Malik Jackson in lawsuit with West Coast Customs

Eagles, Malik Jackson

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Malik Jackson became one of the NFL’s highest-paid defensive players when he signed his three-year, $30 million contract with the franchise in 2019. He then spent his paycheck to facelift two of his cars at the famous West Coast Customs car shop in California. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out well for the one-time Pro Bowler.

In a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports, Jackson claims back in July 2019 … he reached a deal with the famous California custom car shop to flip two of his Chevys into sick hot rods.

The problem? Jackson says more than a year later … the shop still has his cars — and wants WAY MORE cash than they initially quoted him on for the job.

The Eagles talent claimed that for one of the builds, a Chevy Gasser, he agreed to pay $200,000 to have the car rebuilt and customized. However, when the shop charged him the bill, it was more than $37,000 above the agreed-upon price.

Jackson also cried foul as the other car he brought in, a Chevy Cruiser, the same shop charged him more than $150,000 above the agreed-upon price as well.

The former Tennessee Volunteer is now suing the shop for breach of contract and is asking for well more than $187,000 in damages. West Coast Customs hasn’t released a statement regarding the matter since then.

The Super Bowl 50 will try to leave the dispute off the field as he is set to report to the Eagles’ training camp in a few days. Jackson and the rest of his team will open the 2020 season as they face the rebuilding Washington Football Team on September 13 at FedEx Field.
