Kellen Winslow: Rape accusations are “a money grab”

AP

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II has spoken publicly for the first time since he was charged with raping three different women, saying the women are targeting him because he’s rich.

It’s a money grab, and unfortunately that’s the society we live in now,” Winslow told FOX 5 in San Diego.

But there are plenty of people with money who don’t get falsely accused of rape. Why would three different women all choose Kellen Winslow II as the person to accuse in an attempt to get money? Winslow did not explain that, but he did profess his innocence.

“I’m innocent,” Winslow said. “To the people who know me out there, who know what type of person I am, know my character, my NFL friends and family, just my regular friends and family . . . they know who I am. And I’m an innocent guy. I’m an innocent man.”

Winslow is currently free on $2 million bail.

  1. …But there are plenty of people with money who don’t get falsely accused of rape… those people usually don’t hang out with people who would falsely accuse.

  2. How was the underage teen “targeting” you Kellen? You’ve only been linked by DNA, 15yrs later.

  3. Way to ruin your family name, your father’s legacy, your mother’s love, and any shred of respect you’ve ever earned in life.

  4. Wasn’t one of the women old enough to be his grandmother? Is he claiming he had consensual sex with her?

  5. Sure Kellen, that’s why you completely changed your appearance….. that’s what all innocent people do…..
    What a scum bag…..

    What money DO YOU HAVE LEFT?

    ————–

    This. My first thought was, “Kellen Winslow has money?”

  7. big tough football guy performs acts of violence against 3 separate women. Yeah, you’re tough. Jail for you.

  8. Remember when he declared himself a soldier. Not quite as satisfying declaring yourself a rapist so I guess, deny,deny,deny.

  9. Unfortunately none of the women could identify him in a line-up, appearance change or not. That being said, if he did do it, he definitely left evidence of some kind and they’ll find it. That will set up his next defense of I did it, but it was the CTE.

  10. Money grabs are for someone who sues you. Victims of crimes don’t cash a check when their attackers are sent to prison.

  11. In the grand scheme of things Winslow isn’t even that much richer than most guys. Plus unless you were a hard core NFL fan most people wouldn’t even know who he is. He better have a better defense than I’m rich this is a money grab.

  12. “It’s a money grab, and unfortunately that’s the society we live in now,” Winslow told FOX 5 in San Diego.

    Yeah, it’s a society in which people with money can hire a team of lawyers and get away with practically anything. Cry me a river. He conveniently failed to mention the incident in the Target parking lot. Yeah, he’s innocent. Not likely. This guy has been an entitled, first-class tool since college. Looks like it’s finally going to catch up with him. Too bad.

  13. Look up the word “delusional” in the dictionary and you will see this POS’s picture in the definition.

  14. First is a criminal case, then comes the civil case…. He may not be innocent, but I won’t join the mob in saying he’s guilty until it’s proven in the court of law.

  15. I think the most surprising thing to me about this story is that this guy is still rich. Wouldn’t you think a guy like this would of lost all his money by now?

  16. It’s pretty easy to confuse civil and criminal court….unless you’re talking about YOUR OWN case.

  17. Maybe I’m just weird like this, but I want to see this play out before passing judgement. The new accusations are just bizarre, and the older one could have any number of legitimate defense explanations.

  18. I’m not going to you’re outright guilty as none of us here know all the facts, but no, it doesn’t look good for you, Winslow. And you weren’t exactly man of the year when you played, either.

    Also, ditch the glasses. If you’re accused of rape, it helps to not look like a rapist.

  19. So, the dude that gets caught doing “funny” things while in New York says it is a money grab? Much like his NYC incident, let’s just say that Winslow is a “wack” job

  20. “To the people who know me out there, who know what type of person I am, know my character, my NFL friends and family, just my regular friends and family . . . they know who I am. And I’m an innocent guy. I’m an innocent man.”

    Funny, I haven’t exactly seen any of your “NFL friends and family” or just your “regular friends and family” clamoring to make their way to get in front of a TV camera and profess your fine character and innocence.

    Odd.

    Must be another case of media bias.

  21. I wonder how he stood on the Kavanaugh confirmation? I tend to agree with him, there has to be a standard of proof before you ruin someone.

    Surprisingly, eyewitness testimony has been proved to be horribly unreliable. They say that its the most corruptible evidence there is. But I still think this guy is totally guilty.

  23. Why do people just assume this guy or anyone for that matter is guilty? Sure, I get that there are cases (like the shooter in the Synagogue) where someone is caught red handed committing the crime, but outside of that should we not allow a trial and jury to make such determinations before removing the presumption of innocence?
