CLEVELAND– Johnny Manziel‘s dad said he’s worried if his son doesn’t receive help, he won’t make it to his next birthday.
In an interview Friday with Dallas Morning News, Paul Manziel said, “I truly believe if they can’t get him help, he won’t live to see his 24th birthday.”
Manziel’s father also told the newspaper that Johnny has refused twice this week to enter rehab.
This comes after more details were released Thursday about an incident involving Manziel and his girlfriend in Fort Worth, Texas. According to the police report, Manziel hit Colleen Crowley several times and he was acting like he was “on some kind of drugs.” Manziel told TMZ Sports that he did not hit her.
Also on Friday, Manziel‘s agent parted ways with the Cleveland Browns quarterback.
Erik Burkhardt released a statement on Friday that he “made the decision to terminate” their professional relationship after conversations with Manziel’s family and doctors.
“Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter, and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands,” Burkhardt said in the statement to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
