ORLANDO, Fla. — A chef is suing former Pittsburgh Steelers and current Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, claiming Brown owes him nearly $40,000 for cooking during the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl weekend.
The lawsuit names Stefano Tedeschi as a celebrity chef who has appeared on ESPN and Fox Sports, and has been hired at times for cooking at private events for NFL sponsors and players. The suit said Tedeschi and Brown "entered into a verbal contract" and that Tedeschi would cook for Brown's family and friends during the weekend of the 2018 Pro Bowl.
Court documents said Tedeschi cooked all the meals, and that Brown still had not paid.
The suit put the total owed to Tedeschi at $38,521.
