Deshaun Watson’s girlfriend Jilly Anais has stood by the Cleveland Browns quarterback’s side for years.
Regardless of what adversity Watson was facing, she was always there. When he was eventually free and clear to play football once again, she went back to being his number one supporter at games.
This week, Anais was on hand to watch the Browns face off against the Arizona Cardinals. Although the former squad easily beat the latter 27-0, it wasn’t without controversy.
Some at home called Anais out over her outfit choice to the game.

Beyond that, fans also took the opportunity to address Anais’ decision to stand by Watson despite the allegations that were previously made against him.
“Deshaun Cosby,” one fan wrote.
“Getting played by Deshaun and your proud of it,” another added, while also adding a clown emoji.
Watson’s legal woes are a matter of public record. Disturbing messages exist that make him look really bad, and troubling texts exist that seem to exonerate him. The whole saga surrounding him was really ugly all the way around – and Anais often found herself at the center of it.
Obviously Anais’ controversial toast is the thing that most people remember from that period of time, but the reality is that everything she was doing back then was ticking folks off.

Nevertheless, Anais always stood by her man. And he is seemingly standing by her as well.
It remains to be seen how Watson’s tenure in Cleveland will ultimately go. The team gave up a ton to get him.
Regardless of how Watson fares with the Browns, though – Anais figures to be a mainstay at all his games going forward no matter what.
