It looks like Deshaun Watson’s girlfriend is sticking by his side.
Deshaun Watson has been going through a public relations nightmare in the past month as some 23 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior have been filed against him. We found out last week that one of the lawsuits was dropped by a plaintiff “for now,” according to court documents.
On Sunday, Watson’s girlfriend Jilly Anais showed the world she is sticking by his side by posting several photos of a vacation in the mountains. In the last picture, the Houston Texans QB could be seen on a jet ski with her as she gives the camera two middle fingers.
“No service inside the mountains, no reaching me.. #WeekendPhotoDump, Jilly captioned the post.
Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio said last week that the team is “respectful of the legal process” and that he doesn’t have “any comment” on the situation.
“I know [Texans CEO] Cal [McNair] and ownership put a letter out a few weeks ago just relative to the organization’s stance, relative to where we are,” Caserio said. “So I don’t have anything to add other than it’s a legal process. We’re respectful of the legal process and where that is. So we’re focused on today. We’re focused on getting ready for the offseason program and getting ready for the draft, so that’s where our focus is.”
Caserio was asked Friday about potential contingency plans at quarterback if Watson is not available.
“We’re not going to really get into a lot of hypotheticals and a lot of speculation,” Caserio said. “I’m not really good at that. Maybe somebody else is better at that than me. If you want to speculate, you should probably buy Bitcoin and focus on that. So we’re just going to focus on the things we can control, which is kind of getting ready for the draft and trying to take advantage of the opportunities to add to our team and build our roster.”
NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy called the allegations against Watson “deeply disturbing,” noting, “we take these issues very seriously.”
