Former Mets and Phillies outfielder/tobacco enthusiast Lenny Dykstra settled a lawsuit with an accounting firm over an unpaid bill of nearly $139,000 yesterday, and as he left court, he awesomely crashed into the metaphorical outfield wall of good taste. From the New York Post:
[Dykstra] bragged that plaintiff DDK & Co. “folded like Mitch Williams in the ninth… There was no case. There was nothing.” [...]
[He] also laughed off another recent suit that accuses him of being a deadbeat. Halcyon Jets alleged this month that Dykstra bounced a $7,000 check for a September flight from Las Vegas to Van Nuys, Calif.
“That’s my f- – -in’ ashtray money, bro,” he said. “I don’t even know if I flew on their plane.” Dykstra also showed The Post the jacket lining of his charcoal-gray pinstripe suit. “See that purple label, bro? That’s seven large,” he said.[...]
Dykstra – who claims to have reaped $60 million playing the stock market – …said he was losing $500,000 a month on [his magazine The Players Club] but wasn’t worried. “It’s not about money,” he said. “It’s about giving back.”
You can tell that Dykstra is really rich and has no financial problems whatsoever because he’s talking about how expensive his clothes are. Fabulously wealthy people always do that. Ignore the multiple lawsuits over unpaid bills, he has a fancy suit! And those Twizzlers are organic, bro!
