Being a multi-millionaire and a well-known athlete in the National Football League — Deshaun Watson had access to some of the best masseuses the world has to offer, yet he would allegedly find random women on social media to get what he wanted to be done.
At least two of his accusers have stated that he brought them to The Houstonian to massage him. At The Houstonian, which is an upscale hotel and club in downtown Houston, Watson would make them both feel uncomfortable as he would touch them with his genitals after exposing himself.
“He takes women in some of these cases to The Houstonian, which (offers luxury massage services to customers), but he’s bringing in women who aren’t even licensed in massage?” the attorney for the women, Tony Buzbee, said to USA TODAY Sports earlier month.
“The Houstonian offered professional luxury massage spa services at the Solaya Spa & Salon by The Houstonian, just three miles away from the hotel. The hotel even provided a free shuttle to get there and back, plus discounts to all guests in 2020 and gifts with treatments to hotel guests, according to the hotel.”
Watson suggested another unlicensed therapist come to his suite at The Houstonian in July 2020, weeks before Texans training camp opened on Aug. 14, 2020. He first contacted this woman on Snapchat and saw the women for four sessions from July to September 2020, with Watson’s behavior getting “progressively worse,” including exposing himself, touching her with his genitals, and ejaculating in front of her, according to her lawsuit.”
Watson’s activity there has been subject to increased scrutiny in recent weeks as the pretrial discovery process has intensified. In one case, two weeks after meeting a woman on Instagram, he flew her in from Atlanta to give him a massage in his suite at The Houstonian, where she said he exposed himself and caused his genitals to touch her inappropriately on Aug. 28, 2020, according to her lawsuit against him.”
Watson had an account there, but he is unlikely to return after 22 women came out against him. Plus, he has since been traded to the Cleveland Browns. The 26-year-old denies any wrongdoing, and two grand juries declined to indict him on criminal charges in 10 cases that were reported to the police.
The NFL has said it is monitoring developments and could suspend him for a violation of it personal conduct policy.
