Odell Beckham Jr. is facing a $15 million lawsuit from a man who alleges he got beaten up at the NFL player’s home.
TMZ reports that Ishmael Temple, who claimed to be a friend of Beckham Jr.’s in the suit, was invited to his home in January. The lawsuit alleges that while at the home of Beckham, the football player’s bodyguard, Charles Puryear, pointed a gun to Temple and said, “I bet you’ve never gotten shot before.”
According to Temple, Beckham laughed the incident off when he was told what went down. Temple claims that he was later punched in the head by another man. He also says that Puryear joined in and stomped him out. Temple said he blacked out and when he woke up to kicks in the face, Beckham did not order the beating to be stopped. Temple says he suffered a knee injury, two chipped front teeth, a busted lip, and damage to his ear after his earring was ripped out. He claims he’s had to spend $18,000 just to fix his teeth. Temple is suing Beckham for $15 million.
