It might be the biggest Miami strip club scandal yet -- if only because one of the principal figures is a mountainous 6-foot 8-inch offensive tackle.
The father of local rap legend Trick Daddy says Baltimore Ravens player Bryant McKinnie -- a former University of Miami standout and former Davie resident -- owes him $375,000 after borrowing the funds to spend at local strip clubs.
Charles “Pop” Young filed the lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court Monday afternoon, as first reported by NBC6. Young says McKinnie borrowed the money between February 2009 and September 2010, when Young was general manager of Miami’s infamous King Of Diamonds strip club, and even signed a promissory note.
But McKinnie says the lawsuit is bogus, and that Young who tried to borrow money from McKinnie:
"I got no papers, I was never served," McKinnie told The Baltimore Sun in a telephone interview. "I just called my lawyer about this because this is a bogus story. I just read the article. He was working at those places and he's tried to borrow money from me. People can put anything out there. What strip club gives you a $375,000 tab? It just sounds stupid to me. I've never heard of this in my life. This is bogus to me. For it to be even reported is stupid to me."
McKinnie has already had plenty of financial trouble lately. The Ravens currently garnish half of his $2.2 million salary after he defaulted on a $4.5 million loan during the NFL lockout. Though the lockout didn’t wind up costing players any game checks, McKinnie failed to repay the money -- and then took a $1 million pay cut to stay in Baltimore. ProFootballTalk reports the judgement allows the Ravens to garnish half of his future salaries as well.
