Former MLB pitcher Doc Gooden has found himself in more trouble. Back in 2005, Doc’s wife Monique filed for divorce after three years of an ugly marriage. At one point, Gooden was accused of hitting Monique after she allegedly threw a cell phone at him.
The problem with the divorce proceedings is that Gooden didn’t pay his lawyer fees, or so his attorneys say. According to TMZ, Doc’s lawyers are suing him for money they allege he owes them. The lawsuit states that Gooden hired the lawyers for $325/hour and has since racked up $15,254 in unpaid bills.
Gooden has battled drug and alcohol abuse problems throughout his life, even missing his own team’s World Series parade in 1986 because of them. He made an appearance on the show “Celebrity Rehab” a few years back after being arrested several times following his retirement from baseball. Judging by his latest lawsuit, I’d say things still aren’t going all that well for the three-time World Series champion.
