“In view of my long and successful basketball career, I believe I have both skill and passion. [sic] Project, Challenge or the company I am a part of, ”he wrote exclusively on Facebook.
According to judgments contacted by our Bureau of Investigation, Mendez has already been ordered to pay more than $ 130,000 to two women involved in personal relationships.
In 2012, Melanie Lachine was ordered to pay $ 28,869.
According to his allegations, he transferred the sums to Mendez while in the Dominican Republic.
She allegedly paid him cell phone bills, rented a vehicle at his expense and paid hotel and flight bills.
Quebec court judge Chantal Sirois said in a ruling that Lachine had clearly proved his allegations.
“This is not the first time the defendant has borrowed money from a woman and refused or refused to repay her,” she said.
Another woman, Mary Tie, alleged in another lawsuit that Mendez actually maintained a luxurious lifestyle.
He spends more to travel and pay than to repay his car.

The latter claimed nearly $ 106,000 from him, with a loan receipt in support. According to her claims, she was engaged in a personal relationship with Mendez. In 2011, the default verdict was in favor of the prosecutor.
