Christina Scavo, Shannon O’Toole Slam Jets as ‘Hot Bed of Sexual Harassment’
He may have wrapped up his 20th season as a professional football player, but Brett Favre is not riding off quietly into the sunset. Less than a week after the NFL fined Favre $50,000 for not cooperating with their investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by Jenn Sterger, good ‘ole number four was hit with a lawsuit that features more damning allegations.
The allegations come from Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, two former massage therapists for the Jets who were fired. The women first went public with their allegations against Favre in October after reading about the Jenn Sterger incident and described Favre as a creeper who was texting them to try and set up booty calls. The women clearly were empowered by Sterger’s situation to file a suit, which names Favre, the Jets, and Lisa Ripi, the woman who hires massage therapists on behalf of the team, as the defendants.
Favre was accused of trying to set up a threesome between himself, one of the massage therapists, and another woman. Additionally, the suit alleges that the Jets’ locker room and training camp are “a hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior.” As if things weren’t already bad enough with the Favre-Sterger case, this comes after current Jets coach Rex Ryan was publicly embarrassed because of his foot fetish and sexual deviancy. Something tells me Favre will end up paying more than $50,000 this time.
