It turns out that Deshaun Watson wasn’t the only player who allegedly had relations with massage therapists. In a new lawsuit, it’s alleged that at least two Genuine Touch therapists had relations with multiple Texans players.
The massage lawsuits against Deshaun Watson are getting interesting each passing day. According to TPS;
Attorney Tony Buzbee had previously stated he would proceed with his vow to sue the Texans for their alleged role in enabling Watson’s alleged misconduct.
Not only did that vow come true on Monday, but it led to even more damning information.
“Today we filed the first case of what will likely be many against the Houston Texans related to Deshaun Watson’s behavior,” Buzbee said in a press release. “Suffice it to say, the overwhelming evidence collected indicating that the Houston Texans enabled Watson’s behavior is incredibly damning. We believe the Texans knew or most certainly should have known of Watson’s conduct. Beyond that, we believe the filing speaks for itself.”
The petition alleges that Watson consistently refused to have massages performed at the team’s facility, and that he refused to utilize the services of the team’s selected massage therapy provider, Genuine Touch. The petition alleges on page two that in June 2020 the owner of Genuine Touch “complained to the Texans that Watson was seeking out unqualified strangers for massages via Instagram,” and that “Watson was putting himself in danger of contracting Covid, or getting himself sued.”
There was also an allegation that at least Genuine Touch therapists had sexual relations with multiple players on the Texans. At least one of those therapists were fired for those actions.
“There is an allegation in this lawsuit that at least two Genuine Touch therapists had sexual relations with multiple Texans players, the Texans knew of this activity, and at least one Genuine Touch therapist was fired due to sexual activity with Texans players”
The petition accuses the Texans of turning a “blind eye” to Watson’s behavior, and that the team actually enabled it by providing the NDA, by providing a room at The Houstonian in which Watson underwent massages.
“Watson was a Houston Texans’ employee; individuals within the Texans organization knew or should have known of Watson’s conduct,” the petition contends.
The Texans also had this to say about the allegations and the lawsuit filed against them via a statement;
“We are aware of the lawsuit filed against us today. Since March 2021, we have fully supported and complied with law enforcement and the various investigations. We will continue to take the necessary steps to address the allegations against our organization.”
