Eagles' Jay Ajayi Sued For Allegedly Trashing Mansion After Super Bowl

Ajayi's camp said he rented the mansion but paid the full rate, didn't cause damages and never pushed the owner.

Hours after TMZ Sports reported that Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi was being sued for $25,000 after apparently damaging a Los Angeles mansion, the Super Bowl champion's representatives have adamantly denied the allegations.

According to TMZ Sports, Ajayi and his friend were specifically told by the owner of the place that parties were not allowed. During that time, Ajayi allegedly hosted a handful of parties in the home, which he was told not to.

TMZ noted the owner charges $5,000 per party, but Ajayi did not pay the $25,000 penalty fees he accumulated.

Ajayi is also accused of breaking a table, scratching the floor and violating a rule that prevents smoking.

The owner also claims that he was shoved by the Eagles running back during a confrontation on February 18.

The suit has no merit, according to a rep of Ajayi's that spoke with TMZ on Monday evening.

The owner of the mansion describes the shove as "battery", and says he had to call local security to remove Ajayi from the property.

The 24-year-old Ajayi was acquired by the Eagles in a trade with the Dolphins around mid-season last year, and joined the Eagles with rumblings of "locker room chemistry issues" leading to his departure from Miami.
