Trevor Bauer is one of the most controversial figures in all Major League Baseball - or in all sports, actually. His constant antics on social media and his YouTube channel have stolen several headlines over the past couple of years.
Now, however, the reigning Cy Young Award winner made the tabloids for all the wrong reasons, as a woman whom he had sex with is accusing him of assaulting her and even filed a restraining order against him.
The Los Angeles Dodgers superstar denied all allegations and his attorney claimed to have proof of the consensual nature of their encounters. Even so, he'll face an investigation to determine the degree truth of this accusations.
Unnamed Woman Says Trevor Bauer Beat Her Up During Sex, Bauer's Camp Says It Was Consensual
(Transcript via TMZ)
"Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021. We have messages that show [the accuser] repeatedly asking for 'rough' sexual encounters involving requests to be 'choked out' and slapped in the face.
In both of their encounters, [the accuser] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the accuser] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter. In the days following their second and final encounter, [the accuser] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion. Mr. Bauer responded with concern and confusion, and [the accuser] was neither angry nor accusatory.
Mr. Bauer and [the accuser] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks. Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications. Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law."
Woman Files Restraining Order Against Trevor Bauer
"The order is a result of a recent assault that took place at the hands of Mr. Bauer where Ms. Hill suffered severe physical and emotional pain. Our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible. We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously," the woman's attorney told TMZ.
Noah Syndergaard Mocks Trevor Bauer
New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard has never been fond of Trevor Bauer and made the most of this opportunity to take another shot at him via Twitter, sharing the news and writing "Meanwhile….check out my book club!"
Whether MLB will take action against Bauer or not is yet to be seen. The league has taken a zero-tolerance policy with domestic abuses cases lately, not to mention they've had Bauer on their list for quite some time now.
