The Patriots released a statement addressing the suit filed against AB, saying … “We are aware of the civil lawsuit that was filed earlier today against Antonio Brown, as well as the response by Antonio’s representatives.”
“We take these allegations very seriously. Under no circumstance does this organization condone sexual violence or assault.”
“The league has informed us that they will be investigating. We will have no further comment while that investigation takes place.”
Brown’s attorney, Darren Heitner, has issued a statement adamantly denying the allegations — and claiming she only filed the suit to punish him for refusing to invest $1.6 million in a “business project” back in 2017.
Brown admits there was a “consensual personal relationship” between the two — acknowledging the accuser came to his home on multiple occasions … including a late night visit just 10 days after the alleged 2018 rape. “Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual.”
Brown also claims in Winter 2018 she hit up Brown to ask for tickets to a Steelers football game — and has continued to post pics with AB on her social media to benefit from the association with him.
Brown says he will “pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name, but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations.”
