Deshaun Watson admitted he cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Jilly Anais, with 3 massage therapists.

Earlier this year, a grand jury declined to indict the Cleveland Browns quarterback on sexual misconduct and harassment charges.

Watson, 26, sat for depositions in civil lawsuits filed by 22 massage therapists who say he sexually harassed them after sessions.

He admitted that he made massage therapist Ashley Solis cry when he exposed himself during a massage session.

Watson has insisted that he had no intentions to have inappropriate sexual contact with the plaintiffs. He claimed any illicit contact was initiated by the women.

On HBO's Real Sports, Soledad O'Brien asked one of Watson's lawyers whether he had illicit intentions when he went in for those massages.

"Well, in every massage, I will tell you he did go, intending just for a professional massage," said attorney Leah Graham. "And only those three instances where sexual conduct occurred– consensual sexual activity – it occurred after the massage session had ended. And Mr. Watson has testified and is insistent that that sexual activity was initiated by the plaintiff in every single instance."

O'Brien also spoke with two of Watson's victims who insist they did not initiate sexual contact with him.

The women, Ashley Solis and Kyla Hayes, are two of the 22 plaintiffs who have pending litigation against Watson.

The women are also cooperating with the NFL's ongoing internal review of the allegations.

Ohio State University has banned a female massage therapist after she reportedly had sex with multiple Ohio State Buckeyes football players.

The university banned the massage therapist whose license was revoked by the state following an investigation, including interviews with individual players.

Ohio State released the following statement on Thursday, alleging the massage therapist targeted football players in a scheme to engage in sexual acts with them.

"In March 2021, the university became aware that the State Medical Board of Ohio investigated an independent massage therapist who engaged in inappropriate and exploitative behavior targeting members of the Ohio State football team. The university has confirmed that the Medical Board has taken action, and this individual has had her license permanently revoked...

"Her actions were part of a scheme to exploit football student-athletes and were in violation of her state license. In addition, Ohio State does not believe the massage therapist's actions trigger NCAA rules or form the basis for NCAA violations. While no self-reporting is required, Ohio State proactively shared the exploitative behavior with the NCAA, and a report has been made to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office." Read more...
