Former NFL superstar wide receiver Andre Rison, most recently of the Raiders, is a real “bad boy.” Here are some of his off-the-field accomplishments:
He wrote bad checks totaling $167,627.46 to Elif Jewelry in Atlanta for a Rolex watch, diamond jewelry, and a gold necklace.
He owes his ex-wife $236,949.96 in child support (and legal fees).
He owes about $70,000 to three ex-girlfriends with whom he had a child.
In 1994, he must have really pissed off singer Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, because she burned his house down.
Regarding his candor about his assets, check this out. Per ex-girlfriend Raycoa Handley’s attorney Randy Kessler: “One time when I was taking his deposition, he said he couldn’t even afford a cell phone. But then all of the sudden his pocket started ringing.”
And why has all of this come up? Because the Raiders owe Rison $100,000, which they want to pay him, but are reluctant to because of all of his creditors. So they have asked the court to determine how the money should be paid. To read more, click here.
