Patriots WR Antonio Brown accused of sexual assault in lawsuit

Antonio Brown

New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of raping his former trainer in the Southern District of Florida, according to the New York Times’ Ben Shpigel. 

Britney Taylor is the woman accusing Brown, according to the lawsuit, which alleges three separate instances of sexual assault spanning from June of 2017 to May of 2018. A gymnast at Central Michigan, Brown met Taylor in college and hired her to be his trainer later, per Shpigel.

Said Shpigel:

“According to the lawsuit, Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017. First, he exposed himself and kissed her without her permission, the lawsuit says. Later that month, the lawsuit says, while she was watching a television program at his home, Brown started masturbating behind her and ejaculated on her back. Brown bragged about the incident in profane text messages that are copied in the lawsuit.

Taylor ended her working relationship with Brown, the lawsuit says, but several months later, when he contacted her to apologize, she relented. She was, according to the lawsuit, “swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances.”

Following the news, Brown’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, released a statement on Twitter stating that Brown denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit.

Per Heitner, the accusor “engaged Mr. Brown in a consensual personal relationship,” and any sexual interaction between the two “was entirely consensual.”

The Patriots recently signed Antonio Brown after he was released by the Oakland Raiders.
