Another day and yet another accuser has filed a lawsuit against Deshaun Watson.
On Monday, the 22nd sexual assault lawsuit was released against the Houston Texans quarterback. The latest plaintiff — a licensed esthetician — accuses Watson of assault and harassment, alleging that he inappropriately touched himself and her.
Like many of the other women, it alledges Watson found her on Instagram and asked for a massage. The woman said Watson refused to use a sheet and walked into the room with him being naked and lying face down waiting for his massage.
Watson told Plaintiff he did not want to use sheets, and then inquired as to whether Plaintiff had towels. Plaintiff explained she had large towels and medium size hand towels.
Curiously, Watson informed her the towels she had were unacceptable, and indicated that he would bring his own towel. Upon his arrival, Plaintiff left Deshaun Watson alone so he could change. When Plaintiff returned Watson was completely naked, laying face down on her massage table with only a wash cloth covering his butt.
Once she collected herself, Watson asked Plaintiff if she remembered the areas of concern, to which Plaintiff replied“no.” He told Plaintiff he wanted her to focus on his “lower abs, groin, and quads.” Plaintiff thus started at Watson’s calves and worked her way up. When Plaintiff reached Watson’s buttock area, he repeatedly asked her to apply more pressure.
Because of the strange behavior, Plaintiff became uncomfortable, as her thumbs were rubbing immediately adjacent to Watson’s anus, and he continued to ask for her to go deeper. At some point, Plaintiff told Defendant Watson she did not feel comfortable, and refused to go any closer to his anus.
Plaintiff instead asked Defendant Watson to flip over After Watson flipped over onto his back, Plaintiff again started working on his lower legs and worked her way up. When she arrived at his inner thigh, Watson asked for her to apply more pressure. With her applying more pressure the position of her hands would have her rubbing against his scrotum and penis. Plaintiff again did not feel comfortable, and she expressed this to Defendant Watson and told him she was going to move on to his lower abs.
In response he grabbed Plaintiff’s butt and attempted to start flirting. Watson’s penis was erect at this point and was completely exposed. Watson moved his penis onto Plaintiff’s hand in an attempt to get her to touch it. Plaintiff asked increduously what was he thinking and he replied “you can sit on it.”
Plaintiff told him that was not professional and that is not how she got down.” At that point, Plaintiff ended the massage. Plaintiff told Watson she would give him a moment to gather himself. Plaintiff walked out allowing him time to change; five minutes later he walked out of the room.
The massage escalated with Watson attempting to bring the woman’s hands closer to his penis. She would soon end the massage, but not before he handed her a non-disclosure agreement to sign.
“In order for him to pay her, she had to sign,” court papers read. She signed the document and Watson paid her $250 through CashApp.
Plaintiff confided in her business partner immediately after the session about what had taken place with Watson as she was extremely disturbed.
Defendant Watson reached out to plaintiff some weeks after the session to say hello. Plaintiff was confused by this message. Plaintiff refused to work with Watson ever again.
