Jocks and diamond laced jewelry always seems to cause some sort of problems. The latest athlete accused of skipping out on a jewelry bill? That would be Knicks star JR Smith. Per TMZ, Smith reportedly purchased $25,000 worth of jewels back in 2010 that included; earrings, a diamond chain and two Black Jesus pendants. The black ice pendant is reportedly worth $15,000 alone.
The company, Lemmerman sued Smith for the jewelry, attorney’s fees and interest. Will JR never responded so the judge ruled in the company’s favor and awarded them $48,000.
All I want to know is where are your people EARL? At the very least have someone respond. Stuff like this generally doesn’t go away if you ignore it. That’s what you have lawyers and an agent for. To handle things of this nature. I bet you don’t even rock your Jesus piece anymore…
