Reports reveal that NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel has been fired by his new agent Drew Rosenhaus after being spotted at Coachella.
Rosenhaus has made it clear just the previous week that if Manziel had failed to enter a facility to control his substance abuse issues, the agent would walk from their relationship. After videos and images emerged of Manziel partying at Coachella over the weekend, Rosenhaus officially declared their relationship finished.
Rosenhaus told ESPN reporter Adam Schefter last week; “I have informed him that if he takes the immediate steps I have outlined for him that I will rescind the termination and continue to represent him. Otherwise the termination will become permanent. There is a five-day window for me to rescind the termination. I’m hoping he takes the necessary steps to get his life back on track.”
A source reported that Manziel had “arrived wasted, partied wasted, and stayed wasted” as well as being spotted “dancing and sweaty” around celebrities such as Scott Disick ands Kendal and Kylie Jenner. Manziel has previously attended rehab but has since ignored continuous sessions.
Rosenhaus will have been the second agent Manziel has lost in a matter of months. In addition, his domestic assault case involving his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley is set to appear before a grand jury on Thursday. Manziel has also been connected to a situation where he allegedly threw Crowley’s head threw a window.
