Lawsuit claims NFL player McKinnie owes strip-club debt in Miami

By Aaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun –

BALTIMORE — Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie is facing another lawsuit demanding payment for a debt. This time it is a $375,000 lawsuit stemming from allegations that he ran up a hefty tab at two Miami strip clubs.

According to the lawsuit filed Monday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, McKinnie owes the money to Charles “Pop” Young, the father of rapper Trick Daddy. However, McKinnie denied the allegations to The Baltimore Sun.

“I got no papers, I was never served,” McKinnie said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “I just called my lawyer about this because this is a bogus story. I just read the article. (Young) 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.”

According to NBC 6 South Florida, McKinnie agreed to pay Young back for bills accrued at different clubs, including the King of Diamonds strip club, but hasn’t done so. According to the report, McKinnie wrote the following promissory note on Oct. 1, 2010: “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’s agent, Michael George, declined to comment on the lawsuit, but said he has been assisting McKinnie with his finances.

McKinnie, whose wages are being garnished this season because of a settlement in a separate lawsuit over a $4.5 million loan he took out during the NFL lockout, had his salary reduced from $3.2 million to a $2.2 million base salary at the beginning of the season.

Replaced by Michael Oher as the Ravens’ starting left tackle, McKinnie has a contract that gives him the opportunity to make back the $1million cut from his salary if he plays 50 percent of the Ravens’ offensive snaps.

The Ravens do not comment on players’ personal financial matters.

McKinnie contends that he does not owe the money.

“You could never run up a tab like that,” McKinnie said. “For somebody like that to say something like this, they figure if they go to the media that you’ll pay them, I guess.

“I would never pay this guy because what he’s saying isn’t true. I just found out about this when people started texting me. This is the least of my worries.”
