Deshaun Watson attorney admits Texans QB DID have sex with masseuses but he claims they were 'ALL consensual'April 10, 2021
DESHAUN Watson's lawyer said the Texans quarterback did in fact have sex with several masseuses – but contended it was all consensual.
Rusty Hardin, Watson's attorney, acknowledged rumors that the football star did engage in sexual activity that were "sometimes consensual encounters" during his massage sessions.
He reiterated that "we've never run from it" about the allegations and that the question "has always been about consent."
"I'm not going into what it is, the nature, the numbers or with whom," Hardin said.
"The question always, that we have always been emphasizing: Never, at any time, under any circumstances … did this young man ever engage in anything that was not mutually desired by the other party," he continued.
The 25-year-old has been accused of sexual misconduct or assault in 22 lawsuits filed over the past month.
The women alleged Watson exposed himself or touched them with his genitals during massage sessions, with two women accusing him of sexual assault.
Houston Police are investigating at least one complaint involving Watson, with the NFL saying they are investigating the matter under its personal conduct policy.
Hardin said he has yet to hear back from either the police or NFL as of Friday, and does not know how many women have filed criminal complaints against Watson.
The Texans quarterback has denied any wrongdoing in his only public statement regarding the allegations.
