It seems like being outside is getting more and more dangerous.
Just ask N.F.L. RB Gus Edwards.
Edwards was just trying to enjoy himself at a strip club in L.A. back in December when he was then robbed at gunpoint and had his chain stolen. According to T.M.Z., he’s suing the club for more than $800k because he thinks getting robbed was their fault.
The 26-year-old Baltimore Ravens player spelled out the allegations in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, saying he and his friend, Loomis Zayzay, were at Crazy Girls on Dec. 11, 2021 when the robbery went down.
Edwards says he and Zayzay drove their vehicle to the club’s valet and paid the $60 fee to leave their ride there. Edwards says the two then entered the venue, and paid another $800 to sit in a private area guarded by security.
But, Edwards says after about an hour, Crazy Girls employees began fighting — so the two men left. When they went to pick up their car at the valet outside the club, Edwards says five masked men — each holding a firearm — got out of a car, confronted them, and demanded their jewelry.
Edwards says he and Zayzay attempted to fend off the robbers — but, in the suit, the football player says the men eventually ended up taking his $50,000 custom necklace and $25,000 watch. Edwards says Zayzay’s $60,000 Audemars Piguet watch was also stolen in the altercation.
According to Edwards, the club security did not attempt to stop the incident and says that he got a D.M. on Instagram a week later that said the valet set him up.
It isn’t safe anywhere in L.A. these days, and it totally plausible the valet guy or someone in the club alerted the goons that Edwards was in the club with a lot of cash and jewelry.
While plausible, Edwards will need more than just a DM. to prove his case. He can best hope the club doesn’t want any bad publicity and settle the case.
