Antonio Brown is being sued by his former trainer who accused him in a lawsuit filed Tuesday of sexually assaulting her three times from June 2017-May 2018. The New England Patriots wide receiver is planning to counter sue, according to a report.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in the Southern District of Florida, a woman named Britney Taylor sued Brown seeking compensation for “physical injuries, pain and suffering, humiliation, embarrassment, stress and anxiety, loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, and emotional pain and suffering.” Taylor and Brown know each other from their time as athletes at Central Michigan, where Taylor was a gymnast. You can read about her allegations here.

Brown’s attorney responded to the lawsuit with a statement declaring the suit a “money grab.” According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Brown is planning to sue Taylor for civil extortion.

Brown was traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders in March. Brown was released by the Raiders on Saturday after a tumultuous offseason and signed a 1-year deal with the New England Patriots worth $10 million guaranteed and as much as $15 million.
