NFL star Antonio Brown has been accused of rape by his former trainer, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida.
Brown's former trainer, Britney Taylor, is alleging that the newly signed New England Patriots receiver sexually assaulted her on two separate occasions in 2017 and raped her in 2018.
On one occasion, Taylor says the football player forcibly kissed her and exposed himself to her without her consent. Another time, she says he was masturbating behind her and before she realized what was happening, he ejaculated on her back. The final incident occurred in Miami, where she says he "forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress, and forcibly raped her."
A lawyer for the star says the pair had a "consensual personal relationship. Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual."
"We are aware of the civil lawsuit that was filed earlier today against Antonio Brown, as well as the response by Antonio's representatives," the Patriots said in a statement on Tuesday night per ESPN.
"We take these allegations very seriously. Under no circumstances does this organization condone sexual violence or assault. The league has informed us that they will be investigating. We will have no further comment while that investigation takes place."
