The offseason legal issues continue to pile up for Deshaun Watson.
On Monday, it was reported by KPRC2 that attorney Tony Buzbee is in the process of filing two more lawsuits against the new Cleveland Browns quarterback. thus bringing the total number to 26.
Much like the other lawsuits, the two new claimants state that Watson “had inappropriate contact with them during massage therapy sessions.”
KPRC2 legal analyst Brian Wice had this to say:
“With each additional lawsuit, this litigation continues to reach Defcon 1,” Wice said. “Deshaun Watson is caught in a West Texas hailstorm. He can’t run. He can’t hide and he can’t make it stop.”
The first 22 lawsuits were filed in March and April of 2021, with 23 and 24 coming in the past week.
Watson has been accused by massage therapists of harassing, assaulting or touching them during appointments when he was still a member of the Houston Texans.
A new article from Jenny Vrentas of the Times reports that Watson met with at least 66 women for massages in a 17-month period.
The former Texans quarterback seemingly replied to the article in an Instagram story posted last Tuesday.
The 26-year-old quoted the song “Rich Off Pain” and included the lyrics, “See, the blogs can’t break me down, see, I’m the voice, I don’t reply. But the rumors y’all done heard, I’ma humbly deny, yeah, yeah.”
The quarterback denied assaulting, harassing or disrespecting any woman during his introductory press conference with Cleveland in March.
