Dez’s ‘dark place’

Mo' money, mo' problems.

Gazette staff April 6th, 2011

Even though the NFL is in a lockout, former Cowboy star Dez Bryant is still making headlines. Last week, CFN readers learned of the wide receiver’s ejection from an upscale Dallas mall for allegedly descending dungarees (hence the über-inquisitive headline, “Did Dez’s drawers droop?”).

Get ready for your jaw to drop: Now Dez is facing three lawsuits totaling $850,000 for alleged unpaid loans, jewelry and tickets for items purchased on credit, according to the Fort Worth Star- Telegram. Another suit involving nonpayment of rent in Stillwater has surfaced, the Tulsa World reported.

How’s Dez holding up?

“He wants to get past this,” adviser David Wells told ESPN’s Ben & Skin Show. “He wants to get all these deals past him and closure. He’s in a dark place in his life. Until you find the light, you’re going to continue to be in a dark place.”

With a $2.8 million base salary with bonuses, Bryant was shining brightly as a first-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys last spring, according to the Star-Telegram.

Last November, Dez lost a $55,000 earring against the New York Giants, according to ProFootballTalk. As luck would have it, a security guard located the diamond stud and returned the bling to Bryant after the game, the Star- Telegram reported. Dez gave the guard “a big thank you.”
