Syndergaard attempted to set the record straight on Twitter on Saturday in a heated dispute with its owner – who claims that the 27-year-old athlete did not pay rent for the Tribeca penthouse at $ 27,000 per month for which he has registered.
The owner insists that Syndergaard honor the eight-month lease that the launcher signed in February.
“I honestly and in good faith offered to pay a landlord 2 months’ rent (over 50,000 euros) for a place I would never walk because of a global pandemic that has taken a heavy toll on New York residents “, Syndergaard started its Twitter missive.
The Mets star, nicknamed Thor, said he gave timely notice so that the owner of 116 Hudson Street could try to re-let the three-bedroom duplex.
The owner – claiming a contract is a contract – has filed a lawsuit against Syndergaard, who is recovering at a rehabilitation center in Florida after undergoing successful surgery at Tommy John, it was learned Friday.
The lawsuit seeks $ 250,000 for the full value of the lease.
“The owner is trying to extort 250K from me by leaking this story to the media, and I’m the bad guy?” Yeah OK. Go to court, ”threatened Syndergaard on Saturday.
