Deshaun Watson could be forced to defend himself against six lawsuits.
Less than 24 hours after a Texas woman filed a sexual harassment and assault civil lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, we know have two more women claiming the same thing.
Hours later, Houston attorney Tony Buzbee took to Instagram to announce a 3rd lawsuit has been filed, and that 3 more are coming after it.
Here’s what he wrote on his Instagram:
“Third lawsuit of now six to be filed, against Deshaun Watson, alleging assault. This one is the most egregious, to date.
Again, I won’t share details here, but we have open courts in our Texas Constitution, meaning all lawsuits are public record. Our staff has received numerous calls.
We screen each one, and I personally talk with and screen any individual on whose behalf we file. I’ve been doing this a long time. I don’t need “fame,” and, to be quite honest, and I say this as modestly as I can, if I never made another penny I would be quite okay.”
The first two women were both massage therapists and both suits allege similar behavior by Watson, with each alleged victim claiming that the quarterback arranged a massage by initially contacting them through his Instagram account.
