NFL’er Antonio Brown’s Accuser To Meet w/ NFL Investigators About Rape Allegations
The saga continues with troubled NFL star, Antonio Brown as he was recently accused of raping his former trainer in a new civil lawsuit. Over the weekend (Sept 15th), new reports state that Brown’s accuser, Britney Taylor, is slated to meet with league investigators on Monday (Sept. 16th). With Brown currently playing on the New England Patriots roster for week 3, the NFL is looking to close the investigation as quickly as possible.
“The hope from the league is to ramp up the investigation as quickly as possible, given the time element with games happening each week.”
As more details become public, the Patriots and NFL were reportedly blind-sided by the accusations against Brown last week. In addition, Patriots owner, Robert Kraft would have never signed the receiver if the team had knowledge of Taylor’s claims, according to reports.
“Had the team known, one person familiar with the situation said, owner Robert Kraft would not have signed off on the signing.”
Taylor, who is also a gymnastics coach, filed a lawsuit against Brown in the Southern District of Florida Tuesday (Sept. 10). Brown signed with the Patriots just a day before Taylor revealed the accusations against the wide receiver.
In the court documents, Taylor alleges that Brown assaulted her on three different occasions. Two allegedly occurred in June 2017. Taylor said that’s when Brown allegedly exposed himself and then kissed her without her permission.
The second incident allegedly happened when they were at Brown’s home. Taylor said he allegedly masturbated behind her and then ejaculated on her back. She also provided vulgar messages that Brown allegedly sent concerning the incident.
She resigned from being his trailer but then returned months later after he apologized. She said in the lawsuit she was,
“swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances.”
Brown was recently released by the Oakland Raiders at the beginning of September, where he reportedly called team general manager Mike Mayock a racial slur and allegedly threatened to punch him in the face during a heated conversation over being fined more than $50,000 for missing a team practice and activities.
