Mahomes’ Lawyer: “A Short Clip Of Any Video Does Not Provide Proper Context”
Mahomes’ lawyer provided KCTV5 with a statement back in March denying the claims against Jackson, claiming “a short clip of any video does not provide proper context.”
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” it read. “Every interaction between people needs to be placed in the proper context. Releasing a short clip of any video does not provide proper context. We have faith in the process and look forward to a swift resolution of the matter.”

Owner Says She Did Not Welcome Jackson’s Advances
Vaughn has said she believes Jackson was intoxicated but adds she claims she warned Mahomes about his unwanted advances.
Hours before the alleged forced kisses, one of Vaughn’s wait staff alleges Jackson shoved him out of the private room where he and his entourage were dining in. The employee alleges it happened after smelling marijuana smoke.
Jackson reportedly is a regular at the establishment and even knows the owner’s step-daughter, according to Vaughn.
