NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel has denied that he played any role in destroying a mansion in Los Angeles, California.

Real estate manager Danny Fitzgerald claims he rented a Weidlake mansion out to a guy named Bryan Chase, but the former Heisman winner was paying the rent, according to TMZ Sports.

Fitzgerald claims Manziel and his crew have caused $180,000 in damages to the house while also now not paying rent. He also told TMZ Sports, “It’s like this is a movie about a frat house … but the worst frat house you have ever seen. It’s like Charles Manson is living here.” (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: The Media Is Largely Responsible For Johnny Manziel’s Downfall)

However, the former Cleveland Browns quarterback has fired back at Fitzgerald’s claim.

“I never rented a house in the hills. I’ve been staying with a friend when I’ve been in L.A. which, as of late, has not been much. This guy is upset with a friend of mine and dragging me into it,” Manziel said in a statement to TMZ Sports. (RELATED: Meet The Playboy Model Johnny Manziel Is Vacationing With In Mexico [PHOTOS])

The electric dual-threat quarterback has since returned to Texas A&M for classes. The drama of Johnny Football never appears to end.
