Bryant McKinnie Sued For $375k In Strip Club Debt

Detroit Lions v Baltimore Ravens

Bryant McKinnie’s debt is becoming more massive than he is. Once again, the Ravens backup left tackle is in the news and it should come as no surprise it’s once again about money.

NBC Miami has reported the father of rapper Trick Daddy, Charles “Pop” Young, is suing McKinnie for negative debt incurred between February 2009 and September 2010. Young claims McKinnie borrowed money and never repaid it while frequenting strip club establishments under Young’s ownership.

This season has been tough for McKinnie, as he’s done more blocking of lawsuits than opposing defensive linemen. After starting at left tackle last season for the Ravens, McKinnie has seen his role diminish with the team as he lost his starting job to Michael Oher.

Through the first seven games this season, McKinnie has played a combined total of 39 snaps at left tackle, which is only 10.5 percent of the total offensive snaps.

McKinnie defaulted on payments of a $4.5 million lockout loan, which the Ravens are now garnishing half of his net income to repay the company he owes. Then, just days before the Ravens took the field for their first game of the year against the Cincinnati Bengals, McKinnie was forced to take a pay cut if he wanted to stay in Baltimore.

Having agreeing to a reduced salary, McKinnie’s $3.2 million was reduced by $1 million.

McKinnie is no stranger to having his name in the news for personal issues and the lawsuit filed in the Miami-Dade Circuit Court is just the latest case of trouble for the former seventh overall pick.

In 2005, McKinnie was one of many Minnesota Vikings players involved in the infamous “Love Boat” incident, which featured numerous strippers, sex toys, and bottles of alcohol.

In 2008, McKinnie was arrested for assault after a brawl outside a Miami nightclub.

If McKinnie ever wants to have a chance to make right by those he’s borrowed funds from, he’ll have to find a way to increase his playing time first. However, if things continue to go the way they are now, McKinnie will have to rely more on his post-football career plans instead.

Let’s hope that McKinnie’s music label, B Major Music Group, is a little more financially stable than its founder.

UPDATE: In a phone interview with the Baltimore Sun, McKinnie denied reports that he’s being sued and called it a “bogus story”. McKinnie says he hasn’t received any papers and hasn’t been served. You can read more on the story HERE.
