The father of rapper Trick Daddy is suing Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie for $375,000. Normally we wouldn’t bat an eye at this because athletes are always getting sued left and right, but this one caught our attention because all of the money was allegedly spent at strip clubs.
Via Eye On Football:
“Charles ‘Pop’ Young alleges he loaned McKinnie the money between February 2009 and September 2010. According to Young, McKinnie promised to pay him back but never did.
‘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, according to a promissory note provided by Young in the lawsuit.”
According to Bryant McKinnie (via the Baltimore Sun), the lawsuit is not real and he hasn’t even received any papers.
“‘I got no papers, I was never served,’ McKinnie told The Baltimore Sun in a telephone interview. ‘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.'”
This isn’t the first time McKinnie and large tabs have crossed paths. Though he denied the story, reports in February 2011 indicated that McKinnie dropped $100,000 on 15 bottles of champagne in Hollywood.
$375,000 is quite the step up from there, especially at a strip club. Because that’s a lot of strip clubbin’, if you ask us. What’s a lap dance these days, $20 a song? Let’s estimate each song is three minutes. If we assume that McKinnie really likes lap dances, that’s 18,750 lap dances, or a total of 56,250 minutes of lap dancing – which breaks down to 937.5 hours, or 39 days, 1 hour and 30 minutes in dances. Now, reports indicate that this happened at several strip clubs over a long period of time. So it’s not like he sat down for over a month and snacked on the strip club buffet during mini breaks. Still, we hope he spread his money around for some more expensive strip club ventures. Or, at the very least, the lap dancer got some breaks.
