Hours after TMZ Sports reported that Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi was being sued for $25,000 after apparently damaging a Los Angeles mansion, the Super Bowl champion's representatives have adamantly denied the allegations.
The NFL player has denied the claims in the lawsuit, which he called "bogus", and said he didn't damage the property in any way, nor host any parties, according to TMZ.
Ajayi was in Los Angeles to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" with fellow Eagles running back Corey Clement on February 5, though it's unclear if his appearance coincides with the dates of the alleged incident.
Ajayi is also accused of breaking a table, scratching the floor and violating a rule that prevents smoking. For each of the alleged parties, the owner charged Ajayi $5,000.

The complainant alleged that they had been attacked a couple of times earlier also and had been living in fear in the locality. Talking about the hockey sticks in their hands, the residents claimed that they had the sticks because of dogs menace.
The suit, filed by the owner, is seeking the damages for three parties held after the Eagles' Super Bowl win over the Patriots.
On Feb. 18, the owner said he confronted Ajayi, and claims the running back pushed him "in a menacing and threatening manner", and local security had to remove him.
Eagles running back Jay Ajayi really hit the jackpot past year when the God-awful Miami Dolphins traded him to Philadelphia in the midst of what became a Super Bowl-winning season. Ajayi appears to be in line to be the team's No. 1 back this fall. As a result of this request, the rep says Ajayi and his friend left the mansion a few days early, but still paid the full amount.
