Brees awarded $6M in diamond-fraud lawsuit

A San Diego Court has awarded Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife $6.1 million in a lawsuit against a jeweler.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that a Superior Court jury made the award Friday in a fraud suit Brees and his wife filed against a La Jolla jeweler past year.

Last season, Brees set the career passing-yardage record for National Football League quarterbacks.

"It was our position that Mr. Moradi breached his fiduciary duty, and that's essentially what the jury said", Brees attorney Andrew Kim said.

Kylian Mbappe says he could emulate Reds star with career move
As per every single summer, the most expensive footballers in world football are linked to the handful of clubs able to afford them, with Mbappe no different.

In one instance, Brees' attorney Rebecca Riley said Moradi sold the National Football League star a diamond for $8.1 million that was actually worth $3.75 million. Riley pointed to another purchase in which Moradi allegedly claimed a diamond was from Europe when it was from an Orange County dealer.

"Dinelli is supposed to be an independent expert, not a competitor to (Moradi's company) CJ Charles", Ross said. Instead, Ross says Brees got "just what he paid for", and that numerous diamonds were purchased as gifts for Brees' wife, Brittany. The total amount the Breeses paid Moradi was $15 million.

Moradi's attorney, Peter Ross, says the Houston-based jeweler the Breeses consulted was a "con man" who scammed the couple.

"How could he possibly know that Drew Brees had been ripped off?" The defense also claimed any differences in prices were due to standard markups by businesses to cover expenses, according to CBS 8 in San Diego.
