Earlier on Wednesday, Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown was accused of multiple incidents of domestic violence.
The woman behind the allegations, Diorra Marzette-Sanders, is Brown’s ex-girlfriend. She claims to have a child with the NFL’s highest-paid offensive tackle.
Marzette-Sanders’ allegations are damning, as noted in her suit against the veteran lineman.
“According to her suit, Marzette-Sanders says Brown first got violent with her at a restaurant in 2018 … slapping her face during a heated argument and leaving her mouth bloody and face bruised,” TMZ Sports reported. “She also claims he left her at the restaurant to find her own way home at 4 AM.”
Brown has now responded on social media, denying the allegations while noting he’ll have no further comment at this time.
That’s a pretty cookie-cutter response there. Brown’s attorney’s likely told him not to talk about the specifics of the allegations and lawsuit.
TMZ Sports later reported that authorities in California are currently investigating Brown over the allegations.
A seventh-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers back in 2015, Brown was traded to the Patriots during the 2018 NFL Draft.
He earned a Super Bowl title as New England’s starting left tackle last season before signing with Oakland this past March.
