A rep for Jay Ajayi tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is bogus … adamantly denying Jay ever physically pushed the owner of the home. They also deny Jay damaged the property in any way … or hosted any parties.

Instead they claim the owner tried to get Jay and his friend to pay him cash directly — bypassing the Airbnb website — so they say they left the house several days early … but still paid the full rate.

NFL star Jay Ajayi shoved the owner of a fancy L.A. mansion who charged the Eagles running back $25k in damages for trashing the place … this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The 24-year-old is being sued by the owner of a swanky 6,000 square foot pad located above the famous Sunset Strip … where the RB and a friend stayed back in February for 5 days after Ajayi won the Super Bowl. 

According to the suit, Ajayi and his buddy threw at least 3 parties at the house despite the fact they were specifically told — NO PARTIES! 

In fact, the owner claims he charged a $5,000 fee for each party at the home … which Ajayi never paid.

Additionally, the owner claims Ajayi broke a table, scratched some floors and violated the no smoking rule:
