Amid an increasing number of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior allegations against Texas quarterback Deshaun Watson, and after police reportedly opened an investigation, Nike has ended its relationship with the 25-year-old. </ In a statement to CNBC, the company said, “We are deeply concerned about the disturbing allegations and have suspended Deshaun Watson. We will continue to monitor the situation closely. “
So far, 22 women have filed lawsuits against Watson, all massage therapists, accusing him of improper behavior during the massages. Some of them said he had forced them to engage in sexual acts. Watson has denied any wrongdoing.
On Tuesday, two women – Ashley Solis and Lauren Baxley – came forward and identified themselves as prosecutors. Solis said she was “no longer afraid” and “here to regain power and control.” The NFL has opened an investigation into Watson, and league spokesman Brian McCarthy labeled the allegations as « deeply disturbing ».
