Antonio Brown must fork over thousands of dollars to his former CEO for selling him a fake Richard Mille watch.
On Monday, a Broward County judge ruled that Secure The Bag Entertainment founder Ryan Kane will receive a little over $169,000 in addition to attorney fees from the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer. After leaving football, Brown launched a music career, signing with STB to help achieve these goals. During their partnership, Brown told Kane he was interested in selling several of his watches, specifically a Richard Mille 011, which Brown claimed could fetch up to $400,000. Once Kane purchased the timepiece in July for $160,000, he soon learned it was not authentic through an appraiser. Kane quickly took legal action against the former NFL pro, TMZ reported.
Following Monday’s ruling, Kane spoke with Baller Alert, sharing that he was satisfied with the judgment and hopes this serves as a lesson to others working with Brown.
“He will have to pay me back or sit in a prison cell until he does. I want people to know who that man is and what he’s capable of. Just spreading that awareness about him and that he’s a real-life bad person,” the entrepreneur stated.
He also addressed his former friend on Instagram, uploading an old photo of him and Brown in happier times, slamming him for his fraudulent antics.
“The Judge awarded me 170k plus 40-50k in attorneys fees, damages, and interests. Made a cool 50-60 bands. Thanks, AB, you criminal POS,” he wrote before adding that a separate case between Brown and STB is still pending.
Brown has not yet publicly commented on the ruling.
