Dallas Cowboys linebacker, Keith Brooking, is in some hot water for deciding to not pay his $2 million debt to Wells Fargo.
So Wells Fargo is taking him to court.
TMZ is reporting that Brooking, who signed a 3-year $6 million contract with Dallas in 2009, is being sued in federal court in Georgia by Wells Fargo.
He allegedly took out 2 separate loans in 2008 for $1,996,224.73, and has decided not to pay them back.
According to the lawsuit, Brooking “realized he would not be able to meet his obligations” to Wells Fargo … and secretly embarked on a “systematic effort to hinder, delay and defraud” the bank.
The bank is claiming began to hide assets, like his properties in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina, so the bank could not take them.
Brooking apparently just transferred the deeds out of his name and to various “insiders, affiliates and relatives.”
Wells Fargo just wants the properties.
A representative for Brooking told TMZ, “There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support Wells Fargo’s allegations that Keith transferred any properties … to fraudulently conceal assets. These allegations are completely unfounded and Keith is and will continue to defend himself vigorously against these allegations.”
This on top of the rumors that Dallas may not sign Brooking. Well he better hope someone signs him, because it sounds like he may need the money.
