It’s been quite the eventful few weeks for Antonio Brown.
Just last week Brown released an insane hype video on social media that eventually led to his release from the Oakland Raiders.
Brown then signed with the Patriots but his drama took a serious turn when he was accused of raping his former trainer Britney Taylor.
In the lawsuit, a copy of which was reviewed by ESPN, Antonio Brown’s former trainer, Britney Taylor, accuses the newly signed New England Patriots receiver of sexually assaulting her on three separate occasions in 2017 and 2018.
The first alleged incident was in June 2017; Taylor says Brown exposed himself and kissed her without consent at one of his Pittsburgh-area homes. A month later, while at Brown’s home in his native Miami, Brown masturbated near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back, then later bragged about it in a series of text messages, Taylor alleges in the lawsuit. Taylor also says that in May 2018, after a night out at a Miami-area club, she went back to Brown’s home in Miami to use the bathroom and have some food, and Brown “forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress and forcibly raped her.”
While Brown is aggressively fighting the lawsuit he has mostly stayed quiet while the process plays out. Today, AB went on Instagram live from Tom Brady’s TB12 facility and made his first public comments after the accusations were reported. Brown believes that the devil is trying to bring him down and he also says he wants to make a “football USA” team so the world can love football players.
Brown practiced with the Patriots this afternoon but it’s still unclear if he will play against the Dolphins this week.
