Tampa Bay Bucs

Ex-Cheerleader Demands $661k

I'm Fighting For the Whole Squad!

A former Tampa Bay Bucs cheerleader is demanding $661k from the NFL squad -- claiming that's how much cash she and her fellow pom-pommers were underpaid by the team over the last 5 years. 

TMZ Sports has obtained a letter that lawyers for Manouchcar Pierre-Val sent to the Bucs org. after she sued the team for allegedly paying the ladies far less than what Florida law dictates for minimum wage. 

In her suit, Pierre-Val argued the girls were only paid $100 per game ... and zero for practice time and other team events ... which added up to less than $2-per-hour.

Now, Pierre-Val's team is demanding the team fork over a check for at least $661k that all of the girls who have been on the squad over the last 5 years can split. 

Pierre-Val's number is based on the fact the team has roughly 34 women on the squad per season ... which means each lady would be owed close to $4k per year they cheered for the Bucs. 

We reached out to the Bucs for comment -- so far, no word back ... but we should note, the Bucs have previously filed court docs in response to the suit in which the team denies any wrongdoing.

$!00 per game is pathetic. That doesn't even cover the cost. $500 a game would be more reasonable for a team that makes millions.

The only Problem with this girl is she is suing on Behalf of the other woman, and if she wins she does not have to give one Penny to the other Girls if their name is not on the Lawsuit.

OK    

She won't get a dime. They can find girls that will do that for free.
