Antonio Brown Sued by Personal Trainer He Used While with Steelers



Steelers Antonio Brown

Former Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is being sued for nonpayment by a formed personal trainer that he used while he was still with the team in April.

According to TMZ, personal trainer Sean Pena is suing Brown for over $7,000 in unpaid therapy and training services, reimbursement and late fees.

Pena flew to California to work with Brown in April, just before the star wide receiver was traded from the Steelers to the Oakland Raiders. After the trade, Brown signed a three-year, $50 million contract with the Raiders.

The lawsuit is another in a series of off-the-field marks against Brown, including a recently settled lawsuit for throwing furniture from the balcony of a fourteenth-story apartment in Miami in April 2018.

In November, he was cited for driving over 100 mph over on McKnight Road north of Pittsburgh. He left the team without permission in December and did not play in its Week 17 game against the Bengals. In February, Brown was investigated for domestic assault after allegedly shoving the mother of his son in an altercation at his home.

The Steelers received two draft pick in exchange for Brown, and used them to select wide receiver Diontae Johnson in the third round and tight end Zach Gentry in the fifth round. In addition to Johnson, the Steelers signed wide receiver Donte Moncrief to help replace Brown.
