Kellen Winslow Jr. recently moved out of his $9,000 per month rental property in Rancho Santa Fe, Cali., and according to the owners of the home he left it in horrendous shape. Ahmad and Nona Zarei have filed suit against Winslow alleging $130,000 in damages to their house which came fully furnished with Persian rugs. Winslow rented the home for six months.

According to the claim obtained by U-T San Diego, “Every corner of the home was damaged” and Winslow left the carpeting “stained with dog urine and also littered with dog feces.” The Zareis say the house was left with a “putrid stench of animal waste.”

In what sounds like a scene from “The Hangover” the way it has been described, the owners also say there are holes in the walls and cigarette and cigar burns on the outdoor furniture. Naturally, Winslow’s attorney Brian Watkins has called the claim “bogus” and says it is merely an attempt by the owners to extort a professional athlete for financial gain.

“They want to portray it as though Kellen Winslow had a fraternity of football friends partying,” Watkins said. “But the house was rented for his wife, who was pregnant. She was living there with her mother and a housekeeper. There was no partying going on. Kellen was rarely even there.”

The suit also claims that Winslow’s real estate agent came to survey the property and described it as “normal behavior for a 25-year-old with millions.” Unless the Zareis went in and trashed their own home in a short amount of time, this seems like it would be an easy case to solve. Either Winslow treated it like a college dorm room or he didn’t. If he did, he should face the consequences.
