A story has emerged that ties the Houston Texans to deshaun Watson’s sexual misconduct. The Houston Texans have settled with 30 women alleging sexual misconduct with Watson. The Texans are accused of ignoring sexual misconduct claims against Watson while arranging hotel suites for Watson to meet massage therapists. They also gave Watson nondisclosure agreements to sign that protect Watson from unwanted attention from random women he found on social media.
Texans provided deshaun watson with a membership to the Houstonian
The Houston Texans, who gave Watson a membership to The Houstonian, were implicated in the Watson case. The Texans provided Watson with a membership to the luxury hotel and spa, which Watson used to schedule massages. The Texans did not know about these massages, and the Texans provided resources to support Watson’s practice outside the team. In fact, Watson admitted in his deposition that Texans provided him with “a place” at The Houstonian, which included a fitness club and dining. He even set up massage appointments in the hotel, which were conducted by seven women.
While the Texans are not obligated to settle such lawsuits, they have the right to do so. Watson was fined in the NFL last season after a grand jury declined to indict him for hitting Garner. However, his suspension is expected to be lengthy. The NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told reporters that settlements do not affect the disciplinary process.
The NFL has been monitoring the case, but has not suspended the football player pending the outcome of the civil lawsuits. The plaintiffs’ attorneys are seeking documentation about the Houstonian, including records of payments made to the hotel and the rooms rented. They also want to review all correspondence between Deshaun and the Texans. The Texans also declined to comment on the case.
Texans paid for deshaun watson’s massages
It is unclear how many massages Watson got while working at the Houston Hilton, but it’s clear that Texans paid for the treatments. According to the Texans’ director of security, Watson asked the massage therapists to sign an NDA before working with him. Several women reported the incidents to police and filed civil lawsuits against him. Texans did not charge Watson with any criminal activity, but workers said he was engaging in sexually inappropriate behavior.
The Texans’ investigation revealed that Watson’s girlfriend was aware of his conduct and allegedly gave him a nondisclosure agreement. However, the therapists were unaware of the nondisclosure agreement and allegedly turned a blind eye to the behavior. Nonetheless, the Houston Texans’ investigation showed that they did nothing to prevent Watson from violating the nondisclosure agreement.
The Houston Texans allegedly provided Deshaun Watson with a membership to a private club in which he received massages from at least 66 women. Some of the women alleged sexual misconduct occurred during the sessions, and the NFL team provided Watson with the venue and nondisclosure agreements to protect the team. Watson never apologized for his behavior. However, some of the women accused Watson of brushing naked body parts against them during these massages.
In addition to the women who claim that Watson paid them for their services, the Texans also denied them. As a result, the Texans’ failure to act in time to prevent such misconduct was deemed a civil conspiracy, and the team paid Watson to give them massages. It’s not clear how much the Texans paid for Watson’s massages.
Texans provided deshaun watson with a NDA to ‘protect himself’ from random women he was finding on Instagram
The Houston Texans have reportedly received a lawsuit from a woman alleging that Watson sexually assaulted her during massage therapy sessions. The woman, Toi Garner, filed the lawsuit in the Harris County District Court, alleging that the NFL permitted the player to engage in sexual misconduct. She also claims that a police detective investigated 10 Watson complaints and found receipts for massage therapy using the Cash App. Watson had used 50 different massage therapists in a 17-month period, and the detective said she thought the former quarterback had committed crimes.
The Texans provided Watson with an NDA to protect him from the lawsuits by providing him with a non-disclosure agreement to avoid unwanted contact with the women. The Texans’ response to the suit suggests that they knew about Watson’s alleged sexual misconduct long before it was revealed. The NFL has denied all accusations, citing the “lack of evidence.”
The Houston Texans are not the only ones who failed to investigate the massage therapist’s threats. In addition to not investigating the allegations of sexual misconduct, the Texans left an NDA agreement for Watson to sign on future appointments. While the Texans may not have been aware of Smith’s threats to expose Watson, they were also unwilling to take action against the Houston Texans.
Texans’ role in deshaun watson’s sexual misconduct
The Houston Texans have settled with 30 women who accused Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct. Six of the women did not file suit, but a complaint was filed and the Houston Police Department began an investigation. A grand jury in Harris County declined to press charges. Whether Watson will face punishment in the NFL remains to be seen, but if he’s acquitted of the accusations, a settlement will likely be reached.
While the NFL has not yet made a decision on Watson’s future, the team may have known of his behavior as early as March 2020. A woman named Ashley Solis filed a lawsuit against Watson in March 2020 after claiming that he exposed himself during a massage session. She said that Watson asked her to touch his penis and even tried to kiss her. The Texans’ role in Watson’s sexual misconduct is still unclear, but the team has a history of handling complaints against athletes and players.
Texans director of security Brent Naccara confirmed to ESPN that Watson gave two women non-disclosure agreements in an effort to protect her identity and avoid a lawsuit. The NDA was in Watson’s locker at the NRG Stadium, which is why the woman was able to post his phone number on social media. As the owner of an independent massage therapy business, Joni Honn has been providing therapy services to Texans since 2002. She worked closely with the franchise’s security staff.
Texans’ settlement with 30 women
A New York Times investigation has revealed that the Houston Texans are resolving all cases against Deshaun Watson quickly. Twenty of the thirty women who filed lawsuits against him in the past year settled their lawsuits, and the other six remain pending. The women alleged that Watson abused them by kissing them, exposing themselves, and forcing them to have oral sex. The New York Times reports that Watson’s team representative provided the plaintiffs with a nondisclosure agreement to protect his professional reputation, but a woman alleged that Watson abused her in a sexual way and forced her to engage in oral sex. As a result of the Texans’ quick settlement, Watson’s case is likely to be dismissed with prejudice.
In June, Buzbee named the Houston Texans as a defendant in the Watson misconduct lawsuits. The suit alleges that the team provided Watson with a membership to a Houston hotel and gave him a nondisclosure agreement to use during appointments. The New York Times reported that multiple women made similar claims against Watson. The Texans, Watson’s team, and the Houston hotel’s co-owners refused to admit any wrongdoing.
The Texans declined to comment on the New York Times’ report and later said they were unaware of the incident until March 2021. The NFL announced last month that it was “nearing” the end of its investigation period, and the next decision is expected to be announced in the coming days. The team is currently considering Watson’s future. They also said that they would consider discipline for Watson.
Texans’ refusal to indict Watson
Deshaun Watson’s future in the Houston Texans’ offense is uncertain after a grand jury declined to indict him in a sexual misconduct case. Twenty-two women have filed lawsuits against Watson alleging sexual harassment and assault. The complaints detail instances in which Watson exposed himself, touched the plaintiffs’ penises, and kissed them against their will. One woman even alleged that Watson forced her to perform oral sex. After the initial criminal complaint against Watson was filed, Houston police started investigating Watson. The FBI was also reviewing the allegations against him.
Deshaun Watson’s future in the Houston Texans is uncertain, and his current legal woes are not helping his case. A grand jury in Harris County, Texas, declined to indict Watson in nine of the 10 alleged crimes. Another grand jury had reportedly considered indicting Watson for the 10th accusation. The NFL, the Houston Police Department, and the Texans’ refusal to indict Watson have not responded to Tom Selleck’s statement.
In the meantime, the lawsuit claims that the Texans knew about the allegations against Watson as early as March 2020. The Texans are not announcing a decision on whether to indict Watson at this time. Despite the fact that the Texans declined to indict Watson, the civil suits against Watson are likely to mount. They will likely face more cases as Watson continues to play in the NFL.
