A third lawsuit has been filed against Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, with another licensed massage therapist alleging sexual assault and harassment.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday night in Harris County district court, accuses Watson of “forcing [the massage therapist] to perform oral sex” during a massage in Houston in December 2020.
The first two lawsuits filed against Watson were for incidents that allegedly took place in March and August of 2020. Watson has publicly denied the allegations from the first lawsuit, but has not commented since. The latest lawsuit claims Watson first made contact with the massage therapist via direct message on Instagram and solicited an appointment.
According to the lawsuit, soon after the massage on Dec. 28 began, Watson “aggressively started dictating the massage and where he wanted Plaintiff to touch him.” Watson allegedly asked, repeatedly, that his “inner thighs” and “inner glutes” be massaged and then “kept fixating on the ‘insertion of his hamstrings.’”
The massage therapist grew uncomfortable, according to the suit, but Watson “made clear, repeatedly, that he was a professional football player, who could help, or hurt, her career.”
Later, as the massage therapist was working on his ribcage, Watson allegedly “got more aggressive, forcefully telling her to move her hand down to his pubic area … [and] instructed her to slide her hand across his genitals,” the lawsuit claims. Watson then allegedly “coerced Plaintiff to move her mouth towards his penis, forcing Plaintiff to perform oral sex on him,” according to the suit.
The plaintiff is seeking “minimal compensatory damages,” though the lawsuit notes that she has “suffered mental anguish as a result of Watson’s behavior.”
High-profile Texas attorney Tony Buzbee has filed all three lawsuits on behalf of women alleging misconduct by Watson, and said on social media Wednesday that there are six total lawsuits to be filed.
The allegations against Watson come as the 25-year-old quarterback is in the midst of a stalemate with the Texans. He has requested a trade after signing a four-year, $160 million extension last fall, though the Texans have publicly said they have no intention of trading him.
