A new development surrounding the Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson took place on Tuesday after a judge in Texas ruled that the 26-year-old must say whether he had intercourse with 18 massage therapists who had supported him last year following criminal complaints.

Cleveland’s controversial QB has only 30 days to comply, as per USA Today. The player has been told to provide other information about his massage history since 2019, which also includes any language in his contract with the Houston Texans related to massages. Prior to this, Watson refrained to address his past with the therapists.

Previously, two grand juries have declined to indict the former Texans’ QB on 10 criminal complaints that were filed with the Houston Police. The player is involved in lawsuits and has been accused by 22 women of harassment and sexual misconduct during therapy sessions. Reportedly, many of these sessions were arranged by Watson by reaching out on social media in 2020 and 2021.

Going forward, Watson through his attorney asked for reasoning at a Tuesday hearing in Harris county when Judge Rabeea Sultan Collier ruled in the plaintiff’s favor. However, Collier responded “the objection is overruled, thank you,” as per USA Today.

After Cleveland announced Watson to the lineup last month, Watson denied the allegations and it was the first time the player has responded directly about the matter, according to The Guardian.

“I’ve never assaulted or disrespected or harassed any woman in my life. I’ve never done these things people are alleging,” the three-time Pro Bowler said.
