Trent Richardson is picked on quite a bit for being a bust, but the former Alabama star spoke about how his family blew threw 1.6 million dollars of his money over 10 months.
ESPN’s Shelley Smith for “E:60,” Richardson revealed that his family and close friends blew threw $1.6 million of his money between the months of January 2015 and October 2015.
“I finally just looked at my bank statement, and I was just like, ‘Where did this come from? Where did that come from?’” Richardson recalled. “And my guy was sitting there telling me, ‘Man, we were telling you.’ I know he was telling me, but that’s just like telling a kid to stop running in the hall. They’re going to still do it when you turn your back.”
“I was like, ‘How did y’all spend this money?’ I spent $300 in two weeks,” he said. “Y’all are trying to live a lifestyle that I’m not even living, that y’all think I should be living.”
“It’s just one of them moments to where I was just blinded by my heart, by loving everybody and thinking that everyone was for me,” Richardson admitted. “I know they love me. I know they do care. But at the time, they took advantage of it.”
Richardson admits that his family took advantage of him a bit, but the former Bama star should have been smarter with his money. This is pretty insane. Richardson said his family purchased bottles of liquor, VIP tickets to the club, and he had over 20 accounts for Hulu and Netflix, but yet never used the account. Pretty wild stuff.
