Adrien Broner will be forced to pay more than $800,000 to a sexual assault victim who sued Broner in 2018. According to TMZ, the victim claims that the boxer forced his tongue in her mouth in a Cleveland nightclub and didn’t stop until a friend of Broner’s pulled him off of her.
Broner pleads guilty to the offense earlier this year and is now paying what’s owed to her. According to the TMZ report, the judge believes that Broner acted maliciously and that the 6 figure award is necessary to “punish and deter him from engaging in similar conduct in the future.” The victim in the case reportedly went through months of therapy dealing with PTSD after the assault.
According to Forbes, the Cincinnati Native took home at least $10 million after his fight with Manny Pacquiao, so that 800k shouldn’t hurt his pockets too much but hopefully will serve its duty as a deterrent to future assaults.
