Brett Favre is being sued for allegedly helping to conspire with other business partners to fraudulently induce an investor to put $16 million into a sports social media network that never took off.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Callais Capital Management claims Favre and the executives of Sqor Sports made a series of negligent and fraudulent misrepresentations to induce CCM to invest.

The documents describe Sqor as a social network that was planned as a way to connect fans to their favorite professional athletes. The athletes would have their other social media account posts compiled onto their Sqor profile.

Further, CCM claims that Sqor “materially misrepresented” they had over 325 million fans (users) and their social reach was over 350 million. They even claimed the Sqor “went so far as to misrepresent” their social media platform’s user growth metrics exceeded that of Twitter and LinkedIn.

There’s just no way Favre remembers becoming the face of Sqor. His agent Bus Cook called him on the phone Sunday to break the bad news and there’s just no way Brett had even heard of Sqor with all the CTE in his brain. From what I gather the people over at Sqor told investors that they had hundreds of millions of impressions and had superstar athletes using it to increase the popularity

Sqor even claimed to CCM other athletes — like Conor McGregorRob GronkowskiOdell Beckham Jr.Allen Iverson and others — were using the network and were bringing in millions of impressions. The suit says none of the athletes were actually using Sqor and the millions in impressions was a lie.

That sounds like something you should fact check if you’re investing millions of dollars. Pretty cut and dry you can find out if these guys are using the app or not. Basically they saw Brett Favre’s face and trusted that the company was legit, when in fact he probably had no idea what was going on. You think BRETT FAVRE knows a goddamn thing about technology? You think old #4 is the guy you should trust with the pulse of social media? The guy famous for wearing Wrangler jeans and riding a tractor in his spare time is all of a sudden in the social media game trying to rival Twitter? I mean these investors have to be the dumbest people of all time to go through with this. They don’t deserve to get their money back.

Here’s an interview about Sqor with Brett from a couple years ago.
