NFL Star -- My Landlord Is Sofa King Out of Line

9/19/2010 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-Carolina Panthers RB DeShaun Foster allegedly owes $10,000 in rent for a swanky Hollywood apartment -- but Foster's rep tells TMZ, there wouldn't be a problem if the place had furniture in it.

According to legal docs filed earlier this week in L.A. Superior Court -- and obtained by TMZ -- Foster's landlord claims the former Panther signed a $10,000-a-month lease for an apartment in the Hollywood Hills ... but hasn't even paid his first month's rent.

According to Foster's rep, the ex-NFL player agreed to the lease on one condition -- that the apartment would be fully furnished upon his arrival ... and it wasn't.

So-fa ... not so good.

Pretty simple here. If the rental contract stated it was a furnished apartment then Foster is correct. If nothing about it is in writing then the landlord is in the right.

Yeah you retards are very narrow minded..But its to be expected when it comes to celeb worshipers. 99.999% of Apartments that are in that price range normally come fully furnished with brand new stuff.

If the apartment was suppose to be fully furnished and its stated so in the contract than he's not in the wrong.

If anyone of you started to rent a place, doesn't matter if its 1500 a month of 10,000 and there was suppose to be furniture in it you would be pissed off and not pay either.

Do not pay the ten grand in rent! If you are not there why pay the rent! Just send a notarized letter to the apartment stating that you are not willing to pay due to extenuating cir***stances!
Does not make any sense to pay when you cannot play!
Plus, give the guy you signed the lease with the middle finger and tell him that the crib is not yours!
