Antoine Walker Sued for Sleeping with Man’s Fiancée
Right now life isn’t exactly fantastic for Antoine Walker, the NBA’s all-time leader in both shimmies and four-pointers attempted. After blowing through a phenomenal amount of dough (he earned over $110 million in his career) and struggling to return to the league, the last thing he wants is to be exposed to more financial liabilities. Unfortunately for ‘Toine, that’s exactly what happened when a Chicago resident by the name of Kevin Jenkinsfiled a suit claiming that Antoine Walker not only slept with his fiancée but convinced her to kick him out of their residence while Walker waited outside in his Range Rover.
The lady in question is one Johanna Edelberg, whose name last showed up in the papers in 2001 when her roommate committed suicide after the two smoked marijuana in their Manhattan apartment. Both women were then working as plus-size models for NYC’s famed Wilhelmina Models agency, and a quick Google search turns up a number of photoshoots featuring the curvy Ms. Edelberg in such a capacity.
Jenkins, the plaintiff, is seeking a princely $5 million from Walker for his intent to "taunt, ridicule, and belittle" Jenkins and for the "emotional distress" caused to the latter. Good luck, Mr. Jenkins: If recent reports are anything to go by, you’ll be lucky to squeeze $50 out of the forward currently pulling in an annual salary of under $25K with the NBDL’s Idaho Stampede.
