New documents from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, say that Sears asked Mathieu to pay him $1.5 million back in April and eventually asked for $5 million.
Sears, according to an affidavit reviewed by WDSU, is accused of calling and texting Mathieu with threats to leak allegations of sexual misconduct.
During the call, Sears allegedly told Mathieu, who is referred to as TM in court documents, that he needed $1.5 million in his account by that Friday.
Geourvon Keinell Sears, 20, is described in the criminal complaint as "a family member and heretofore a close associate of Victim #1".
"He later texted Matihieu with a demand of "$5 million by Friday, I'm done talking, emailing TMZ now", according to records. Mathieu refused and blocked Sears from being able to contact him by phone. He also provided his bank account information so Mathieu, or his associates, could deposit the money, according to court documents.

Sears has been released on $25,000 bond, with the next court date set for June 21.
