Ex-NFL star Antonio Brown will be grilled for a second time by his former landlord, as part of a nasty court battle.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Brown will sit for another deposition on December 12 in Florida.

The decision came after his first deposition ended in a nasty dispute. His ex-landlord accused Brown of acting “belligerent” during the original depo. In court documents, the landlord claimed Brown was “extremely noncompliant and flagrantly disorderly.” He said his “shameful behavior” warrants an order requiring him to sit for another deposition and sanctions. He demanded Brown also be hit with $10,000 in sanctions. Brown denied the allegations and claimed he was ambushed.

The judge did not order sanctions against Brown but scheduled the second deposition.

Last year, Brown was sued by his landlord, Aqualina 1402 LLC, who leased him a $7 million oceanfront Miami condo.

The NFL star leased the luxury condo starting in February 2018. The home was furnished with “high end custom furniture such as leather couches. Silk fabric covered sofas and top of the line appliances.”

The landlord accuses Brown of leaving the home in severe damage. He said the NFL star breached the lease by “destroying, damaging, defacing the premises, as well as furnishings, appliances and other personal belongings” of the owner.

The owner said they had to spend a substantial amount on repairs. He claimed Brown refused to pay up despite demands. He sued seeking unspecified damages.

Brown fired back and countersued Aqualina 1402, along with the personal owner Vladimir Kirsanov.

He denies all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded the suit against him be dismissed.

Brown says any damages caused “are solely and completely attributable to Plaintiff’s own conduct.” He claims to have tried to give the landlord replacement furniture. Brown says the owner refused to let his team back into the home. Brown said he paid all money owed on the lease, plus extra. He says he paid $140,250 to move in (three months’ rent, security deposit and a cleaning fee). The NFL star moved out of the unit after “being the victim of a theft.” Brown sued demanding the return of his $35,000 deposit.
