Antonio Brown denies new sexual misconduct allegations through lawyer


Antonio Brown's lawyer has been busy over the last seven days.

The New England Patriots wide receiver's attorney, Darren Heitner, released a statement Monday denying new allegations of sexual misconduct detailed in a Sports Illustrated report from earlier in the day.

In that report, an artist told author Robert Klemko that Brown approached her naked while she was painting a mural of Brown at his Pittsburgh-area home.

"I was about 40% done (with the mural) on the second day, and I’m on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt-ass naked, with a hand cloth covering his [penis] and starts having a conversation with me," the artist told Klemko.

The woman has not pressed charges against Brown, whom she claims also "ghosted" her after the incident and left her painting unfinished in his home.

This report comes six days after Brown's former trainer, Britney Taylor, accused the wide receiver of sexual assault and rape in a civil lawsuit last Tuesday.

Brown also denied those allegations via Heitner, but Taylor reportedly is meeting with the NFL on Monday, so it's possible the league could take action depending on what information comes to light.
