1. Mounting Masseuse Scandals
Allegations of Deshaun Watson’s scandals involving masseuses became widespread in 2021. Roughly 20 women represented by high-powered Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, initiated lawsuits against the Houston Texans quarterback. One alleged victim’s affidavit revealed, Watson “got more aggressive, forcefully telling her to move her hand down to his pubic area,” and “instructed her to slide her hand across his genitals” before forcing her to perform oral sex on him.
During another alleged incident, Watson allegedly rubbed his genitals against the masseuse’s hands. Then, he allegedly said, “I know you have a career and a reputation, and I know you would hate for someone to mess with yours, just like I don’t want anyone messing with mine.” Furthermore, these stories broke as he attempted to force the Texans into a trade. He immediately became tarnished goods and the situation seems to be getting worse as days pass.
