Kellen Winslow Sued for Trashing Rental House
Tough couple of days for Winslow.
Got fired on his day off and now getting sued.
According to Brent Schrotenboer of U-T San Diego, tight end Kellen Winslow has been accused of trashing a house that he had rented for $9,000 per month. The suit contends that “every corner of the house was damaged,” and that Persian rugs and carpeting “were stained with dog urine and also littered with dog feces, and that “[t]he house was overpowered with a putrid stench of animal waste.”
Winslow’s lawyer, Brian Watkins, says the lawsuit is “bogus,” and that the litigation represents “a shakedown of a professional athlete.”
The six-month lease started in January 2011. “They want to portray it as though Kellen Winslow had a fraternity of football friends partying,” Watkins said. “But the house was rented for his wife, who was pregnant. She was living there with her mother and a housekeeper. There was no partying going on. Kellen was rarely even there.”
$9g a month?
Was he renting from Diddy? No wonder these athletes end up broke.
