Youth Football Camp Suing Steelers Diontae Johnson For Failing To Show Up and Canceling 13 Minutes Before Camp Started

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson just signed a new 2 year $36.71 million extension with the team last week and he already has someone suing him for some money.

According to Total Pro Sports, Johnson was supposed to appear at a youth football camp and was a no show and now they want their money back plus interest. He was supposed to be at the camp back in May but with all the issues at airlines his flight was cancelled. However, he was reportedly booked for a later flight and didn’t want to wait so he just went home.

According to the lawsuit, Johnson signed an agreement with FlexWork Sports Management in November of 2021 to host a youth football camp in Pittsburgh called “FlexWork Sports Youth Camp presented by Diontae Johnson.” The camp was held on Mayy 22nd and had 230 campers who purchased tickets for the event starting at $125 each.

According to a personal service agreement the suit references, Johnson was to pay a cancellation fee of $2,250 if he canceled his appearance after April 5th.

“As a result of Johnson’s breach,” the report reads, “FlexWork has suffered and continues to suffer damages in an amount to be determined at trial, plus interest, costs, disbursements and attorneys’ fees.”

To make things worse, Johnson’s reps didn’t let the camp know until 13 mins before it was supposed to start and said they have lost more than $36,000 in refunds alone. They are wanting him to pay the money that FlexWork spent to put the camp on, money that will be tbd because of damage to their brand, plus the legal fees. And don’t want him to forget the interest.

They should have gotten JuJu when he was a Steeler, he loves doing stuff like that. The good news for Johnson is with his new contract he has a lot money for lawyers.
