DALLAS, TX — It looks like Jerry Jones’ season is taking a turn for the worse. With his Cowboys on a roll lately, 2-1 is not bad, an off-the-field issue could spell trouble for the team owner.
Jones is being slapped with new allegations from a former stripper, who is suing the billionaire business mogul for a million dollars.
Amended court documents filed this week reveal Jana Weckerly hopes to penalize Jones for unnecessary roughness. She claims Jones paid her to keep quiet from 2009 to July 2013 as part of a cover-up so she would not report the alleged sexual assault to police.
In the original lawsuit earlier this month, Weckerly said she was the one who took the provocative photos of Jones with young women five years ago.
Jones’ legal team called the allegations “false” and “a money grab.” They released a statement after the lawsuit, saying it’s a “shakedown by a lawyer who is simply attempting to make a name for himself.”
Both sides will be back in court on Friday.
Attorneys for Jones will request the judge to throw out the lawsuit, claiming the statute of limitations has expired. But, if they are unsuccessful with their arguments and the case is allowed to go forward, it will be a hard one to sweep away under the turf inside AT&T Stadium.
