Now we know why sports agent Drew Rosenhaus dropped Johnny Manziel from his client list earlier this week. After becoming Manziel’s closest ally for a couple of weeks, Rosenhaus said he would never work with the former NFL quarterback until he gets his life together. The troubling behavior was far worse than anybody thought.
According to New York Post’s Emily Smith, Manziel and a friend rented out a luxurious Los Angeles home for two days in early April. By the time his stay was over, Manziel and his friends destroyed the $4.5 million house with a pair of extravagant parties. Maybe extravagant is not the word, but they were epic nonetheless.
Apparently, Manziel was drunk bro. It’s not bad enough that Manziel’s crew threw these parties. It’s reported that Manziel was responsible for causing $32,000 in damage. While the monetary number is insignificant for someone like Manziel, the behavior is not helping him land another roster spot in the NFL. Maybe he’s not really interested in playing professional football. That would really ruin a fans’ day. Like, how dare he not want to compete in the NFL? In reality, Manziel should still be in college.
When broker Nicholas Goodwin came to check out the home, he found it unlivable. Two hours after Manziel was supposed to check out, Goodwin found the Heisman Trophy winner passed out on the couch at 2 p.m. There were also foreign substances found in the house.
The post reported that “lines of suspicious white powder” were present. Additionally, there was a bag of “magic mushrooms” in the house. No one is alleging that Manziel was using drugs, but it’s not the first time he’s been in precarious situations with illegal drugs around.
Goodwin’s company LA Exotic Life rents out vacation properties. The property damage included a broken glass table and bathroom door. There were also wine stains and cigarette burns on the expensive carpet. If this doesn’t sound like the aftermath of a wild party at Texas A&M, nothing ever will. But why would Manziel break things that aren’t his?
There was a letter written by Goodwin’s lawyer, Niki Ghazian. Due to the wild parties that Manziel and company hosted, “they caused a disturbance to the neighborhood.” There may have been a Kathy Griffin sighting at the event as well. However, the raucous caused the LAPD to be called on April 6.
Earlier in the week, Manziel tried to say he was staying with Super Bowl MVP Von Miller. During a video, he tried to let everybody know he wasn’t drinking. Then it was reported that Manziel was living with suspended NFL WR Josh Gordon.
Maybe there are ‘No More Parties in LA.’ If it’s up to Manziel, that will never be the case.
