Former NFL superstar Michael Irvin is being accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a woman. And it’s a doozy of a story. Details inside…
Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin is being accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
TMZ is reporting a 27-year-old woman filed a police report claiming the NFL Network analyst drugged her and raped her in his hotel room after they spent time at a bar on March 21st.
The former NFL superstar is DENYING all of her allegations, claiming he was only in the hotel room with her for 15 minutes before he left to hop on a flight out of Fort Lauderdale. He mentioned there was another man present in the hotel room while she was there.
Irvin’s lawyer, Larry Friedman, spoke up to address the woman’s allegations. He said the woman’s accusations are NOT true.
“Michael was in Ft. Lauderdale visiting his nieces and nephews at a track meet. He was also visiting his 90-year-old aunt and attending her birthday party. He was blindsided by news of these allegations.”
“The allegations are completely false. In the few hours since we’ve learned about them we’ve already discovered many red flags about this young woman’s background and the allegations she made against Michael. Even the complaint that she made specifically says she does not recall the events that took place. She was very drunk that night. Nothing happened and there was no assault.”
Unfortunately for the former Dallas Cowboys baller, this isn’t the first time a woman has come forward accusing him of sexual assault. In 2007, Irvin had a civil suit brought against him for sexual battery that was eventually settled out of court for an unspecified amount four years later.
