During his introductory press conference with the Browns back in May, Watson fielded several questions from reporters about his ongoing legal troubles and the number of accusations leveled against him. When asked specifically about the number of massages he’s had, Watson claimed that it was around 40 over the course of his career in Texas.
But according to The New York Times report, they found Watson had booked appointments with at least 66 different massage therapists within a 17-month time span. That presents a huge problem that could lead to him being ousted from his new team, according to Amy Dash.
The legal Correspondent, who is a two-time Emmy Award-winning reporter and producer, spoke on how the Browns built a strong out in the $230 million contract.
“The @Brownshave built a strong out into the contract. If Watson did in fact get massages from 66 different women in 17 months, lawsuit number 24 may be just the beginning. If more criminal complaints are filed, Browns may decide it is just not worth it…”
Twenty-four of those women have since filed civil lawsuits and while some say they did not experience incidents of sexual misconduct, several others revealed more patterns of misbehavior.
Watson admitted to having consensual sex with at least three of the women he hired as massage therapists, but has maintained since the initial misconduct allegations first surfaced that he has done nothing wrong.
Watson allegedly attempted to settle the 22 outstanding lawsuits back in October, but the settlement fell through because not every woman was willing to take his offer.
