New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is again in the headlines, as a second woman has come forward accusing the superstar wideout of sexual misconduct, according to Sports Illustrated’s Robert Klemko.
Brown has been the topic of numerous headlines in 2019, all generating bad press for the generational wideout, who has forced his way from the Pittsburgh Steelers, to the Oakland Raiders, and now to the New England Patriots over the course of the past several months.
Per the Sports Illustrated report: “In a half-dozen lawsuits, he is accused of refusal to pay wages to former assistants and part-time employees. Court documents and interviews also suggest a pattern of disturbing, sometimes bizarre behavior—including, SI has learned, a second woman’s allegations of sexual misconduct by Brown.”
The report goes on the say that Brown allegedly agreed to buy a portrait of himself at a Pittsburgh art auction back in 2017, and liked the panting so much that he invited the artists to his house, hiring her to paint a mural of himself inside his home.
The artists alleges that Brown was constantly flirting, and at one time he stood behind her, almost completely naked, with only a towel covering his genitals.
Per the report: “He was flirty with me but I paid him no mind because I was there on business, plus, I had already seen him with multiple girls in the short time I was with him. I was about 40 percent done on the second day, and I’m on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt-ass naked, with a hand cloth covering his [penis] and starts having a conversation with me.”
The woman dismissed the sexual advance, and Brown would not be seen for weeks, and says that she never heard from Brown aftet that.
She states that while she was paid $2,000 for the work she had done on the mural, Brown never paid $700 for the original painting or the paintings that the artist had left in his house.
The report goes on to name a number of instances in which Brown has stiffed paying people for services that they have provided, and is now facing several lawsuits.
Additionally, Brown also had interactions with the police for at least three domestic disputes in the past four years.
Brown is being sued by his former trainer Britney Taylor, who recently came forward with allegations of sexual assaulting Taylor on three separate occasions, and rape.
Brown made his debut for the Patriots on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
