Ex-NFL star Rodney Peete is accused of pulling a fast one on a Super Bowl ticket broker -- allegedly squirming his way out of paying for VERY expensive seats ... and now the broker wants his cash!
The 53-year-old and his famous wife Holly Robinson Peete are being sued by Barry's Tickets -- a pretty famous business which sells tickets to high-profile events.
Barry's claims they offered Peete a discount -- they'd charge him $11,500 per ticket if he paid before Feb. 3 ... and the price would rise to $12,500 if he paid after.
Rodney agreed, according to the lawsuit -- but only wired $46,000 to Barry's.
Barry's says they gave Rodney the tickets under the assumption he'd deliver the second half of the money -- but he NEVER paid.
In fact, Barry's says Rodney strung them along for days until finally ghosting them in mid-February.
Now, Barry's demanding $54,000 for the tickets plus interest plus legal fees.
By the way, Rodney had a pretty long NFL career -- he played from 1989 to 2004 -- but never really signed a massive contract.
