After months of mostly amusing distractions, Antonio Brown could be in some serious trouble outside the field.

According to a report from the New York times Brown is being sued by former trainer Britney Taylor, whom he met back in college at Michigan State, over three different incidents of sexual assault and rape.

Taylor reveals that she was first sexually assaulted by Brown back in 2017 during a training session.

According to the lawsuit, Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017. First, he exposed himself and kissed her without her permission, the lawsuit says

Taylor then describes another disturbing incident where Brown began masturbating behind her and ejaculated on her back.

Later that month, the lawsuit says, while she was watching a television program at his home, Brown started masturbating behind her and ejaculated on her back. Brown bragged about the incident in profane text messages that are copied in the lawsuit.

Here are the alleged text messages Taylor claims Brown sent her after the fact.

She went on to say that she continued her professional relationship with Brown after he apologized for the incidents but that he once again sexually assaulted her when he “forcibly raped” her in 2018.

Taylor ended her working relationship with Brown, the lawsuit says, but several months later, when he contacted her to apologize, she relented. She was, according to the lawsuit, “swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances.”

Then, the lawsuit says, on May 20, 2018, Brown forced her onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress and “forcibly” raped her. She tried to resist him, screaming and repeatedly shouting “no” and “stop,” the lawsuit says, but Brown refused and penetrated her.

In a statement released to the press, Taylor talks about why she decided to come forward now.

“As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision,” Taylor said in a statement released by her lawyer. “I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault.”

It’s still unclear whether Taylor went to the police but she does say she will cooperate with an NFL investigation.

Brown’s lawyers released a statement claiming Taylor is trying to extort Brown for $1.6 million by falsely accusing him of rape.

Neither the NFL or the New England Patriots have responded to the allegations
