Former Razorback and now Dallas Cowboy running back Darren McFadden is suing his former financial advisor. He claims the man embezzled money from him in the early 2000's Last June, McFadden sued Michael Vick, a longtime friend of the McFadden family who served as McFadden's business manager and financial adviser, alleging he misappropriated millions of dollars and mishandled his duties. Vick, who has denied all the allegations, isn't the former NFL quarterback of the same name who went to prison for his role in a dog-fighting ring.
On Friday, McFadden sued Ameriprise Financial Services Inc., for which Vick worked when he began managing McFadden's finances. The lawsuit accuses Ameriprise of being negligent and of actively concealing Vick's actions as he "manipulated ... Darren McFadden at a young age to seize broad and sweeping control over all of [McFadden's] professional income, assets and retirement savings, only to then methodically commandeer and misappropriate millions of dollars from [McFadden] over the course of eight years."
Court records show another lawsuit McFadden filed in 2016 against Vick is still pending before U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker and is set for trial the week of April 23, 2018.
