Dallas Cowboy, Tyron Smith is being harassed by his family for money.
 
Family members have been pressuring http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/dal/dallas-cowboys" rel="nofollow - Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13978/tyron-smith" rel="nofollow - Tyron Smith for money, sources told ESPNDallas.com.

According to a police report obtained by the Dallas Morning News, a 911 call was made after family members showed up at Smith's North Dallas home and proceeded to "harass and torment" him "in the pursuit of collecting financial gain."

It was just the latest in a series of attempts to get money from Smith, sources confirmed Thursday after the situation was first reported by the newspaper.

Smith declined comment after Wedneday's practice at the team's facilities in Valley Ranch.

According to sources, family members have continued to ask Smith for money even after he gave them a large sum after he was picked ninth overall in the 2011 NFL draft and signed to a four-year, $12.5 million contract by the Cowboys.

Smith filed a protective order during the summer against his mother, Frankie Pinkney, and stepfather, Roy Pinkney, sources said. Smith has three sisters and two brothers, who also are prohibited from making contact with Smith on behalf of his parents.

Multiple sources told the Morning News that Cowboys security had to remove one of Tyron Smith's family members from the team's practice facility during training camp in Oxnard, Calif., about two hours from Riverside, where Smith's parents own a cleaning business.

Smith grew up working in the cleaning business with his mother and stepfather. After he was drafted, he talked lovingly of them, and the Cowboys mentioned how well he was raised.

Smith is being represented by Dallas-based attorneys Royce West and John Schorsch, who said the player was forced to turn to authorities to handle the matter.

"Lesser means were tried and they weren't successful," Schorsch told the Morning News. "You can use your own imagination as to what it took for a guy that big and that imposing to be that worried."

Schorsch told ESPNDallas.com Thursday that Smith is "a good kid. This is hard on him. But he's handled this with dignity and grace, I'm proud of the manner in which he's handled it."

Joe Panos, Smith's agent, declined comment.

"I think every player and every coach, really around this league, have different things going on in their lives and you just have to come into work and do your job as best as you can," coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, adding that he didn't see the issue affecting Smith.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday: "He's handling his business. It's personal but Tyron is a man and everybody has things they have to handle personally and I have a lot of confidence he'll handle it."

They all look bad with the airing of the dirty laundry in public.  I hope Mr. Smith handles his new riches better than most NFL players.  He might need his family to loan him some green if he winds up injured or bankrupt.

Greed.

They should be ashamed of themselves...

The fact that he had to get a restraining order speaks volumes as to the level of stalking and harassing.

smh

Tyron is a good guy.
 
he was the youngest player in the league last year and i think his folks and other family members are taking advantage of him being so young to guilt him into helping him out.

The entire family looks bad to include Mr. Smith.  He doesn't have to give his family a thin dime if he doesn't want to but he is sadly mistaken if he thinks that his family is the worst of his troubles.  He is only a year into a four-year contract.  There will be many, many vultures out there to take advantage of him financially.  New money usually doesn't last long especially with no support.  His family may be the lesser of an evil world.  Odds are he will need them in the future, but maybe he will beat the odds.  Time will tell.

you saying Tyron looks bad too?
 
i think he knows the concerns of family members coming out of nowhere demanding cash but his own parents?! dude had to put a protective order against the folks. he got family members showing up to his practices trying to get money from him.
 
its at the point where he fears for his safety. i doubt he'll need them for anything in the future tbh.

So he shouldn't have gone to the authorities? If so, is it because it's his family? If it was a stranger would he have been justified in seeking legal assistance. I'm trying to figure out what in the article indicates that he has handled the situation incorrectly. I'm not sure I understand this logic.

ETA: All I know about situation is what is in the article. According to the article, he was being criminally harassed. He has a right to pursue  action irrespective of the relationship with his harasser(s). No  one would dare tell a wife and victim of domestic violence that she should have never gone public, or to the police, or that she's wrong for airing their dirty laundry.

Whats the difference here?

they are the worst of his troubles -- currently.

i can't imagine having to get a restraining order against my Mama over some bread.

he gave them money and they still aren't satisfied. they are the vultures of which you speak.

even if its the 'lesser' of two evils, its (they) are still evil

People lose their minds when money is involved.

Showing up at his practice for money was so unnecessary. This is one of the main reasons I always say if I win the lotto (which I don't even play), I'm not telling a soul.

i don't think Tyrone looks bad. Did anyone see ESPN's broke? A lot of them spent their money on leeching family members. 

The article said he already gave them a lump sum and im sure he probably bought his parents a house. I'm sure his entire family is asking for money left and right. 

How much is money is enough?

It looks bad when families fight in public.  Doesn't matter who is right or wrong.  People will raise eyebrows especially when it involves a son and his mother.  I feel sorry for the guy actually.  There are no winners.

I'm sorry, but I think this is that logic that keeps a lot of black families trapped in cycles (abuse, neglect, etc.)....for fear of airing the family's business.

