Ravens running back Gus Edwards is suing a Los Angeles strip club after he says he and a friend were robbed at gunpoint outside the establishment.
According to the lawsuit obtained from TMZEdwards and his friend Loomis Zayzay arrived at Crazy Girls on December 11, 2021 and paid $60 to park their vehicle at the club’s valet.
After spending an hour at the strip club, Edwards claimed in the legal documents that five masked men – each with a firearm – got out of a car and demanded their jewelry as he and his friend were about to pick up the vehicle.
According to the lawsuit, the alleged robbers got away with a $50,000 necklace and a $25,000 watch and a $60,000 Audemars Piguet watch from Zayzay.
Edwards is suing Crazy Girls and its valet, seeking more than $800,000 in damages, according to TMZ. He claims that he and his friend received video footage of the incident and that the club’s security guards did not intervene while the robbery was taking place.
Edwards also claimed the club’s chief of security told him to call 911. The documents say that the police arrived at the scene and recorded a report.
The Rutgers product alleges in the lawsuit that he and his friend were “rigged” into the robbery. About a week after the incident, Edwards claims a person with the Instagram name “Johnny Blaze” sent him a message saying the Ravens player had been “set up by valet.”
According to the lawsuit, the person “Johnny Blaze” told Edwards that the jewelry was taken to a local jewelry store – and that the jeweler “confirmed that someone tried to sell him” Edwards and Zayzay’s jewelry. The jeweler reportedly refused to buy the jewelry.
Edwards, who turns 27 next month, sat out the entire 2021 NFL season after tearing a cruciate ligament in a preseason practice session.
He has rushed for 2,152 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns since signing with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2018.
