On Monday, a New York-based jewelry company filed a suit that claimed Bryant owes $246,000 for several pieces of jewelry he ordered from January to May 2010.
On Tuesday, The Dallas Morning News reported that another jeweler based in the Dallas suburb of Colleyville is trying to collect more than $320,350 from Bryant. The second suit, which was filed in Tarrant County court, claims Bryant hasn't paid debts for jewelry, tickets and personal loans.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said players’ actions during the lockout can be subject to disciplinary review once the labor dispute is resolved. The Tulsa World also reported Tuesday that Bryant has been sued in Stillwater, Okla., for failure to pay rent and damages sustained to his three-bedroom, two-bathroom home he rented there. Payne County District Court documents claim he owes a total of $3,479.80.
“The guy just left and didn’t pay his rent,” property manager Bryce Campbell told The Tulsa World. “It’s that simple.”
According to the Texas lawsuit—originally filed last September but amended last week—jeweler/ticket broker Eleow Hunt says Bryant has not paid for 40 pieces of jewelry totaling $293,000.
