A 14th lawsuit alleging sexual assault and inappropriate conduct was filed against Deshaun Watson by a woman who referred to him as “serial predator.”
The traveling massage therapist alleges that when she arrived at the address Watson gave her, he led her to a room and “locked the doors behind him.”
That forced the Plaintiff to take out her mace, to which Watson noticed it, but only laughed at the fact of her grabbing it.

Defendant Watson and Plaintiff first made contact on Instagram via direct message, wherein he expressed his interest in her services in July 2020 Plaintiff routinely provides massages at people’s homes, hotels and offices as she is a traveling massage therapist.
Plaintiff had never had any type of contact with Defendant Watson prior to this message. Plaintiff routinely provides massage therapy to athletes from professional football teams and other high-profile athletes. Plaintiff expected the massage with Watson to be professional just as it had been with her other high-profile clients.
Plaintiff was excited and encouraged that a professional football player would want to use her services again. Prior to the massage, Watson sent a message to Plaintiff to say that they could get on the phone and talk about importance.”
He said he was flying from Georgia to Texas to California, and told her his back was “killing him.” Plaintiff said she could stretch him. A massage was scheduled to take place in Beverly Hills, California on July 15, 2020. Plaintiff texted Watson at his request and he provided her with an address to a house.
When Plaintiff arrived to the house, Watson came out and gave her a guest pass to park. The house had a big living room, but Watson led Plaintiff to a room where Watson shut the doors and locked the doors behind him. At this point, Plaintiff got out her mace Watson saw the mace and chuckled but did not say anything.
Watson said he did not want to be covered with a top sheet because he claimed that he gets “hot” easily. Plaintiff said that was okay but she said that Watson still had to use a towel. Watson got a towel, and Plaintiff went to the restroom to wash her hands. When she came back into the room, Watson was a completely different person. Watson started to aggressively dictate the massage.
He asked her to massage his “glutes” and he pointed to his butt hole. Plaintiff said firmly “no.”
At some point during the massage, Watson flipped over onto his back and Plaintiff could see he had an erection, The towel was still covering his penis but Watson eventually removed the towel to where he was completely naked and exposed himself to Plaintiff.
Plaintiff was terrified, but did not want to make Watson upset. Watson then asked Plaintiff if she could massage his lower abdominals. At this point, Watson grabbed Plaintiff’s hands and moved his penis and genitals towards her hand and forced Plaintiff’s hand onto his penis, to get her to pleasure him.
He also kept directing her to his butt hole. After the massage ended, Watson was still naked in front of her while on the phone. Watson said “I will not have you sign a NDA but don’t ever talk about this.” Plaintiff was completely numb with fear at this point as she was leaving she felt violated, ashamed, and disgusted.
She felt scared to be trapped in a room with a huge, muscular person such as Watson.
Months after the fact, Watson would actually reach out to her yet again in December 2020.
Watson reached out to Plaintiff on Instagram, asking if she was a “travel therapist in Chicago,” acting as if nothing had happened. Plaintiff did not respond to his message.
Although Plaintiff seeks minimal compensatory damages, it is to be noted that Plaintiff has suffered mental anguish as a result of Watson’s behavior. Plaintiff has not been able to move on from these experiences. She cannot think about the incident without crying and shaking She thinks about it all the time and continues to feel degraded.
Watson has denied wrongdoing, and his attorney Rusty Hardin said Friday that the allegations against the quarterback are “meritless.”
“I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect,” Watson said in a statement he posted on Twitter on March 16.
