Antonio Brown is accused of sending intimidating text messages to a woman who accused him of an unwanted sexual advance in a Sports Illustrated story.
Robert Klemko, SI football writer, wrote on Twitter: “Antonio Brown sent our source from Monday’s story menacing group text messages, including a picture of her children with instructions for his associates to investigate her. Her lawyer wrote the NFL calling for the intimidation to stop.” Klemko included a screenshot of the alleged Brown texts to the woman, who has asked to remain anonymous. You can see them later in this article.
The New England Patriots’ wide receiver is currently under investigation by the NFL over accusations another woman, Britney Taylor, his former trainer, made in a lawsuit. Taylor accused him of raping her; Brown adamantly denies the accusations. In the case of the anonymous woman, she told SI in a previous story that Brown “had hired her two years ago to paint a mural of him in his home but ‘ghosted’ her after she ignored his advances,” the sports site reported.
