According to the filed complaint, the financial manager, David Wells (who is alleged to have a record of financial claims against him) chosen by West took off with over $200,000 in endorsement money owed to Bryant, while West and his law firm, West & Associates, L.L.P. received over $300,000 in fees from Bryant despite failing to fulfill fiduciary duties.
This counterclaim comes on the heels of the lawsuit Royce West filed against Bryant for allegedly damaging a home he rented from West.
