Another woman has filed a civil lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, bringing to 24 the number of women who have accused the Cleveland Browns quarterback of inappropriate sexual behavior during massage sessions.

The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff massaged Watson twice. The first session, according to the suit, was cut short because “Watson had to leave abruptly after answering a phone call.” The lawsuit says Watson scheduled a second massage a few days later, where he allegedly engaged in inappropriate behavior.

The lawsuit says the plaintiff “soon after left massage therapy.”

Monday’s lawsuit is the second to be filed against Watson in the past week. In a 23rd civil case filed May 31, the suit says the plaintiff had her first massage session with Watson in the summer of 2020 and her “behavior got worse.” During the third and final massage, she alleges Watson exposed himself to her, touched her between the legs and “repeatedly demanded” that she have sex with him.

Although two grand juries in Texas declined to bring criminal charges against Watson earlier this year, the NFL is investigating whether he violated its code of conduct and interviewed the quarterback in person last month in the part of his investigation. At the league’s spring meetings, commissioner Roger Goodell said he believed the NFL was nearing the end of its investigation, but he could not give a date for a possible decision.

Watson has denied any wrongdoing and, in his first press conference with the Browns on March 25, he said he had “never disrespected any woman”.
