Months After Tom Brady’s Massive Billion Dollar Scandal, Rob Gronkowski in Risk to Face Huge Crypto Lawsuit

Published 01/18/2023, 4:30 PM EST

The crypto market has been on the up and down and down for the last couple of months. While the FTX scandal rocked the foundation of the digital exchange industry, people incurred huge losses on their initial investments. Even for a big-name star like Tom Brady, there were serious repercussions. After losing millions, the ambassador of the firm got wrapped up in the fight facing legal action for his involvement in the promotion of the platform. Now, it seems like Rob Gronkowski might also fall in the same ditch.

Brady was among the list of stars like Stephen Curry, Naomi Osaka, Larry David and many more, to get sued by FTX users. The QB was also the stake owner of the now-bankrupt, FTX. Now his favorite target on the field, Gronk, might follow in his footsteps by being involved in a crypto lawsuit as well.
