Antonio Brown is a free agent in the NFL, but his rap career has taken off in recent months. He is also known for his bizarre behavior. Antonio has been in legal problems before, and this time it’s for fraud.

TMZ reports, Antonio Brown has been summoned to court once more. This time, a man in Florida claims the wideout sold him a fake Richard Mille watch for $160,000 despite fully being aware it was a fake worth far less. Ryan Kane filed a lawsuit against Brown earlier this week in Broward County.

Ryan claimed that the NFL star deceived him on the July 27 sale. Kane claims in the suit, obtained by the outlet, that Brown told him the watch, allegedly an RM 011 model, was real. Brown also stated that it was worth “in excess of $400,000.”

Kane alleged that he purchased it based on Brown’s claims and wired $160,000 to Brown’s company. However, he learned a few weeks later that the item was a fake. Kane claims in the suit that he had it authenticated and appraised by a watch appraiser for insurance purposes.

Kane claimed that the guy handed him some bad news while he was there. He said that it was only worth a couple of hundred bucks. Kane claims that after asking around, he learned that Brown purchased the fake watch and three others similar to it from a dealer in Dubai earlier this year for less than $500 apiece. Kane is suing Brown for fraud and other allegations, seeking his money back plus interest.

Of course, this couldn’t be further from the first time that Brown has been hauled into court. A personal trainer, a chef, and others have filed complaints against him in recent years. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
