Retired NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is now believed to be caught up in an ongoing saga involving Voyager
NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is facing new legal scrutiny for his involvement in the turbulent world of crypto. Plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against the Dallas Mavericks and team owner Mark Cuban have issued a subpoena to Gronkowski regarding the footballer’s endorsement of cryptocurrency company Voyager Digital, The Atletic reports.
Gronkowski became a Voyager Digital brand ambassador in September 2021 and his high-profile endorsement has reportedly played a role in attracting customers who have invested in the controversial product.
The lawsuit alleges that numerous customers were misled by Cuban and others who falsely advertised the platform.
In court filings, plaintiffs’ attorneys said they plan to prosecute Gronkowski alongside Cuban and other defendants involved in Voyager. An email attachment included in their motion alleges that depositions from Gronkowski and NASCAR driver Landon Cassill have been made or are pending.
When approached to comment on speculation that he would become a named defendant in the case, Gronkowski’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined to comment further, according to the report.
It’s unclear at this point when, if at all, prosecutors will decide to add Gronkowski as an official defendant or if Voyager Digital will resolve his current issues.
