It just continues to get worse and worse for Deshaun Watson.
The Houston attorney, who has filed three lawsuits on behalf of women alleging misconduct against the Texans QB, took to Instagram and stated he has been retained by a total of nine women, all with similar allegations.
“The Buzbee Law Firm has now been hired by nine women to bring cases against Deshaun Watson. The allegations are similar. We have filed three, and, as we complete our due diligence, will file the remaining ones in due course. We are talking to several others,” Buzbee’s post stated.
“No matter what you do in life, there will always be detractors. As my dad always said: “If you are right, go ahead!” And so we go,” the post concludes.
The social media post comes on the heels of a 3rd lawsuit from a massage therapist.
In the most recent suit, the massage therapist says Watson scheduled a session with her at an office building in Houston in December. he claims that Watson forced her to perform oral sex on him, and that she “blacked out for a few minutes from the fear.”
The woman has reportedly suffered from panic attacks, depression and anxiety, and has trouble sleeping since the incident.
Watson posted a message on his social media platforms on Tuesday, denying the wrongdoing.
“As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff’s lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. The plaintiff’s lawyer claims this isn’t about money, but before filing the suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn’t about money for me – it’s about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that.”
The second lawsuit says, “Watson’s behavior is part of a disturbing pattern of preying on vulnerable women.”
