Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused of three separate incidents of sexual assault in a lawsuit filed by a former trainer according to a report from the New York Times on Tuesday evening. The incidents took place in 2017 and 2018 according to the report.

"The lawsuit says that Brown — in three separate incidents, two in June 2017 and another in May 2018 — sexually assaulted a woman named Britney Taylor, a gymnast whom he met while they were attending Central Michigan together and whom he later hired as a trainer.

Brown's legal team denied the accusations in a statement released on Twitter shortly after the Times article was released.
