Do you find it hard to believe that a twenty-something football player with oodles of cash…enough to have a pet monkey trashed a rental property and didn’t want to pay for it? Mmmmhmmm…keep reading…

Texas senate member and attorney, Sen. Royce West is suing Dallas Cowboys front man, Dez Bryant claiming that he completely wrecked a rental property owned by West between 2013 and this past January. His attorneys claim that Dez caused “irreparable damage to carpeting, flooring, windows, shutters, and blinds; the presence of animal feces, trash, debris, and personal property inside the residence; and distinct and pervasive odors throughout”. The senator had to make over $60,000 in repairs and replacements in order to be able to rent the 6400 sq. ft. home in a gated community in DeSoto Texas again.

Court filings claim that West’s representatives reached out to Bryant for several months after he’d vacated the property to try and make amends but were met with threats that he himself would be sued if he continued to harass the football star. The worst part of all of this in my opinion is that not only did West act as an attorney for Bryant in the past, but he was also “assigned” to a sort of “task-force” formed to mentor and keep Bryant out of trouble. Ahhh, gotta love owner Jerry Jones. He’ll try anything once. Welp…we shall see what happens when you let your monkey poop on the hand that tries to help you.
