Patriots star Antonio Brown accused of raping and sexually assaulting a personal trainer

NFL Star Antonio Brown is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her three times on three separate occasions, a lawsuit filed Tuesday confirms.

The woman, who identifies herself as Britney Taylor, says she was hired by Brown as a personal trainer in 2017, alleging the first rape to have taken place in during a training session in June that year. 

Taylor, a gymnast who first met Brown while they were studying at Central Michigan University together, says he ‘exposed himself and kissed [her] without consent,’ according to documents obtained by DailyMail.com.

She also described a second alleged incident ‘later that same month’, in which Brown is said to have stood behind her with she was watching television, masturbated without her knowledge and then ‘ejaculated on her back’.

Filed in federal court in Florida, the lawsuit claims Brown bragged to Taylor about carrying out the purported assault in ‘profane and angry text messages’. 

As a result, Taylor, 28, ended her working relationship with Brown. However, several months later, when the Patriot’s wide receiver contacted her and ‘begged for forgiveness’, she agreed to relent, ‘swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances’. 

But on May 20, 2018, Taylor says Brown assaulted her once more, this time forcing her only a bed, forcing her face into a mattress and ‘forcibly’ raping her. 

Taylor said she tried to escape Brown’s hold, repeatedly screaming ‘no and stop’ at him, but the desperate cries allegedly fell on deaf ears.

According to the documents, Brown then refused to get off of her and then penetrated her.

‘As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision,’ Taylor said in a statement released by her lawyer. ‘I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault.’

Taylor added that she’s willing to cooperate with the NFL in any subsequent investigation. It’s not yet clear whether she’s reported her accusations to the police.

Brown’s agent Darren Heitner tweeted a statement out on behalf of Brown on Tuesday evening, saying that his client ‘denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit’.

Heitner said Brown was approached by his accuser in 2017, shortly after he signed a new contract to make him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

‘At that time, Mr. Brown was asked to invest $1.6 million dollars in the accusers business project,’ the agent’s statement claimed. 

‘Mr. Brown was not informed by his accuser that she had just been levied with a $30,000 IRS tax lien or that $300,000 of the $1.6 million so-called “investment” was to be used to purchase a property already owned by the accuser and her mother.’

Heitner says Brown refused to invest in the scheme and the accuser then cut all communications with him.

However, she then resurfaced in 2018 and offered to travel to Pennsylvania to South Florida to train Brown for the up-coming season.   

‘Thereafter, the accuser engaged Mr. Brown in a consensual personal relationship. Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual,’ the agent retorted.

Heitner goes on the claim that, even after Taylor’s purported May 2018 rape claim, she continued to travel to Brown’s residences on multiple occasions in Florida and Tennessee.

He says she continued communications with Brown throughout 2018, and says she even asked him for tickers to a Pittsburgh Steelers football game in the winter the same year.

‘Mr. Brown’s accuser has continually posted photographs of Mr. Brown on her social media in an effort to financially benefit from his celebrity,’ Heitner blasted, adding that Brown ‘refuses to be the victim of what he believes to be a money grab.’
