Drew Rosenhaus: “Antonio and I have been unfortunately anticipated this possibility… Antonio takes these allegations very seriously. He’s a loving father of five children including a daughter. These allegations are false and he denies every one of them. I wouldn’t be doing this interview if I didn’t believe Antonio. I’m very confident his legal team has facts and will prove them. Keep in mind, this is a civil matter, this is not a criminal matter. People judge Antonio without knowing the facts… I’m advising him to let the truth come out, focus on football, and cooperate with the Patriots, the NFL, and the NFLPA. This is a money grab. This is a civil matter and this is a proceeding where the accuser is seeking financial gain." (Full Interview at Bottom of Page).
Antonio Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus appeared on ESPN’s ‘Coast to Coast’ program on Wednesday denying all sexual assault allegations that were included in the disturbing lawsuit against Brown by his former trainer, Britney Taylor.
In the lawsuit, the woman alleges Brown "exposed himself and kissed her without her consent" in the first incident in June of 2017. In the second incident she alleges "Later that month, Brown, while positioned behind her, began masturbating near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back". The women then claimed Brown a year later on May 20th, 2018, "cornered her, forced her down onto a bed, pusher her face into the mattress, and forcibly raped her."
Brown's accuser published a series of graphic messages in the report with Brown repeatedly calling her a 'weak b*tch', and a 'sick a** h** and also referenced Brown ejaculating on her back, like her suit alleged.
Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Cari Champion that he and Brown had been ‘anticipating’ the possibility of these accusations coming to light, but emphatically called the allegations ‘false’ and said he wouldn’t be doing this Live interview if he didn’t believe his client.
Rosenhaus told Champion that he wants everyone following the case to remember this is a civil matter, and doesn’t involve any criminal charges. He said Brown’s accuser is simply seeking financial gain, and that the whole stunt is a ‘money grab.’
Brown’s lawyer released a statement minutes after the news broke on Wednesday that denied all the allegations.
Brown was at Patriots practice on Wednesday, and the team has made no determination to Brown’s status for their Week 2 matchup in Miami versus the Dolphins.
Neither the Patriots nor NFL reportedly knew about the charges till the lawsuit was officially brought to light on Wednesday night.
