The attorney of Deshaun Watson has released a statement denying the allegations against his client.

“We and Mr. Watson take allegations of sexual misconduct against women very seriously, as we all should,” Rusty Hardin said

“We have waited to respond to the numerous allegations made by [the attorney for the 22 women, Tony Buzbee] and his clients until we could responsibly investigate. In the few days since his accusers’ names have been revealed, as was required by Texas law, we are discovering an avalanche of false accusations. Only two of these 22 lawsuits allege forced sexual activity, which Mr. Watson vehemently denies. … I hope everyone will take a fair and measured look at these accusations as we go forward in these cases. We certainly welcome anyone with relevant information to contact us.”

Houston attorney Tony Buzbee has announced that he has filed several lawsuits against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. That brings the total lawsuits against the athlete to 22. All the women have accused Watson of sexualizing his massage sessions with them.
