Antonio Brown is headed to trial in the legal battle accusing him of damaging a luxury Miami rental pad.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Brown and his former landlord Vladimir Kirsanov will face off in Florida court on May 25, 2020.

The judge has set the start date and warned if either party doesn’t comply, they could be hit with sanctions.

The lawsuit was filed last year by Brown’s former landlord and his company Aqualina 1402 LLC. They had leased the ex-NFL star a $7 million oceanfront Miami condo in February 2018.

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 says he had to spend a substantial amount on repairs. He claims Brown refused to pay up despite demands. He is seeking unspecified damages.

Brown countersued Aqualina 1402, along with the personal owner Vladimir Kirsanov. He denies all allegations of ruining his home and demanded the lawsuit be dismissed.

He says any damages caused “are solely and completely attributable to Plaintiff’s own conduct.” He claims to have attempted to buy the landlord replacement furniture. Brown says the landlord refused to let him back into the property.

Brown said he paid all money owed on the lease, plus extra. He claims to have 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 his landlord demanding the return of his $35,000 deposit.

In newly filed court documents, the landlord details the alleged damage including broken tables, burn holes in couches, stains on couches, droppings of food and/or vomit between couch cushions, black marker marks, stains on pillows, damage to artwork, scratches to leather chairs and various other issues.

The legal battle turned nasty when Brown showed up to be deposed in the case. His ex-landlord accused Brown of acting “belligerent” and was “extremely noncompliant and flagrantly disorderly.” Brown denied the allegations of being belligerent. He accused the landlord of ambushing him with media when he showed up.

Brown recently agreed to sit for a second deposition in the case.

The ex-NFL star is still dealing with a separate lawsuit accusing him of sexually assaulting a personal trainer. He recently counter-sued the woman.

Brown has been attempting to make a plea to the NFL asking them to allow him back in. He tweet, "No matter who you are, we all make mistakes in life. Some make one mistake and learn from it, some make mistakes multiple times before turning them into a teaching moment. Sometimes these mistakes cost you almost everything. But with faith in God and in myself I know that my time will come again. "
