Updated March 9: Antonio Brown has been ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to pay Shuki International, the creator of the crystalized finger cover jewelry $1,095,000 because Brown has failed to return the borrowed pieces to their owner.

According to The New York Post, Jean Louis Shuki, the man who created the jewelry, has had his messages blown off by Brown since the former NFL player was ordered to pay him back.

“U caint [sic] get s–t cracker,” Brown said via text, according to the jeweler.

Brown has only responded by saying that the courts will not sway him. AB, who is now a “rapper,” refuses to give them back because they “boost his libido by fueling super orgasms,” according to Shuki.

“He’s a fanatic for the fingers,” Shuki, who created the pair to tribute Michael Jackson’s trademark peace sign, told the Post. “At this point, I don’t want the judgment, I just want the fingers back. They’re like the Mona Lisa.”


Antonio Brown has been ordered to cut a $1 million check to a celebrity jeweler who alleges the ex-NFL WR borrowed some pieces and never gave them back or paid for them, according to TMZ.

Jean Louis Shuki, the creator of Shuki International sued Brown in April of last year. The lawsuit states that Shuki gave AB a set of his signature diamond fingers — estimated to be worth $500k per finger — under the impression that Brown would either pay for them or give them back.

Shuki, who has made jewelry for Floyd Mayweather, also said that he gave Brown a rose gold black diamond set of the fingers, a white gold chain, and a ring in good faith that Brown would either return or pay for them, TMZ is reporting.

 

AB, years removed from taking off his pads and jersey, flashing a peace sign, and running off of the field at Metlife Stadium, has had money issues in the past. Brown has allegedly previously been late on child support payments to his ex, and behind on payments to his Arena Football League team, the Albany Empire. The National Arena League terminated his squad’s agreement for “failure to pay their league-mandated and overdue assessments.”

Brown hasn’t played in the NFL since 2021. He was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. AB also played for the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is a seven-time Pro Bowler and one-time Super Bowl champ with the Bucs.
