Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Tennis Coach, Demands 20% For Life

Published

on

The tennis coach who began working with Naomi Osaka back when she was 13 claims her father signed a contract promising him 20% of her career earnings … and now he’s coming to collect.

The man behind the lawsuit is Christophe Jean — who says Naomi’s father, Leonard Francois, hired him to work with Naomi and his other daughter, Mari, back in 2011.

Jean says Francois couldn’t pay his rates at the time, so they struck a deal in which Jean agreed to accept 20% of Naomi and Mari’s tennis prize money and endorsement deals forever.

That’s not a typo … Jean says he has a copy of the contract where Francois agrees that the term of the deal is “indefinite.” It’s included in Jean’s suit, filed in state court in Florida.

Of course, Naomi — now 21 years old — has blossomed into a tennis superstar, currently ranked #1 in the world … and famously beat Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.

ccording to the official WTA website, she’s made more than $10.8 MILLION during her career — and that’s not including endorsement money.

So, Jean wants his cut — at least $2 million — which is why he’s suing Naomi, Mari and Leonard.

The other possible issue … can a parent promise a cut of a minor child’s future adult earnings? And, can a judge enforce such a contract?

It’s not exactly cut and dry. We’re looking into it.

Ronaldo was superb for Juventus on Tuesday night, March 12, scoring three goals against Atletico Madrid which sent the Old Lady to the quarterfinal of the Champions League.

And after scoring the third goal, Ronaldo is said to have mocked Diego Simeone with a crotch-grabbing celebration in front of the travelling fans as emotions ran away with him on the night.

Atletico Madrid manager Simeone was hit himself with a ban following his celebration against Juventus in the first leg which ended 2-0 in Spain.

According to the latest report by UK Sun, UEFA may likely take the same judgment on Ronaldo’s celebration against Atletico Madrid.

And if they do, then it means that Cristiano Ronaldo will miss one of Juventus’ Champions League encounter against their imminent opponents.
