Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson found himself at the center of controversy this week when a series of deeply disturbing allegations were made against him.
It started on Monday, when a licensed massage therapist accused Watson of trying to force her to massage his “groin area” despite her protests. The details of that one incident were disconcerting in themselves.
Unfortunately, it didn’t end there.
As noted by ABC13, a second massage therapist then emerged and made similar accusations.
“The suit states Watson sent the masseuse messages on the app, told her exactly what he was looking for and an appointment was made for Aug. 28. The session was scheduled to take place at the Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa, where Watson told the woman he had his own suite,” ABC13 reported.
“The suit states Watson flew the masseuse from Atlanta, Georgia to Houston. During the session, the woman says she became uncomfortable with some of Watson’s requests but that she ‘wanted to give Watson the benefit of the doubt and she needed the business and the money as a single mom of two children.’
“When the masseuse ignored one of Watson’s requests, the suit states he became more aggressive. The woman said she became more and more uncomfortable she eventually stopped the massage and told Watson she needed to leave.”
On Thursday, a third accuser came forward.

Over the past several weeks Watson has been in the news for wanting to be traded from the Texans. After clearly revealing the one team he didn’t want to go to, a list of three teams he’d approve a trade to emerged.
It remains to be seen how his trade status will ultimately be impacted by these most recent accusations.
