Texans’ Deshaun Watson Faces Ten Lawsuits
Houston Texans superstar quarterback Deshaun Watson is facing even more lawsuits as three civil lawsuits have been filed against the franchise quarterback who is now facing ten suits in total, according to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop.
The lawsuits are based on allegations of inappropriate conduct and sexual assault and began last week when three massage therapists filed suits against Watson with one accuser alleging that Watson forced her to perform oral sex.
Watson has denied any wrongdoing, and the Texans are cooperating with the investigations.
“I’m extremely proud to represent Deshaun Watson and wholly stand behind him against what we believe are meritless allegations,” Watson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, recently stated. “However, we will wait to comment in detail until we’ve completed our review of the numerous, evolving allegations from Mr. Buzbee. We will respond next week and ask you to keep an open mind until we do so.”
