 2005. The company claims that, when the lease was terminated, Minnifield Owens Lounges agreed to pay past due rent, utility costs, and other operating expenses.
Owens and his cousin allegedly failed to do so, and so Walker Partners Ltd seeks $12,000 in damages and $3,000 in attorneys’ fees.
Given the amount in controversy and the fact that Owens currently is trying to distance himself from any suggestion that he’s not a great guy, it’s amazing that he didn’t ensure that this situation was taken care of.
