Busy buying sneakers, Dez Bryant doesn't pay jewelry bill

When you shop at Foot Locker three times a week, as we learned last week Dez Bryant does, maybe it’s hard to pay the bills.

At least the ones coming from the jeweler.

Bryant will have to swap quite a few sneakers to make up for the bill he owes a New York jeweler that has sued the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver. According to the Dallas Morning News, Rafaello & Co. has sued Bryant for $246,000 for eight to 10 pieces of diamoned-encrusted jewelry that he ordered more than a year ago after he declared for the NFL draft.

“My client’s counsel in New York has been trying for at least six months to get him to pay,” said Mike Bowers, a lawyer with the firm of Bell Nunnally & Martin in Dallas, who is representing the jeweler. “We still would obviously like to have a satisfactory resolution to this outside of a trial.”

Bryant was not reached for comment. Perhaps he can be found at the NorthPark Center Mall.
