Cam Newton is facing a $270,000 lawsuit over alleged damages to an $11 million home he rented in Beverly Hills after the Super Bowl. Newton rented the home for 61 days at a cost of $123,000 from a luxury home company managed by Jared Pobre, husband of former WWE wrestler Stacy Keibler. Newton rented the home under the agreement that there would be no parties or smoking.
However, according to the lawsuit, following Newton’s rental Pobre had to replace a rug valued at $32,930.48 and had to repair water damage to floors and damage to walls, among other problems. Repairs took the home off the rental market for two months, resulting in lost rental revenues of $72,000 per month. The suit indicates that Pobre attempted to get Newton to pay an additional $90,000 for repairs, but Newton has not yet paid.
“We’re expecting Cam Newton to be held accountable for actions for damages he caused,” Richard K. Howell, attorney for Pobre, told ESPN.
Newton was living in California for several weeks during the summer while filming “All in With Cam Newton,” a Nickelodeon TV show.
