Antonio Brown admonished the haters in a live video from Tom Brady's fitness center

The star National Football League receiver, signed by the Patriots over the weekend after he fell out with the Oakland Raiders, is accused in a civil lawsuit filed Tuesday of sexually assaulting and raping his former Bible study partner and physical trainer. Two incidents were said to happen in the same month of June 2017, while the other one was said to have happened nearly a year later in 2018.

When a reporter asked Brady whether he had any comment on the allegations, Brady replied, "No".

Days after the New England Patriots signed wide receiver Antonio Brown a rape allegation statement came out pertaining to Brown.

While Brown has denied the allegations and plans to countersue for civil extortion, it's yet another blemish on Brown as he attempts to revive his career with the Patriots.

Before the practice session, Belichick declined to answer numerous questions about Brown, including his status for Sunday's game at Miami. The most serious allegation from Taylor is that Brown raped her in May 2018.

Yahoo Sports added, per two sources familiar with talks between the franchise and league security officials, the Patriots and the NFL were unaware that a potential lawsuit against Brown was brewing.

If there was a team and players that could deal with the distraction known as Antonio Brown it is Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. There's also the possibility that Brown ends up on the commissioners exempt list. As the investigation gets underway, TMZ Sports caught up with Stephen Jackson to get his take on the matter, and Captain Jack made it clear that he's siding with AB.

The woman's filing alleges that she took and passed a lie detector test about the allegations. News broke of a federal civil suit against Brown, filed on behalf of Britney Taylor, on Tuesday night.

"Mr. Brown, whose hard work and dedication to his craft has allowed him to rise to the top of his profession, refuses to be the victim of what he believes to be a money grab", Heitner said in his statement.

What does sexual assault lawsuit filed against Brown mean?

Brown was originally traded from Pittsburgh to Oakland in the offseason.
