The Texans’ star quarterback immediately jumped to defend his name on social media, stating, “As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff’s lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit against me,” wrote Watson. “I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.”

Watson also said that the woman’s attorney, Tony Buzbee, “made a baseless six-figure settlement demand.” Buzbee announced the filing, saying via IG, “This case we just filed against Watson isn’t about money—it’s about dignity and stopping behavior that should be stopped, NOW! Stay tuned for details,” adding, “LET ME SAY THIS. I’m a Marine. I’m not easily intimidated.”
