Carolina Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton got sued for damaging a rental home



Carolina Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton is being sued for allegedly causing $100,000 in damages to a Beverly Hills, California, mansion he rented during the off-season in March. 

According to TMZ Sports, the lawsuit calls for the quarterback to pay $270,324 plus legal fees for damage and rent lost.

The lawsuit was filed by Jared Pobre, who is the husband of former WWE wrestler Stacy Kiebler. 

The lawsuit claims Newton paid $123,000 to rent the house for 61 days and agreed to stipulations like no parties, no smoking and no more than eight guests. 

The housekeeper was keeping tabs on Newton and told the rental company that he threw multiple parties and left cigarette ashes all over the house, according to FOX Sports

Pobre claims Newton broke an expensive fridge, caused water damage to the floors, ruined linens and trashed a $32,000 rug. 

Pobre added that the repairs to the home took two months to complete. 

This shouldn't be too much of a blow to Newton financially seeing as he's currently playing under a five-year, $103.8 million contract, according to Spotrac.com. 

On top of all this, Newton is dealing with some on-field issues this year. The Panthers are currently have a disappointing 1-3 record.
