Now, on Monday, Sports Illustrated’s Jenny Vrentas published an account from a massage therapist named Mary who is not suing Watson, but still claims the Houston QB acted inappropriately during a session between the two in the fall of 2019.
“Mary makes clear that Watson did not touch her, nor did he force her into conducting any sexual acts,” Vrentas writes. “But she says he did engage in behavior that was both inappropriate and unlike any other interaction she’s had with any of her more than 1,000 clients—including other professional athletes—in her several years working as a massage therapist.”
Among the allegations Mary makes are that at one point during the massage, Watson said told her “that I could move [his penis] if I needed to” and that the Pro Bowler “thrusted his pelvis in the air” at different times during the meeting.
The full account can be found below, though we should warn it can be graphic and might disturb some readers.
Mary* is a massage therapist who worked with Deshaun Watson in 2019. She’s not among the plaintiffs who have filed suit & is not represented by Tony Buzbee. SI reached out to her. We reviewed messages/spoke to a contemporaneous witness to verify her story: https://t.co/EhgIuF3sOl

It is important to note that Watson has not been criminally charged with anything yet, though all of these allegations are beyond troublesome at this point.
In addition to the new SI article, the most recent lawsuits accuse Watson of deleting Instagram messages in which he tried to settle cases. Watson’s lawyer Rusty Hardin “categorically denies” this has taken place.
