  • Deshaun Watson reaches confidential settlements with 20 out of 24 women who accused him of sexual misconduct.
  • Ashley Solis, the first woman to publicly accuse Watson of misconduct during a massage therapy session, was one of the holdouts..
  • The settlements comes weeks after Watson said he was intent on settling the cases.

Deshaun Watson has reached confidential settlement agreements with 20 of 24 women who sued him and accused him of sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions.

“Today I announce that all cases against Deshaun Watson, with the exception of four, have settled,”“We are working through the paperwork related to those settlements. Once we have done so, those particular cases will be dismissed. The terms and amounts of the settlements are confidential. We won’t comment further on the settlements or those cases.”

Ashley Solis, the first massage therapist to publicly come forward to accuse Watson of misconduct, is one of the holdouts according to Buzbee.

“As stated, Ashley Solis is one of the heroes of this story. Her case has not settled and thus her story and that of the other three brave women will continue. I look forward to trying these cases in due course, consistent with other docket obligations and the court’s schedule.”

During his introductory press conference with the Browns just last month, Watson said that his intent was not to settle but was looking to clear his name.
