Nearly a year later, weird moments continue to spring from the well of oddities that was Super Bowl XLVII. The latest absurdity is a lawsuit involving Jacoby Jones and After Party Entertainment (APE).
According to TMZ, APE is suing Jones for showing up late to a scheduled appearance at the House of Blues following the big game. Jones was slated to appear from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., but didn’t arrive until around 12:15 a.m.
The Ravens receiver was held up a little bit because, you know, his team had just won the Super Bowl, and there are media obligations with that kind of thing. Besides, the guy had arguably the biggest play in the game with his 108-yard kickoff return.
APE also contests that Jones brought double the amount of people he was allotted, and then demanded they all get in free. As a result, they are reportedly suing the player for $192,000 and attorney’s fees.
Turns out there is a downside to getting paid thousands of dollars just to party in a bar. Who knew?
