Antonio Brown’s accuser claims he sent her ‘intimidating’ text messages
The artist who has accused New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown of sexually harassing her in his Pittsburgh home in 2017 claims he sent her intimidating text messages after she went public with the allegation this week, Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated reports.
The woman also provided text messages screenshots of a group text message that appeared to come from the same phone number Brown had given her in 2017.
“Really sad you would make up bull s—t story to the world thought u had more integrity n respect for yourself must be really hard times for to make up some stuff for money super sad,” one of the texts reads.
The texter included photos of the artist and her kids and urged others on the group chat to “look up her background.” The texter also called her a “broke girl” and accused her of fabricating her account of the 2017 incident for money.
The accuser’s lawyer sent a letter to the NFL, calling the texts “intimidating and threatening to our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”
The woman went public with her claim against Brown in another story published by Sports Illustrated earlier this week. She claims that Brown came on to her after hiring her to paint a mural in his house, but she rejected his advance.
Brown, who has also been accused of sexual assault by his former trainer, made his debut for the Patriots in Week 2.
