Earl Thomas finds himself in the news again and not for his exploits on the football field, which he accomplished to such a high level. 

He is allegedly part of a bizarre scheme in which his identity was stolen and he was swindled our of $1.9 million.

As reported by the New York Post, his ex-wife's boyfriend is at the center of the scandal. 

Earl Thomas was married to Nina Thomas until 2020, when they divorced.

Using that connection, Thompson has been reportedly impersonating Earl Thomas and using it to his unscruplous advantage. 

He was arrested by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.
