New York Mets star Noah Syndergaard lashed out on Twitter Saturday a few feud with the landlord of his $27,000-a-month Manhattan penthouse.
“I fairly, and in good faith, offered to pay 2 months rent (over 50K) to a landlord for a place I was never going to step foot in due to a global pandemic that took a severe toll on the residents of NYC,” Syndergaard tweeted.
“The landlord tries to extort me for 250K while leaking this story to the media, and I’m the bad guy? Yeah, ok. See you in court pal.”
The landlord, 600 Road LLC, claimed the righty pitcher signed an eight-month lease in February for the two,700-square-foot apartment with three bedrooms and three terraces, the New York Publish reported. Syndergaard was being sued by the landlord, which didn’t return Fox Information’ requests for remark, to pay the total lease time period of $250,000.

He “decided not to take possession of the leased premises, Syndergaard repudiated and abandoned his obligations under the lease, refusing to take possession of the leased premises, and declining to make any of the required payments.”
The landlord notified Syndergaard on April 17 of the defaulted lease; Syndergaard and his authorized staff advised the landlord on April 30 that he “has no intention of taking possession of that subject premises and the landlord is hereby free to re-rent it as he sees fit,” in keeping with the swimsuit.
