Months after news initially broke that former Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown was being accused of sexual assault, the mercurial wideout has been officially served.

Back in September, Britney Taylor — a personal trainer that Brown knew from his days at Central Michigan University — filed a lawsuit that claimed Brown allegedly sexually assaulted her three separate times between 2017 and 2018.

According to ESPN NFL reporter Josina Anderson, Brown’s lawyer has officially “accepted service on behalf of Brown in Taylor’s civil complaint that alleges battery, sexual assault, and emotional distress.”

Taylor’s suit claims there were three separate instances of sexual assault.

The lawsuit states that the first alleged incident occurred in June 2017 when Brown, then with the Pittsburgh Steelers, allegedly “exposed himself and forcibly kissed her [Taylor] without permission.”

Taylor then says the second alleged incident occurred “weeks” later, when Brown allegedly snuck up behind Taylor “as she was watching a church service on her iPad at his home” and “masturbated and ejaculated on her back.” The suit also claims that the third instance of sexual assault allegedly happened on May 20, 2018, when Brown allegedly “forced her face into a mattress and raped her,” the suit states

Brown, who is still without a team and will likely never seen a professional NFL football field again, remains as active as ever on social media, as he regularly engages with fans on Twitter and releases self-produced hype videos.

At the time of this writing, Brown has yet to personally respond to being served.
