Things just got rather interesting.
Tony Buzbee revealed in a lengthy post on Tuesday that he was taking on a case of an alleged victim who was filing a sexual assault lawsuit against Deshaun Watson.
After Buzbee went public about the suit, it was discovered that he once claimed to be the neighbor of deceased Texans owner Bob McNair.
Buzbee went viral a few years ago when he paid for several billboards in the Houston area urging the Texans to draft Johnny Manziel. Luckily, the team did not listen.
This connection raises a ton of eyebrows as social media thinks this entire thing appears to be a smear campaign towards Watson for demanding a trade.
It may appear that way, but since released info by TMZ shows it is much deeper than that.
“In her lawsuit, the woman — who says she’s a licensed massage therapist who works out of her home — claims she was first contacted by Watson on Instagram in March 2020 seeking a massage.
From the moment he arrived at her home, the woman claims Watson made it clear he was looking for a sexual encounter … and when the time came for his massage, he stripped naked on the massage table with only a small towel covering his groin.
The woman claims Watson had brought the small towel himself.
During the massage, the woman claims Watson kept directing her toward her genitals — and said he wanted the focus of the massage to be on his “groin area.”
At one point, the woman claims a fully-erect Watson exposed his penis and “purposely touched [Jane Doe’s] hand with the tip.”
The woman claims she was “shocked and mortified” and promptly ended the massage and began to cry.
That’s when she claims Watson made a veiled threat — “I know you have a career and a reputation, and I know you would hate for someone to mess with yours, just like I don’t want anyone messing with mine.”
The masseuse claims she’s suffered mental anguish, panic attacks, depression and anxiety because of this incident.
She’s seeking unspecified damages.
