Odell Beckham facing new allegations from man who is suing him
A $15 million lawsuit was filed against Odell Beckham Jr. back in March by a man who claims he was attacked at a party hosted by the New York Giants star, and Beckham is now facing a new batch of bombshell accusations from the alleged victim.
Ishmael Temple says he was at Beckham’s Beverly Hills home in January when he had a gun pulled on him by Beckham’s bodyguard for no reason and was later brutally beaten by the bodyguard and another man. In more recently filed documents that were obtained by TMZ, Temple’s attorney claims to have evidence of Beckham “offering $1k to sleep with a girl from Arizona visiting L.A. known to my client.” The lawyer also claims to have evidence of “drugs of the most prohibited types readily available and consumed” at parties hosted by Beckham.
Temple’s lawyer also said in the documents that Beckham’s legal team offered $225,000 to drop the lawsuit but later rescinded, though no reason was given as to why.
Beckham’s camp has denied all of the allegations from Temple, claiming he got into a fight with someone other than Beckham after he arrived to the party belligerent and intoxicated and was told to leave. They also say Temple demanded money from Beckham.
Beckham is seeking a long-term contract extension from the Giants, but some believe the team has been hesitant to give him one because of the compromising positions he puts himself in off the field. Earlier this offseason, a video appeared to show Beckham laying on a bed beside a woman who was cutting up a substance that looked like drugs.
