Deshaun Watson and his girlfriend Jilly Anais sparked controversy for different things this week.
In Watson’s case, it was the continued emergence of new details regarding his alleged sexual improprieties involving various massage therapists.
Specifically, a new report from the New York Times suggested that he saw at least 66 different women for massage appointments over a 17-month span between 2019 and 2021. Among that group were the 24 women who have filed lawsuits against Watson.
On the heels of that NYT exposé, Anais posted something on social media that really rubbed folks the wrong way.

Responses to the video were brutal.
“She don’t care she want the money,” wrote one person.
“Make sure you line up a new qb once deshaun out the league,” wrote another.
“[Your] man gettin[g] a massage,” replied a third.
This isn’t he first time in recent weeks Anais landed in the headlines. Her reaction to Watson’s lawyer seemingly admitting that his client had cheated on his longtime girlfriend also irked some.
And then of course she and Watson celebrated in very provocative fashion when news emerged that Watson wouldn’t face any criminal charges for his deeds.
All in all, people just seem unhappy with Anais for standing by her man. A lot of Watson’s disturbing DMs and text messages have come out in the last few months and revealed in vivid detail his odd alleged sexual tendencies. Understandably, that has left a bad taste in folks’ mouths.

Many believed that this Watson story would simmer down and go away as time went on, but thus far it hasn’t.
How will all this ultimately end up shaking out for the various parties involved?
