Deshaun Watson is being sued by a 24th massage therapist accusing him of sexual misconduct.
The development was first reported by Cleveland.com. The newest lawsuit mentioned an interview by Watson’s attorney Rusty Hardin with Payne & Pendergast last Friday on SportsRadio 610 where Hardin stated that massages ending with happy endings were not illegal.
The 24th accuser also added that Watson masturbated in front of her until he ejeculated on her face and chest.
Tony Buzbee later said Hardin’s remarks would be addressed in court, per Cleveland.com:
In response to Hardin’s radio interview, Buzbee told ESPN’s John Barr that Hardin “may have single-handedly lost his client’s case because I’m absolutely going to use that comment because I think it speaks volumes to how he, his team and his client think about the massage industry.”
The 26-year-old Watson was previously cleared of criminal charges after grand juries in Harris and Brazoria counties in Houston declined to indict him. He has denied some of the alleged encounters ever happened and said others were consensual.
