Oakland Raiders wide receiver is facing a civil lawsuit that claims he didn’t pay a chef for his services during the 2018 Pro Bowl. According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Stefano Tedeschi filed a suit in Osceola County, Florida, claiming that Brown still owed him $38,521.20.
According to the lawsuit Brown rented a mansion and hired Tedeschi to provide the food for over 50 guests. Brown “wrongfully” terminated the agreement and wouldn’t even allow Tedeschi to provide his equipment from the mansion.
“I’ve cooked for countless NFL superstars and celebrities,” said Tedeschi, who says he has prepared food for Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, among others. “Never once have I had one problem [until this]. My food is so good, and my mannerisms in someone’s home is second to none.”
Brown’s attorney Darren Heitner said they will be filing a motion to dismiss the complaint and will let that filing do their talking.
This isn’t the first time that Brown has been sued in a civil lawsuit. In April 2018 it was alleged that Brown threw items of a balcony. Brown settled a lawsuit with the guardian of a two-year-old child that was almost hit by the items that were thrown.
Brown hasn’t had a smooth transition to the Oakland Raiders fighting the NFL over the new helmet rule, and also hurting his feet not using proper coverage use a cryotherapy. At this point the regular season needs to hurry up so Brown can just focus on playing football.
