EDDIE’S BAD CHECK
WOTS… Comedian Eddie Griffin is NOT good for his money

According to KN sources… the funny man is being sued by a man that’s being sued by AmEx for $150,000

Word is… Eddie presented a bad $150,000 check to the “Jamaica 360 program” (a programwhich sends 100 African American college grads on a career building vacation to Jamaica)

The only thing is… according to the “accuser”… the money that was given to the program wasn’t Eddie’s to give away!

The accuser… “claims he was then duped into lending Griffin his credit card to cover a hotel bill while they were in Jamaica — but according to the suit, Griffin took the card and secretly made a $150,000 charge to the main developer of J-360. Two weeks later, Samir got a bill from American Express with the six-figure charge”
