You know what Dez Bryant could use? Like, really, really bad? Some kind of, um, accountant who helps make sure all of Bryant’s supposed debts are paid off before another “Dez Bryant apparently owes somebody money” story comes out in the process.
Oh wait, too late.
As the Fort Worth Star Telegram writes, the Cowboys volatile receiver apparently got into a fight outside a ritzy hotel in Miami Beach on Sunday, and reportedly, his tussle was with the crew of rapper Lil Wayne.
Of course it was.
The fight apparently began because Lil Wayne’s people were blasting Bryant over unpaid debts he owes a high-end micro-finance company called Endurance Capital Fund. The Star-Telegram writes that company has ties to Lil’ Wayne’s record label Young Money Entertainment.
Bryant was briefly detained by police, but he wasn’t arrested. Obviously, though, Bryant’s money problems haven’t gone away yet.
So, that makes about $50,000 (out of an original loan of $100,000) he supposedly owes EFC and $600,000 he owed a Dallas jeweler. Therefore, if Bryant comes to you seeking money, it’s probably best to decline the loan request at this point.
But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said recently that Bryant is NOT in debt, claiming, "His maturation over the last two years has been outstanding. Relative to his habits with meetings, on time, timeliness, preparation and the kinds of things we were concerned about when we drafted him he's made tremendous progress."
Lil Wayne, I assume, would beg to differ.
