Kerri Walsh Jennings Sues AVP Beach Volleyball Tour
Seven months later, the contentious relationship between the five-time Olympian and the AVP continues, with Law360.com reporting that she filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the tour on April 13, 2017.
The suit claims that the AVP owes Walsh Jennings $150,000 from a sponsorship deal that was a part of a three-year contract she signed with the AVP in 2013.
Adding to the drama, Walsh Jennings has not yet signed a player contract for the 2017 AVP season, which kicks off in early May.
"We're in contract negotiations and we're pretty far off right now," Walsh Jennings told the Associated Press.
Her absence would be a harsh blow for the AVP, which was reestablished by current owner Donald Sun in 2012 after the tour went bankrupt in 2010.
