According to a report from the New York Times, New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of raping his former trainer in federal lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida.
The report from the Times says, "in three separate incidents, two in June 2017 and another in May 2018 — Brown sexually assaulted a woman whom he met while they were attending Central Michigan together and whom he later hired as a trainer."
In a statement from Darren Heitner that was posted on Twitter (he's the lawyer representing AB), “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.” You can read the full statement below.
