A report from The New York Times‘ Jenny Vrentas revealed that a Houston-based spa and the Texans “enabled” Deshaun Watson’s massage habit, specifically that the franchise provided non-disclosure agreements and facilities for his sessions.

The bombshell report comes after two civil lawsuits were filed in the span of a week, the most recent one on Monday. In total, Watson is facing 24 active civil lawsuits filed by massage therapists, each detailing graphic accounts of sexual harassment and sexual assault that occurred during massage therapy sessions. The accounts range from Watson allegedly refusing to cover his genitals to the quarterback “touching [a plaintiff] with his penis and trying to force her to perform oral sex on him.”

Each filing details similar accounts. In the latest, a Houston-area massage therapist alleges two incidents of misconduct against Watson in August 2020, in which the quarterback masturbated and ejaculated on the plaintiff without her consent. Watson allegedly “offered no apology or explanation for his conduct.” In a footnote of the lawsuit, the filing states that “the incident with Deshaun Watson caused Plaintiff to quit massage therapy altogether.”
