In news that would never have seen the light of day had disgraced NFL star Adam "Pacman" Jones not been named in a lawsuit, it appears the former Dallas Cowboy had been covering the attorney fees for the Black Mafia Family's third-in-command, Fleming "Ill" Daniels.

In fact, Pacman allegedly picked up the tab for legal representation in a whopping 18 cases involving his friends and family.

Daniels, who was a major player in BMF co-leader Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory's $270 million cocaine ring, is under indictment in Fulton County for the 2004 shooting death of Rashannibal "Prince" Drummond, who was gunned down in the parking lot of Midtown's now-defunct Velvet Room.

According to the AJC, the high-priced attorney who was representing Daniels on the murder charge, Manny Arora, is suing Pacman for failing to pay more than $10,000 in fees the lawyer had been promised in exchange for representing Pacman's friends and family, including Daniels.

Documents filed in Fulton County Superior Court show that Arora removed himself from Daniels' case last year and was replaced with a public defender.
