Attorney Jack Goodrich claims his two clients, orthopedic doctor Victor Prisk and personal assistant Robert Leo, have not been paid by Brown, who now plays for the Oakland Raiders.

Goodrich told WPXI his clients worked with Brown from August of last year until March when Brown was traded to the Oakland Raiders.

He said Prisk would make house calls to Brown's home for services. The calls added up and Brown never paid his $11,000 bill, the lawyer said.

According to Goodrich, Brown even sent him this text message saying, "Bro I owe u money? Surprising to me sad thes (sic) days with people like you."

In a second civil suit filed Friday, Goodrich said Brown owes his ex-personal assistant more than $16,000. Leo is claiming he used his own credit card to pay expenses for Brown, including groceries.

"Mr. Leo sent a letter to Mr. Brown saying, 'Please pay me,' and silence," Goodrich said.

Goodrich told WPXI neither of his clients want media attention. They just want the former Steelers star to take care of his responsibilities.

"We hope he mans up and takes responsibility like a real Pittsburgher would and just pay your bill," Goodrich said.

Brown's representatives have not responded to WPXI's request for comment.

This is the latest issue plaguing the Raiders player after Brown got into a fight with a team official, had issues with his helmet and got frostbite on his feet.

Additionally, a chef in Florida said he is owed $40,000 for cooking for Brown during the 2018 Pro Bowl weekend.