I don't see the logic in giving broke non money-minded people large lump sums of cash anyway.
just a set up for failure for everyone involved.

though the article does say his parents had a business so who knows...

he isn't fighting in public.
 
the local reporters are the ones that broke the story. at this juncture Tyron hasn't even spoken on the situation at hand.

it says his mother and father own a business in California, doesn't mention anythinga bout her being strung out.
 
the latest news is he is missing 1 million dollars and the mom is blaming this on his current girlfriend:
 
A lawyer representing Cowboys offensive tackle Tyron Smith says that the budding NFL star’s family has not only continually demanded money from his client but also has taken a substantial amount from the 21-year-old.

Dallas-based attorney John Schorsch said he will have a forensic accountant review Smith’s finances in an effort to find where more than $1 million has gone and likely will pursue legal action.

When reached by phone late Thursday, Frankie Pinkney, Smith’s mother, strongly denied that the family took any of Smith’s money without his authorization or harassed or threatened him in any way.

“I don’t know anything about any missing money,” Pinkney said. “The money that we did receive from Tyron was all accounted for and everything is in writing, and he’s authorized all of it.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Dallas police responded to a 911 call to Smith’s North Dallas home, where siblings showed up to “harass and torment” him “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain,” according to the police report.

Smith has three stepsisters and two stepbrothers. Two of the stepsisters, Tiari Dennis and Brittany Pinkney, were among at least three people who showed up at Smith’s home Saturday and Tuesday, Frankie Pinkney confirmed. The police report did not name the individuals.

It is the latest in a string of events over several months in which family members have tried to harass Smith for their financial benefit, according to Schorsch and Cowboys sources.

Frankie Pinkney denied any family demands for any money.

Early Thursday, Frankie Pinkney emailed a statement to The Dallas Morning News denying that the latest family interaction was financially motivated. She supported her daughters and said that her son has “hurt” and “betrayed” her. Pinkney also put the blame for the family’s fallout on Smith’s girlfriend, Leigh Costa.

Pinkney said that Costa, 26, wouldn’t let her daughters in the door.

“They had not seen nor talked to him in months due to a family disagreement, which by the way, was not about finances,” Pinkney said in the statement. “The family disagreement was about his girlfriend, who is five years older than Tyron, who is a big part of the confusion in our family right now.

“Leigh reported that my daughters were threatening her and they were demanding money. My daughters did not make any threats.”

Smith and Costa have dated for almost a year now. Smith bought his North Dallas home earlier this year, and Costa lives with him.

Nothing she’s saying is factual,” Costa said about Smith’s mother’s statement. “I didn’t do anything. I’m a drive-by victim to his family’s chaos.”

Added Schorsch, “His mom is effectively saying none of this is about money, and it’s Leigh’s fault. Leigh doesn’t have a restraining order on her. Leigh didn’t take any money. She didn’t do anything. Leigh is a third-party victim standing in the line of fire from these people, and it’s unfortunate.”

Over the summer, Smith filed a family safety protective order against his stepfather, Roy Pinkney, and his mother to keep them from having any contact with him or Costa. The protective order also prohibits contact from Smith’s parents through his siblings. Smith’s parents own a cleaning business in Riverside, Calif., near their home in Moreno Valley.

“In order to get a restraining order of that nature you have got to provide certain evidence of threatening violence, and obviously those were met,” Schorsch said. “The mom and/or the stepdad, the collective group of family, have threatened the physical well being of Tyron and the life of his girlfriend.”

Smith’s mother denied any threats were made by any family member.

“Oh, no. Trust me, there were no threats made whatsoever,” Pinkney said, “and this is all to protect his girlfriend, Leigh.”

Sources said Smith gave his family a substantial amount of money after signing a four-year, $12.5 million contract in July 2011 after he was drafted with the ninth overall pick out of the University of Southern California.

Frankie Pinkney declined to say how much money her son gave her.

“It was structured over a period of time. He’s agreed to give us a certain amount over a certain period of time throughout his contract,” Pinkney said.

“Ridiculous claim,” Schorsch said late Thursday night, “but very revealing of her inability to recognize the innate parasite mentality that is systemic around these young athletes. Obviously the enemy within the family is most dangerous to these young athletes.”

Around the time that Smith was drafted, he hired Florida-based Merrill Lynch financial adviser Rich DeLuca at the urging of his parents. Smith has since parted ways from DeLuca, who could not be reached for comment.

During the time that DeLuca and Smith’s parents helped manage Smith’s finances, sources said a substantial amount of money turned up missing.

“I’m not certain of the amount of money that’s gone,” Schorsch said. “I would suggest to you that the numbers are in the seven digits that need to be accounted for. I don’t know how much of that, if any, is a legitimate gift and how much of that is squeezed out of him or how much of that is flat out taken. And I know of the latter two categories it’s a bunch.

“I’m going to make sure all the money is justified and it’s not going to be pretty.”

