You can look at this story in a lot of different ways.
One can say if you don’t pay someone the money you owe them, you can’t be surprised when they snitch on you. Others are saying Ruiz is a snake that can never be trusted again.
Ruiz did indeed lie and say it wasn’t about the money, but public health is why he went to NFL. He is now telling the truth to TMZ Sports that it was always about the money and didn’t care if AB had a fake card or not.
“The game plan now is to file a lawsuit and take it from there,” Ruiz said. “People provide a service and you’ve got to pay for it. That’s it.”
As we previously reported, Ruiz said he cooked for Brown regularly this past year … but when it came time to pay a bill for it all, AB balked.
Ruiz tells us if Brown had just paid up, he probably would’ve stayed quiet.
“If he had just probably paid me, you know what? He probably would still be getting paid in the NFL right now,” Ruiz said. “He’d probably be playing the games that he could be playing and none of this would have even happened.”
As for Brown, he’s claimed through his attorney, Sean Burstyn, that he is vaccinated … although the NFL says Brown will not appeal his suspension.
In the end, Brown should have just paid him even though this was borderline extortion from Ruiz.
AB has a rep for not paying his bills, so he really needs to work on that, so people aren’t as enthusiastic about exposing him.
Would you trust Ruiz to be your chef going forward?
