DALLAS (AP) – Dez Bryant faces a lawsuit from his former landlord over allegations of more than $60,000 in damages to a house that the Dallas Cowboys receiver leased.

The civil suit was filed last week by Texas state Senator Royce West, an attorney who defended the former Oklahoma State star in a domestic violence case involving the 2014 All-Pro’s mother. West seeks damages of between $100,000 and $200,000.

In the filing, West’s attorneys say Bryant and his representatives refused to respond to requests for reimbursement, and that an attorney representing Bryant threatened West with a lawsuit if he continued to try to collect.

The lawsuit says the 6,400-square-foot home in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto needed extensive repairs and cleaning.

Bryant’s agent, Kim Miale, didn’t immediately respond to an email request for comment.
