Keyshawn Johnson Sued Over Imaginary Bowling Alley

Keyshawn Johnson -- Sued Over Imaginary Bowling Alley

Keyshawn Johnson is being sued over an AWESOME in-home bowling alley ... problem is, it was never built ... and Key is calling BS on the whole situation. 

Here's the long story short ... Key used to own a patch of expensive land in Calabasas right near the mansion he sold to Kourtney Kardashian

Key planned to build a massive new home on the dirt patch -- complete with a cool in-home bowling alley, wine room and more -- and hired a design firm to draw up the plans.

But here's the rub, the house never got built and Key eventually moved out of town ... but according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Johnson never paid the design company what it claims it was owed for drawing up the blueprints. 

Now, a collection agency is on Key's ass -- looking to recover more than $40k in back payments for the mansion that never was. 

But Johnson says it's all a baseless money grab -- claiming the blueprints were drawn up by his architect, not the designer ... and he doesn't believe he owes the designer a single cent. 

"Be careful who you deal with. Everybody's looking for a buck. You can't get paid for work you didn't do."

BTW -- Key eventually sold the plot of land ... and to this day, it remains an undeveloped pile of dirt ... with no bowling alley. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
