Just when it was starting to look like Antonio Brown was going to stay out of the news for a while, the new Patriot’s antics have allegedly taken a far more serious turn. Brown has been sued by a former trainer who claims he sexually assaulted and raped her.

In paperwork filed in a Florida federal court, Britney Taylor — who attended college with Brown before becoming his personal trainer — claims he sexually assaulted her on three separate occasions. “Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017,” the suit reads. “He exposed himself and kissed her without her permission, and while she was watching a television program at his home, Brown started masturbating behind her and ejaculated on her back.”

After Brown apologized for the incidents, Taylor began working with him again — until May 2018, when “Brown forced her onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress and forcibly raped her,” the suit says. It’s unclear if Taylor reported the incidents to police. Brown has not yet commented on the lawsuit.

Do you think Brown will still be playing for the NFL next year? Could this woman be an opportunist who’s attacking Brown at a vulnerable time?
