Houston lawyer Tony Buzbee, who filed a lawsuit against Deshaun Watson on Wednesday for sexual assault, has now posted on social media that the accusations against Watson involve more than one person. Buzbee is stating that he will be filing four different cases against Watson on the behalf of his clients.

Watson posted a message on his social media platforms this morning, which you read below:

As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff's lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.
The plaintiff's lawyer claims this isn't about money, but before filing the suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn't about money for me - it's about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that.

Watson hasn't made any more comments on social media since Buzbee posted to Instagram this afternoon claiming he will be filing multiple lawsuits. It looks like this situation is just getting started, and we will continue to update as more information becomes available.
