Von Miller is being sued for allegedly distributing a sexually explicit photograph of a woman he used to date.
Per lawsuit documents obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman said the Buffalo Bills linebacker sent the photo to “two well-known celebrities” in 2020 in an act of “jealousy, anger, and rage.” According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, a woman going by “Jane Doe” is suing the legendary football player for “intrusion of private affairs, and “intentional infliction of emotional distress” and violating the law by, “intentionally distributes by any means a photograph, film, videotape, recording, or any other reproduction of another, without the other’s consent.”
The woman said Miller sent the texts on May 7, 2020, with the message on one reading, “This the bitch you want? You can have her dawg.”
According to the woman, the second message read, “This the bitch you want?”
Her attorney said celebrities and professional athletes “think laws do not apply because of fame, money, and power.”
“However, professional athletes are not exempt from the law, and Miler’s vindictive, manipulative and unlawful actions must not be overlooked,” the lawsuit continued.
As for his career, Miller is getting set for his 11th season in the NFL. He spent the 2021 season with the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams, helping the latter win Super Bowl 55.
The Bills signed Miller to a six-year, $120 million contract in March.
The woman is seeking monetary damages and has asked the court to order Miller to stop sharing the alleged photos.
