Six supposedly will be filed. A third lawsuit against Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson alleging misconduct during a massage has landed.

Via TMZ.com, the third plaintiff (who like the others proceeds under the “Jane Doe” pseudonym) claims that Watson forced her to perform oral sex during a December 28, 2020 massage.

The incident allegedly happened at a Houston office building. The plaintiff claims that, as the massage proceeded, Watson “got more aggressive” and eventually “coerced her to move her mouth toward his penis, forcing her to perform oral sex on him.”

The plaintiff claims she did not consent to the conduct, and that the “blacked out for a few minutes from the fear.”

She’s represented by Houston lawyer Tony Buzbee, who claims that six total assault lawsuits will be filed against Watson.

  1. Ruh Roh, this is getting serious, NFL Suspension serious. can’t help but wonder if the Huston organization would be so nefarious as to concoct all of this to quash his trade prospects so he has no choice but to play for them? no organization with Millions of dollars at stake would ever do such a thing, would they?

  2. What could happen next?

    At this point who would offer a trade? Too many unknowns.

  3. This dude is screwed. Even if it’s not as bad as it sounds, the pattern alone is just weird. Rich famous dude needs to get weird in a massage booth? Why? Women throw themselves at star athletes and he’s doing this kind of thing? Just so weird.

  4. Innocent until proven guilty. I do wonder why in mega millionaire would ever get a private message. It seems to invite lawsuits. As the litigants stack up you have to wonder if there is an issue with Watson.

  5. Hmmm thought he was such a stand up guy with the pieces the NFL morning shows were running on him the last couple of years.

  6. I hate these stories. You never really know the truth. And the two narratives are impossible to reconcile. You either believe one way or the other, or just push back from the table, let it play out, and still never know the truth.

  7. On the positive side the Texans won’t have to worry about trading him. Of course most suspended players aren’t traded…

  8. I’m going to be shocked if these are real. Watson has been nothing but a high-character guy in Houston. Never a whisper of indiscretion in college or any time as a pro until Houston flubbed their promises to him.

    This just does not add up to any other observable piece of information that I have seen on him.

  9. Wow Houston screwed this up ROYALLY. A month ago they could have gotten at least 3 firsts and change for Deshaun and not have to deal with the PR nightmare/possible loss of player. Now they probably can’t trade him for a sack of footballs.

  10. Going to let this play out as believing women is something that should be done. At the same time however we’ve seen some less than honest people jump in these trains. Thus it doesn’t help that Tony Buzbee is not a high character guy. Weird scandals, and ego driven lawsuits, seem follow that man.

  11. I am not saying I do not believe these claims but, this news is coming out at an extraordinary time. Someone wants the league to suspend him, not to have to pay him for the lost season if he wants to sit it out.

  12. This is getting worse by the minute, and the one aspect of all of these allegations that’s the most glaring (if any of this is true) is the fact that he apparently enjoyed visiting with massage therapists, and he did this frequently and alone. If it can be proven that he regularly was meeting these women at various locations on a regular basis alone it’s going to be next to impossible for him to prove these things never happened.

  13. Watson not being arrested for a crime doesn’t mean a crime wasn’t reported. It may have been reported and investigated with a district attorney declining to file charges, or that an investigation is underway.
    Since victims can’t arrest perpetrators, their recourse under Texas law is to file a civil suit like they’re doing now.

  14. Didn’t Watson say he wanted to be a Texan for a long time and signed a contract confirming that. Then he lied and said he doesn’t want to play for the team. Hmmmmmmmm. Six different woman making claims. Can you really believe Watson?

  15. I’m an innocent until proven guilty guy like everyone jumping to defend Watson and I admit the timing definitely LOOKS odd given his trade demands. But how many suits does it take to make people actually give these women the benefit of the doubt as well? One and it’s a frame job, two and it’s a more elaborate hoax, now we’re at 3 with more to come and it’s the lawyer used to be the owner’s neighbor…How will people like that spin it after 6 are filed? Everyone should stop jumping to attack either side until we all have a lot more information.

  16. Remember they are allegations, not proven cases. While he should get benefit of the doubt, that is not how our country works anymore.

  17. All the dopes saying they should have traded him weeks ago don’t realize even if they did, the trade wouldn’t have been official until yesterday. Even if a trade was made a team could have reneged.

  18. This is breaking my heart,….because I like this dude. The more women that come forward the worse this looks for him.

    There were ZERO criminal complaints filed in any of these cases. Not a single person went to the police or filed charges..

