New England Patriots executives were blinded by the rape allegations against newly acquired Antonio Brown, claiming they had no knowledge of the allegations until after they signed the wayward broad receiver for a one-year deal of $ 15 million on Saturday.

In a lawsuit, Brown is accused of being raped by his former fitness instructor Britney Taylor, who claims that he sexually abused her three times in 2017 and 2018.

The Patriots only learned of the charge on Tuesday evening when the trial was made public ESPN. In fact, the team still celebrated the recent acquisition of Brown, an All-Pro, on Tuesday in the hours before the trial came to light.

In fact, the team was so enthusiastic about Brown's arrival that quarterback Tom Brady told owner Robert Kraft: "I'm a million percent in & # 39;" said NBC Sports & # 39; Al Michaels.

Brown has denied all allegations by his lawyer.

The NFL will investigate the allegations, and there remains a possibility that Brown can be placed on the commissioner's exempt list, making him ineligible to play or even practice with his new team.

Last week, the Raiders destroyed the $ 30 million in guarantees in the deal after Brown confronted Mike Mayock with fines incurred during his non-invented absence of Raider's training hat. He was scheduled to play Monday for the Raiders against the Denver Broncos, but received his full release on Saturday before signing with the Patriots hours later.

It is now unclear whether Brown can play for New England on Sunday against the dolphins in his native Miami.

NFL star Antonio Brown is sued by a woman who claims to have raped her three times on three different occasions, confirms a lawsuit filed Tuesday

Under no circumstances does this organization approve of sexual violence or abuse. The competition has told us that they will investigate. We will not comment further as long as that investigation takes place. & # 39;

According to the lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Taylor says she was adopted by Brown as a personal trainer in 2017 – claiming that the first case of sexual violence occurred during a training session in June.

Taylor, a gymnast who first met Brown while they were both studying at Central Michigan University, says the 31-year-old & # 39; has exposed herself and kissed (her) without permission & # 39 ;, according to documents obtained by DailyMail.com.

She also described a second alleged incident & # 39; later that same month & # 39 ;, saying that Brown had stood behind her and masturbated while she watched television. Taylor did not know what he was doing and then said she was surprised when Brown & # 39; ejaculated on her back & # 39 ;, said the lawsuit.

Filed with the Federal Court in Florida, Brown claims that Taylor bragged about carrying out the alleged attack in & # 39; profane and angry texting & # 39; jes & # 39 ;.

As a result, Taylor, 28, ended her working relationship with Brown. However, a few months later, when the broad Patriot recipient contacted her and begged & # 39; for forgiveness, she agreed to admit, & # 39; swollen by his assurance that he was all sexual advances would strike & # 39 ;.

But on May 20, 2018, Taylor says that Brown has attacked her again, this time only pricked her to a bed, forced her face into a mattress, and forced her & # 39; has raped.

Taylor said she was trying to escape from Brown & # 39; s grasp, repeatedly shouting & # 39; no and stop & # 39; at him, but the desperate cries were said to fall on deaf ears and Brown was & # 39; too strong and physically overwhelmed & # 39 ;.

According to the documents, Brown then refused to get rid of her and then penetrated her.

& # 39; As a victim of Antonio Brown's rape, the decision to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision, & # 39; Taylor said in a statement from her lawyer. & # 39; I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the reports of other survivors of sexual violence. & # 39;

Taylor added that she is willing to collaborate with the NFL in a subsequent investigation. It is not yet clear whether she has reported her allegations to the police.

The trial, filed with the federal court in Florida, claims that Brown bragged to Taylor about carrying out the alleged attack in & # 39; profane and angry texting & # 39; jes & # 39;

Brown's attorney Darren Heitner tweeted a statement on behalf of Brown on Tuesday evening, in which he said his client denied any claim in the lawsuit.

In a later message, he added that his client & # 39; will not leave a stone undisturbed and will defend himself aggressively, including exercising all his rights in counter-cases & # 39 ;.

Heitner said that Brown was approached by his prosecutor in 2017, shortly after he signed a new contract to make him the best-paid broad receiver in the NFL.

& # 39; At that time, Mr. Brown was asked to invest $ 1.6 million dollars in the prosecutor's business project & # 39 ;, the attorney's statement said.

& # 39; Brown was not informed by his prosecutor that she had just been charged with a $ 30,000 IRS tax or that $ 300,000 of the $ 1.6 million so-called & # 39; investment & # 39; was to be used to purchase a property that was already owned by the prosecutor and her mother. & # 39;

Heitner says that Brown refused to invest in the scheme and that the prosecutor broke all communication with him.

However, she resurfaced in 2018 and offered to travel to Pennsylvania to South Florida to train Brown for the coming season.

& # 39; Then the prosecutor involved Mr. Brown in a personal personal relationship. Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was completely consensual, & the lawyer replied.

Brown's lawyer Darren Heitner tweeted a statement on behalf of Brown on Tuesday night and said his client denies any allegation in the lawsuit & # 39;

Heitner claims that even after Taylor's alleged claim of May 2018, she has continued to travel to Brown's Florida and Tennessee residences several times.

He says she continued communication with Brown during 2018 and says she even asked him for tickets to a football match in Pittsburgh Steelers in the winter of the same year.

& # 39; The prosecutor of Brown has continuous photos & # 39; s of Mr. Brown posted on her social media in an effort to financially take advantage of his celebrity, "Heitner said, adding that Brown & # 39; refuses to become a victim of what he thinks it's a grab. & # 39;

From the May 2018 incident, Heitner says that Taylor invited himself to spend an evening with Brown as his friends while they spent the night at adult entertainment bars in Miami.

& # 39; Instead of just leaving, as she had arrived, and returning to her hotel, Mr. Brown's prosecutor asked Mr. Brown to join her and return to (his) place of residence where the two were engaged in consensual sex. & # 39;

Taylor is a former gymnast who participated in Central Michigan University, where Brown played college football. She also attended Louisiana State University.

Taylor describes himself as a world-class & # 39; gymnast & # 39; in her suit and now has her own gym in Tennessee where she trains young gymnasts.

She seeks compensation for & # 39; physical injury, pain and suffering, humiliation, stress, anxiety, loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, and emotional pain and suffering & # 39 ;.

Taylor says she has been left so traumatized as a result of the three alleged attacks she has undergone & almost daily panic attacks, frequent suicidal ideas and insomnia. She has also lost a remarkable amount of weight – 30 pounds in a month – due to stress. & # 39;

She is looking for compensation, although a specific amount has not been specified.

Taylor has not yet responded to a DailyMail.com request for comment.

The lawsuit comes in the aftermath of Brown & # 39; s unpalatable exit from the Oakland Raiders, where he was released after fights with CEO Mike Mayock about fines.

He also recorded a heated telephone conversation with head coach Jon Gruden – who did not know he was being recorded – and posted it on social media.

Hours after his release, Brown was offered a one-year contract by Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots, a deal worth $ 15 million. The Patriots also have a $ 20 million option on Brown for the 2020 season.

& # 39; We are aware of the civil lawsuit filed against Antonio Brown earlier today, as well as the response from Antonio's representatives, & quot; said the Patriots early Wednesday morning in a statement.

& # 39; We take these allegations very seriously. Under no circumstances does this organization approve of sexual violence or abuse. The competition has told us that they will investigate. We have no further comments while that investigation is taking place. & # 39;

Brown can continue to play for the Patriots while legal proceedings are taking place because Taylor's complaints are part of a civil lawsuit rather than a criminal case.
