Lawyer Tony Buzbee shoots Dehaun Watson from Texan whereas he’s veiled
Attorney Tony Buzbee took a veiled shot at Deshaun Watson on Monday and referred to the Texas quarterback in an Instagram post while he and his wife were on their honeymoon in Greece.
Buzbee represents 22 women who have filed civil lawsuits against Watson for alleging he sexually abused or molested them during massage sessions in 2020 and 2021. The Houston-based attorney described his own 90-minute massage that made the woman feel “not threatened,” humiliated, or in any way uncomfortable. “
“It was actually nice and relaxing – I fell asleep,” said Buzbee. “But note, it was professional; I didn’t make weird requests, I didn’t nibble on the table, I never completely undressed, and I never acted like a legitimate horny teenager. I’m pretty sure too Tina, the massage professional, did not feel threatened, humiliated or uncomfortable in any way.
“Massage therapy is a legitimate profession made up of trained professionals trying to make a living. This is how it should be.”

Allegations against Watson include allegations that he insisted on either being completely naked or just laying a small towel over his genitals during the sessions. The suits also claim that he positioned or moved so that his genitals touch the women who massage him.
Watson initially rejected the allegations against him. Watson’s attorney Rusty Hardin also released a joint statement from 18 women massaging Watson, claiming the allegations against him were based on their experience. Hardin later claimed that his client’s sexual encounters with the women massaging him were consensual.
The Texans will open their training camp on July 28, but it is unclear whether Watson will report to the camp.
