Did Watson smash shorty or was just inappropriate?
Man these n*ggas don't even know what he's accused of. This ain't no Cosby sh*t and it has nothing to do with r*pe.

Basically these chicks saying he got hard during the massage and his d*ck touched them while they massaged his inner thigh. I mean.. Think about that. Which would be normal in their scope of work. Honestly though they're only saying that so they can use the term a*sault. Why? Because dumbasses will come online and see "s*xual a*sault" and think that means r*pe.

Just like 25 years later clowns still saying Pac had a r*pe charge, when it wasn't.

A reddit user: "putting this together last night because I realized that a lot of the information that I and others were getting about the case was getting filtered through a very long game of telephone. I could not find anywhere on the internet where all of the information released so far could be viewed in a seamless manner, so I decided to spend a few hours putting it together myself.

I've collected all of the sworn testimonies affidavits, along with statements by relevant parties and other smaller details. I was originally using this article for the summaries of each lawsuit, but a few cases into this project I realized that those summaries leave out a lot of important details and some of the JANE DOE's don't match-up, so I ended up drafting most of the summaries myself. I sometimes still used their summary as a skeleton to build off of, so if some of the summaries read like they've been written by two different people, that's why.

Each summary includes a link to the full lawsuit. The highlighted portions of each summary are the most important details, if you're just trying to skim. Each summary includes the relevant dates along with the credentials/employment of each JANE DOE, so hopefully some of the rumors claiming that most of these women were "Instagram Hookers" can be put to rest.

Everything is in chronological order based on the dates of the alleged a*saults, along with the day-by-day events/statements that have been released the past week. JANE DOE 1 just so happened to be the earliest accusation, JANE DOE 13 was the second earliest, ect.

I have also transcribed Tony Buzbees entire opening statement from his press conference, in case anyone would prefer to read it. I can't fit it into this post but I'll comment it and then link it to the relevant spot.

There will no doubt be mistakes throughout this, my brain did start to overheat towards the last few JANE DOEs. So if you catch any please let me know so that I can correct them. I want people to be able to use this as a resource to prevent misinformation."

JANE DOE 1 (!)

First contact: March 28th, 2020

Allegations: March 30th, 2020

Credentials: Licensed Massage Therapist/Business Owner

Summary:

The plaintiff accuses Watson of civil a*sault during a massage at her home last March. Watson reached out to her on March 28th to schedule an appointment. The plaintiff had been working hard to grow her small business since 2018. Plaintiff was excited and encouraged that a local sports star was seeking out her services.

Via text, Watson asked the plaintiff if she was "comfortable with certain areas [his] organization was making [him] get worked on".

Watson also asked her "Am I expecting to see someone else there? Is it just you.". This gave the plaintiff pause, but she was able to justify it to herself by a*suming Watson just wanted privacy.

During the massage, Watson began to aggressively dictate the massage and complain that she was not doing what he wanted. The plaintiff began to think that Watson only wanted s*x.

Watson repeatedly directed her towards his p*nis. She alleges that he purposely exposed the tip of his now fully erect p*nis from under the towel. He began moving himself to expose himself more, and eventually turned to touch her hand with his p*nis.

The plaintiff immediately ended the massage and started to cry. After telling him to leave, Watson said "I know you have a career and a reputation, and I know you would hate for someone to mess with yours, just like I don't want anyone messing with mine."

Later, Watson reached out to her via text message to apologize. She did not respond.

A few weeks later, she was DM'ed on Instagram by two other NFL players, saying "Big D" had recommended her to them. The lawsuit implies that she did not respond to these messages either.





JANE DOE 13

First contact: April 19th, 2020

Allegations: April 19th, 2020

Credentials: Licensed Esthetician/Business Owner

Summary:

When Watson reached out to this plaintiff for a massage, she was confused, as she is an esthetician who only markets and offers skin care services. However, she was excited that an NFL player was reaching out to use her services.

Watson told her that he liked to keep his business confidential.

She told Watson that she did not specialize in massages and Watson indicated that it was fine. Plaintiff told Watson over DM that she was nervous as she had never worked with a famous athlete before. Watson promised to walk her through it and give her direction.

After arriving at the spa, Watson aggressively dictated the session. Watson asked the plaintiff to "go deeper" into his buttocks. The plaintiff says that she began to get scared, but a*sumed that Watson was used to licensed professionals and would not be making unusual requests.

