NFL star Bryant McKinnie reportedly owes the father of US rap star Trick Daddy more than $375,000 in unpaid bills racked up at strip clubs.
Charles 'Pop' Young, the rapper's father, is suing McKinnie, currently an offensive linesman with the Baltimore Ravens, after the NFL player allegedly reneged on his promise to repay the money by December 1, 2010.
Young's lawsuit, filed in Miami, includes a note from McKinnie that outlines the repayment schedule.
"In the past we discussed this amount listed above once the NFL season starts and I began receiving my payroll checks. I hereby promise to speak to Mr. Young about this matter by October 5, 2010 and make arrangements to have this balance paid in full by December 1, 2010," McKinnie wrote.
However, McKinnie, who is set to earn at least $2.2 million with the Ravens in 2012, told the Baltimore Sun that the allegations were false.
"I just called my lawyer about this because this is a bogus story. I just read the article. He was working at those places and he's tried to borrow money from me. People can put anything out there. What strip club gives you a $375,000 tab? It just sounds stupid to me. I've never heard of this in my life. This is bogus to me. For it to be even reported is stupid to me," he said.
"You could never run up a tab like that."
However, McKinnie has a history of lavish spending at bars and clubs, reportedly dropping $100,000 at a NBA All-Star launch party in Hollywood in February 2011.