  20. Just because he looks like a nice guy doesn’t mean he is. The comments here are the reason most assault cases aren’t pursued criminally. Six different women? How many others remained quiet because they didn’t think anyone would believe them? I’m guessing six won’t be the end of the story.

  21. I’d prefer all the facts came out before making a judgement. I know that is crazy in this day and age.

  22. Where i certainly hope this isn’t true, presumed innocence is what we are entitled to in a court room, but not in a court of public opinion. Just because someone has a good public reputation, doesnt guarantee that there may not be some dark secrets that aren’t public.

    If he is innocent, i hope he uses all the resources at his disposal to go after the people accusing him. But if he is guilty….. I suspect playing for the Texans isn’t the worst thing that will happen to him…..

  23. In some weird kind of way, I think this helps Houston. They are better off keeping him and they can now say that he doesn’t have the correct trade value.

    Maybe the Texans organization can throw their support behind him and they can repair the damage in the relationship by helping him through this.

    Deshawn can get off his high horse as it pertains to organizational culture and use this as a reminder that as a player, sometimes, it’s just better to shut up and play football…

  24. Same lawyer…all same time…all unrelated..by what seems to be a completely unscrupulous lawyer…with no crime reported at the time…….I call BS

  25. I’m female and believe that most of these are true. However given that someone like him is an ideal target for a false accusation, why wouldn’t you bring a witness or tape the whole thing?

  26. Maybe when he said he would never play for the Texans again, he meant to say play in the NFL again.

  27. Yea we all know the NFL is looking into it just as how many other cases not complementary toward the NFL , they have left slide by

  28. I see him going to the Panthers for a 12th round pick in 2025. Oh wait…they only have 7 rounds now, almost forgot. 🙂

  29. Something isnt right about this all these suits are from the same attorney and none of these allegations have been investigated by the police. This looks like a scam to get money. And remember DeAndre Baker and how all yal convicted him im the court of public opinion how about you let due process take place.

  30. I’m not saying dude is innocent in all this, but the timing of all six alleged victims coming out at once is questionable.

  31. Now there is news that there are text messages from Watson to one of these women, apologizing for exposing himself. And if it were just one allegation, then it’s just a he said, she said. But multiple separate law suits?

    And I understand that athletes want massage. They’re sore, it helps with recovery, great. Cost is not an issue like it is for the average person. But WHY does a famous athlete have to have a woman give him a massage in the privacy of his own home or in a suite that he’s reserved simply for the massage? I know Brady gets massages all the time and considers it part of his recovery, but he has a man doing it in his home when his kids are there in the room, talking to him and his team mate Edelman is sitting there having a conversation. Just the fact that he is routinely setting up appointments with women and reserving hotel suites to have a massage, lends credibility to the women’s accounts. And it wouldn’t be the first time an athlete in the public eye was not really good at looking into the camera and lying his butt off.

    =================

    Whether it’s true or not, it’s a good reminder that we don’t really know anyone who we don’t personally know. We just hear about them. And the higher their social status, the more controlled that “hearing about” is.

  33. Either we have the next making of a Darren Sharper or the Texans are trying to make Watson untradeable as no team will be willing to give up anything to take on a PR nightmare.

    Either way the court of public opinion will destroy Watson’s endorsement deals.

    Disagree. Hearing them out is what should be done and then weighing their statements and conducting a fair impartial investigation into the accusation. Blindly believing someone is never a good position to take. There are some former Duke lacrosse players who can testify to that.

  35. Not one incident involves the law, but they all involve the same lawyer, who just happens to be neighbors with the owner. Seems to me that the Texans are guilty of some cover up, as the lawyer claims this was all public knowledge and you can look it up. Yeah right, that’s why no one has said boo until now. The fish in that can sure is stinky.

  36. If it’s true that there are text messages, and he’s admitting inappropriate behavior it’s O V E R

  37. How mad would the Cards fans be if they traded Murray for Watson, as a log of media members were suggesting.

  38. It’s not like they can’t protect themselves. He’s not a ripped defensive end at 6 5 and 270 lbs.. just get away from him.

    Congratulations, you win the award for “most ignorant comment on this thread”. Which is tough to do.

  40. Maybe they can relegate the Texans like in the Champions league? Because they arent a NFL team now, what a total dumpster fire.

  41. Watson’s character is in question. Always has been and it’s been a big secret for a while now.

  42. note that these are lawsuits not criminal charges. Whatever he did the law did not feel it was criminal or they didn’t have evidence enough to charge him. Still no alleged victims names have come out either. I’m sorry but something seems wrong. These folks are suing him (monetary compensation) for something that the law won’t touch. I want to reserve judgement until the story comes out but at first pass this raises some basic questions.
