TMZ reported Monday that Birds running back Jay Ajayi was being sued for $25,000 after allegedly trashing a Los Angeles house after the Super Bowl.

The alleged incident(s) happened back in February, when Ajayi rented the property for a five-day stay. In the lawsuit, the owner claims Ajayi and a friend threw multiple parties at the house despite being told not to. The owner says Ajayi damaged the home and refused to pay back owed money:

In total, Ajayi racked up $25,000 in penalty fees — but when the owner confronted Jay on Feb. 18, he claims Ajayi “pushed [him] on [his] chest in a menacing and threatening manner.”

The owner describes the incident as battery — and said he had to call local security to remove the NFL star from the property.

Ajayi’s camp later responded to a TMZ request for comment:

A rep for Ajayi tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is bogus … adamantly denying Jay ever physically pushed the owner of the home.

They also deny Jay damaged the property in any way … or hosted any parties.

Instead they claim the owner tried to get Jay and his friend to pay him cash directly — bypassing the Airbnb website — so they say they left the house several days early … but still paid the full rate.

Truthfully, though, who hasn’t (allegedly) thrown a banger and trashed a mansion? I think we’ve all been there before.

That said, let’s hope this situation can be resolved amicably.

      1. There were several comments on the Sixers lottery article about mistakes regarding stated landing possibilities. Who deleted them – you or Kyle?
