Forgery allegations arise in Dez Bryant jewelry lawsuit

Dez Bryant AP

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has resolved one of the lawsuits against him arising from the purchase of jewelry for which he allegedly didn’t pay.  In the other one, the lawyer for the plaintiff claims that someone forged Bryant’s signature.

According to WFAA.com, a motion was filed claiming that the signature that purports to be Bryant’s on answers to written questions regarding the alleged debts isn’t Bryant’s.

The jeweler seeks a variety of sanctions, including $15,000 in attorneys’ fees.

But that’s a drop in the bucket.  The jeweler seeks roughly $600,000 from Bryant.

    It’s just jewelry.
    It must be the easiest job in the world to be a jewelry salesman and separate these chumps from their $$
    Like candy from a baby.

    God what an idiot.

    “My signature was forged” is the low-tech version of “my Twitter account was hacked.”

    If you want real jewelry, try winning a super bowl.

    At what point does he get the “Turd” distinction?

    I admit it. I forged his signature to feed my bling addiction.

    Hey that’s not my signature on those car loan papers, the caddy is my brothers. just leave me alone!

  9. melonnhead says: Aug 4, 2011 11:15 PM

    This makes no sense whatsoever. Really fishy considering the PFT report from March that:

    “The loan apparently was arranged by Bryant’s adviser, David Wells. Hunt claims that Wells said he “needed the jewelry, tickets and loan money to show Bryant that he could perform as his agent and to keep him from listening to other agents’ offers.”

    How much do you want to bet that David Wells signed Dez’s name to that document? My reply then was “Seems to me it’s Wells’ debt.” and I stick by it.

    This just keeps gettin’ better.

    So what’s the story. Dez can’t write or sign his name now?

  11. richm2256 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:18 PM

    Does the store have a video camera?

    Yes = problem solved.

  12. richm2256 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:19 PM

    And how come Bryant never mentioned “forged signature” BEFORE?

  13. jcg23 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:22 PM

    Looks like the guy saw him being sued in the other one and went for a pay day. This should be fun.

  14. Soulman45 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:25 PM

    Just another outlaw trying to stay out of jail. I give him 5 years he will be doing 5 to 10 behind bars.

    have you guys even read the post? Bryant isnt the one claiming his signature was forged the guy suing him is saying on questions suppose to answered by Bryant for the court obviously werent because it wasnt his signature on the paperwork. Bryant is the defendant not the plantiff.

  17. macjacmccoy says: Aug 5, 2011 12:04 AM

    So he is pretty much breaking the rules and doing what ever he wants again. The kid has problem with authority and telling the truth. He doesnt seem to be able to control himself. Hes gonna have major problems with Goodell in the near future. Pac Man 2.

  18. duanethomas says: Aug 5, 2011 12:05 AM

    People….David Wells the advisor to Dez forged his signature. Plain and Simple. Case closed.

    Read the article again. “the lawyer for the plaintiff claims that someone forged Bryant’s signature.” The “plaintiff” is the guy that’s suing Bryant for the money. You’re welcome.

  20. Andre's Johnson says: Aug 5, 2011 12:18 AM

    I think it’s possible that Dez Bryant is mentally retarted.

    Holy crap it’s simple reading comprehension, people! I weep for the future of this country.

    —————————————————————Man, if ever an ID was the perfect fit, your’s is it!

    I DID read the article, moron, and I know that the jewler’s lawyer is saying the signature was forged.

    My question AGAIN, simpleton, is:
    Why didn’t Dez Bryant say that he didn’t sign any papers for that jewlery, back in March when this happened? The jeweler said there was signed paperwork, why didn’t Dez Bryant say THEN that the papers were forged?

    ….LMAO “say sumthyn else H8rs”!…..Bet yall money u guys would tho cuz its Dallas!….(there allll eagles fans)!..hardy harhAR HAR!

    Does the forgery match the signature of a former teamate’s uninsured mariage proposal envelope?

  25. cmarsh64 says: Aug 5, 2011 3:10 AM

    If someone Forged Bryant’s signature then why are they going after Dez? Don’t most if not all Jewelry stores have cameras? If the impostor signed Bryants signature wasn’t ID required to get a loan for the Jewelry? Seems like another Celeb getting taken to court for a quick payday.
    Whenever your being sued the attorney does your talking not the client,Dez was more than likely told by his attorney to say nothing.

