Antonio Brown is being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted and raped her during three separate encounters.
The woman identifies herself as Britney Taylor and says she was hired by Brown as a personal trainer.
Taylor claims the first incident happened in June 2017 during a training session when "Brown exposed himself and kissed [her] without her consent."
Taylor then describes a second alleged incident ... "Later that month, Brown, while positioned behind her, began masturbating near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back."
Taylor claims Brown begged her to continue training him and eventually agreed after initial hesitation.
The woman claims nearly a year later "Brown cornered [her] forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress, and forcibly raped her."
Taylor met Brown while they were both students at Central Michigan.
Brown's legal representation released the following statement:
"Mr. Brown denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit. He will pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name, but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations. Mr. Brown was approached by his accuser in 2017, shortly after Mr. Brown signed a contract making him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL. At that time, Mr. Brown was asked to invest $1.6 million dollars in the accuser’s business project. Mr. Brown was not informed by his accuser that she had just been levied with a $30,000 IRS tax lien or that $300,000 of the $1.6 million so called “investment” was to be used to purchase property already owned by the accuser and her mother. When Mr. Brown refused to make the $1.6 million “investment,” the accuser supposedly cut off communications with Mr. Brown. However, in 2018, the accuser resurfaced and offered to travel to Pennsylvania and South Florida to train Mr. Brown for the upcoming season."
Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders last week and subsequently signed with the New England Patriots.
