According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Florida judge has ordered Antonio’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, can withdraw from representing him in a legal battle with his former landlord.
The judge granted the motion and gave Antonio 30 days to find a new lawyer.
Back in December, Darren filed documents asking for permission to drop Antonio accusing him of refusing to pay up on legal bills. The lawyer accuses Antonio of having “failed substantially to fulfill an obligation to the lawyer regarding the lawyer’s services and has been given reasonable warning that the lawyer will withdraw unless the obligation is fulfilled.” He said Brown owes him money for services provided in the lawsuit.
He said Antonio blocked him from calling him on the phone or texting, He said it was basically impossible to represent Antonio.
In the legal battle, the landlord accuses Antonio of trashing the luxury rental property. He counter-sued his former landlord seeking the return of his $35,000 deposit.
Last year, Vladimir Kirsanov and Aqualina 1402 LLC sued Antonio over a $7 million oceanfront Miami condo. The owner says he had to spend a substantial amount on repairs. He accuses Antonio of refusing to pay up. He is seeking unspecified damages.
Antonio countersued Aqualina 1402, along with the personal owner Vladimir Kirsanov. He denies all allegations of damaging the home.
Antonio is currently fighting two separate legal battles. One involves his baby mama Chelsie Kyriss, who he is attempting to evict from his home. The two recently had a showdown with police outside Antonio’s home, which included the ex-NFL star screaming slurs at his ex. He accuses Chelsie of attempting to steal his Bentley from the driveway. The police spoke to both parties and eventually drove his baby mama away from the property.
The two are set to face off in court.