When Watson turned onto his back, he dropped the towel, exposing his erect p*nis. He told her not to pick the towel up. As the plaintiff massaged Watson's groin area, he repeatedly turned to touch her hand with his p*nis. Plaintiff was frightened and confused but she tried to ignore it.

Shortly after, Watson ejaculated. She was mortified and told a family member afterwards.





JANE DOE 15 (!)

First contact: May 2020

Allegations: May 28th, 2020

Credentials: Licensed Personal Trainer/Business Owner

Summary:

According to this lawsuit, Watson requested a massage from the married plaintiff in May 2020.

The massage was scheduled to take place at his house and he told her to come to the session dressed in "casually relaxing attire" and also that "you don't have to be full professional," according to the lawsuit.

During the session, Watson exposed his erect p*nis and wiped pre-ejaculate onto her hand. As soon as he did this, the plaintiff froze from fear and confusion. She began repeating "I do not know. I do not know."

She ended the massage immediately. He got up, still completely nekkid, and asked to give her a hug. She refused and rushed out of the house. She says that she told a friend and a family member what had happened as soon as she got home.

According to the lawsuit the woman "felt violated and disgusted and felt as though she was trapped in some weird nightmare" after the incident.

The lawsuit goes on to claim that Watson texted her the same day and asked if she was OK and also repeatedly reached out asking to book her again. She says she either ignored or rejected the requests.

First contact: June 2020

Allegations: June 2nd, 2020

Credentials: Licensed Massage Therapist/Business Owner

Summary:

The plaintiff is a licensed massage therapist with eleven years experience who works regularly with athletes. She says that she has never had any issues prior to Watson.

She said he told her “I make a lot of massage therapists uncomfortable and it’s really hard for me to find someone who will meet my needs.”

Watson also kept asking that the massage be really private and asked if anyone else would be around when he arrived at the location.

As soon as the massage started, Watson laid face down on the table completely nud*, exposing his buttocks. She insisted that he cover up but he refused. He exposed his p*nis to her several times.

She said she felt trapped and angry, as she prides herself on her reputation. She says that she became terrified as Watson kept twisting his body to touch her with his p*nis.

Afterwards, Watson contacted her seven more times to schedule another appointment. She either declined or ignored all of his requests and never worked with him again.



JANE DOE 9

First contact: (Arranged)

First Allegations: June 2020

*Second Allegations: August 17th, 2020

Credentials: Spa Worker

Summary:

The lawsuit, which involves a spa worker in training to become a licensed massage therapist, describes a more graphic interaction.

In June 2020, the woman was asked to meet Watson at a hotel after he arranged an appointment through her spa manager, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims Watson groped the woman before suddenly leaving without paying full price. The documents said the manager told the woman that Watson said he underpaid her because “she had not given him what he wanted.”

*A month later, the same woman claims she got a direct message from Watson on Instagram requesting a massage. At the time, court documents said she was unaware it was the same man from the alleged hotel incident.

According to court documents, she agreed to meet with Watson at the spa at a time they would be mostly alone. She recognized him when he arrived, and the lawsuit states Watson apologized for his previous behavior and said, “he had never been rejected by a woman before.”

The lawsuit claims the woman was “embarrassed” and “humiliated” as the player allegedly made several inappropriate advances, including demanding s*xual acts before leaving the spa.

She is currently receiving psychiatric counseling for the trauma she endured during the alleged incident, the lawsuit said.





JANE DOE 12

First contact: July 2020

Allegations: July 2020

Credentials: Business Owner

Summary:

Court documents said the woman normally offers professional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and detoxing. She is and was in a committed relationship.

In July 2020, the lawsuit alleges Watson reached out to her on Instagram asking if she was an esthetician and she said no but offered to refer him to one. He allegedly declined her offer and asked if she would give him a Swedish massage.

According to the lawsuit, the woman told Watson massages aren't her expertise but she would be willing to try. Court documents said she was willing to give the massage in the hopes that having a celebrity client would further promote her business.

They arranged a session at the woman's house over the phone, according to the lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, Watson requested "she wear something comfortable that she likes to wear around the house."

On the way to the plaintiff's house, Watson texted her asking if anyone else would be at the house. He said he wanted to "know [his] surroundings". Plaintiff a*sured him that it would just be her.

During the session, according to court documents, Watson asked the woman to massage his groin and private area. It also alleges the player touched himself inappropriately and then ejaculated on the woman. He then left the house.

Immediately afterward, the lawsuit says the woman called a friend and told her what happened. It said the woman felt "violated, disgusted and ashamed."





