Britney Taylor is a former trainer for New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown who is has accused him of rape. In a federal lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida, Taylor names three incidences in which she says Brown sexually assaulted her and forced sexual intercourse.
The lawsuit states Brown exposed himself to the 28-year-old Taylor, during two separate training sessions in 2017, before raping her in 2018. During the first instance with Brown, she claims he exposed himself and kissed her without permission. A month later, Taylor claims that she was at Brown’s home watching TV when the All-Pro athlete started masturbating and ejaculated on her back, which he later bragged about via text messages.
According to the lawsuit, Taylor was “shocked and deeply embarrassed by this assault and his degrading messages,” and “cut off her working relationship with Brown.” However, after Brown apologized and begged for her forgiveness, she was “swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances.”
On May 20, 2018, Taylor detailed the evening in which Brown forced her down onto a bed and “forcibly raped her.” While she “shouted ‘no’ and stop,’ Brown refused and penetrated her.”
Britney released the following statement, “As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision. I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault. Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape. I will cooperate with the NFL and any other agencies; however, at this time, I respectfully request that the media please respect my privacy.”
Taylor is a former gymnast who competed collegiately at Central Michigan University, where Brown played college football, and at Louisiana State University. She now owns a gym where she trains young gymnasts in Tennessee.