  26. 1bigtex says: Aug 5, 2011 5:13 AM

    Could it be that Bryant’s lawyer or advisor signed the responses for him since they just might have “power of attorney” to do so in this case? Don’t know about any other posters, but I have given “power of attorney” to others to sign for me on more than one occasion. It’s not unusual nor is it a big deal. Could it be that the lawyer who runs this blog should recognize that and perhaps, maybe even mention it?

    No way!!! Wild speculation drives alot more traffic. Clicks are the only things that count.

  27. scudbot says: Aug 5, 2011 5:53 AM

    If you’re Dez Bryant an agent’s competence is assessed by the availability of bling, percs, rims, free cash money and a total lack of ethics. Don’t even think it has to do with being dumb, either. Dez Bryant’s Wondelic score was 2.67x higher than the score achieved by Philly’s new backup QB.

    Girls wear lots of jewelry.

  29. istateyourname says: Aug 5, 2011 7:09 AM

    They need that guy from Pawn Stars with the magnifying glass in the suitcase to come down and take a look at it. He’ll know who signed it.

  30. wags155 says: Aug 5, 2011 7:36 AM

    Damn you guys are dumb. This is not talking about a forged document that dealt with the sale of any jewelry. This is talking about a list of questions that is sent to the defendant in response to the plaintiffs claims. Plaintiff is claiming that this document has been forged.

  31. melonnhead says: Aug 5, 2011 8:49 AM

    Why didn’t Dez Bryant say that he didn’t sign any papers for that jewlery, back in March when this happened? The jeweler said there was signed paperwork, why didn’t Dez Bryant say THEN that the papers were forged?

    —————————————————————

    Because the papers are OBVIOUSLY a fact-finding questionnaire that was sent to Dez by the court between then and now, not a document that shows that Dez actually bought the jewelry. I mean it only says so in the article that you either didn’t care to read or were too stupid to comprehend. Moron, indeed.

    “In written answers to the court, Bryant admits to owing for only some of that jewelry. The problem, according to a motion filed by Beth Ann Blackwood, the jeweler’s attorney, is that the signature attesting to the answers is forged.”

  32. melonnhead says: Aug 5, 2011 9:06 AM

    Could it be that Bryant’s lawyer or advisor signed the responses for him since they just might have “power of attorney” to do so in this case?

    ————————————————————-

    Usually you’d have to add something under the signature like “Jim Hassenfeffer, attorney-in-fact for Dez Bryant” and possibly include a copy of the document that grants power of attorney.

  33. melonnhead says: Aug 5, 2011 9:24 AM

    ————————————————————–

    Seems to me this David Wells guy went to this Eleow Hunt guy and told him that Dez Bryant wanted jewelry, loans and tickets, and that Wells needed Hunt to provide them so that he (Wells) could show that he would be a good agent for Bryant. This is supposed to have happened over a 17 month period before Bryant was drafted. Since you probably couldn’t squeeze $100 out of Wells’ wallet, they are going after the guy with the $8.5 million contract.

    The ring was insured, and the insurer investigated the ensuing “I lost it” claim by the woman he sent it to, which is what led to the woman’s father giving up the ring.

  35. ezwriter69 says: Aug 5, 2011 11:40 AM

    The dude can’t write, truly, he’s totally illiterate, somebody had to answer the questions for him… the issue is that the answers and the signature don’t match, and the plain fact is Dez cannot write, he’s learned to sign his name, but he cannot write, cannot read, he’s totally, comprehensively illiterate, so someone else had to write the answers for him. Seriously.

  36. melonnhead says: Aug 5, 2011 12:24 PM

    ———————————————————-

    No, the issue is that the signature on the document doesn’t match his known signature, or what they think is his known signature. Could be that the signature on the court document is actually Bryant’s signature and they’re comparing it to a signature they have on a document of sale that may not be his signature. The style a person uses when writing for others to read is often different from how one writes their signature.

  37. zeussuperman says: Aug 5, 2011 1:22 PM

    It’s good to see that Dez Bryants lawyer reads PFT.

    Don’t know why a lawyer would choose a screen name as dumb as “Melonnhead” though.

  38. dennisg40 says: Aug 5, 2011 8:45 PM

    It the man selling the jewerly was honest I don’t see how he thought he could benefit through an ordinary lawsuit.

    Even if he wins in Texas he has won nothing and he will have a hard time collecting anything. I personally see the Jewelery salesman as a con artist and crook trying to operate on credit selling “so called thousands and thousands of dollars worth of bling” and so called “credit”.
