According to TMZ, the woman who was hired to paint a mural in AB's home claims the wide receiver had sex with another woman in the same room while she was working on the project. In the initial Sports Illustrated piece, the unidentified woman explains that Brown hired her to do the mural in 2017. While working on the painting, she claims AB made sexual advances toward her but she declined his pursuit because she felt he was being "inappropriate."
After going public with her story, Brown allegedly sent the woman threatening messages in a group text. In the thread, AB condemned her for telling her version of events and ordered his associates to look into her life. He also sent pictures of her children to her, which she interpreted as a threat. This prompted her lawyer, Lisa J. Banks, to send a letter to the NFL stating that her client was "understandably frightened by these text messages, which are clearly intended to threaten and intimidate her."
NFL insiders told ESPN the Patriots viewed these text messages as "real evidence" and released Brown from the team. The league launched an immediate investigation into the woman's accusations.
Adding to his legal troubles, Antonio Brown has been ordered to subject himself to a videotaped deposition regarding a lawsuit that claims he trashed a condominium in 2018.
Despite airing out his emotions on Twitter, AB doesn't seem to be focused on the speculations that surround him. Now that he'll likely miss the entire season waiting for these legal situations to unfold, Brown has decided to use his free time to continue his education. AB posted a picture to his Instagram Stories showing that he re-enrolled at Central Michigan University. The school's spokeswoman, Heather Smith, confirmed to MLive.com that Brown has enrolled in Central Michigan's online degree completion course.
