On Tuesday night, New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown was named in a lawsuit alleging he sexually assaulted a former trainer.
According to a report from the New York Times, Brown’s former trainer accused the All-Pro wide receiver of sexual assault on multiple occasions.
The lawsuit also alleges Brown “forcibly” raped her in May 2018.
Britney Taylor, a former LSU gymnast, revealed disturbing details in her lawsuit against the seven-time Pro Bowler. According to Taylor, Brown masturbated near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back, then later bragged about it in a series of text messages.
Brown has since denied the allegations via a statement from his attorney.
Not only does he deny the accusations, NFL insider Josina Anderson reported he plans to countersue Taylor for civil extortion.
