WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Dallas Cowboys are suing a prominent DC financial adviser for not paying her bills, according to legal documents.
According to court documents, Dawn Bennett, CEO of Bennett Group Financial, is delinquent on payment of a luxury suite and owes nearly a million dollars for non-payment in 2013 and 2014.
The Cowboys are calling for $7.3 million in damages, for the remainder of her 20-year lease agreement.
WUSA9 spoke with Bennett Thursday evening after the story about her aired. Bennet told WUSA9 that the story "came out of the blue", the suit is a mistake and that the Cowboys are going to retract the lawsuit.
WUSA9 is waiting for the Cowboys to verify that information.
Bennett paid for the first five years but the payments started dropping off. She paid $200 thousand in 2013 and nothing for 2014, according to the documents.
