• Adrien Broner's camp is scampering to produce needed financial records
  • Broner is told to stay away from Instagram
  • Broner requests to attend the next hearing virtually since he may be in quarantine for a scheduled fight

Adrien Broner is a free man once more after the former boxing champion was granted his release by the same county judge who placed him there.

However, “The Problem” would be wise to comply with the requirements tied to a civil lawsuit he is facing before the next hearing comes in December.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Nancy Margaret Russo softened up after previously tossing Broner in the slammer for contempt.

Broner and his camp failed to cooperate with the court asking the 31-year-old to show proof of his financial capacity.

“This is serious stuff,” Russo told Broner in a report from “I have the right to hold you in contempt until you answer every single one of these questions. Make life easy on yourself and answer the questions.”

Aware now that he is facing something serious, Broner was compelled to come up with the required documents.

After seemingly dodging a bullet initially, the woman accuser filed a civil lawsuit that Broner did not take seriously. Much of this was covered in a previous post.

Now realizing that they are in for a real battle, Broner’s attorney Stanley Jackson bared that they will fully comply with the orders of Judge Russo.

Jackson is also coordinating with civil attorneys Subodh Chandra and the Chandra Law Firm with regards to the records of the boxer’s finances.

This will include a signed copy of his January fight with Manny Pacquiao. Details have of that contract have yet to be revealed, but Broner claims that the fight contained a significant amount that could allow him to settle the amount tied to the lawsuit and put it to an end.

Broner needs roughly more than $800,000 to settle the lawsuit.

Furthermore, Broner claimed that he was broke last October, alleging he only had $13 in his pocket. However, his social media posts showed otherwise.

In an Instagram post, Broner showed off stacks of cash which he explained were given by his rich friends.

On Broner’s behalf, Jackson is requesting if it would be possible for the boxer to attend the hearing in December virtually. The reason for this is that he could be in quarantine in preparation for an upcoming fight.

The judge said she would consider it when the date of the hearing nears and if Broner takes her orders seriously.

Finally, Judge Russo also had one final advice before the hearing ended.

“Stay off Instagram,” she said. “Think about how much trouble Instagram has caused for you. And for what? If you think people are not watching your social media, you’re wrong.”
