I told you the other day about how Drake just lost a $60,000 bet to French Montana because of the NBA Finals, but maybe Dallas Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant should try to win that cash from French, ’cause dude’s on the hook to pay that exact amount after wrecking a rental house.

Bryant, who was staying at Tx. Senator Royce West’s property in suburban Dallas, is being sued for trashing the place like it was a fucking frat house, with West alleging Bryant left it in all sorts of a mess:

Per Dallas Morning News:

In court papers filed last week, attorneys for West call the treatment of the home “negligent and abusive.”

West discovered the 6,400-square-foot home “littered with trash and feces, missing blinds and shutters, with cracked windows and blackened carpeting” after Bryant moved out in January, and his lawyers say Bryant refuses to accept responsibility for the damage.

West is seeking between $100,000 and $200,000 in damages.

Lease documents show that Bryant was paying $4,720 a month for the home in a gated community, which he started renting in September 2013.

West took photos to document the damage, and it sure looks like Dez was living like a broke college kid while living there:

The lawsuit added:

West encountered “irreparable damage to carpeting, flooring, windows, shutters, and blinds; the presence of animal feces, trash, debris, and personal property inside the residence; and distinct and pervasive odors throughout” during the walk-through, the lawsuit says.

Because of the damage, West had to repaint the entire house, clean or replace all of the flooring and carpeting, replace the home security system, replace doors and windows and perform an extensive cleaning, among other repairs, according to the lawsuit. The repairs totaled $61,546.77.

The house has had several instances occur where police were called—ranging from a baby locked in a car to a stolen iPad—so it sounds as if it’s a house of horrors for the Pro Bowl receiver.
