Johnny Manziel last week told TMZ he was living in Los Angeles with former Texas A&M teammate and Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and getting his life together. However, his comment was made outside of a nightclub that the former Heisman Trophy winner had been partying at for consecutive days, and was later proven to be false.
A new report from Emily Martin of the New York Post‘s Page Six suggests the partying may have gone overboard. Manziel is reportedly facing a bill for $32,000 in damages after allegedly throwing wild parties in a West Hollywood rental home that left traces of what the owner of the company that rented the home to Manziel said was cocaine, mushrooms and alcohol.
“They were supposed to check out at noon,” Nicholas Goodwin, who owns LA Exotic Life, told Martin. “Manziel was passed out . . . There was cocaine all over the kitchen table, and mushrooms were still out on the table in front of him. There was booze everywhere . . . broken glasses over the floor and a Champagne glass in a tree.” He added, “If they don’t respond to our demand for compensation, we will sue.”
This news comes after an ultimatum Wednesday from Manziel’s recently hired agent Drew Rosenhaus. He told the troubled quarterback to seek help within a matter of days or Rosenhaus would drop him as a client. Manziel’s former agent severed ties with him in February, amid an alleged domestic violence accusation, which is scheduled to go before a Dallas grand jury in the coming weeks.
An ESPN report disputed Manziel’s initial claims to TMZ that said he was living with Super Bowl MVP Von Miller in Los Angeles, instead saying Manziel was rooming with suspended former Browns teammate Josh Gordon.
Manziel has been looking for a team to sign him since the Cleveland Browns cut him in March after a season filled with off-field mishaps, including missing mandatory team events.
The most recent accusations against the former Aggies’ star certainly won’t help him in his pursuit to find employment in the NFL.
