Evander Holyfield Says Movers Holding Property Hostage
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Evander Holyfield is accusing a home mover company of holding his personal property hostage, by refusing to return items they stored for him and now he has headed to court.
Atlanta Peach Movers, a company that provides packing, moving and storage services, sued Holyfield in Georgia court earlier this year.
Around July 2012, Holyfield contacted the company about moving items from his home to a storage unit located in Doraville, Georgia.
Per their deal, they moved a substantial volume of personal property to the warehouse. Holyfield was to pay $1,520 a month for storage of his items. From July 2012 until November 2014, they say he paid the
agreed upon price.
Then in November 2014, they moved a portion items from the warehouse to his home for the cost of $3,345. However, he ceased making payments for the storage the same month & refused to pay the $3,345. The unpaid balance from December 2014 until currently comes out to $47,210 + the $3,345 unpaid moving fee for a grand total of $50,465.
On June 15th, Holyfield went to court, countersuing the company for refusing to return his property to
him. He denies the claim he agreed to pay $1,520 a month to store his property. Holyfield accuses the company of being the one in breach of their deal, NOT him.
Holyfield says APM has possession of his personal property and they refuse to hand it over. Further, he alleges the company never provided him with billing. He accuses them of even losing his personal property with some damaged.
The heavyweight boxer is demanding unspecified damages + the return of his property immediately.
