The statement also says that Beckham is preparing a complaint for civil extortion.
The new allegations say Beckham’s team initially offered $225,000 to drop the lawsuit but later rescinded. That could be because they are preparing to claim extortion.
The man suing Beckham claims he attended a party hosted by the Giants receiver and had a gun pulled on him and was beaten up while there by Beckham’s bodyguard. Beckham says the man showed up to the party drunk and belligerent and was asked to leave.
