Steelers’ Antonio Brown wants custody of his daughter after domestic incident

Antonio Brown, Steelers

Per reports stemming from ESPN and TMZ, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver has Antonio Brown reportedly has filed for custody of his daughter. This comes from the alleged domestic dispute involving Brown in Florida from just a few weeks ago.

Brown’s family attorney, Jaclyn Soroka, released an official statement that outlined Browns’ request for custody, per ESPN. TMZ reported this past week that police in Hollywood, Fla. had been involved with a case of “domestic dispute” involving a Jane Doe and Brown. There were no charges filed, and Brown released a statement calling the allegations “false and baseless.”

The incident involved the mother of Brown’s child. She was allegedly demanding money from him. Brown said in his statement that she “had no lawful basis to be at or to remain on his property.” The statement continued to say:
“Unfortunately, there have been misleading and inaccurate headlines of a ‘domestic dispute’ insinuating that Antonio Brown was responsible for wrongdoing in relation to the baseless, false police report made, which was immediately recanted… Given the egregiousness of the Mother’s recent actions, Mr. Brown has taken legal action this week to ensure that his daughter is protected by majority timesharing and decision-making authority. Mr. Brown loves his daughter and the recent unwarranted press in connection with the Mother’s appalling actions is a travesty for his daughter, who remains will always be his first and foremost priority.”
Brown is a nine-year-veteran who’s played his entire career with the Steelers. He’s had six straight years of over 1,000 receiving yards and over 100 receptions total.  This past season Brown had 104 receptions and 1,297 reception yards while corralling in a league-leading 15 touchdowns.