JANE DOE 14 (!)

First contact: July 2020

Allegations: July 15th, 2020

Credentials: Licensed Massage Therapist/Business Owner

Summary:

A Los Angeles massage therapist, who has several years of experience working with professional football players and high-profile athletes, also is accusing Watson of s*xual misconduct. She has never had a problem with any other client.

According to the lawsuit, Watson sent the woman a direct message on Instagram inquiring about her services in July 2020. The NFL star reached out complaining of back pain and they arranged to meet at a house in Beverly Hills, the lawsuit said.

During the session, the lawsuit alleges Watson brought the therapist to a room and locked the door behind them, prompting her to grab her mace. She claims Watson “chuckled” and the session proceeded seemingly as normal until she returned from the bathroom.

Watson aggressively dictated the massage. He asked her to massage his "glutes", to which she firmly said no. He then flipped over and removed his towel, revealing his erection.

At some point, Watson grabbed her hand and placed it on his erect p*nis. He also kept trying to direct her hand to his butthole.

The lawsuit claims Watson told the woman not to talk about the appointment, which she considered a threat.

Watson is accused of reaching out to the same woman again in December 2020 about scheduling an appointment in Chicago, but she didn’t respond.

Before the appointment, Watson insisted multiple times that the session be "private" and kept asking if anyone else would be around. Watson also asked if he needed to be covered, to which she said absolutely.

During the massage, Watson made several requests for her to massage places she was not comfortable with. She eventually stepped back and made it verbally clear to Watson that this was going to remain professional.

After a few minutes Watson briefly exposed his p*nis. She tried to tell herself it was just an innocent mistake. Eventually he started making inappropriate requests again.

JANE DOE 8

First contact: March 3rd, 2021

Allegations: March 5th, 2021

Credentials: Licensed Massage Therapist/Business Owner

Summary:

Plaintiff owns her own massage therapy business in Georgia. She is a single mother of two children.

Watson reached out to plaintiff over Instagram DM to arrange an appointment in Atlanta. They arranged it for the 4th, but Watson did not message the plaintiff until 9PM that night and she did not feel comfortable. They agreed to do the massage the next day.

Watson asked plaintiff if the suite she had rented for the massage was private. She said yes. He insisted on entering through a back door.

At the start, Watson told her to remove her mask, but she refused due to COVID regulations that required her to wear it while working with a client.

Watson stripped nekkid and got on the massage table, which made the plaintiff uncomfortable so she covered him with a sheet. Eventually he told her to remove the sheet and "get into his glutes". Plaintiff told Watson that he was not to lay on her table nekkid.

Eventually, while still working on his glutes, Watson told her to "go deeper" and oil his buttocks. She was uncomfortable but felt she could not afford to upset Watson so she complied. Watson then flipped over and asked her to massage his testicles. She declined, but Watson removed the sheet anyway and exposed his p*nis to her. He then put his p*nis on her hand as she tried to cover him, which shocked her and made her recoil.

Watson realized that the plaintiff was not going to do what he wanted, so he paid her and left.

MARCH 16TH:



- JANE DOE 1 LAWSUIT FILED



TONY BUZBEE STATEMENT:

"I am extremely proud to represent those who have no perceived power against those who have PERCEIVED power. Things are changing in this country, in this great state, and in this great city. And I feel like itís for the better, for all of us! Today we filed suit against Deshaun Watson. Too many times women have put up with behavior that we all know no one should put up with. Should we make excuses for the famous? Or those who hold special positions, or quarterbacks on a local professional football team? I donít think so! All people are equal, and all deserve dignity and respect. My dad was a butcher. My mother drove my school bus and worked in the snack bar. Knowing what I know now: My momma had more dignity in her pinky finger than most executives or coaches or politicians or famous athletes have in their whole bodies! This case we just filed against Watson isnít about moneyóitís about dignity and stopping behavior that should be stopped, NOW! Stay tuned for details. LET ME SAY THIS. Iím a Marine. Iím not easily intimidated. If you have info or have been part of this, contact my office: txattorneys.com."


DESHAUN WATSON STATEMENT:

"As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plantiffs lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. The plantiff's lawyer claims that this isn't about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn't about money for me - it's about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that."



