GSP’s personal life is looking worse than his face after UFC 167. It has already been reported that St-Pierre will be taking a “break” from MMA due to family issues and now he’ll have to contend with a lawsuit filled by ex-manager, Shari Spencer. According to TMZ Sports this case is getting uglier by the day and GSP could have to pay millions to Spencer. According to another manager who worked with GSP, Georges’ relationship with Shari ended “very badly.” Shari clearly felt she helped build GSP’s career and therefore deserved a cut of his fight earnings and sponsorship cash. The court docs show … the judge agreed with Shari and ordered GSP to cut a check for $737,066.35 — which the fighter paid back in April. But there’s more … the judge also ordered GSP to pay Shari’s management company the following: – 20% of future revenue on various UFC Pay-Per-View fights – 20% of royalties earned under a 2008 UFC merchandising contract – 5% of future revenues from sponsorships she apparently helped him earn (including Affliction and RUSHFit). A source familiar with the case tells us … Shari’s final cut could be worth several million dollars. With Dana White set on a GSP vs Hendricks rematch and these legal issues, St-Pierre may be forced to end this UFC hiatus prematurely and cash in on another large pay day.
