RadioOnFire.com – Famed NFL player Antonio Brown was publicly accused of rape by his former personal trainer, Brittany Taylor, and photos have now surfaced of the former college gymnast.
According to several outlets, Brown and Taylor first met at Central Michigan University, where Brown played college football and Taylor was a gymnast. According to Brown’s lawyer, Taylor approached Brown to ask him to invest $1.6 million into her business, which he declined, leading Taylor to cut off all communication. She then resurfaced in 2018 to approach Brown about being his personal trainer for the upcoming season.
On Tuesday (September 10), Taylor released a statement accusing Brown of raping her.
“As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision. I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault. Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape. I will cooperate with the NFL and any other agencies; however, at this time, I respectfully request that the media please respect my privacy.”
Brown has denied all allegations by Taylor, with his lawyer claiming that they had consensual sex.
