Report: Antonio Brown sent ‘intimidating’ texts to accuser
A woman who alleges former Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown made an unwanted sexual advance toward her said she received what she described as intimidating text messages from a number associated with Brown, according to Sports Illustrated.
Sports Illustrated published an article this week detailing a few allegations against Brown, ranging from unpaid debts to sexual misconduct involving the woman. In a follow-up article Thursday, the news outlet reported that the artist’s attorney sent a letter to the NFL reporting that she was part of a text message group that included messages from a number Brown previously gave her.
The letter included screen shots of the messages. The person sending the messages suggested the woman, who is an artist, was looking for money. Brown asked others involved in the group text to look into the artist’s background.
The woman also contends she was never paid for painting a mural of Brown at his home.
The artist told Sports Illustrated that, while she was painting a mural of Brown, he was naked at one point when he approached her, holding a small towel over his genitals. Brown has denied the allegations.
He was released by the Oakland Raiders earlier this month and agreed to a contract with the New England Patriots the same day.
Asked by SI via text to confirm or deny the details of the woman’s charge of intimidation, the respondent at the number purported to be AB's replied “foh clown” https://t.co/mzgxSfKJyo