MARCH 17TH:



TONY BUZBEE STATEMENT:

"My a*sociate, Cornelia, and I will file the second of what is now four cases on behalf of women against Deshaun Watson today. The cases allege a*sault. We won't share the alleged details here, and we won't try the case in the press, but the cases are publicly filed for all to see. I appreciate the calls of support that we have received from those who support these brave women. It takes a lot of guts to stand up to the powerful, when you are perceived powerless. Since filing the first case yesterday, I have had several death threats and multiple people have harassed my children. The blame the victim (or her lawyers) mentality is alive and well!! I love football as much as the next person (although I've never been a Texans fan.) But I don't love it that much!! Makes me shake my head that people are so passionate about football to the point of irrationality, while at the same time they could care less who the mayor or president will be."



- JANE DOE 2 LAWSUIT FILED



TONY BUZBEE STATEMENT:

"Third lawsuit of now six to be filed, against Deshaun Watson, alleging a*sault. This one is the most egregious, to date. Again, I won't share details here, but we have open courts in our Texas Constitution, meaning all lawsuits are public record. Our staff has received numerous calls. We screen each one, and I personally talk with and screen any individual on whose behalf we file. I've been doing this a long time. I don't need "fame," and, to be quite honest, and I say this as modestly as I can, if I never made another penny I would be quite okay. Point is, I'm not pursuing these cases for the money, and every woman who has filed thus far has only plead the minimum amount to invoke the court's jurisdiction ($500). This isn't about the money!! And to be clear: Iíve had many high profile cases in my life. I represented a sitting governor when he faced life in prison. Iíve represented widows, orphans, amputees, and those horribly burned or injured. As lead, Iíve handled many mass torts and class actions recovering hundreds of millions of dollars. Iíve tried and won some of the largest cases in Texas history. But, I will say Iíve never faced the nastiness and vitriol Iíve experienced in this case. People are crazy! Threatening my kids? People I know? Threatening my fiancť? Telling me they will k*ll me or they hope I die? All because of football?? Get a grip!! Yet: We wonít be deterred or intimidated by key board warriors. As a Recon Marine Iíve seen dangeróIím not at all concerned by dumb sh*ts with a keyboard. Haha. Iíll continue to proudly represent those who are written off and marginalized in our society. These cases are exactly why many of us became lawyers."

TONY BUZBEE STATEMENT:

"The Buzbee Law Firm has now been hired by nine women to bring cases against Deshaun Watson. The allegations are similar. We have filed three, and, as we complete our due diligence, will file the remaining ones in due course. We are talking to several others. Cornelia and I appreciate the kind words, and outpouring of support for these brave women who are wiling to come forward and be heard. No matter what you do in life, there will always be detractors. As my dad always said: "If you are right, go ahead!" And so we go."

DAVID MULUGHETA STATEMENT (Deshaun Watson's agent):

"s*xual a*sault is real. Victims should be heard, offenders prosecuted. Individuals fabricate stories in pursuit of financial gain often. Their victims should be heard, and those offenders also prosecuted. I simply hope we keep this same energy with the truth."

RUSTY HARDIN STATEMENT:

"I want to emphasize at the outset that we and Deshaun recognize that s*xual a*sault and harassment are not only unlawful, but morally wrong. It takes courage for women to come forward to report being mistreated, particularly when they attach their names to a lawsuit. We do not take these allegations lightly. However, fairness to the accused is equally as important.

Opposing counsel has orchestrated a circus-like atmosphere by using social media to publicize 14 'Jane Doe' lawsuits during the past seven days in a manner calculated to inflame the public and malign Deshaun’s otherwise sterling reputation. In addition, the tactic of refusing our requests to confidentially provide the names of the plaintiffs so we can fully investigate their claims makes uncovering the truth extremely difficult. Anonymity is often necessary as a shield for victims but opposing counsel has used it as a sword to publicly humiliate Deshaun before the truth seeking process can even begin.

I believe that any allegation that Deshaun forced a woman to commit a s*xual act is completely false. And in the one case in which we have been able to identify a plaintiff, we have strong evidence showing the allegation is false. In January of this year, a woman attempted to blackmail Deshaun by demanding $30,000 in exchange for her "indefinite silence" about what she stated was a consensual encounter. It is our belief this woman is the plaintiff in Cause No. 2021-15613. (Please see the attached declaration by Bryan Burney.) This calls into question the legitimacy of the other cases as well.

We have received numerous unsolicited comments in the past week from many licensed massage therapists who have worked with Deshaun in recent years. These women describe him as a gentleman and a model client who never engaged in inappropriate conduct. Indeed, before these salacious claims, everyone who a*sociated with Deshaun described him as an outstanding, respectful, and compassionate man.

