HOUSTON – After Houston attorney Tony Buzbee said in an Instagram post Tuesday night that he had filed a lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, the Texans quarterback made a statement looking forward to clearing his name .
Responding to the word of the lawsuit on Twitter, Watson said he was rejecting “an unsubstantiated six-digit settlement claim” and that it was “a matter of deleting my name and I’m looking forward to it”.
Buzbee did not specify the allegations against Watson in his contribution, but referred to the behavior towards women and later told FOX 26 in Houston that “Watson went too far with a woman who gave him a massage”.
“I have never treated a woman with anything other than the utmost respect,” said Watson in his statement.
Buzbee is known throughout the Houston area for his law firm and unsuccessful 2019 campaign against Mayor Sylvester Turner.
