Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is being sued for allegedly damaging an $11 million Beverly Hills, California, mansion he rented during the offseason.
According to TMZ Sports, the lawsuit calls for the reigning NFL MVP to pay $270,324.47 plus legal fees for damage and lost rent.
The lawsuit was filed by luxury home rental company manager Jared Pobre, who is the husband of former WWE Superstar Stacy Keibler.
Per TMZ Sports, Newton “agreed there would be no parties, no smoking and no more than eight guests” allowed in the rental home, but the housekeeper allegedly told Pobre’s company the former Auburn standout was breaking the rules.
Newton should be fine financially regardless of how the lawsuit plays out, as he is currently playing under a five-year, $103.8 million contract, according to Spotrac.com.
The three-time Pro Bowler is dealing with some on-field issues this season in addition to his off-field concerns, however, as the Panthers are a disappointing 1-3.
Newton also suffered a concussion in Carolina’s Week 4 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and his playing status for Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is uncertain.
