Late Thursday night, Attorney Lisa J. Banks wrote to the National Football League, asking them to stop alleged conduct by Brown that she deemed as “intimidating and threatening to our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy,” according to the report.
An artist contacted Sports Illustrated on Wednesday night and told them how received a group text message from Antonio Brown that showed Brown encouraging others to investigate her, describing her as a “super broke girl” and asking someone he refers to as “Eric B” to “look up her background history.”
“Our client … is understandably frightened by these text messages, which are clearly intended to threaten and intimidate her,” the lawyer wrote. “While she certainly qualifies as a ‘starving artist,’ she has never approached Mr. Brown, nor will she, about seeking money to compensate her for his sexual misconduct, contrary to his allegations in the text messages.”
The NFL acted quickly, arranging a phone call between investigators and the attorneys for the artist, according to a source that told SI.
All of this new information stems from the artist telling SI about an incident where she accused Brown of making unwanted sexual advances on her after he hired her to paint a mural in his home.
After arriving at his home, the woman at first thought nothing of Brown’s flirtations—an uncomfortable yet constant reality of her professional life—and she was thrilled by his willingness to share her work on social media; he even posted a live video showcasing her progress. “It was very exciting, to have this person interested in my work,” the woman says. “He acted like he trusted me and he let me do my thing.”
On her second day, however, the atmosphere curdled. The artist says at one point she was in a kneeling position while painting and turned to find Brown behind her, naked, holding a small hand towel over his genitals. “He was flirty with me but I paid him no mind because I was there on business, plus, I had already seen him with multiple girls in the short time I was with him,” says the woman. “I was about 40% done on the second day, and I’m on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt-ass naked, with a hand cloth covering his [penis] and starts having a conversation with me.” She took it as a clear sexual come-on. “Unfortunately, I’ve been tried [by men] a lot of times, so I just kept my cool and kept painting,” she says. “After that, it all ended abruptly.”
One only knows how long the Patriots will deal with this before they cut him loose.
