It seems like the Cleveland Browns’ QB, Deshaun Watson, is aiming for a half-century in procuring civil lawsuits. Already having 24 lawsuits in his name, Deshaun obtained another one when a massage therapist filed a new civil lawsuit accusing him of sexual misconduct.
The unnamed most recent accuser claimed that Watson forced her to do sexual act during a private massage back in December of 2020. Anissah Nguyen, the accuser’s lawyer, mentioned regarding the victim’s degraded mental health and expressed that she “has been struggling with everything. It’s taken her some time to come forward.”
“She’s doing it for herself and other women who have been victimized by Deshaun Watson,” her lawyer continued. The anonymous accuser hopes for a “just and expeditious” penance.
There is no connection between this most recent case and the previous 24 lawsuits that had been filed against Watson in the last two years, all of which have been settled except for one. Lawyer Tony Buzbee initiated those legal actions, whereas two distinct attorneys have filed this current one.
Rusty Hardin, who represents Watson, testified that his client was not aware of the new complaint. The QB with flawed character has fabricated his gentleness in mid August stating, “I’m truly sorry to all the women that I’ve impacted.”
However, in the past, he made numerous attempts to disregard all the alleged misconducts, even though his fling for massage therapists is not a secret to the world. Among all the filings, 18 are from massage therapists! The player even had dared to utter “no regrets” publicly in a previous interview.
Two grand juries decided not to press criminal charges against the Pro Bowler leading him toward a massive opportunity of 5-year contract worth $230 million with the Browns.
After that, Watson settled most of the claims against him, but the NFL nevertheless punished him by benching him for 11 initial games of the 2022 season. He has been allowed back into the team’s facilities for meetings, but he will not be able to train with the Browns until November 14.
Even after Watson’s portrayal of nasty off-field behavior, he is commonly accepted as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Watson completed 67.8 percent of his passes and scored 104 touchdowns in 54 career games so far in his career.
