"New England Patriots receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of raping his former trainer, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida.The lawsuit says that Brown — in three separate incidents, two in June 2017 and another in May 2018 — sexually assaulted a woman named Britney Taylor, a gymnast whom he met while they were attending Central Michigan together and whom he later hired as a trainer."
"In the statement, Taylor also said she would cooperate with the N.F.L. in an investigation.
It was not clear whether Taylor reported her accusations to the police."
"The statement from Brown’s lawyer acknowledged at least one instance when the two engaged in consensual sex and said that “any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual.”
A spokesman for the Patriots said in an email that the team had not heard about the allegations or the lawsuit."