Again, we are taking the allegations very seriously but we ask only that people not rush to judgment, that people not be unduly influenced by opposing counsel's antics, and that they let fundamental fairness to both sides rule the day. Thank you for your patience and understanding."



BRYAN BURNEY DECLARATION (Deshaun Watson's equipment manager):

"1. My name is Bryan Burney. I am the marketing manager for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, and have had this role for more than three years. I have personal knowledge of the facts stated in this declaration; they are true and correct.

In mid-January 2021, I spoke with an individual who I believe is the Plaintiff, identified as “Jane Doe,” in Jane Doe v. Deshaun Watson, Cause No. 2021-15613 [ JANE DOE 3 ], currently pending in Harris County, Texas. It is clear to me that the person I spoke with met with Deshaun on December 28, 2020, the same day that Jane Doe contends in her petition that she met with Deshaun. When I spoke with Ms. Doe in January, she stated that she wanted a “settlement” from Deshaun, though what exactly she wished to “settle” was not clear to me.

During my discussions with Ms. Doe, I questioned the factual basis for the “settlement” that she was requesting from Deshaun. Ms. Doe informed me that she was asking to be paid $30,000 for what she referred to as “indefinite silence” about her encounter with Deshaun. I asked her what she would be silent about and whether anything had happened with Deshaun against her will. She confirmed that everything that occurred was consensual during her encounter with Deshaun. I asked Ms. Doe why Deshaun should pay for silence regarding something that was consensual – whatever it was. She said that it was a matter that both she and Deshaun would wish to keep secret and that she would need to be paid for her “silence.”

After my conversation with Ms. Doe, I received a call from a man purporting to be her “business manager.” Ms. Doe’s business manager told me that her encounter with Deshaun would be embarrassing if revealed and that Deshaun should pay to keep the matter secret.

I told this individual that his demand to be paid for not revealing a consensual interaction between two adults was extortion.

He responded, “It’s not extortion, it’s blackmail.”

I informed this individual that Deshaun would not be paying the $30,000 requested.

In the years that I have known Deshaun, I have known him to be a respectful, decent human being. I do not believe him capable of the conduct that “Jane Doe” has anonymously accused him of in this case. This conduct is also completely inconsistent with multiple statements made by Jane Doe and by her “business manager,” indicating that her encounter with Deshaun involved only consensual activity."



TONY BUZBEE STATEMENT:

“Alleged s*xual misconduct is serious. Attempting to criminalize or minimize those that speak out or step forward is wrong. I have been asked to respond to a released statement by Mr. Watson’s counsel.

My first reaction is that there have been so many massage sessions from Instagram that Mr. Watson can’t keep track of them—recall he, on Twitter, initially criticized me and denied everything. I can’t tell you how many people have stepped forward to report similar conduct or provide information. That info will be released, again in public filings—not in the media.

My second reaction is a question: why would his marketing agent admit Watson had s*x for pay with a massage therapist, consensual or otherwise? We will also provide a copy of the non-disclosure agreement that Deshaun Watson and his marketing manager repeatedly insisted that Jane Doe (and others) sign after (and sometimes before) the “massage session,” which she refused to sign.

I do appreciate Mr. Hardin’s professionalism and his words of support for victims, but would respectfully suggest there are many facts here, that we will put in public filings, that Mr. Hardin might not be aware of. We will provide additional details in a statement, consistent with our ethical obligations in due course. I’m hoping we can do so by Friday."

Even if Watson beat all the lawsuits, what NFL team wants to commit to a QB who is now mentally drained and what organization want women protesting outside of their stadium when he comes to town?

One last thing... he been in the league a minute. This past year was financially harsh on a lot of folks. Seeing they are small-time business owners, and that the allegations were made only in March, 2 months after he demanded to be traded, and right after he denied an extortion attempt, would you say the timing is peculiar? And what do these allegations do for those who have been r*ped via overpowering, physical threaths, pentetration? We have to find a level of you did some creep sh*t and you have a problem, vs this Grey line of p*nis grazing hands during a massage. He isn't innocent and clean but I think the way its projected is more than what it is, is a money grab and diminishes women who went through what is standardly a brutal experience. Then again I wasn't there, but had they really not known who he was, something tells me they would have been immediately going to the police, not holding receipts are on to it until he demands a trade and is contacted by a prosecutor.

Only the people involved know the absolute truth. Similar to r Kelly, people who make money off him are willing to stay quiet about his flaws until they canít make money off of him anymore. The timing is no coincidence.
