Another sexual assault lawsuit has been filed against Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.

A plaintiff operating under the name of Jane Doe sued the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback for alleged sexual misconduct Thursday during a December 2020 massage session inside of a hotel room. Doe, who is a licensed massage therapist, alleges in a nine-page lawsuit that Watson went into the bathroom prior to the massage and came out with only a towel on. As the massage session proceeded, Watson took his towel off and asked the therapist to “get on top,” according to the lawsuit. Though Doe refused to engage in vaginal sex with him, the plaintiff claims that Watson pressured her into giving him oral sex, according to the lawsuit.

Since the massage, Doe is said to suffer from mental anguish from her alleged encounter with the quarterback. The lawsuit claims that she now has “severe depression and anxiety.” (RELATED: Former WWE Wrestler Sara Lee Dies At Age 30)

This lawsuit just adds to a long list of women that have similarly accused Watson of egregious sexual behavior. A massage therapist separate to Doe claimed that during a massage in 2021 Watson contacted her hands and arms multiple times with his fully erect penis and ejaculated onto her arm during the session.

Another woman by the name of Nia Lewis, who is also a massage therapist, said during a an interview in 2021 that Watson was adamant during their session to massage the inside of his anus.

The quarterback’s alleged behavior has landed Watson an 11-game suspension. Watson, who rejoined the Browns on Monday, brings drama to a team vying for the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if the NFL will extend the suspension of Watson knowing of the new lawsuit.

Watson brings a dark cloud over the heads of his new team in Cleveland. They would have been better off never trading for him to begin with.
