The Houston lawyer representing Deshaun Watson‘s accusers has revealed alleged texts from the star quarterback apologizing to a masseuse for making her uncomfortable.
The 25-year-old is under fire for allegedly sexually assaulting massage therapists in the Houston area.
One of the texts shows Watson attempting to schedule an appointment with a masseuse before asking if she’s “comfortable with the glute area.” In another text exchange from March 30, 2020, Watson allegedly apologizes to an accuser.
“Sorry about you feeling uncomfortable,” Watson allegedly wrote. “Never were the intentions. Lmk (let me know) if you want to work in the future. My apologies.”
After posting the messages on social media, the attorney, Tony Buzbee, said more texts will be posted in addition to copies of the lawsuits.
Watson vigorously denied the allegations on Twitter, saying that he rejected “a baseless six-figure settlement demand” and that this is “about clearing my name.”
“I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect,” Watson said in his statement.
Buzbee announced the first lawsuit on Tuesday. Four more lawsuits have been filed against Watson, bringing the total of lawsuits to seven.
Buzbee also said there are now a total of nine women who plan on suing Watson.
