Former NFL star Antonio “AB” Brown has yet another legal matter on his hands, and it’s related to $1.1M in high-end jewelry!
Antonio Brown Allegedly Failed To Pay For The Jewelry
According to TMZ, a celebrity jeweler known as Shuki International has filed a lawsuit against Brown.
Specifically, Shuki says he gave AB numerous pieces of jewelry under the pretense that he’d receive $1,095,000 by December 2022. However, AB is accused of failing to cough up the cash.
Notably, Shuki points out that two diamond fingers worth $500K each are among the items he gave Brown.
We should also add that the pair appeared to share a close relationship, as Shuki even lent Brown his Ferrari at one point and told TMZ that he wasn’t fazed by the former athlete damaging the bumper.
Additionally, back in mid-2022, AB paid homage to Shuki with a song called “Shuki Diamonds.” Considering this new lawsuit, it’s unclear if the pair are still on good terms.
The Athlete Has Been Rackin’ Up Legal Issues Over The Past Year
Of course, this jewelry situation is far from the only legal issue on Brown’s plate.

As The Shade Room previously reported, an arrest warrant was issued for the former Tamba Bay Buccaneers athlete in late 2022, and the matter was related to domestic battery charges.
AB is specifically accused of threatening to shoot the mother of four of his children. Additionally, Brown allegedly threw a shoe at her after locking her out of her home.