The NFL Players Association is not currently investigating the Pinkneys or DeLuca, who has represented NFL players but is not currently registered with the NFLPA. Frankie Pinkney said DeLuca could do nothing without Tyron’s authorization.

In Frankie Pinkney’s 504-word statement, she acknowledged the rift the family faces.

Pinkney said she last saw her son June 16 when the Cowboys tackle worked a one-day youth football camp at his high school. Sources said there was a verbal altercation with family at that camp.

Pinkney said that meeting didn’t go well, saying her son was not ready to talk.

Pinkney said state Sen. Royce West flew out to California earlier in the summer to discuss Smith’s financial concerns. West also represents Smith.

“He was sort of like a mediator,” Pinkney said “His main goal was to bring the family back together.”

But that trip did not solve the family’s issues.

“I know most mothers would say their sons would never hurt them nor betray them for anyone,” Frankie Pinkney said in her statement. “I’m here to tell you that I thought the same thing, but it happened to me.”

Cowboys security is aware of Smith’s family situation and has an organizational structure in place to help Smith avoid incidents around the club, multiple sources said.

Smith declined to comment Wednesday when approached in the Cowboys’ locker room and didn’t make himself available for comment Thursday.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that he doesn’t believe that Smith’s off-the-field situation has affected his play.

“I think every player and every coach, really around this league, they have different things going on in their lives and you just have to come into work and do your job as best you can,” Garrett said.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said he has “a lot of confidence” that Smith “will handle it.”

Smith has tried to maintain his focus this week with the Cowboys (3-4) on the road Sunday against 7-0 Atlanta.

“I think he carries a great deal of weight on his shoulders, Schorsch said. “I think he carries a heavy heart.”

Sadly, I am  not surprised by this at all.  I have a family member who used to be in the NFL.  He retired more than 10 years ago and he still gets hounded.  Lucky for him, his mom was the one to tell him not to give his money away.  He barely goes to family events because they start blowing up his phone.  The people who he would gladly help, don't even ask. 

I used to not understand why he refused to come around the family until he really told me how much people harass.  It actually pisses me off because he misses be around family but he hates the drama it causes.  Its like people don't  realize that he hasnt worked and since he was 35 and he has to live off that money he has.

mind you, Ty was only 20 when he got drafted and he was the number 9 overall pick in the draft. his mom and stepdad saw this as an oppurtinity to take advantage of him being so young and naive. after he gave them a "large sum" they still stole over million dollars.

Its his money and he can spend it all on his Snow Bunny if he wants to.

His family should not be stalking him at home and surely not at work.

He gave them money, they want more. They are not entitled TO sht.

no offense to the white posters, but white women age badly. a 26 year old woman can look like she's in her mid 30's.

No one understands what athletes deal with except other athletes.

If he gives them all this cash that they're asking for who's going to help him out when he goes broke?
No one. I would stay selfish. Oh well.

I still feel bad...I know what it's like to be guilted into giving people money. I don't know why people think military=$$$$. I still get phone calls on the 1st and 15th. I don't mind helping out my mom because she would only ask me for money if she was in dire need, but I tell everyone else I can't help them.

Hell, at one point in my career, I qualified for food stamps...not ballin at all

Mo money mo problems

They weren't out there with him when he was training and conditioning every day. They are only entitled to what he wants to give. Some people feel they owe their parents for raising them and providing for them; therefore they are generous when they are in a position to be. Whatever this man's reasons are for not giving out his money is not up for debate. It is possible he planned on putting his money away for awhile to save and invest to set him up for life, then with a later paycheck he would divide up among the family. Now, he sees what is what and who is who. Fugg em..I'd cut them off too

I learned long ago, just because one is a family member does not mean that they love me or even like me.  FAMILY will use you 100000% times worst than any stranger.  Eventually, he might end up having to cut them out his life 1000%.
 
I'm feel sorry for him, that is why even just regular working people its best not to tell everyone your financial business.  People don't need to know your salary, your husbands salary, if you get a new promotion at work...some things its best to keep to yourself.

Parents are supposed to do things like that for their kids and expect nothing in return..simply put. The only thing parents should really expect is for their kids to make them proud not rich. It is his talent not theirs.

BTW by the tone of your post you sound like you're one of the family membersSleepy

The coldest part is that it really doesn't. It was his and his mothers prior to the marriage should the marriage not last, then he keeps the house. I don't blame her for saying that though..I would say the same thing.

I like this post

+2. Its almost like a wife who marries rich. You don't expect your hubby to just give his money to you since its HIS money/his talent but if you've been dating long enough to support his craft then it would be nice if you didn't have to ask. I'm quite sure his talent was supported with all the things named above. Its not a parent's job to do all of that. Its hard enough to make it as is. Those who do are star parents in my book. Going above and beyond what most parents do for the sake of their child's happiness. HOWEVER, they've been given money. They are just greedy. good for him for taking a stance.
