Report: N.Y. company pursuing Dez Bryant for unpaid loan
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is certain to encounter a hostile crowd Sunday night at MetLife Stadium when his team tangles with the New York Giants for the NFC East title and a spot in the playoffs.
He might find some other folks who aren’t happy with him too. According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, a New York-based financial company may serve papers against Bryant at the Cowboys’ hotel as he has failed to re-pay in full a loan he received.
Per the report, Bryant still owes more than $50,000 on a $100,000 loan. This is just the latest in what have been a series of legal issues for the former first-round draft pick.
“This was a simple transaction with a loan agreement and promissory note reviewed by Mr. Bryant’s advisors and signed by Mr. Bryant,” the company said in a statement to Rapoport. “We held up our side of the bargain, now we are simply asking that Mr. Bryant follow through with what he promised to do.
“We have reached out to everybody from Mr. Bryant’s agent to his mortgage broker to try to get this debt repaid. Everyone acknowledges the debt, but nobody will come forward to repay it. This is a unique and disappointing experience. We have never had a client refuse to repay their debt before.”
