The prominent magazine published a complete look at the allegations surrounding the star running back.
The Ezekiel Elliott situation is getting ugly.
The Dallas Cowboys running back, suspended for the first six games of the NFL season following an investigation into domestic violence allegations, filed his appeal on Tuesday. The appeal is reportedly focusing on the credibility of his ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.
The NFL published this statement earlier today, claiming that lies about Thompson are being spread to help Elliott's cause.
You don't see the NFL make statements like that very often.
Earlier today, D Magazine published a deep dive into the allegations surrounding Elliott, saying "It's time to listen — really listen — to Tiffany Thompson's account."
The entire thing is worth a read.
Here's one passage:
Elliott’s father, Stacy Elliott, says in an affidavit that he rented the Short North Carriage House, a vacation rental on W. 3rd Avenue, for Elliott’s 21st birthday party. On Wednesday, July 20, Thompson says, Elliott told her to go by her apartment to get clothes to go out with him that evening. He then gave her the address of the Carriage House, and she met him there. They went out for dinner at Genji Japanese Steakhouse, and to the Fourth Street Bar and Grill afterward. Thompson says everything was fine until they get back to the Carriage House, at which point she brought up “stuff that’s happened,” meaning Elliott cheating with multiple girls, and Elliott “lost it.”
Thompson was sitting on the bed when, she says, Elliott picked her up by her armpits and threw her against the wall, then carried her into the hallway and threw her against a storage closet door. She fell and hit her head. She tried to get back up, but Elliott came and dragged her back into the bedroom, saying, “Don’t play with me.” When she again tried to get up to leave, Elliott asked, “Where’s your phone at? I’ll call Johnny for you.” Johnny is the guy Thompson was seeing after she broke up with Elliott. Elliott called Johnny — he had his number, too — but Johnny didn’t answer.
