Antonio Brown has a serious off-field issue with Britney Taylor's accusations of rape and sexual assault alone. But a new report says the Patriots wide receiver's problems go well beyond one isolated incident.
As part of a new investigative story by SI's Robert Klemko, Brown is accused of another incident with a woman that could at least be interpreted as sexual in nature. According to the report, Brown invited an unnamed female artist to his home to work on a painting of him. On just the second day of her work, she says Brown appeared nude behind her with only a small towel covering his genitals. She took his actions as "a clear sexual come-on," as Klemko reports.
Brown is also the subject of three domestic disturbances in the past four years. Police reports indicate one incident in which Brown threw a bottle of cologne and a bottle of lotion at girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss, who is the mother of three of his five children. In another, Brown called the police and said Kyriss was attempting to take his car and credit card because he wouldn't give her enough money to take care of their kids. No charges were filed in these incidents.
In a separate incident from January, a police report says Brown pushed Wiltrice Jackson, the mother of one of his children, and caused a cut on her left arm. Their dispute apparently began over Brown's refusal to pay for his daughter's hair appointment.
The SI story also fleshes out incidents already known about Brown, including an incident in which he threw furniture out of his home and nearly struck a toddler. The majority of the accusations against Brown, however, involve unpaid money.
The most well-known alleged victim of Brown's non-payments is chef Stefano Tedeschi, whom Brown allegedly refused to pay over $38,000 for a private dinner function. Brown allegedly found a severed salmon head in his freezer, but despite Tedeschi intending to use it for a soup, Brown took it as a mafia-style threat against him.
A former assistant, Sam Williams, told police that Brown owed him "back wages" and that Brown accused him of stealing a safe containing $50,000 in cash and jewelry as a way of justifying his lack of payment.
Dr. Victor Prisk filed a lawsuit seeking $11,500 in unpaid wages from Brown, after he had reluctantly taken on the receiver as a client. Car detailer Robert Leo says Brown owes him $16,000 from his time as his personal attendant and valet. A pet shop employee says Brown owes him more than $2,000 after he installed a piranha tank and the receiver didn't take care of it. He arrived to Brown's home to find a filthy tank filled with dead piranhas.
The list is growing for the people Brown have wronged. The list of people he has stiffed on payments is far longer than anything else. But the most disturbing accusations, of course, are the ones involving women and various forms of alleged assault.
Brown caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in his Patriots debut on Sunday. But the more things continue to pop up for him, it's fair to wonder how long he will last without something happening that's too disturbing for the Patriots and the NFL to ignore.
