Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is back in the news this week but it doesn’t have anything to do football and his attempt to get traded away from Houston.
Watson is busy trying to clear his name after Tony Buzbee, the Houston-based attorney representing the alleged victim who is accusing Watson of sexual assault.
Pro Football Talk spoke with a source and got more information about the lawsuit:
“Per a source with knowledge of the allegations made in pre-litigation settlement efforts, the masseuse claims that Watson asked for her to massage “inappropriate areas.” She felt uncomfortable about the request, she asked him to leave, and he left.
As the source put it, Watson contends the allegations are false. Even if the allegations are taken as true, what’s the claim? In pre-suit communications, there has been no claim that Watson touched the masseuse or that he even made lewd comments. The allegation is that “some” of the places he wanted massaged made her uncomfortable.”
