Antonio Brown Compelled To Pay Over $1 M To Jeweler For Unreturned Pieces

The eccentric celebrity “jewelry guy” called Shuki, specializing in highly expensive custom pieces for the rich and famous, has won his lawsuit against former NFL footballer Antonio Brown after Brown decided not to respond to the suit.

On that note, Brown has now been ordered to pay more than $1 million to Shuki over many pieces the jeweler says Brown borrowed and never returned or paid for, based on a TMZ report.

In April of the previous year, Shuki initiated legal action against Brown, alleging that in 2022, he had loaned several items, including a pair of distinctive diamond fingers valued at $500,000 each. The understanding was that Brown would either return the items or make a purchase decision within a reasonable timeframe.

When that timeframe elapsed and Shuki couldn’t reach Brown, the lawsuit was filed. Shuki calculated the total value of the loaned pieces at $1,095,000 and pursued legal action to recover that amount from Brown, who failed to respond to the suit in any manner.

This results in the present default judgment, and Brown is on the hook for the $1.095 million worth of jewelry — although maybe Shuki might be satisfied to only have his items back at long last.

It appears to still be a possibility, since despite Brown’s failure to respond to Shuki’s lawsuit or any of his phone calls, he was photographed around Los Angeles wearing one of the Shuki diamond fingers. But Brown is yet to respond publicly to news of the judgment. In the case of Shuki, he already shared a screenshot of the TMZ headline on his official Instagram account.

This ruling comes as Brown has many other legal and financial problems that he is dealing with. He has faced many other lawsuits and was recently dropped out of the National Arena League’s Albany Empire ownership group because of supposed failure to make the needed payments for payroll and other team expenses.
