NFL Superstar in $400,000 War with Babyface's Ex

12/30/2010 10:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Indianapolis Colts superstar Dwight Freeney -- one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL -- has been hit with a $400,000 lawsuit for allegedly flaking on the rent for his recording studio.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Freeney -- who runs a record label -- agreed to pay $37,500 per month to rent out two floors in the famous Edmonds Tower building in Hollywood ... where Britney Spears has been known to cavort.

The tower is owned by Tracey Edmonds -- who was formally married to legendary music producer Babyface.

Freeney allegedly signed a one-year lease back in July and paid the first month's rent -- but hasn't paid a dime since.

The landlord is pissed -- claiming it could have leased the place out to other tenants -- but they were "induced" into sticking with Freeney because of his "financial stability through his career as a star NFL player."

The landlord wants $422,150 to make things right.

I would guess starting a record label is not all that expensive or complicated. Signing talent, on the other hand can't be easy or cheap.

I guess he thought the rent was too damn high.

Anyway, Obama was supposed to start paying the rent once he was elected.

What is with these guys who have more money than God and think they are so entitled to and expect everything for free and don't pay what they owe? Marc Anthony owes over 3 Million in back taxes. Maybe he can share a cell with Snipes.
