Did you ever want to throw yourself a party so bad, you figured - I'm doing it, no matter what the cost? Well according to Yahoo! former Texas and NFL star QB Vince Young got that urge, and went a bit overboard.
Yahoo! is reporting today, Feb. 13, "The former financial adviser for ex-NFL quarterback Vince Young said under oath that he arranged a high-interest, seven-figure loan for Young during the 2011 lockout because the player wanted to throw himself a $300,000 birthday party even though he was running low on funds."
Hmm...throw yourself a party for 300k when you are on strike and you are "running low on funds?"
Ronnie Peoples, president and CEO of Peoples Financial Service Inc. said during a deposition last month that he contacted Pro Player Funding LLC about the loan after being informed that Young had already paid for the party.
"I think we still would have been OK to go ahead and survive until the next season, but he had a birthday event coming up that he paid 300 and some thousand dollars for," Peoples testified. "That's what prompted that call."
Of course Young and his attorney fired right back saying this isn't true.
Trey Dolezal represents Young and he said Peoples' account contains "numerous inaccuracies, including the statement regarding the birthday celebration."
"I have no idea what he's talking about with the birthday party and neither does Vince," Dolezal said.
Let the he said/she said games begin. All I want to know is what kind of party could you have for $300,000?
A darn good one!
