Johnny Manziel has lost one of his strongest backers as LRMR, LeBron James’ marketing agency, has cut ties with embattled Browns QB who was reportedly seen partying in Vegas over the weekend while wearing a wig and a fake mustache.

“We’ve decided to end our formal business relationship with Johnny,” LRMR CEO and co-founder Maverick Carter said, per Vardon. “I will continue to support and advise him as a friend,” Carter said. “However, because Johnny needs to focus on personal growth, the next phase of his career and because LRMR continues to expand beyond marketing, we made the mutual decision that it was best to terminate our business relationship.”
LeBron addressed the whole Manziel situation today during shootaround.
“I think it’s more concern for him individually,” And I’m not quite sure, I don’t know all the details on it, I really kind of even haven’t been all up on it, but I’ve heard a little bit of it and it’s just a distraction for not only himself but for everyone that’s around him, including family, people that represent him, the people around him.
“And he’ll figure it out at some point, we all hope,”
It’s only a matter of time until Johnny is cut from the Browns but we’re going to have to wait for that.
