Johnny Manziel owes a lot of money after trashing a rental house during two nights of wild partying earlier this month, according to the attorney for the company that owns the property.
According to the New York Post, Manziel and a friend rented a house in West Hollywood last week, promptly threw “two all-night ragers” and when it was over, allegedly caused almost $32,000 in damage to the $4.5 million property.
Los Angeles police responded to the home after noise complaints by neighbors on April 6.
Johnny Manziel and his friends “were consuming drugs and alcohol” and caused the damage to the home he rented out for two nights earlier this month, according to a letter from the lawyer representing the property owner that was obtained by USA TODAY Sports.
Johnny Manziel stayed at the home April 4-6 and agreed to pay an additional $5,000 per night if there were more than 15 guests in the house.
“Despite Mr. Manziel’s assurances to my client that the rental was to be used strictly for his own personal and private use, surveillance footage shows that Mr. Manziel threw large parties on both nights, causing extensive damage to the subject property,” attorney Niki Ghazian worte in the letter.
Ghazian asked for $31,580 — including $19,580 in damage and replacement fees — in a letter sent to Manziel’s attorney, Bradley Beckworth, on Monday.
According to the letter, the damages include “extensive burn marks from cigarettes and marijuana” found on the floor, wine stains “that cannot be removed” from a carpet, a broken glass table and a broken door.
“They were supposed to check out at noon,” real estate broker Nicholas Goodwin, who owns LA Exotic Life, told the New York Post. “Manziel was passed out …There was cocaine all over the kitchen table, and mushrooms were still out on the table in front of him. There was booze everywhere … broken glasses over the floor and a champagne glass in a tree.”
Agent Drew Rosenhaus informed Manziel this week that he would no longer represent him unless the quarterback gets treatment.
Manzel told TMZ last week: “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with partying, bro. There’s a difference between partying and being out of control.”
