Russell Wilson has been named in an unpaid wages lawsuit relating to a product which he endorses and for which he is also a minority owner.
TMZ Sports reports the news about the lawsuit involving the Seattle Seahawks QB. According to TMZ Sports, two employees of a food company called “Eat the Ball”, which manufactures bread in the shape of sports balls, claim they have not been paid by the company since July. They also reportedly allege in the suit that they did not get paid on multiple occasions.
The two company employees have filed to receive their unpaid wages plus damages.
Wilson was named in the suit because he is a company spokesperson and minority owner. This video promoting the product shows Wilson’s face on the product’s box:
