Antonio Brown’s response to Britney Taylor’s lawsuit focuses on a confidentiality agreement

PFT has obtained the document filed by Antonio Brown in response to the lawsuit filed against him by Britney Taylor. That document mentions on multiple occasions another document that apparently is critical to a full understanding of the situation.

At page 5 of his response to the complaint filed in the state-court proceeding that was initiated on September 10, Brown mentions for the first time that he “executed a confidentiality agreement under duress.” He claims that the confidentiality agreement “precludes him from discussing a number of relevant events.”

“Unless Taylor waives the restrictive requirements of the confidentiality agreement or a Court Order is entered regarding the same, Brown will remain unable to recite these events, which he deems essential to the Court’s understanding of his defense and the counterclaims asserted herein,” Brown explains.

Brown contends that Taylor declined while meeting with NFL investigators to waive the terms of the confidentiality agreement, and Brown asserts that, after the confidentiality agreement is properly addressed, his counterclaim will be amended “to add a count of civil conspiracy naming all at-fault parties.”

The document is again mentioned at page 32, as part of Brown’s counterclaim: “On March 8, 2019 . . . Brown’s legal representative executed a confidentiality agreement under duress, which precludes him from discussing a number of relevant events that have since transpired — all of which relate to the civil conspiracy to extort, defraud, defame and harass Brown.”

It’s possible, if not likely, that Brown was threatened with immediate litigation in March 2019, as he was in the midst of trying to finagle a trade from the Steelers to a new team (and a new contract), that Taylor’s lawyer(s) explained the lawsuit would not be filed while settlement discussions commenced, and that Taylor’s lawyer(s) insisted on the signing of a confidentiality agreement regarding the settlement talks. If that’s the case, however, the confidentiality agreement should have included protections for Brown that would allow him to tell his story, to the extent that his story is relevant to his defense or his counterclaim.

Regardless, there seems to be more to this story, and that once the confidentiality agreement is extinguished, the rest of the story will emerge.

  1. And the other clown show continues. This dude clearly has a multiple personality disorder. Drew can try all the damage control in the world he wants, but the Titanic is still sinking.

  2. Is it me or is it really strange that this story pretty much blew up right after Brown signed with the Patriots and went away right after the PAtriots cut Brown…. I mean the story dates back to when he was leaving Pittsburgh… stayed quite all that time and the BOOM… front page news for a couple of weeks, Pats cut Brown…. and story all but goes away…. Makes you wonder many things

  3. “On March 8, 2019 . . . Brown’s legal representative executed a confidentiality agreement under duress”

    There’s a laughable claim. Attorney’s aren’t “under duress”, though their clients may be. If an attorney did so in that situation he would be a pretty bad representative and should know enough to openly challenge the demand to sign such a document.

  4. Brown’s problem is he has too big of a heart to help people. Even undeserving people. Obviously there’s more to this story. Despite the noise, he seems like a good guy at his core. Obviously the GOAT feels the same way. If Tom Brady invites you to stay at his house you’re probably one of the good ones.

    I’m so shocked a patriot fan feels persecuted. You guys have it so rough.

  6. He’s the one who signed the confidentiality agreement? And she still able to sue him? This whole thing seems fishy he must’ve made her get an abortion or something that’s the only thing I can think of where he would sign and NDA and still be able to be sued

  7. Of course there’s more to the story but in our rush to destroy the accused society we live in Brown never got a chance to defend himself. Something definitely happened between these two that is clear, and no one will ever know if she was a willing participant or not, but its clear now that once her and her lawyers weren’t able to get the 7 figures they were after initially they brought the lawsuit. The Patriots now have even more ammunition to withhold all the unpaid money from Brown because it’s clear this started while he was still a Steeler, and the Steelers could potentially be in hot water if it comes out that they knew about this situation and didn’t disclose it to the Raiders. This is getting worse by the minute

  8. At this point AB has zero credibility and anything he says should be greeted with an appropriate amount of skepticism.

    If he had been smart he would have taken care of this LONG ago. He can try to blame all this stuff on her but she didn’t cause him to be the whackjob he was in Oakland. He did all this to himself and trying to blame someone else is pathetic.

    It seems every time he’s in the news he just digs his own whole deeper and deeper. He just doesn’t get it.

  9. AB should ask the Patriots for help.
    After all, N.E. was able to wiggle out of trouble and get wrist slaps on both Spygate and Deflategate, so why not seek their advice on the matter?

  10. every kid makes mistakes
    its not who you were then
    the NFL, but who you are now
    this appears to be strictly a money grab
    not a woman seeking justice
    while this plays out in court
    AB should be allowed to make a living
