In only the short span of 10 months, Former Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson watched as his generousity toward family and friends resulted in the departure of almost $2 million of his fortune.
Trent ‘s story is the subject of an E:60 segment, where he reveals his off-field troubles to Shelley Smith:
Richardson: “I just made sure that my immediate family was taken care of. And so then it came to everybody outside immediate family. You got people coming from everywhere.”
Smith: “What kind of calls did you get?”
Richardson: “You get calls, ‘Man, my car’s gonna get repo’d.’ So I’m like ‘OK, how much is it? Oh that’s it? Alright, I’ll send it to you.’ Send it out to em.”
Smith: “How did you send it? Wire it?”
Richardson: “Wire it out. Give $10,000 this week away. Then the next week you get a call the next week, ‘Man, somebody’s gonna repo my house. I’m fitting to get evicted.’ Another $10,000 go out. It’s stuff like that that adds up.”
