Well, when it rains, it pours. Deshaun Watson stole all the headlines around the NFL a couple of weeks ago for his demand to leave the Houston Texans. Now, he's making all tabloids for the worst reasons.
Houston-based attorney Tony Buzbee has already filed three separate lawsuits against him due to sexual misconduct and claims that there are already twelve women ready to proceed the same way.
Watson, naturally, has denied all allegations and claimed that the lawyer and the women are just looking for publicity. However, some recent evidence doesn't make him look that innocent after all.
Deshaun Watson Categorically Denied All Allegations
“As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff’s lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. The plaintiff’s lawyer claims that this isn’t about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn’t about money for me — it’s about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that," Watson said on Twitter.
Leaked Texts Show Watson Apologizing To The Woman Who Accused Him
Despite Watson's denial, some leaked texts now show that Watson, indeed, apologized to the masseuse that filed the first lawsuit. Apparently, he made her feel uncomfortable and reached out to her to clear the air:
"Sorry about you feeling uncomfortable. Never were the intentions. Let me know if you want to work in the future. My apologies," read the screenshot.
TMZ added that there are more leaked texts as evidence of Watson's misconduct, so this story isn't likely to go away any time soon. Hopefully, it'll all be cleared rather sooner than later. If he's guilty, he should pay. If not, just let the man work.
