Roommates, Antonio Brown is reportedly being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted and raped her on three occasions. According to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, the woman claims to be AB’s former personal trainer.
Britney Taylor claims during the time she was employed by Antonio, she experienced various uncomfortable and inappropriate incidents. She says the first happened in June 2017 during a training session when AB exposed himself and “kissed her without consent”.
In the lawsuit, Britney describes a second alleged incident, where she says Antonio stood behind her and began masturbating without her knowledge. She says the encounter ended when he ejaculated on her back.
The lawsuit also says Antonio was proud of his acts. Britney claims Antonio bragged about the incident to her in “profane and angry text messages.” She also says he reached out to he months later begging for her forgiveness.
Despite being uncomfortable, Britney says she continued to train AB, and one year later, she was raped. The lawsuit says “Brown cornered [her] forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the matters, and forcibly rapes her.”
Britney is now seeking compensation for “physical injuries, pain and suffering, humiliation, embarrassment, stress and anxiety, loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, and emotional pain and suffering.”
She says she was so traumatized from the alleged incidents, she “had near-daily panic attacks, frequent suicidal ideation, and insomnia. She has also lost a remarkable amount of weight–30 pounds in one month–due to stress.
Britney released a statement through her attorney saying:
“As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision. I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the account of other survivors of sexual assault. Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape.”
AB’s attorney, Darren Heitner, has issues a statement denying all allegations, and claims Britney only filed he suit to punish him for refusing to invest $1.6 million into a business project back in 2017.
Antonio says there was a “consensual personal relationship” between the two, but denies every assaulting her.
The accusations come just after AB joined the New England Patriots.
