NFL star Antonio Brown files defamation suit against Memphis woman


MEMPHIS, Tenn. ( – NFL star Antonio Brown is counter-suing the Memphis woman who accused him of rape and sexual assault.

Brown is suing Britney Taylor for defamation and interfering with his NFL and sponsorship contracts. Taylor was a trainer for the Patriots’ wide receiver.

The countersuit claims that Brown and Taylor’s relationship was always consensual. It also claims Taylor sought a $1.6 million investment from Brown for her gymnastics business in Memphis after Brown inked a $72 million contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017.

Brown has requested a trial by jury.
